Fajin’s post is very common what I have hear in any style of Martial Arts, Qigong & Meditation I have practiced over the last 20+ years. I think many Master get zeroed in on for their openness & popularity. They suddenly get critiqued by all; is what Master Chia taught in the early 1980’s in China Town in N. Y. exactly the percise way he was taught ? I doubt very much so, they had to be modfied into english (english and chinese thought do not translate exactly the same), they had to be presented so it focuses on the practice; they had to be presented so general public can try and grasp the practice’s.
I have studied these practice with Master Chia back when I first started, (early 1980’s), back in mid (1990’s) and have seen some of the new DVD presentations of the same Fusions etc. They have developed better and are authentic to me and do deliver excellent results.
The Masters of yesterday are gone. We cannot bring them back ever again we immortalize them through our creative writing and idolization; which is not bad it is enjoyable to remember might of what was.
I think Master Chia’s teacher is smiling and very happy to see that his years of interperting the practices have came to this point so far, through dedication of only a few teachers out in the public. And if we had been taught these practice’s through his creative mind and even creation who care’s?….they do work if you practice daily. Mantak Chia, Michael Winn, Ron Diana, etc. all give/gave there interpetation and you know what they all are great; they all have their soul captured in the practice, and it gives anyone variation, creativity & ways to build from.
So will the real Master please take steps forward…suprise it will be all of us after years of dedication and belief in a system. I don’t know this David Shen (which is a alias anyway) hopefully this subject on him won’t pop up again ..it takes up two much bandwidth on the system.
I am sure Michael will grant us a great cheer to this post by Fajin, which is a valid question I guess if you are new. Fajin you can’t go wrong with Michael’s practice or Mantak Chia’s they are both achieve the same goals. Good luck too you…snowlion
