Learning About Ancient Chinese History

Learning About Ancient Chinese History

We believe it is important to be on the same level of information as young Chinese people in order to truly understand their story. This presentation is a little above average Chinese folk knowledge of their history.

This is by no means a complete Chinese history lesson, but we have picked out the things that we think are most interesting for our school in order to understand certain backgrounds.

Original Wudang Taijiquan Seminar

Original Wudang Taijiquan Seminar

Taiji Quan (Taiji = the highest, ultimate primal principle, Quan = fist, fistfight) is a highly developed form of the internal martial art and is based on the application of Daoist principles. According to tradition, Taiji Quan was developed in the Wudang Mountains by Zhang Sanfeng, the legendary founder of Sanfeng Pai, and spread across China in several styles from the 17th century. Today, Taiji Quan is better known as a health and wellness exercise around the world.
In the Sanfeng Pai schools, Taiji Quan is an integral part of the whole system, i.e. the Taiji principles are applied in all forms and styles. The seminar offers the unique opportunity to get to know and deepen the Taiji principles and basics in their original form. Suitable for beginners!

Baguazhang – The Circle of Life

Baguazhang – The Circle of Life

After Tai Ji Quan, Ba Gua Zhang is the most famous style of internal martial arts in China. Ba = 8, Gua = oracle sign, trigram, Zhang = palm, open hand; Ba Gua Zhang, therefore, means “martial art of the 8 trigrams”. As in Tai Ji Quan, inner energy is also generated and cultivated here and the use of raw strength is dispensed with. Ba Gua Zhang consists of 8 “small” forms and is practiced walking in a circle, with 8 steps completing the circle. Like the other internal arts, Ba Gua Zhang is also very beneficial for health, concentration, and physical and mental stamina.
Since it is very difficult or even impossible to learn authentic Ba Gua Zhang outside of China, the Wudang Academy offers. For the first time in Europe the opportunity to get to know this art under the guidance of Master Ziji.

Content of the seminar:

  • Basic exercises and basic steps of Ba Gua Zhang
  • 8 Ba Gua Palms

The Modern-Day Taoist And The Hardships

The Modern-Day Taoist And The Hardships

The following content in this video is about a very important topic for every student in my school – also including my students who are committed to training online via our platform.

First of all, we are trying to structure the difficulties of modern life.
Laozi states that we should enjoy things and let them pass like we do not care. We have to understand that nature is about change, and there is no everlasting. The only rule beyond nature is the realm of heaven.

I am very grateful to my online student Sina who pointed out these difficulties. He agreed that I could show his video below:

Thank you. Sina for your effort in pointing all this out, I believe everyone can benefit from it, and we should always be able to get back to our path, focus our efforts, and accomplish our life.

Below is my video response for you to watch:

How Qi (Internal Energy) Works Within the Body

How Qi (Internal Energy) Works Within the Body

The body and mind are deeply connected. We need many things to work efficiently. Some theories are mostly very fragmented and do not explain the whole universe of these principles. 

If one portion of our primary needs is not satisfied, we lack energy or cannot use it efficiently. The Daoist understanding is to reflect on nature and understand what we really need. The natural principles lay the playground for the way of humans.

So how do we get the most of our energy?

First, we need to understand how the individual is built to store and use energy.

The human body has a specific capacity and sensitivity for using energy; this is depending on the physical properties of the body. Let’s think about like a vase, or a vessel of some sort, it is possible to hold energy inside depending on its shape or form. Muscles, for example, do not mean we are energetically stronger; It is essential to find the balance in the body to be able to work efficiently, excessive large muscles will make your energy consumption higher and fatigue faster.

In general, it can be said if one physical appearance is stronger, than the potential for more energy capacity is there, but it can also mean the individual is more emotional and mentally unstable or lacks focus. The opposite is true for individuals with a weaker physical appearance; they have it harder physically but developed because of this a healthy mind and sharp focus. As I said, this is only general, and everybody cannot be generalized, but it is obvious to see that imbalance can bring these results.

It is the master who intends to balance these principles to pave a straight path of harmony for the student.

The path of cultivating Qi

I will list the essential understandings for cultivating Qi in its importance:

  1. Physical training, students within the Sanfengpai learn to become physically stronger, durable, and elastic. This training (Jibengong) will provide the body with the right foundation to develop Qi further on. Once the body can work with these requirements, the students start to use Qi by learning it naturally and practically.
  2.  Tai Ji training, is the control of the extremes, harmonizing our powers is vital for learning to control Qi efficiently. Once the student is physically ready, it is easier to stay calm and focused on these exercises, hypersensitivity, or unable to feel anything only results for students who skipped the first step. The physical body will harmonize the way how Qi works, and the mind can be at ease and focus.
  3. Wu Ji training, also understood as “returning to emptiness.” Once the student has a hold of Qi, the natural order is to find the origin of this internal cultivation. Western people often tend to skip necessary steps and think the Qi will guide by sheer will. We do Wu Ji training to understand ourselves further and preserve our energy. It is what results from the tedious training of body and mind, that our being can find harmony.

