    Some people (including Mark Rasmus), say that this is only because of the traditional method of teaching, which takes far longer than necessary, due to cultural reasons. So processes that ensured that students had good moral character, or processes that restricted students from progressing in skill beyond their teachers could be responsible for slower progress. It is also difficult for us all to know what each other means by ‘qi’/’chi’, and what each of us means by ‘using it’. So Ma might have felt he discovered his qi after ten years, but someone else ‘in his body’ or whatever might have thought they got it after a year, we will never know.
