Study with Grandmaster Zhong Yun Long

Master Zhong Yunlong is a 14th generation legitimate inheritor of Wudang Sanfeng Pai (Pai equates to sect), an Orthodox Wudang Internal Kung Fu successor of two great Wudang Taoist masters and senior priests: Guo Gao Yi and Zhu Chengde.

When Wudang Taoism first opened to the outside world, Master Zhong Yunlong was sent by the Wudang Taoist Association, to unearth Wudang martial arts which were then only being practiced outside the temple.

The Wudang Taoist Association established the first Wudang Taoist Martial Arts Team, and Master Zhong was the leading member of the team.

In 1989, Master Zhong replaced the senior Taoist priest Guo Gao Yi as the “Wudang Taoist Association Martial Arts Chief Coach”. At the same time, he was appointed as the principal and chief coach of the Wudang Taoist Kung Fu School by the Wudang Taoist Association. This was the first time Wudang Kung Fu was formally shown in public.

OUR ACADEMY SPECIALIZES IN TEACHING:

Taoist culture and training future coaches of Wudang Kungfu and Nourishing Life Practices. 

It is not a place for sightseeing and entertainment, but for cultivating stillness of mind and developing a deeper understanding of Taoism. As such, the environment is simple and supportive of a reclusive lifestyle, secluded from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Our academy is not a hotel, but rather a place for study and personal enrichment.

San Feng Academy is situated at the foot of the Wudang Mountains, surrounded on three sides by mountains.  It is well located with good natural energy.  The environment is quiet and beautiful, with a temperate climate. On the one hand, It is well-located and easy to access; on the other hand, it’s separate from town, is surrounded by tangerine groves and has clean air and abundant quiet. All in all, it’s a blessed place for Martial Arts and Nourishing Life practitioners and ascetics to develop and practice their skills.  The location is both convenient for daily life and favorable for practice.

Background

Wudang is the birthplace of Taiji Quan, a practice created by Great Master Zhang Sanfeng more than 700 years ago. Based on the theories of Yin, Yang & five-element, Emptiness-Solidity combination, Tu, Na, Cai, Bu as theory, the essence of Taiji Quan is consistent with human life being in harmony with nature: natural and smooth, like floating clouds and flowing water. Taiji Quan’s continuous, flexible and natural characteristics attract the eyes of and promote the well-being of mankind. Wudang Neijia Quan, a mystical practice which combines martial arts and nourishing life cultivation, has the characteristics of softness overcoming hardness, stillness overcoming motion, four ounces overcoming 1000 pounds. It is the vital essence of Chinese Wushu and a treasure of Eastern culture.

Today, tens of millions of people all over the world practice Taiji Quan & Nejia Quan, benefitting from the legacy of the grand master Zhang Sanfeng, Our mission is to teach Taiji Quan in a standardized and systematic way so that Taiji Quan may bestow all people with vibrant health and long life. We are united around the 14th generation Wudang San Feng Pai Master to learn Taiji Quan together, to research and improve the practices of Taiji Quan & Neijia Quan, and to promote Taiji Quan all over the world through activities that include instructor training, competition, seminar and video study.
