The goal of Ki Gong is to build and maintain a fit body, mind and spirit in order to live a more healthy and happy life. By practicing Ki Gong, a student learns how to control his or her mind, breathing and posture. By purifying one's mind, a student can eliminate mental stress, anxiety and depression. Once these factors are controlled, the positive effects are exhibited in the circulatory system. Dedicated Ki Gong practice aids in prevention of illnesses, increased longevity, weight reduction and overall total health and happiness. Grand Master Shin has been quite successful in teaching many Ki Gong students over the years to dramatically reduce symptoms of diseases and ailments, and in some cases, eliminate symptoms they have dealt with for long periods of their lives.
