The theory consists of the building blocks of yin and yang. We need both to take our self into our own hands. Those who have never been busy realizing their dreams can hardly remain calm. Taiji is a practice-oriented exercise to clarify the natural process. We are no exception here – none of us.
We, the Wudang Academy, welcome everyone in the New Year 2019 and would like to share some of the things that are happening here this year.
In contrast to the heavenly beings of Taoism, man, who lives according to his nature, is forever bound to the sequences, the ups, and downs, of this nature. This path is characterized by the tolerance of the inevitable, it is the path that shows us our purpose: to be in harmony with ourselves.
Since Wudang is a way to live a quality life, combat is a part of its doctrines, yet one must have the basic abilities to be functional in combat. This is why the basic training is much more important especially in the beginning of the Wudang training.
Postures like Xie Bu and Ma Bu are very important to keep Fu Hu Quan controlled and quiet. Beginners who rush their training cannot keep the same height and wiggle their knees. Anyone who can finally relax in the postures also manages to incorporate the explosive power of relaxation in the attacks.
Whoever puts the effort out of his situation and gives up his comfort, focuses his perception step by step back to the source of all conflicts. Stress, relaxation, and actions that are directly related to our environment occur unconsciously and uncontrollably. Recognizing the origin through experience gives us the true solution of the great whole – the path of harmony.
Wudang is world famous for his masterly sword art. The calm and serenity needed to control energy and power is an important hallmark of Wudang Sword Art and a result of years of intense training.
Wudang Baguazhang consists of eight sequences of movements that are circular in both directions. The translation of the individual forms can be found here!

In this post, I want to tell you about my story of how I achieved a perfect split in just seven days. During my education in Wudang, I was required to do the split or my journey would have come to an abrupt end. Achieving a split is absolutely necessary for lineage holders in San Feng Pai. I was required to accomplish the split in three months! This post is telling a real story of how I achieved my split in seven days!
In reality, there are a few drops in the rain which can be perceived. They are enough to ground our soul. When interacting with the endlessly hard and the infinitely soft, we are greatly inspired by the elements. When you are ready to give, you must be prepared to observe under the veil which hides the true intentions of the people. The hidden nature within which clouds the way of the Dao, light the path and be inspired to change.
Laozi describes two ways of the Dao, the way of humans and the way of nature. When both worlds harmonize we call it Ziran自然 (zìrán) because, in the end, and beginning, it is the same source. The way of the Dao for humans is called Wuwei 無爲 (wúwéi). Everything against our nature is against the Dao.
All energies will be created from Wuji (emptiness) in the moment of true nothingness there will also be Yin and Yang. Once the will of heaven is realized Taiji will emerge. What we realize as our truth will give power to Taiji.
Xuan Gong should not focus on beautiful movements but on the power transitions, it will determine the level of one’s Tai Chi and gives the Shifu a good idea of how good ones understanding of Wuji may be. Xuan Gong should look like it is always continuing, not finding a start and an end because the power smoothly crosses from one move through the other giving each individual movement meaning and importance.

We breathe and live but most of the essential things we do subconsciously without realizing its importance. The key of these important things is the natural order in which… Read More

What really is a problem to us are our boundaries, the chains we set ourselves. Believing in one thing is not enough we must explore to know. When the strength is leaving our body, we get out of our comfort zone, and our concentration drops. Battling with ourselves to the limits will give rise to an internal conflict.
