Master Chen Shiyu in Vienna

Growing Stronger Together – Master Chen Shiyu’s First Time in Vienna

Everyone came from all around the world, and it filled us with great honor to show Master Chen Shiyu the importance of this educational meeting. This gathering was something that no one can achieve on his own. What connects us is the knowledge of the San Feng lineage, and the tradition grew very fast beyond the Chinese borders with the power of everyone. Together we are the San Feng family and ready to bring harmony to ourselves through determination and hard practice. We must communicate and help each other to spread the knowledge, that was Master Chen Shiyu’s last request before he left on the last day.

About the Seminar in Vienna Now!

It is the 17th August, and we are at halftime of our five-day seminar in Vienna with master Chen Shiyu! Everything is going as planned and we are right on schedule with our content. I think the workshop inspires many people and also gives new insights and perspectives on the internal Wudang martial arts. Learning the right principles is essential, only with the knowledge of how to do it, one can attain mastery. Most of the movements are not seen outside and focus on Qi circulation, concentration, and breathing.

Important Details for our Chen Shiyu Seminar in Vienna

You are in a traditional martial arts school of San Feng family, which means there are specific rules to consider. Most of them are self-explanatory, but some rules may be new and unknown, also try to practice your Chinese, I am sure master Chen Shiyu will appreciate your dedication and effort.

What would be an appropriate gift for a Shifu?

If possible the Hongbao is preferred to contain RMB, but other currencies should be a viable option to if you are unable to obtain RMB. Depending on your identification with your lineage the Hongbao should include different amounts of money. For a complete stranger, the Hongbao is a very respectful approach, and less money is expected – depending on the occasion the envelope contains around ~50 Euros. If the person is closer to the Shifu (in a student – Master relation), the red envelope may contain between 100 and 300 Euros. These are rough estimates and are not an ultimate rule.

Preserving the Culture and Maintaining Tradition

Educating in the west about Wudang and Daoist culture is the purpose of our Wudang academy. In contrast to the chaotic and commercialized development in China, we intend to keep our content unbiased and available to everybody. While there are many self-proclaimed Daoists in Europe, our website will help you to understand and identify imposters. Wudang is not Wudang, and the understanding of Tai Ji varies significantly upon educational level, our goal is to narrow this gap down as much as possible. The teachings of the San Feng Lineage are very strict and focused on the traditions and self-development. Understanding these teachings in a practical sense is the highest priority in our educational content.

Promoting Education for Professional Groups in Health & Medicine

Wudang AcademyIn our Austrian Headquarters in Vienna (Wudang Akademie) we are supported by the Stadt Wien (Capital Vienna) to provide education programs for professionals in the medicine and healthcare department financed from the WAFF promotion fund. This highly efficient method to achieve health benefits through self-therapy based on our San Feng teachings was firstly introduced by Michael Weichhardt. It is great to see that Wudang arts can be properly adapted to our western culture and give people the health benefits and inspiration to work on themselves.
