Nei Gong 13 Exercises Illustrated and the meaning of Xingyi Explained
by Bao Xianting
originally published 1926

The first part of the book introduces a practice of 13 Nei Gong Exercises. These exercises use physical movement, breathing, and intention (Yi). These exercises are accompanied by self massage and hitting (paida). The goal of the exercises is to build energy and send it to every part of the body. Additionally, a large part of the training involves filling the membranes and making them as strong as the tendons and the bones. Although it is not stated in the book, this training seems to be a method of iron body training.

The training prohibitions, the sequence of training, the methods of hitting and rubbing, the Nei Gong Exercises, and the self massage are all covered in detail. Additionally, there are also in-depth sections on the theory behind the training.

These sections on the theory are where this book really shines. It is very rare to have this much detail given so freely. These sections helped me to understand some other practices I have learned.

The second part of this book covers the oral teaching that the author received from his Xing Yi teacher.

Although the book is short, it is packed with information. Even the author in the postscript states, "Have a strategy to exert yourself in this lifetime. Strengthen the body through exercise. Be careful of this good fortune. Do not neglect it just because this book is short."

You can take a look at the table of contents to get an idea of what this book covers:

thanks for the support.

that shipping seems a bit steep-
recently I noticed that amazon has a much cheaper international shipping
I can get a book delivered from the amazon us site to me in taiwan for about 10$ US...
I don't know how it works to other countries though...

did you shop through the amazon US site?
the book should be available on all the other amazon sites
if its not now- it should be very soon..

just a heads up-
I don't keep any stock here in TW
I just sell the books through amazon now...
otherwise - I would have to ship them half way across the world to taiwan
and then for most orders- ship them again half way across the word..

the book should be available through all the different amazon sites
this should be local to you now

..."did you shop through the amazon US site?..
Yes, I did and it can be high mailing price reason,
when purchasing in the US overpriced mailings fees are the problem too often.
US tax wars with rest of the world takes toll
, I guess.

Can you actually learn from this book?

And if so, which qualities can you develop when you follow the method?

Thanks,

I don't think you will find what you are looking for in any book

one of my teachers gave me good advice
read books to compare and contrast with your own personal experience...
and I would add that they can also be useful for seeing a different perspective

if you already learned something similar to what the author is writing about
the book can be useful...

or to just educate yourself about different types of practice
it can be useful...


edit-- there is one small section of the book (like one paragraph)
I think most people will overlook it..
that talks about:
"This is how to generate and fill the whole body with Yuan Qi (original Qi)."

it gives instruction on Double 9 Gong training
a very simple exercise - but very good..
I learned this same thing from several teachers
one time as an individual exercise
and one time as part of a set..

this would be easy to learn from this book

this same exercise is part of the seated eight section brocade I learned
you can check out my book on seated eight section brocade
https://www.amazon.com/Baduanjin-Qi-Gon ... nklin+fick

I think this set would be easy to learn from a book..

I have not learned the exercises in the book..
but some of the stuff in the book - helped be to better understand some other practices that i have learned..

one of my kung fu brothers has learned the exercises before
but he told me the way he learned is a bit different from what is in the book

I read i briefly,
and
try 1st exercise.
Interestingly , I get strong feeling , ok, I`m sain` it- -qi movement :), at once -/heavy qigong background?/.

Would like to know:
- Do you know somebody who went thru whole cycle?
`cause it`s looks from description, like internal version of the >iron hand< , so relation from the real breakin` test can be interesting.

Explanation of sex avoiding thru 100 days seems to be logical ,
however, we had here lot of talks about it w/o conclusion. :)

What is missing , in my opinion -
density and intervals of the practice during the day .
