Chi Concentrations

Each kung fu style is based on one or two methods of using Chi, called chi concentrations. The full list of these is:

  • Spirit
    • Building Chi
    • Chi Control
    • Focusing Chi
  • Body
    • Power
    • Speed
    • Toughness
  • Mind
    • Awareness
    • Meditation
    • Mysticism

The Chi Concentration exploits available for practitioners of styles utilizing these follow:

In order to define kung fu styles, the possible chi concentration powers need to be defined. The powers below describe the teachings that individual styles provide. In future articles defining styles these powers will be used. A description of how kung fu styles are built is here.
