Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit - 2

Grandmaster Wong, born in 1944, started his life-long training of the Shaolin arts in 1954 when he learned Shaolin Kungfu and lion dance from the famous Shaolin master, Grandmaster Lai Chin Wah, who was popularly known as Uncle Righteousness. Grandmaster Wong became his best disciple and helped Uncle Righteousness to teach kungfu. 

To further his kungfu training, Grandmaster Wong later learned from Grandmaster Ho Fatt Nam, the third generation successor directly descended from the southern Shaolin Monastery when it was burned by the Manchurian army in China. 

Grandmaster Wong also learned Wuzu Kungfu from Grandmaster Chee Kim Thong, regarded as the Living Treasure of the People’s Republic of China, and from Grandmaster Choe Hoong Choy, the Patriarch of Choe Family Wing Choon Kungfu.

Grandmaster Wong has taught kungfu and chi kung for more than thirty five years to more than 80,000 students in more than 35 countries. 

Regretting that many masters were withholding secrets of kungfu and chi kung with the result that these arts have lose their essence, in 1982 he founded the Shaolin Wahnam Institute of kungfu and chi kung.

He named the school after his two teachers who had influenced him most, Grandmaster Lai Chin Wah and Grandmaster Ho Fatt Nam, with the aim of transmitting genuine Shaolin Kungfu, Shaolin Chi Kung and Shaolin philosophy. 

Having won championships himself, Grandmaster Wong has trained many champions in kungfu (demonstrations as well as all styles sparring) and lion dance competitions. But he has always insisted that while Shaolin Kungfu is an exceedingly effective martial art, its greatness lies in enriching our daily life and in spiritual development.

Since 1987 Grandmaster Wong has spent more time teaching chi kung than kungfu. This is because while kungfu serves as an interesting hobby, chi kung serves an urgent public need, particularly in helping people to overcome degenerative and psychiatric illness. 

In 1988 he caused a huge public controversy when he made an incredible announcement: that it is possible to transmit chi (energy) over great distance to cure people! In a public experiment conducted by an independent national newspaper in early 1989, he proved that distant chi transmission is possible. Later that year, he publicly demonstrated sending chi up to the sky to disperse clouds!

Grandmaster Wong is one of the few masters who have generously introduced the once secretive Shaolin Chi Kung to the public, and has helped literally thousands of people with their so-called «incurable» diseases like hypertension, asthma, rheumatism, arthritis, diabetics, migraine, gastritis, gall stones, kidney failure, depression, anxiety.

Now he has devoted more time on writing and teaching overseas, having successfully taught in more than 35 countries in all the 6 continents. He stresses the Shaolin philosophy of sharing goodness with all humanity, and is now dedicated to spreading the wonders and benefits of the Shaolin arts to more people irrespective of race, culture and religion.

Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit Books

Many of these books are best sellers around the world and have been translated into multiple languages.

Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit books are characterized by their easy-to-read, simple, direct and entertaining language.

Without a doubt, these books provide an excellent guide to understanding what can be achieved through the practice of authentic Chi Kung, Shaolin Kung Fu, Tai Chi Chuan and Zen.

Many of Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit Books reveal many secrets about Qi Gong, Shaolin Kung Fu, Martial Arts and Spiritual Cultivation.  If you are fortunate enough to read his books you will be greatly rewarded as they will offer you a route-map of what genuine Shaolin Arts can bring to practicioners.


The Art of Chi Kung

No previous knowledge of qigong is required to understand this book; all concepts and expressions are explained in a style and vocabulary easily understandable to the Western reader. 

You will be introduced step by step to all the important aspects of the body, mind and spirit work of qigong until you reach, towards the end of the book, quite advanced concepts.

In a work in which the author does not overlook the cultural and ideological differences between the environment in which qigong originated and the reader’s environment, Wong Kiew Kit gives us descriptions that may seem incredible to the eyes of any Westerner; however, most of the examples mentioned in this book have been verified by the experience of the Grandmaster’s students, as well as by his own. 

But no element of this work should be accepted based solely on the faith or reputation of the authorities cited; rather, the principles and practices suggested should be approached with an open mind, and their benefits should be evaluated after they have been put into practice for an adequate amount of time.

At the more advanced levels, qigong takes on spiritual aspects, transcending the physical, but there are many people who practice it and benefit greatly only from its physical aspect, neglecting some or all of its spiritual nuances.


Chi Kung for Health and Vitality

If you want to enjoy the enormous capacity of a clear mind, a healthy and vital organism, Qigong for health and vitality will open the doors to a new world full of energy and well-being.

The practice of Qigong can bring you, among others, the following benefits:

– Manage stress

– Cultivate health

– Enhanced sexual vitality

– Enhance the creativity of the mind

There is a growing recognition of the benefits that the Chinese art of Qigong (or Chikung) brings to the improvement of physical and mental capacity. Its continued practice, in addition to promoting vitality in the sporting and sexual spheres, contributes effectively to the cultivation of health.

Over the centuries, Chinese culture deepened this knowledge and developed special techniques aimed at acquiring chi, or vital energy. Some of these techniques were used in the martial arts; others served to preserve health, cure illness and provide vigor in old age. But all of them were kept secret.

This clear and profound book teaches us the Qigong techniques for energy cultivation, offering a program of simple exercises designed to enhance physical, mental and spiritual well-being, equally suitable for both novice and expert practitioners.


The Complete Book of Chinese Medicine

For traditional Chinese medicine, the human body is the mirror of the universe, insofar as its constituent elements are the same as those found in nature and are governed by the same laws.

It is often mistakenly believed that Chinese medicine is nothing more than acupuncture and herbal medicine.

In reality, Chinese medicine is a very broad field that encompasses many other aspects, such as external medicine, therapeutic massage, traumatology, qigong, and mental and spiritual health, which are explained in this book in a way that is as accessible as it is accurate and profound.

This lavishly illustrated work enables the Western reader to become familiar with this ancient healing tradition and is also of great use to health professionals.
