Yan Shou Gong – The Art of Longevity (Sets 1-6)

The Official Online Course of Master Yap Boh Heong

Ready to begin learning?

Learn the authentic Nei Gong practices of Southern Shaolin Kungfu.


Yan Shou Gong 延壽功 is an Authentic Nei Gong practice traditionally taught to only the most senior monks in the Southern Shaolin Temple. Each of the Yan Shou Gong sets condenses the best practices of the Nei Gong arts, making them:

  • Easy to learn
  • Quick to practice
  • Produce real internal skills.

Many types of Nei/Qi Gong practices typically take years before a student feels any benefits from the training; Or even worse, the methods don’t produce any results. However, this is not the case with Yan Shou Gong, as the student will notice the benefits instantly, and in most instances, it can begin to deliver results within weeks.

Yan Shou Gong also emphasizes the development of kinetic energy and the mind; in Chinese martial arts, these terms are referred to as Jin 勁 and Yi 意. It also teaches the practitioner how to perform techniques such as Grounding, Rooting, and Centering, creating awareness and mindfulness of being in the body. This can improve a practitioner’s martial abilities, but it can also help relieve stress, anxiety, and depression.

The comprehensive instruction provided for Yan Shou Gong sets 1-6 in this course is ideal for martial artists who want to study an authentic Nei Gong system/internal art. It is also suitable for those who have previously been too busy, living a stressed-out lifestyle and now need to work on improving their health.

Inner-door Students Group

As well as the comprehensive video instruction provided within the course, Master Yap has created a private group to personally guide students studying the Yan Shou Gong (Shaolin Nei Gong) course with him. Access to the group is exclusive and only available to students who enroll in this course. Students can use the group to ask questions, discuss the video lessons and share their training experiences with the other pupils. Master Yap will be on hand to answer any questions and share new video lessons with the group.

About Yap Boh Heong

Yap Boh Heong is a 3rd generation Kungfu master with close to 50-years of experience in Southern Shaolin Kungfu, Traditional Chinese Martial Arts (TCMA), and Nei Gong. He is the son of the late Grandmaster Yap Cheng Hai, an internationally renowned master of Kungfu and feng shui.

Master Yap has acquired extensive knowledge and understanding of Shaolin Kungfu and especially the internal martial arts of Five Ancestors, WuMei and Yan Shou Gong. He has spent the past ten years researching and developing a new teaching pedagogy (TCMA) that makes sophisticated concepts easy to understand and accelerates learning. While it would traditionally take ten years for a new student to achieve proficiency in TCMA, it can now be achieved in three years using these new methods. Since he began teaching with these new methods, he has produced several highly skilled and capable students, proficient in using their internal energies, such as Jin and Yi.

Although his initial focus was on the martial aspects of TCMA, he has also turned his focus towards the health and well-being aspect after seeing how it can help others improve their lives. He now actively teaches Yan Shou Gong (YSG), an authentic Nei Gong taught previously to only the most senior monks in Southern Shaolin Temple.

Since the passing of GM Yap Cheng Hai and GM Chee Kim Thong, Master Yap Boh Heong has taken over the mantle and is actively teaching and spreading the benefits of Yan Shou Gong to the world. He recently began teaching internationally in Europe, conducting courses and workshops in the Netherlands, Germany, UK, Sweden, Denmark, Singapore, Thailand, and Indonesia.

Very Detailed

Sifu Yap is very astute at explaining the forms, strings etc. I haven’t got the whole section down yet, but I am working on it. Hope to see progress on my internals in time. I hope this will help in my relaxation in my current Wing Chun practice as well.

My focus in this course is in the area of energy and energy guidance.

I am a 67 year old retiree who has been involved with yoga (Raja , Jana) and Zen for 52 years. About 5 years ago I started to study Qigong, inspired by the books of Dr. Yang. Currently I am trying to get an overview of the techniques Yap Boh Heong uses. As far as I can see so far, they are explained well and competently. In two years we will see what it has brought.

It helps you achieve balance amongst disorder

I am only 10-15 videos in, and I am telling you, if you treat this as a higher educational degree, focus and take notes, practice daily in small intervals, and then repeat the process until you believe you have achieved a point of progress. Then your entire life changes accordingly. Thank you Master Yap Boh. Thank you, Martial Man, for supplying the content on an easy and friendly platform.

Amazing and Fascinating

This online course it the next best thing to a live workshop with Master Yap Boh Heong. The videos show the movements in high detail and with clear instructions. And you can watch each detail over and over again. Yan Shou Gong is an amazing art that not only teaches you a lot about inner work but also has many health benefits. Just commit to practicing a couple of minutes a day. It'll pay off!

Bodily energy flow

Great instructions by Master Yap. Just finished the first form. This has made me aware of my subtle bodily energies by focusing and learning these foundational movements. I am enjoying the course immensely and hope to master all the movements as delineated in the instructional videos. Very happy with the course so far! 🙏

Master Yap is not only a Neigong master but he is also a master in teaching instructions.

I first learnt from Mr.Yap back in 2019 in the"mini" course he conducted before Covid 19 lockdown forced us to stop those lessons. However this online course on YanShouGong is so well made that I feel it is as clear if not more clearer.Thank you and hope to enroll more WuZu courses in the future.

Real internal knowledge

Opposed to the "no method" approach, this course provides a thorough step by step process to develop the needed skills and feel the paths in the body. Master Yap is kind, knowledgeable from decades of experience and probably what I appreciate the most: he is very scientific and down to earth.

The forms are not the easiest, but the instructions are detailed and precise. It requires time and effort till the forms become engrained in muscle memory and you start to feel the benefits. A big thank you to Master Yap.

Practical, Easy to follow

Sifu took the time to explain the details required to achieve results. Questions are answered in a timely and helpful fashion. Results are stated clearly and achievable. Too early to tell what the long-term effects going to be, but looking forward to his courses in the future to further refine my skills.
