When I was younger, I saw a Shaolin fighting monk do something I never thought possible. From a complete standstill, he took one step and then lept on top of the roof of a building. The rooftop was about 10-feet-high. The monk I witnessed couldn't be more than 5'5" tall and he wasn't wearing any wires but yet it still looked like something from out of a wuxia film. When I asked him how he was able to leap like that, he simply smiled and said "Think lighter." For years I have pondered what he was saying, but I've never been able to jump 10-feet in the air up on top of a roof. The highest I've ever kicked was 7-feet in the air. How did he get his entire body to do that? Has anyone else ever experienced seeing or doing something like this? If so, could you explain how to do this in layman's terms? Thank you.
