Lesson 4 – Getting the most out of your training

The secrets of a profitable training

If you have read all the lessons up to here you have demonstrated a real interest in 6 Dragons Kung Fu and I thank you: in this lesson, I will indicate you the way to train and become a real warrior.

Let’s start with some premises:

  • Martial arts experience is measured in real hours of practice – Not in years (it is easy to cheat in that way)
  • The time you dedicate to training is precious and should not be wasted – If you really decide to study Kung Fu, you have to do it seriously otherwise it will be completely useless (you risk becoming weaker than a non-practitioner)
  • Kung Fu is not a thing that can be learned in a limited time – It is an incessant challenge of improvement

If you agree with these statements, we can continue, otherwise, I ask you (a second time) to reflect carefully on your choice.

Note – This article has been asked by one of our Core Course practitioners on Patreon (see how to attend our home study classes here Learn Kung Fu online: a beginner-to-expert course).

How to achieve the best results that your mind / body can express

To get the best results you need to:

  • Always give the maximum – Always aim to improve the previous level of performance (punch after punch, kick after kick, read Achieve maximum performance)
  • Never be satisfied – There is always something to do better / harder / faster / etc.; the more you study, the more you understand how far perfection is and how much you can improve
  • Have specific, small and practical goals – Training is always training but if every day / week / month / year you have a target, everything will be exponentially more proficient (read also 7 principles to become a better fighter)
  • Protect yourself – On one side, avoid anything that harms you physically / emotionally, on the other, privilege what makes you a better person and makes your body healthier
  • Never lose concentration – You cannot train effectively if you are thinking of something else (problems, distractions, etc.); during training, your mind must be focused on the task it is executing and therefore empty (read Meditation method 1)
  • “Train” even when you are not training – You can always practice, everywhere (with the car keys, against a light pole, running instead of walking, controlling your breathing, etc.); the real meaning of “Kung Fu” refers to a way of doing things at the highest possible level (read The constant training in everyday life)
  • Never stop – Every day of your life will ask you (in the most disparate ways and through endless temptations / constraint) to interrupt or postpone the workout, you have to resist (read How to train with perseverance)

Technical tips on daily training

From a more technical / specific point of view, to achieve the highest level of 6 Dragons Kung Fu, you have to:

A note by Master Kongling – Even if to the observer Kung Fu may appear as an infinite repetition of the same gestures, to the wise practitioner, every single execution, every single movement is a moment of learning an opportunity to do a step forward (read How to acquire special abilities).

In the next lesson, we will see a little bit more deeply the exercises to perform in this phase of training.
