Standing Like a Tree
Standing like a tree, in Chinese Zhan Zhuang, is a unique Chi Kung system which is characterised by its great effectiveness and efficiency. Zhan Zhuang is pronounced "Jan Jong", or, in southern China, "Jam Jong".

For most people, training in Zhan Zhuang is a complete surprise in the beginning. There are no recognisable external movements, although it is a highly energetic exercise system. In contrast to many other methods, Zhan Zhuang develops our internal energy in a very efficient way, instead of consuming it.

Zhan Zhuang Chi Kung is practiced in well-balanced standing positions which increase the flow of energy and build up internal strength. The Zhan Zhuang system is based on a unique fusion of relaxation and exertion which stimulates, cleanses and massages the whole body.

Sifu Lam
For a long time, Zhan Zhuang Chi Kung has been a well kept secret and it is only since the mid 40s of this century that it has been taught and discussed publicly. In Europe, Master Lam Kam Chuen introduced it in 1987. He is also the author of the first book on Zhan Zhuang in the West.
Through the practice of Zhan Zhuang Chi Kung we're able to take advantage of our whole potential, both physically and psychologically, without becoming exhausted. This is achieved in a completely natural way without the need for fighting ourselves.
