"In the summer of 1997 I was fortunate enough to be able to travel with Sifu and some other students to the United World Kung Fu/Wushu Championship in Orlando, USA. It was during the lead up to this that I was introduced to Sifu's outstanding ability of Ling Kong Jing or projection of void power, which enables Sifu to neutralise a physical attack without any physical contact whatsoever.
The best way to describe 'void power' is to feel the intent of your initial attack being dissolved into absolutely nothing as you approach Sifu until you feel completely powerless and certainly not able to carry out any further attacks. Sifu's energy not only dissolves away any bad intention but leaves you with a feeling of well-being and calmness. It feels like the energy envelopes around you and is very clean and consistent which gives an impression that the source of this energy has no limit, and this source is Sifu.
When we were in Orlando, we met Herb Borkland, a journalist from the Inside Kung Fu Magazine who wanted to see Sifu in action. Herb was very sceptical at first and so Sifu offered him an impromptu demonstration. Sifu asked Herb who stood towering over Sifu to attack him with as much aggression as he is capable of. As we all watched, every single one of Herb's attacks was reduced to absolutely nothing. At times, Herb appeared so powerless he ended up almost kneeling. I noted with amazement that the aggression in Herb's face simply evaporated as Sifu neutralised his attack with the use of void power. At a certain point in the demonstration, Sifu activated some sort of energy connection in Herb's body from a distance which caused Herb to start laughing involuntarily to such an extent that Herb's body was uncontrollably bent over; quite a turn around from the initial aggression and intent of his attack.
Sifu explained that it is possible to influence the emotional and mental intent of attackers so that they could not cause harm to others or to themselves. What I witnessed was pure compassion in action, Sifu shows true loving kindness for all people he comes into contact with including those that may have the intention to harm. It is a most remarkable demonstration of Sifu's extraordinary skill."
