  1. Good afternoon Great Master. My name is Glenn Farac. Im 35 years old from Sydney, Australia. I just watched your video on chi that was posted on youtube. Ive been training for the past year in Mian Quan ( Yang system). It is a very powerful system, I have built a good amount of chi thus far, through body compression etc. Im still not at the point of hitting bags yet, bar iron fist training, as im stretching out my tendons and building up power. I just had a question about cooling down your chi post training. I have found some mild anxiety in the morning occasionally and felt overheating from time to time. Does this relate back to the chinese symbol of steamed rice that it shares with chi? Would you have any pointers on breathing down and silencing your chi post training. Thankyou so much!

    1. Good Day! I have not experienced this myself, but I know it can be a problem. Consider a cool shower or cold compress to the top of the head, or back of the neck. Chi flow can increase the internal temperature and perhaps this is the cause of the anxiety you feel at night. Let me know if it works. I will ask a friend also re this issue.

  2. Hello Art, who did you study kosho ryu under? If you write back
    it may take a day or two for me to write back to you, becauce we are moving. Thanks Paul
