Thoughts on Meditation



..."When you realize that you have come to your wit’s end, you can begin meditation. Or meditation happens, and that happening is simply the watching of what is, of all the information conveyed to you by your exterior and interior senses, and even the thoughts that keep chattering on about it all. You don’t try to stop those thoughts, you just let them run as if they were birds twittering outside, and they will eventually become tired and stop. But don’t worry about whether they do or don’t. Just simply watch whatever it is that you are feeling, thinking, or experiencing – that’s it. Just watch it, and don’t go out of your way to put any names on it. This is really what meditation is." ~Alan Watts...

Coach Jim Roselando and Sifu Randy Williams - early 1990's Yip Man Wing Chun footage!

Hello, 
     
     In the early 1990's our coach spent five years studying Yip Man Wing Chun under Sifu Randy Williams.  Coach JR was in his early twenties and always says he had a lot of fun training with Sifu Randy Williams.  During this time period Coach JR was fortunate to help Sifu Randy Williams with his video series not only for Inside Kung Fu (Los Angeles, USA) but he travelled to Madrid, Spain to assist in the videos that were sold in Citeron Negro Magazine.  It has been many years since then, but recently more footage from their videos has shown up on Youtube.  Below are a few clips of Sifu Randy Williams and Coach JR.  Enjoy! 

(Note: Coach JR was 20 years old in these clips)

Words of Wisdom passed on from Coach Jim Roselando

One day I randomly stopped by coach Jim’s house to see if he wants to practice wing chun. His friend was visiting, and he lead a qigong session instead. That was the first time I’ve experienced energy. I went home and started my qigong journey. Dec 14, 2008… my second birthday.
Being a beginner at the time, I made many mistakes testing out different techniques, which ended up setting me back and causing injury. At one point, I practiced techniques to open my arm meridians, and I couldn’t shake hands with sick people without their sickness coming into me. My hand turned purple and my teacher spent the whole night fixing me.
Coach Jim sent me this from the Qigong bible to keep me on track:
Three extremely important key points for Qigong. one must not violate these, or else it is a disaster.
1. When the mind is quiet, the Spirit will be settled. When the Spirit is settled, the Qi will grow itself to full. When the Qi is full, the Blood circulation will be strong, thus both Qi and Blood will flow smoothly. This is how to grow the Qi.
2. Blood and Qi have their own natural path and flow smoothly. One must never interrupt the natural flow of Blood and Qi. What one can do is to help remove the obstructions and let the Blood and Qi naturally develop and expand. This is how to lead the free flow of Qi and Blood.
3. Goal and cultivation process of Qigong is to relax the physical body, quiet the mind, and let every dynamic flow be natural. Only pay attention to these three things.
Note: Any violation of the above three key points will certainly result in premature aging, weakness, disease, or internal injury.
Basic Qigong tips:
Practice everyday.
Stick to one style.
Don’t create or modify a technique.
Don’t learn qigong from a book or dvd.
