These vital points are the ones similar to batteries, they cumulate energies fundamentally benefiting health, by providing greater resistance and power, to all techniques of the different styles of martial arts, or providing extra energy for the practice of other sports which makes the style the ideal complement for the external strength styles such as karate, Kempo, Wai Kung Pai, or Tae Kwon Do. The master Qian Lan Gen dominates all the Shaolin Kung Fu weapons, some of them never seen in our environment. He is also an expert in acupuncture.
