6.   Are the different styles or strokes of various forms of qigong or martial arts important?  Does the fluidity or gracefulness of the outward bodily movement indicate the depth or level that has one attained?

It doesn’t really matter.  Anyone who wants to reap the full benefits of any martial arts or qigong must be able to understand, internalise the steps found in each form through practice, and apply them appropriately. Only then, will it become a valuable set of martial arts, self-defence skill.  Otherwise, it will be just a performing art or another physical exercise that keeps one healthy.

7.   Is there a need to use one’s voice , for example , shout out `HA’ or `HO’ during qigong practice? 

Innate Wisdom Qigong stresses on allowing the natural circulation of qi in one’s body to guide and direct the practice. Hence, there is no need to make any conscious effort to use one’s voice or shout `HA’ or `HO’, although some practitioners may naturally do so during the practice as directed by the flow of their qi.  There is also no necessity to turn round and round in a circle to generate or build up more qi unless otherwise directed by the natural flow of one’s qi.

8.   Why do I see other martial art forms such as kung-fu, tai-chi or even yoga manifesting during one’s practice of Innate Wisdom Qigong?

As per one’s body requirements, the qi flowing naturally within will result in movements that may reflect or coincide with movements found in any martial arts or qigong forms.

9.    Is there a difference between Innate Wisdom Qigong and other forms of ‘free-form or free-style’ qigong?

As a practitioner practises Innate Wisdom Qigong, with time, the movements will evolve and change through various stages of their process of healing and awakening. The pattern of movement during each phase of practice is a reflection of one’s consciousness and needs during that phase of practice. This correspond to the individual’s mental, physical, emotional and spiritual state at that phase of practice.

With gradual progressive healing and transformation of one’s mind, body and spirit during practice, with the correspondent bodily movements as directed by one’s innate qi flow, a transition to the next phase of movements will occur with time, indicating a deepening of one’s practice.

10.   Is there a difference between Innate Wisdom Qigong and other forms of qigong which appear similar in terms of external bodily movements?

For Innate Wisdom Qigong, the natural qi circulation within one’s body will direct all outward bodily movements resulting in moves that are ever-changing and unique only to that individual.

In contrast, with other forms of qigong, there maybe a fixed or structured set of exercises, or a particular form of movement to direct the flow of one’s qi within one’s body, with intention and will.

Qi – exists in a state of Non- Self , Non-attachment, Beingness, Is-ness.

Form – exists in a state of self perception, self attachment