Let’s not overcomplicate things further.

There is no magic formula in cultivating Qi. But there are several other things you should keep in mind:

  1. Sleep plenty to let the body fix itself. After each training, the circulation can work, and resting is the only way of repairing damages within the body. Every improvement also means a change inside, and for this, the body needs to be able to activate its regeneration, which only happens during sleep.
  2. Focus on your breath, 90% from our Qi can be used with the right and natural breathing. Our body takes in energy from Oxygen, and this way, we can use Qi more efficiently.
  3. Eat healthily, another way of getting energy is to eat light and healthy food. It will give the body the fundament for improving and changing within. Variation is essential and the ability to feel what the body needs to eat now.
  4. Fix the circulation within the body. Cleaning the body from the inside works with our blood/Qi circulation. Our bone structure, tendons, and fascia can block or prevent this circulation. Therefore it is crucial to get back to the Jibengong training as mentioned above to fix these problems.

This information should all sound logical and natural because the way of the Daoists is a natural way. It is the media and alternative approaches that wake the interest of people who do not know this natural order. I guess that the main reason is to make money to learn special methods. As I said, there is no magical formula or a way to fool your body and mind. The path of Daoists is a way of consistency, hard work, and determination. I am sure it is not a suitable way for everyone, but from my experience, it is that most people change their way of thinking at a certain point in life and realize that their own body and mind is vital for preserving the life quality, and then they start training. In China, people lack social insurance, and self-preservation is an important topic. When people tend to make others responsible for themselves, it will only lead to ignoring our own needs.

How Zhan Zhuang Improves Your Taiji

How Zhan Zhuang Improves Your Taiji

As recently discussed in this post, Zhan Zhuang is an important pillar in internal martial arts. But what skills does Zhan Zhuang actually bring to Taiji practitioners? We want to go into that today.

Feel and recognize Yin and Yang

Through the continuous practice of Zhan Zhuang, we become aware of areas of tension. Like others train for more strength, we train Zhan Zhuang on the way of relaxation. Constant standing means no change for body and mind, but something will change constantly in this exercise with untrained students. It is about accepting situations and perceiving the state. When the body is calm and controlled, the focus should be on the mind next, otherwise, the mind will always find something to deal with. In the state of absolute calmness, we will really experience the states of Yin and Yang. Therefore, a connection to the extreme can be made next.

Yin and Yang in Taijiquan

In Taiji, yin and yang move, it is like the balance is held in two glasses so that none of them drips over. The movement out of balance is the direction to harmony. When someone can keep a close focus on Yin and Yang, the body and mind are in control of the movement. Taiji is thus controlled at the extremes and harmonized therefrom, which is an important basic understanding for self-cultivation.

The Immortal Powers of Zhan Zhuang

The Immortal Powers of Zhan Zhuang

Master Yuan Xiu Gang leading a Zhan Zhuang class:

What is Zhan Zhuang?

Zhan Zhuang is one of the most important pillars in the inner martial art of Wudang. This exercise is a relaxed standing with open arms and shoulders. In Wudang, it is one of the Qi Gong exercises that everyone should do every day.

Why do we stand?

For beginners, Zhan Zhuang is important to feel the tension in the body and to become more relaxed. For advanced users, Zhan Zhuang is important to be able to control the flow of energy. It is also the only exercise that builds up Qi effectively.


Zhan Zhuang has a positive effect on the entire body. The reason for this is breath control and relaxed standing, which calm the brain waves. This significantly reduces stress and the body can concentrate on the stimulation and circulation of blood and oxygen and thus also on qi.

How to practice:

The body requires a certain basic condition, but also a strong mind, to make progress with Zhan Zhuang. It is recommended to exercise at the same place and at the same time every day to avoid further internal conflicts. The duration between 15 and 60 minutes is recommended. Under 15 minutes, Zhan Zhuang is not effective because our brain needs time to adapt to the exercise.

Get the Fastest Internet Speed in China & other foreign countries

Get the Fastest Internet Speed in China & other foreign countries

Hello everybody! Because of the coronavirus, our seminars are canceled for the time being, and so are our local classes. But as a Taoist, there come new opportunities with every situation.

Today I want to write about a topic that has kept me thinking for a very long time. Basically, when I was in China, I had to get high internet speeds and a reliable rendering computer for all the videos I was making in Wudangshan. The following post is interesting when you need the following points:

  • Have a high-end spec Computer that can do anything on a cloud. There is no need to bring a reliable computer with you when you travel.
  • Have extreme internet speeds (900mb/s download and 250mb/s upload) on any location – also in China.
  • A convenient way to share your photos/videos regardless of which country you are in.
  • Keep a stream stable with channel bonding.
  • How to optimize ping & latency issues globally.
  • Have your own high-tier workstation with perfect internet for uploading almost instantly on any platform in a pocket-size format.


