The days spent with Grandmaster Ren were unforgettable. The first kung fu I learned from him was Energy Bagua.

One day I asked Grandmaster Ren, “Master, I know all the movements of Energy Bagua now, but how can I use them to fight better? Also, when can I crush a stone like you did?”

He replied, “Energy Bagua is not for fighting.”

“I don’t want to get beaten up anymore! Master, please teach me how to use it to fight!”

Grandmaster Ren said seriously, “What I’ve taught you is basic training, not martial arts movements.”

“A basic training for what?” I asked anxiously.

“You’ll know later,” he said. “Remember, you don’t have any enemies.”
