More Bad Science

More bad science by Bill Glasheen I hate it when “junk science” makes it into the mainstream media – particularly when it is politically motivated.

Whoon Hei (chi)

I have long stayed away from any comments on this subject for fear of contradictions to another’s belief or understanding of such.  The practice of hei ghoun has always been a portion of every kung fu style I’ve learned beginning in 1960 and also in the twenty or so years I’ve been going to China …
