In this 83-minute course, Sifu Phillip Starr provides a complete and progressive training regimen for increasing and refining ‘chansijin’, also known as silk-reeling power or coiling power, the true power of the internal martial arts.
While much of the existing material on jin relies on cryptic and mystical descriptions of internal power, Sifu Starr takes a direct, no-nonsense approach that addresses commonly held myths and identifies the real body mechanics behind this unusual power. Useful for novices and advanced practitioners alike.
The course also includes an exclusive hour-long interview with Sifu Starr discussing his training history and lineage with Sifu Chris Lomas. The course accompanies Sifu Starr’s book Developing Jin.
