An Esoteric Shaolin Art -- SHAOLIN SOFT FIST 少林柔拳
Shaolin Soft Fist is a traditional internal strength exercise that is not common till recent years as it was considered an esoteric shaolin art. The practice of Shaolin Soft Fist helps enhance Qi (Life Energy) and blood flow throughout the Meridians of the body, unblocking any obstruction that may lead to illness or discomfort. Shaolin Soft Fist emphasizes on the concept of supple, unbroken strength, which accumulate to turn into a vigorous and powerful force. At the same time, it requires the practitioners to focus on the breathing and regulate it in coordination with soothing, graceful body movements.
There are different ways of practising Shaolin Soft Fist, and it can be easily adapted for people of all ages and fitness levels, including seasoned athletes and those who have a sedentary lifestyle.
When practiced consistently, Shaolin Soft Fist offers many health benefits. Specifically, it helps the body to:
build Qi (Life Energy) and ensure optimal flow of Qi and Blood throughout the body, which in turn improves your health in various ways, including enhancing the immune system, improving metabolism, increasing energy level, etc.
adopt proper postural alignment of the body, which in turn, ensures effective distribution of forces throughout the body and allows optimal joint movement that would reduce risk of injury.
strengthen the muscles, tendons, ligaments and other connective tissues, and promote balance and stability
enhance neuromuscular efficiency, and improve flexibility and coordination of the body
attain a peaceful state of mind, which promotes emotional wellness and improves power of concentration
Shaolin Soft Fist is also ideal for people with certain medical conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis, and chronic medical conditions:
The gentle, low-impact, controlled movements put minimal stress to the joints and help provide a safe and effective way to relieve pain and stiffness of the joints.
The weight-bearing aspect helps build and maintain bone density. In addition, the multi-planar, multi-joint movements help train up muscles that are not normally used during daily activities. With increased strength in these muscles, the risk of a fall is reduced.
The low to moderate exercise intensity allows those with chronic medical conditions, such as heart diseases and diabetes, and those who have not been active for a while to start slow and build up gradually.
