Nourishing Life 養生法

Yang Sheng Fa 養生法 translates to "Life Nourishing Methods" and is a part of training in Chinese Qigong, Medicine and Martial Culture that is many times over looked. The quest for power, fighting ability, magical abilities or even just pure knowledge itself cannot be continued without good health. Yang Sheng training encompasses many things from cooking, nutrition, massage, meditation and recovery from injury as the article by my student Sifu Sami discusses (originally published in Deep Water Martial Arts Magazine).
Yang Sheng Fa is a part of my curriculum especially during my full time intensive course each summer. Training as much as we do (35+ hours a week) requires some help to refuel, heal and handle the intensity.
Enjoy. Sami is a knowledgable man.
