Well it really depends on what you want to accomplish. At least in my experience, there is no one-size-fits-all chi kung. If you want better health for the
internal organs, the Minick book is the way to go. There are other drills that give you more energy; there is chi kung that gives you mostly mental
benefits--ie, you get very focussed, can make instant decisions, etc,--and then there is chi kung that gives you martial power. If you want to do it all,
well, you're going to have a long day...let me know what you're most interested in.
I would say my main interest would be energy or martial power, Fred.
Is this something you could do in cycles like any other training in your opinion? Like say 2 months devoted to energy and another 2 to power, etc? Or is it
more a "pick one and stick with it" kind of thing?

Upon Fred's advice I picked up Minick's book and it is excellent. It got me back into horse stances again.
Another great book in this area is called Simple Fitness Exercises. I don't have it in front of me but the author is chinese. I picked it up on Amazon
for a whopping .39 cents!!
It has a section that includes the same exercises in Minick's book, except for a couple. It also has a joint mobility section, another for flexibility
and a simplified Tai Chi routine.
I may have to look into that one also. Thanks, Dave.
