1. What is Nèi-gōng?
“Nèi means “internal” and gōng means “gōngfū.” Gōngfū (Kung Fu) is any accomplishment or task that takes time and energy to complete. All Chinese martial arts styles include both wàigōng (i.e. external gōngfū) and nèigōng.
Wàigōng consists of training that is visible externally, such as forms, techniques, speed, and power. Nèigōng focuses on building up qì in the lower dāntián, the body’s energy center, and then using the mind to manipulate, lead, and use qì for efficient, effective physical manifestations.
Wàigōng can be thought of as a machine’s performance while nèigōng can be thought of as this machine’s energy supply. Nèigōng and wàigōng must mutually support each other in order for the machine to function at its highest efficiency and output.”
