Watch Out for Lin(g) Kong Jing Scam Artists!



Rough transcript of the video (since some are having issues with the audio) -

"Alright, so, I don’t know if you guys noticed it or not but there are some bat-shit crazy people in the martial arts world.

Almost always, these crazy asses are in the internal arts crowd.

They make some wild ass claims. You know, everything from living off nothing but Qi to learning secret tai chi forms via dreams and, most notably, the ability to use Qi fight off an attacker - popularly known as the lin kong jing.

Most of you watching know I’m a LKJ practitioner. But I like to think I have a much more reasonable view of the LKJ and I think the things I’ve written on the subject bear that out.


Now, I’ve always been a little annoyed by the scam artists who claim to know/teach the LKJ - the guys with the silly demos filled with gullible white people jumpin and flippin around doing all kinds of crazy ass convulsions and what not...it makes legitimate practitioners like me look like a fool.

But, usually I just ignore it. I might write a snarky forum post here or there - but mostly I just ignore.

Now, I’m not quite sure what’s jumped up my ass but I felt the need to make a public comment about these guys.


You know, because there are a lot of scam artists out there. I’m not gonna name names. but you guys know who they are...hell, they even know who they are, ha.

Under no circumstance can ANYONE teach you to harm or repel a serious attacker using nothing but your Qi. Anyone who does tells you otherwise is a talentless hack and is after your money.

There are very few legitimate instructors of the Lin Kong Jing martial qigong system. Even fewer who are easy to find - in fact, I’m pretty sure I’m the only legitimate LKJ practitioner that maintains a public persona.

Now, it’s pretty easy to tell if you’ve found yourself a legitimate teacher/practitioner of the Lin Kong Jing. You just have to ask a few questions:

1. How do they demo their ability? If they routinely put on demos where the participants are are jumping and flipping around, people are rolling around on the floor convulsing, and/or doing no-touch knockouts - then you’ve found yourself a fraud...run.


2. Do they actively promote the need for realistic PHYSICAL fight/self defense training? If not, I’d walk away.

3. Is there a “cult-like” atmosphere that surrounds the instructor? If so, then run.

4. How about the money? Do they charge ridiculous sums of money for instruction? While I feel like it is perfectly reasonable to charge for instruction, some of the prices I’ve seen out there are absurd. If the instructor is charging tens of thousands of dollars for basic instruction then that should be seen as a red flag.


So, I think at point people need to make a decision:

A. You can waste thousands and thousands of dollars learning questionable material from a questionable individual only to end up as the butt of joke on some Youtube video with a chubby MMA fighter using you as a punching bag

OR


B. You can just go to my site, get free info, and really learn some concepts and tips that help make you a much better fighter.

The choice is yours.

Train Hard."
