What does it mean to be a 6 Dragons Kung Fu’s practitioner?

What is necessary to be able to call ourselves 6DKF’s practitioners? Let’s see it.

From the school point of view, the practitioner is the one who:

  • Study the 6DKF’s theory and apply it in training (read A full and free online guide to 6 Dragons Kung Fu, later we will see more about the exams to graduate)
  • Practice the basic fundamental exercises (except for sparring, read /// Subscribe (it's free!) or Login to see this content ///)
  • Has passed the body awakening phase (before which we are only aspiring practitioners, read /// Subscribe (it's free!) or Login to see this content ///)
  • Regularly practice meditation (at least 1-2 times per week, better if 14 times per week, read Meditation method 1)

From the ethical point of view, the practitioner is the one who:

Unlike the amateur, a real 6DKF’s practitioner (read The difference between 6DKF and other martial arts):

  • Puts Kung Fu in a high position within its priority scale (6DKF is, first of all, a style of life, read /// Subscribe (it's free!) or Login to see this content ///)
  • Train at least 4-5 times  per week (better if 6 times per week, read Tips on how to stretch our training times)
  • Never stop training regimen for more than a consecutive week per year (except in cases where it is not possible to train even a single limb of the body)
  • Is focused each minute of his workout on the idea of acting better than the previous one (no matter what, no distractions, read A relentless pursuit)
  • Is focused on 3 words, discipline, concentration and preparation (and in their sum up, determination)

These are the basics.

What is not mandatory to be a practitioner

A 6 Dragons Kung Fu practitioner is (as long as he understands the consequences, read Why martial arts do not work: 5 reasons) advised but not obliged to:

  • Practice sparring
  • Practice advanced conditioning
  • Learn to fight with proper / improper weapons
  • Learn the deceptive techniques
  • Learn advanced fighting techniques
  • Learn advanced fighting tactics
  • Learn self-defense strategy
  • Learn advanced skills (acrobatics, etc.)
  • Learn forms and sequences

A note by Master Kongling – As we said a lot of times, 6DKF can be used even only for: fitness, wellness, health and/or self-improvement but if we want to learn it in a deep manner we have to follow the entire teachings (read 6DKF: what does it teach?).
