Fu Ru Heng Nu, Qi Ru Fa Ji----Summary of Shao Lin Kung-fu Jin Fa
    It reads in Quan scripture that without smelting and refinement, iron can't become steel and, without practice, force would never be strength. Jin Fa (the method of practicing strength) in traditional Kung-fu is divided into external strength, internal strength and converted strength. The different kinds of strength exerted respectively depend on the actual level of the Kung-fu practitioner while a great master normally adopts internal strength or converted strength, in most cases, to override his opponent. There is an integral system guiding the practices and applications of Jin Fa in traditional Shao Lin Kung-fu with the balance of Yin and Yang as well as the transition between hardness and softness as its essence.
