Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Possibly the most popular Qi Gong exercise in the world, the Eight Treasures (or Ba Duan Jin as it is known in China) has an ancient tradition which stretches back to the founder of Zen Buddhism; Bodhidharma. Seeing that his monks were tired from extensive meditation, Bodhidharma composed a set of exercises to give them energy and strengthen their bodies.

I would highly recommend this item and any other merchandise from Shi Yan Lei.

There is relatively little cueing, so you will find yourself still working on one posture while Yan Lei has already moved on to the next.

Shifu Lei is a wonderful instructor who clearly has a passion for what he practices.

I've had the opportunity to get to know Master Lei on Facebook and through his wonderful blog over the past year. I have read and studied QiGong and internal martial arts for about 5 years and I can honestly say that Master Lei teaches the core principles of Shaolin QiGong in a profound and approachable way. Namely the 8-treasures or brocade. This is a great initial step into learning the mindful movements of QiGong.

After having first purchased his book, I found this treasure! Shifu Lei is a wonderful instructor who clearly has a passion for what he practices. Coupled with his book, "Instant Health", Shifu Lei guides you step-by-step in how to perform China's most valued qi gong form, the Eight Silken Brocade, or Eight Treasures as he refers to it. I should point out, his accent is a bit heavy, but still you can follow along. As he mentions in his book, you should not skip the warm-up or stretching which precludes the exercise itself. The only draw back, you really need both the book and DVD to truly benefit.

I feel that I have benefitted so much from him (I also have Vol. 2, and Vol. 3; and personally, my favorite in the morning is vol. 3, another famous Shaolin classic, the Muscle Tendon Changing, Bone Marrow Clensing Classic). I really hope to meet him some day to personally thank him for his DVDs and book. But for now, thanks so much Shifu Lei, good health and prosperity to you. May God guide you!

Did not puchase from Amazon, (shame on me) bit purchased directly from the teacher/producer. NO tutorial provided, just a follow along cd and he moves real fast. No talk of theory or mindset while doing the movements.

Should have bought it from Amazon cause I would return it in a heartbeat. Dont buy it

This states for beginners but I will tell you that it is an intense workout and fighting style program. If you aren't already in some sort of athletic shape then you may want to start off with his Qi Gong workout and work your way up to this one. Both are great workouts by this master.

Differences?
Well since I see no one has replied, I will happily answer, Shaolin Warrior - The Way of Qi Gong - Volume 1 is the best companion for that book. The difference is one is straight Qigong which is quite gentle, and the other is a Kung Fu workout which is quite the opposite.
