Not surprisingly as ‘King of Birds’ the Eagle is usually referred to as the ‘Sky Dragon’ and this Shaolin Secret Combating Train or ‘Kung’ is usually referred to as ‘Sky Dragon Claw Artwork’. Aka ‘The Power of Eagle’s Claw’ or ‘Ying Zhao LiI’ it’s a particular train of the fingers and falls, unusually, into each Yin/Rou or Delicate Inside Power Coaching and Yang/Gang Laborious Exterior Energy Coaching Classes of Shaolin Secret and Consummate Arts.
The Artwork’s Laborious Exterior dimensions are first acquired earlier than the tougher Delicate Inside facets are tried. Because the Shaolin Maxim states:’There isn’t a Laborious with out Delicate-No Delicate with out Laborious’. On this unity of opposites one dimension of efficiency helps the opposite in an integration of Yin and Yang
With the physique’s attacking energy all concentrated into the 5 fingers of the attacking hand, forceful utility of this method can severely injure opponents. Like an Eagle’s Claws, the fingers are held out with all 5 barely opened. The coed’s intense focus upon these in coaching ultimately leads inside energies to move into them and like talons causes them to penetrate opponents’ pores and skin, flesh and even inside organs as if that they had been stabbed by a pointy knife.
Opponents attacked on this style really feel shocked and numb and are thus readily rendered ‘hors de fight'(unfit to proceed). Ought to a ‘xue’ or pressure-point be grasped thus the opponent is immediately ‘overwhelmed down’.
Stage 1: Yang/Gang Exterior Energy Coaching
A narrow-mouthed short-necked vase is required weighing roughly 15 lbs. The coed stands dealing with this in both the Horse Stance (Ma Bu) or Mountain Climbing Stance (Deng Shan Bu) and with the 5 fingers of the hand to be educated protecting the opening and greedy the neck, makes an attempt to raise this to roughly chest top. The brief, easy neck renders this troublesome at first and three months’ observe could also be required earlier than this may be carried out with ease.
When this may be carried out readily half-a-litre of water is added to the jar and each time such a weight-increase is mastered an extra half-litre is added till the jar is full. Some favor sand to water at this stage. Lastly, iron slabs are positioned contained in the jar one-by-one and the train proceeds as earlier than till the jar’s complete iron content material may be lifted readily. At this level the Yang/Gang Exterior Energy Coaching necessities of Eagle Claw Energy Arts are full.
Stage 2: Yin?Rou Inside Power Coaching
‘Coaching utilizing the Components’ is that this Stage’s identify. Within the early morning, outdoor, dealing with the rising solar, with the 5 fingers prolonged in Eagle Claw style the coed makes use of as a lot will-power as doable to pay attention upon these and performs repeated pulling and greedy actions within the empty air. Because the Solar is distant and unreachable Exterior Yang/Gang Power flows are restrained and their Inside Yin/Rou counterparts are promoted because the Qi follows the thoughts and flows to the fingers as a consequence. This provides deadly penetrating Yin qualities to the Yang energy acquired in Stage 1. Laborious and Delicate collectively produce synergies including great potencies to this method.
As soon as Ying Zhao Li is acquired after extended observe, level the fingers at a flying chook and it will drop from the sky like a stone (precisely as if it had noticed a hovering Eagle) and essentially the most restive horse will probably be immediately quieted equally. A phrase of warning, nonetheless, is required as, if coaching is deserted half-way, the hand might retain a ir-remedial clawed look, regardless of medical assist.
