|Roger L. - Why Oom Yung Doe:|
".. Training has gotten rid of the carpel
tunnel pain I had experienced in my wrists and elbows
from the constant daily typing I do."
with a friend who is Chinese and a successful
businessman in the food industry. Visiting his
restaurant we spoke of martial arts over lunch. I'd been
studying Oom Yung Doe for less than 3 months at the time
we spoke. He had been studying with different styles and
techniques of martial arts for a couple of years, a
mixture of Kung Fu and forms of Karate. I thought to
myself "some of the training methods he was speaking
about make no sense to me." I told him that I had looked
around at various styles when I discovered Oom Yung Doe.
After explaining my understanding of the 8 styles taught
in Oom Yung Doe, he was intrigued. Realizing that I was
at ground level in my training, I demonstrated 5 forms I
had learned. To say the least, he was shocked and from
his mouth came the words "I'm jealous. How could you
learn all that in several months…those are high level
forms of Kung Fu - I don't even know those."
have started training in Oom Yung Doe, some of the
immediate benefits have been increased flexibility, loss
of weight (over 20 lbs), and stress reduction. My job is
very stressful and after leaving my lessons the stress
is completely gone. In addition, the training has gotten
rid of the carpel tunnel pain I had experienced in my
wrist and elbows from the constant daily typing I do.
For the past 6 months the pain in my wrist has prevented
me from doing many things I wanted to do.
