Education

The path of the San Feng line begins by intense physical training. During this training, you learn to unite calmness and strength to develop Qi. The application of internal martial arts takes place through a natural learning process. Getting closer to the Dao means to think mentally unbiased, like a child’s condition, to be free from prejudices and inner conflicts. The body becomes supple and elastic, the most important requirement for an impressionable mind.

In principle, anyone who has the intention to learn the San Feng line must be clear that it is not an easy task to do! Discipline and the willingness to follow strict guidelines are conditional. For some, the intellectual and physical requirements that the academy places on their students can hardly be fulfilled – and it is precisely in this respect that the goals of this unique training in Austria are addressed:

  • Willingness to redefine and rearrange his “inner” being
  • Willingness to self-reflection and self-criticism
  • Willingness to abandon egoism and egocentrism

as well as:

  • Extraordinary endurance and tenacity
  • Exceptional physical co-ordination
  • Above-average performance and concentration

All this is taught to the student in very intensive and often strenuous teaching units. We follow strictly the original ideals of the Chinese doctrine in the academy. For this reason, “westernization” has no place in the sense of relief in the classroom. For all students, the road to the Dao is not easy – but when the goal is set, the practitioner is an entirely different person who has no fear of any challenges ahead!

Form training is an important tool for getting there. By so-called routine movements (forms) one learns to identify with the self and the matter. Each form addresses a different topic and deals with various levels.

Dao De Jing: The guide of Lao Zi is the most important text that is responsible for the emergence of philosophical Daoism. These teachings describe the principles of the Dao and explain our self as well as the interactions with nature. In our academy, we teach the functional relationship with the Daoist teachings of Lao Zi, the connection with Taiji and at the highest level the Dao.
