"I just had the pleasure of watching Julian Dale's new DVD on Liu He Ba Fa basic training exercises.

The methods shown are very sound and useful exercises for all martial artists, each one developing a different quality or line of force. Although I know little about LHBF as a style a lot of this was very familiar from Xingyiquan and Bagauquan neigong training. Julian's structure is very good, it is clear how many years of work he has put into the foundation exercises and stance work.

The section where Julian discusses his background and the material presented is done very well and he is obviously someone with a sincere and deep love for the Chinese martial arts.

Finally what was also very impressive was the excellent production quality of the film - looks like no expense was spared in lighting, sound, camerwork and editing.

In summary - a very good set for anyone wanting to develop whole body connected power, and a very well made film."

"Today I watched Julian Dale's DVD on eight essential qigong exercises.

When I heard for the first time that an externalist had released an instructional video on an internal system, I was in doubt, and was not sold on it.

When the disc arrive it took me some time to get to it, but finally I decided to give it a try.
The introduction was a nice surprise. Brief, informative, honest. Julian has not only devoted his life to external martial arts, he has also studied the internal ones. He admitted the set is his own take on the basic exercises from Water Boxing, based on his own understanding and experience. Fair enough.

I was curious not only about the exercises, but about his skill that he demonstrates through them. And here was another surprise. Julian shows a very good body skills. He is relaxed, but very well coordinated. His body works as a whole, all the joints turn and twist, with hips and waist connecting the lower and upper parts of the body, and working as one with all its parts. One can clearly see how Julian follows the gravity, how his weight is used to power the movements. His power comes from the soles of the feet, this is where power originates.

Julian give clear explanations on how to perform the movements of each of the eight exercises, but the way he shows them as already very clear. One should not only follow the instructions. There is an experience of many years of hard and correct practice in what may seem as simple explanation. It all depends on how advanced you are - either a beginner or a long-time practitioner will find there something valuable. Not only an externalist, but also an internalist. Julian skill is not a mixture of internal or external methods, not a merge, a combination. He has achieved skill beyond the internal-external division.
