Qinggong: Gravity Defying Kung Fu

Click picture to view video.

Qinggong (Gravity Defying Skill) is a skill in Kung Fu which is said to allow a master to jump up to and down from high walls. There is debate whether this is a fictional ability created by authors of martial arts books. From what we understand it is or was a real deal which has been lost. Contemporary displays of Qinggong, as is shown in this clip, is impressive but it might not be the Qinggong of yore. The Qinggong shown in this clip has a Western counterpart - Parkour.
