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!

Sleeping is not the same as sleeping, it depends on how you sleep, where and when. In Daoist doctrines, it also matters in what mental and physical condition you sleep. While you can sleep at the same place and time; under different physical and mental conditions, the effect of sleeping varies. What is Sleep? Sleep for Daoists is a moment of regeneration, a time to let go, not thinking anything and go… Read More
In our country we see many different kinds of tea, also from China but how come they can be so cheap when proper Chinese tea is often higher priced in China? Once you have been in China, you taste the difference in tea and wonder why you cannot get this in your country. The answer is quite simple: If companies would import proper Chinese tea the prices would dramatically skyrocket, you can expect… Read More
Thomas Morillon came from France and opened his very own green tea farm directly in the ancient Wudang Mountains. His farm is very small compared to the big commercial ones and most of the work he does by himself. He has a passion for producing organic green tea. His small farm can produce up to 100kg every year, and after November he is always sold out. The harvest is in April, and… Read More
We, martial artists, enjoy fighting, of course, this what we have been doing all this time. We don’t always need someone to fight against; one can hone his skills alone with dedication. The essence of a fight, however, is that there is an opponent. It is crucial how students in martial arts enjoy their fights. Instead of letting aggression take over, the Wudang basic training is established in a traditional way to… Read More
Our time in Wudang was over in an instant, at least that’s how it felt for all of us. Our travel back to Austria was very tiring, and that is why this post came out a bit later.
We had many preparations to do for our departure on 28th. We were at the post office and sent our swords home which by the way was very expensive. We all have a performance tomorrow and need to sleep early.
Today we did not make many pictures but many new videos. In the evening it started to rain and we were unable to train properly.
Today on our free day we went to the highest point in Wudangshan – the Golden Peak! We made many pictures and videos today, enjoy the gallery!
After training, we went to town to buy green tea and eat traditional Beijing Duck. We met some people and did some trading in the city, as well as getting our handmade Taiji uniforms from the tailor.
Today we had a group from Argentina coming to our school. Besides new friends, we focused on training!
Training was as usual, and we learned many new things. Chen Shiyu showed us his Xianmenjian which we will record on Friday. At the evening he wrote beautiful calligraphy for us.
