Hi Family, we have this week’s update ready for you. Before we get into them, I am going to talk to you about something that seems to come up regularly here at Enter Shaolin. The sad part is, this type of thing has popped up in almost everything I have done in my life.
That is being around people that are dream killers. You have to be careful of these types of people because they will try to take out your dreams because they gave up on their own. Sometimes these dream killers are obvious and some more subtle.
By now you most likely realize that Chi or Qi aka energy is a real thing. If you don’t yet that’s okay because each person comes to their own realization.
Energy is all around us it’s in everything we do. It’s in everything we see. Our energy seeks out other energy to connect with. While this can be an amazing experience it can also be hazardous. By hazardous I mean that while a person’s energy can help drive you forward to your goals, bad energy can pull you away from your goals.
A good example of this is take something like Enter Shaolin. In the big scheme of things it doesn’t cost that much to be a member. When a person joins us they joined because they are looking for something. That something could be anything, but whatever it is your ‘why’ for joining has to be important to you.
This goes for anything you set out to achieve.
I believe because you joined Enter Shaolin your reason for doing it has to be pretty important to you or you wouldn’t still be here. Which brings me to why some people quit.
On the surface level people either think they can’t afford it anymore or that they don’t have enough time to train like, life is too crazy, etc.

I personally think…
That the only reason to quit training with us is if you don’t like what we do here at Enter Shaolin. In that case I get it, go find something you love to do and do it.
But if you like what we do, then no excuse is really acceptable for giving up. Because this journey is for and about you. Being a member of Enter Shaolin’s family means you love yourself. Because training is ultimately something you do for you to become a better person.
I’ve found that people who quit generally do because they are surrounding themselves with people who drain their energy. You need to be around positive uplifting people. You really should have an accountability partner, the good news about that is you can join our Slack community and meet more like minded individuals that will gladly back you up.
Finally, it’s imperative you do something daily to move you closer to your ‘why’ to meet your goals and improve yourself.
What are type of Kung Fu training are you doing daily? (Share in the comments at the end of this post.)
Speaking of training, we got a new Patreon video waiting for you. This week we shared a lesson Sije Jamie got to have with Sifu Phu. She doesn’t get to train with him often, so this is some serious insider stuff here. 😉

My daily Kung Fu training mainly revolves around qigong. It is what I have formed a habit with doing before bed and in the morning before breakfast. Starting Tai chi also. Just seem to be far behind the curve on most things when it comes to NDN. But as an Abbott member I will get there someday soon!!!
Here are my current goals:
1) to learn the first 1/3 of Tai chi within the next month.
2) continue daily Qigong
3) within the next year I want to start the NDN 101 course.
Sifu Phu Ngo says
Awesome, let us know if you have any questions. We’re here to help.
I do Qigong and Tai Chi daily.
Sifu Larry Rivera says
That’s awesome Vanessa
Jens B says
I train Wing Chun in a club. And there is another training partner. We meet once a week to train Eskrima. Just recently we try to learn some sword technics, because he learns aspects of a Japanese fighting system and I have some experience in European fighting styles with swords. Now I have started with the Ngo Dac Na lessons and my training partner is wondering about my higher number of hits and my better stance in such a short time. 😉 Thank you for the lessons. I wont’t leave.
Sifu Larry Rivera says
That’s awesome! Glad you are enjoying the lessons.
