Qing Gong

By

Definition: Qing Gong (also spelled Ching Gung) is a qigong / martial arts technique for making the body extremely light in weight, by altering the distribution and flow of qi. (Think of the fighting scenes in Jet Li’s films “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” or “Hero.”) For instance: in the latter half of this video clip we see Master Zhou Ting-Jue demonstrating his Qing Gong skill. In relation to the Hindu yoga traditions, a similar power of "lightness" (Sanskrit: laghiman)is described in Patanjali's Yoga Sutras (III:45).
