Qi Gong and Taijiquan is full of numbers. 8 brocades, 108 form movements, 3 treasures etc. Thus I want to show you the numbers from China!
Let’s start with the Chinese number 1-10; 100 and 1000. And I added some examples from my Taijiquan & Qi Gong Dictionary*:
Chinese numbers 1-10; 100; 1000
1 一 yī Yi Lu (First Form in Chen style Taijiquan)
2 二 èr Er Lu (Second Form in Chen style Taijiquan)
3 三 sān San Bao (Three Treasures)
4 四 sì
5 五 wǔ Wu Qin Xi (Five Animals Qi Gong)
6 六 liù Liu Zi Jue (Six Healing Sounds)
7 七 qī
8 八 bā Qi Jing Ba Mai (Eight Extraordinary Meridians)
9 九 jiǔ
10 十 shí
100 百 bǎi Bai Hui (“Hundred Convergences”, acupoint Du Mai 20)
1000 千 qiān Qian Jin Zhui (Thousand Pound Sinking)
I know that the strangest thing about the Chineses language is the pronunciation. If you want to learn counting in Mandarin Chinese, have a look at this video and repeat what he says:
Or you can also go to this online dictionary and listen to 100 or 1000 or any other Chinese word!
Thanks for sharing this video. It’s very useful being able to hear the pronunciation and see the numbers in English characters.
