Yin and Yang stand for strength and relaxation. It is always the opposite that makes our movements in Taiji. We have two hands and two feet, but none of these two will ever be in the same state. We speak of transitions in Taiji; These transitions involve strength and relaxation and always need direction and energy.
Daoism teaches us that we should focus on ourselves. Yet ignoring others is just as much an external influence that changes our nature. How do we make our place in a Wudang school?
Looking at the elegance and grace of Wudang masters may be a great inspiration to us, but it is a great step to truly learn from this inspiration for our life.
The policies of the Sanfengpai Schools are based on the preservation of the Taoist tradition and include the appreciation of training, respect for the older Kung Fu brothers, and the promotion of each individual’s self-discipline as a life philosophy and personality education.
The exercises of the Daoists promote longer life and also support physical health. In silence and in meditation, calmness is practiced, with the qigong and tai chi exercises, all necessary channels are opened and released, so that the energy can flow and the body remains vital. If the shell of our mind – the body – is strong and healthy, the mind can spread more easily. Then the body can better tolerate the silence.
Zhan Zhuang is only half as exhausting when the body has many blockages that cushion the very core of inner conflicts because these blockages primarily serve that purpose. The nesting of the self, like a snail, leads to many problems at all levels and is often supported as a protective function of one’s own imagination. Zhan Zhuang is the straightening of our frame of reference and shows us the straight path to the Self, a path of rest.
There is only one Dao, images are empty shells that deviate from the origin. Every drop of the great whole ocean contains a reflection of our self. So we find ourselves in other people and recognize in them our own conflicts. If we then try to “help” these people by trying to solve our inner conflicts in others, that just can not be good. This will be a serious problem if we have never realized who we are.
This beautiful short film gives us a preview of what awaits us in wudang training, and it can quickly happen that you skip some of the lines when it comes to the mental training of the Taoists. How do we understand something we have not understood yet?
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.

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.
People are okay in general by judging themselves and others and putting them and themselves in a place which they perceive as right. Because this worldview stagnates the growth, problems may occur once physical or mental conditions change. Welcome to the path of Taoist practice! 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.

Letting go of our ego and accept failure will resolve all problems we have… Read More
