Then the most famous Chinese medicine doctor who lived in San Guo (220-265), created "Wu Qin Xi" which is regarded as the earliest, systemic and scientific ¡®Guiding Technique¡隆脌 according to the life style and movements¡¯ characteristics of ¡隆茫bear, tiger, deer, ape, bird¡® and the theory of Chinese medicine.
QiGong is generally divided into two kinds, for example, Gong Improving health, the key function is to improve health and heal the illness; Combating Gong which is developed from ¡隆茫Gong Improving Health¡¯, the main function is to increase the hitting strength. The following are two kinds of Qigong techniques: Jing Gong (for example, standing and sitting-meditation); Dong Gong (for example, walking standing, guiding technique and using power), all the techniques are coordinated together closely. Jing Gong is to accumulate the power, and Dong Gong is to use power.
