​The Eight Pieces of Brocade or Ba Duan Jin are the first eight first exercises of the Eighteen Lohan Hands taught by Bodhidharma in Shaolin Monastery in the 6th century. It was probably during the Song Dynasty that the first eight exercises of the Eighteen Lohan Hands were practiced as Ba Duan Jin or the Eight Pieces of Brocade. Interestingly, the Eight Pieces of Brocade were popular among Taoist cultivators to the extent that it is now regarded as a Taoist art.

This Course is by invitation only and/or for students who have taken the Generating Energy Flow Course previously, either with Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit or any other Shaolin Wahnam Institute Instructor.

It would be a continuation of the Generating Energy Flow Course going deeper and wider into the practice of Shaolin Cosmos Qigong.


  • To have a better understanding of Shaolin Cosmos Qigong.

  • To learn and be able to practice competently the first eight exercises of the Eighteen Lohan Hands: Lifting the Sky, Shooting Arrows, Plucking Stars, Rotating the Cosmos, Thrust Punch, Merry Go Round, Carrying the Moon, Nourishing Kidneys.

  • To acquire the skills of attaining a one-pointed mind and of tapping cosmic energy.

  • To have an experience of energy flow.​


Course Content

  • Deep relaxation.

  • Unity of form, energy and mind.

  • Shaolin dynamic Qigong patterns (Eight Pieces of Brocade)

  • Self-manifested chi movement.

  • Standing meditation.

Expected Result: during the course itself

  • Feel relaxed and fresh.

  • Feel some qi effects, like warmth over the body, tingling sensations at the fingers or other parts of the body, and ants crawling over the skin.

  • If you have some internal injury, which you may not be aware, you may feel slight pain at the place of the injury. If you do not feel this slight pain at the end of the course, you are likely to feel it later as you continue with the practice. This is a sign that your Qigong practice is curing the injury, such as clearing internal energy blockage.

  • Feel confident that if you continue your practice at home, Qigong will overcome your degenerative or chronic illness if there is any, or to promote good health and vitality if you are not troubled by any illness.

  • Have an increase of energy level.

  • Usually you will be amazed at what a course with a master can bring to you.​


While the results can be felt during the class itself, you can only get lasting and high-level effects if you continue to practice what you learn at least once a day for 10 minutes and at least the months of the Course and beyond. The objective of the course is to provide students with fundamental skills and techniques; Subsequent courses and subsequent diligent practice is necessary.

What is taught in the Qigong course promotes spiritual, mental and physical health and wellness at its core. Sifu Ángel manages to teach and share in a "down to earth" way, adapting to the student's level, professionally and with great attention to detail, always explaining why.
