Dat Mo Yit Gung Ging (Dat Mo’s Muscle Changing Classic) Workshop

Presented By Master Frank Yee on November 22, 2020

Yit Gung Ging (Yi Jin Jing in Mandarin) arose from the Sound Crane Fist style of the Bak Hohk (Fukien White Crane) Style. The Sound Crane Fist was founded by the late Ching Dynasty Bak Hohk Kuen Master, Lum Sai Hom and his student Jeh Sung Cheung. It was created from the foundation of the White Crane style. This style uses the Intention for the Spirit and utilizes the sound to force the Qi and the Qi to force the Ging. (similar the Iron Wire Fist). The sound uses the “Ha” Qi methods; nose inhale and the mouth exhales (Stomach Breathing method). The particularity of the Yit Gung Ging (Yi Jin Jing) is the intention uses sound to force the Qi and Qi to Force the Ging… The Ging comes from the waist to create a very strong Springing type Ging. This is the Sound Crane Fist’s specialty, which is called Jung Ging (Original Ging). There is an old saying, “The Crane methods all rely on the swinging and the Jung Ging. Swing means being soft to absorb the ging. Jung is hard to spring the Ging. They both require that the hard and soft must correspond when exploding the power, like the bow sending out the arrow. 

When you release the hand, it is like cotton, when you train the Yit Gung Ging (Yi Jin Jing) your head has to face to the east to absorb the beneficial essence of the sun (Red Infrared Radiation) and concentrate and clear the mind, adjust your breathing and train the High, Middle and Low  Dantiens. The three Dantiens train specific skills: Upper trains Spirit (Sun) Middle trains the Breath (Hei) and the Lower trains the Sperm and Energy (Jing).

Bending and rotating the wrists in and out, bending the body down and moving it up, strengthen the Kidneys and sends the Qi to the Dantien. This is the preparational movement for creating the Internal Ging.

The Gold turtle uses the basic foundation training method of utilizing the intention to cause the Excitation or application of energy to the system’s circulation in the Meridians (Jing Luo) and channels as well harmonizing the Qi and Blood circulation in those channels.
