The application of halacha to Qigong distinguishes Jerusalem Health from nearly every other Qigong School in the world. In short Jewish Medical Ethics aims to screen out unsavory elements of the practice and culture, of which there are potentially limitless. I don’t mean to sound snobby but even a surface look at the Qigong world will reveal a circus parts of which are better to miss. Just as the modern Circus is letting go of animal captivity and torture, so its time for Qigong to let go of much baggage. The halacha is one way and I personally have found the best way to do this.
for a kosher approach to Martial Arts in Jerusalem, Jerusalem Health recommends The Abir Warrior Academy in Jerusalem.
