Section XI: Rare 'Internal' & Strength Systems
All Students

The instructional staff at Green Dragon can teach almost all of the major divisions of the "internal" school of the Chinese health and fighting arts-- including-- Tai Chi Ch'uan (4 different styles); Pa Kua Chang (2 different styles); Hsing I Ch'uan (3 styles); several forms of Chi Kung & Pa Tuan Chin; the Lo Han Shou of Tamo (the original 18!); and a great many other misc. strictly internal animal programs for better health and/or added power (see again the Snake Style internal sets in Section IV #12 for example). In addition, Green Dragon is privileged to have most of the higher level "combined" internal/external health and physical power development exercise sets, including Iron Thread, Iron Vest, Iron Palm, Muscle Change Classic, and the incomparable Stone Warrior program. Of all these, the following three were selected for release to the general public BECAUSE WE HAVE FOUND THEM TO BE THE MOST BENEFICIAL, PRACTICAL, RESULT PRODUCING, ARTISTIC, AND EFFECTIVE in the 21 years that Green Dragon has conducted large group instruction.


Tai Chi Ch'uan
$79.95  
Southern Shaolin
 

One of the rarest versions in existence. Many of our instructors have attended training camps and workshops all over the US. They have seen and practiced dozens of Tai Chi variations from Yang, Chen, Wu, and assorted sub-divisions and all like this rendition better than any they have seen anywhere. Likewise, Sifu Allen has been praised by many instructors coming to train at Green Dragon for his performance on this version. It is smoother and ''softer'' than Chen or Wu style; has larger circular routes (better for ch'i generation); much more expressive handwork; and lends itself better to combat applications than most other styles with the exception of Grandmaste Tung Sheng Ch'ang's Tai Chi. A number of remarkable and dramatic health benefits have accrued to our students after consistent practice on this form including the correction of serious health and injury problems. Transfers added power to any of the hard styles along with better balance, refinement of technique, and flow of movement. Single and double pushing hands exercises included. THIS TAI CHI WORKS!!

Linear Pa Kua Chang
$79.95  
Southern Shaolin
 

While the Northern or so-called ''Dragon'' style of Pa Kua is commonly found around the US, few Kung-Fu programs offer the very hard to find linear version of this superb fighting system. In this structure, all 8 sets (some 220-240 steps) are done on-line reversing direction each half set (mirror image). The Pa Kua is characterized by constant directional changes, spinning movements on line, and, of course, all open handed work. From the standpoint of application of individual techniques to fighting, it is circular in nature and lends itself to thousands of potential combat applications, not to mention the incredible health nourishing and strength building benefits for which only Pa Kua is noted. Of 20+ strictly internal systems taught at Green Dragon, this one is the overall favorite!!

The Lo Han Shou of Tamo
$79.95  
Internal/Strength
 

When Tamo (P'u-t'i-ta-mo; Bodhidharma; Daruma; Dat-Mor; et. al.) came to the Honan Shaolin Temple in the 6th Century A.D., he reputedly introduced 3 exotic exercise programs designed to develop a state of incredible health and internal power in the Monks there. Generally known as the ''Muscle Change Classic'', the ''Marrow Washing Course'', and the ''Eighteen Movements of the Enlightened One'', these were innovated by Tamo during 9 years of meditation divided into 3 year sections, each section devoted to just one of the programs! These highly secret programs were preserved through the Southern Temple in Fukien and passed on through select Masters. Few schools can teach the true programs today, although some claim to. Green Dragon offers the first of these, the Lo Han Shou, in the original 6 sets of 3 exercises each as it was taught some 1500 years ago! The routine requires intense concentration, controlled diaphragmatic breathing, and a private area (but very little space) in which to train (there should be no distractions). Greatly improved health, stamina, and tremendous internal power on tap for fighting can be the result! Comes with 4-page handout in addition to tape.

Stone Warrior
$100  
Internal/Strength
 

Undoubtedly the PREMIER power building and muscular development exercise program to come from any area of the Chinese Fighting Arts!! Many physical strength building sets from Kung-Fu claim to be the best at developing the kind of awesome body power that many of the legendary Masters were said to have achieved. This is true of strictly ''internal'' systems, such as Chi Kung (which, if true, takes a lifetime), as well as combined ''internal/ external'' programs such as 5-Family's Iron Vest, Hung Style's Iron Thread, 5-Animal's Muscle Change, or Buddha Style's Teet Lo Han Chin Ch'uan.

Iron Vest
$75  
Internal/Strength
 

As stated on the previous page, the staff of GREEN DRAGON regard the STONE WARRIOR set as the premier power building & muscular development program to ever come from the Orient-- that is IF one had to choose between all the high level programs and could only pick one. Fortunately, we are not limited to that choice. Each of the major kung-fu exercise sets result in the ability to generate great strength in ways that the others do not, which is the reason why the old Maters trained in all of them if possible. In fact, when 3 or 4 advanced programs like Stone Warrior. Iron Vest, Muscle Change Classic, etc., are combined, the end result will actually exceed the sum of each when all are added together!! With this in mind, it can be stated with confidence that the many advantages of the true IRON VEST set rival the results from the Stone Warrior in some areas, and in others (discussed below) will promote qualities highly valued by martial artists which are totally unique. If we examine both Stone warrior and Iron vest together, you will note that the differences far outweigh the similarities, just what you would expect to find if they are to produce different types of power and health benefits.
