I have a friend who liked chi-kung, tai-chi and the stuff. He spent a lot of time seeking good teachers to learn his stuff from. The time I met him a few years ago he told me that he recently learned the golden turtle from a lineage student of late master Cheng Tin Hung. He said he didn't have much time to practice due to his busy schedule, which incidentally included attending a course by another prominent teacher on I-Ching and chi-kung, and, as I could see that he treasured his lecture notes a lot, as he didn't want to share them with me. And yet, after me telling him that I considered myself quite an expert on the stuff, he asked me to give him a lesson which I was glad to. As usual, I started with basic zhan zhuang. His body didn't seem being connected to be able to generate much chi, though he told me that he learned from different prominent masters. He did sweat a little bit after the session, and he had some good feeling as I could witness. He thanked me and promised to practice daily as per my advice and would come for another lesson a few months later. He never came back. Fair to him, he did call me and apologize to me - "I'm just too busy"!
We got what we want, didn't we?