First, to have access to all of this, we need an internet connection with at least 15mb/s download. So there we should try to optimize your hardware to get the most out of the available internet connection.

1. Choose your device!

For our case, a normal smartphone would work – but it is a little inconvenient to operate a workstation from a smartphone. I recommend at least a tablet or a low-tier laptop. Android, Apple, and Windows work. Since the hardware doesn’t matter for our situation, I recommend a device with functional IO connectivity and battery life.

Here I recommend some devices which fulfill these requirements in a very cost-efficient way:

HP Stream series (optimized for internet connectivity):

Lenovo Yoga series (convenient to travel with, also check out the tablet)

GPD Laptop series (smallest devices! If you need it really small!)

2. Optimize your WLAN!

You should get an AC1200 USB stick. In most cases, this is much faster than any WLAN module inside a laptop and also has a higher range. I recommend not to choose a too cheap one. The antenna should be powerful, and most of the higher-end antennas have beamforming abilities, meaning they can focus the WLAN signal to get the most out of it. Even with the most badass integrated WLAN card, you will have more success with a powerful USB WLAN antenna that can catch the signal properly and give you the speed we need. In most cases, this should get us a download speed of about 15MB/s, even in very bad environments.

Look up these links to get it:

Make sure your WLAN stick has at least an AC1200 module and a large antenna! This should give you at least a 30% performance boost to integrated WLAN modules to reach the required speed.

3. Last resort: channel bonding!

On the mountain, it can sometimes be a bit inconvenient, but from my experiences, I never needed to take this last resort. If the country is still in development, channel bonding can be a real life-changer.

I am not a partner, nor am I sponsored, but the only VPN that is supporting channel bonding is Speedify. I still recommend VPNexpress service over Speedify, but in terms of channel bonding, it does the job! Channel bonding means you basically use the integrated WLAN card plus the USB WLAN stick to connect to two different internet sources – this can be expensive. Still, it will negate the package loss issue, and you will be able to have decent internet speed for working or even streaming. The two internet connections will be combined, and you will receive a faster internet overall.

If you have the choice – one fast internet connection is still better – and VPNexpress will deliver the faster VPN speeds in China – I tested it and can only confirm this.

4. Virtual Cloud Desktop with high-end graphic cards (like GTX1080 or higher)

Ok now we talked about the requirements – we get internet speed of at least 15mb/s – so what are we talking about exactly? Here comes the real game-changer for your Wudang travels:

We are talking about Virtual desktop machines – they are expensive if you take a glance at what is available. Amazon will ask for this over 100$ a month, and you still would not have the power to render a video properly on it.

The only option that gives you a GTX 1080 and a high-end computer for only 15$/month is Shadow PC. They are market-leading in the US, UK, and EU.

Visit Shadow PC over this link for the friend bonus:

With Shadow PC, we can successfully render on Adobe Premiere or other software 4k videos with ease and fantastic speed. Shadow is a virtual machine, so it will also unblock all websites that are blocked in China, and you will not be affected by lousy internet speeds in China if you want to upload your videos or photos on Youtube or other platforms. Shadow has direct access to high internet speed lanes and provides at least 900mb/s down and 250mb/s upload.

Ok Shadow is excellent and fantastic, but now we come to our next problem:

5. How to transfer files locally from my Laptop to Shadow PC

Since most services are blocked in China, google drive without a VPN is not an option. I had google drive before, and it was not as fast as the option I am about to tell you. It is possible to have a streaming drive that will upload automatically to the cloud regardless of filesize. Onedrive, dropbox, and so on are not optimized for large file sizes, so they are not really an option, and amazon cloud is expensive. We want cloud storage that we can access without a VPN to have the best upload speeds from our local internet connection.

Pcloud is optimized for enormous file sizes – like video files and only offers a one time fee – no monthly costs. The best deal is the 2tb lifetime deal! Check it out here!

I tested Pcloud myself, and I am very happily using it for most of my work and travels! It works in China and has excellent upload speeds for what I need. I use the cloud storage as a bridge to send these files to my Shadow PC. Once the data arrived on the cloud storage, the Shadow PC can instantly access the data because of its high internet speeds, and we can use it for rendering in Adobe premiere.

Workflow: record your videos during the day and upload it overnight – the next day, you are ready to work. Uploading the files is then the shortest part. In China, uploading is usually the most prominent issue, and with Shadow PC, you entirely go around that issue and upload it to Youtube almost instantly.

6. Improve ping and latency issues!

Shadow PC requires us to have 15mb/s and for an enjoyable experience around 40ms Ping. Due to the significant distance from China to a Shadow datacenter, there can be a lot of latency and ping issues. This is also why it is not recommended to work over a virtual machine over long distances. If you don’t want to go around this issue – shadow can still work as an uploading machine for you, but working on it will be inconvenient.

How we fix this issue:

We can use the fastest VPN available to bridge the distance between China and Shadow PC. There is only one option available actually because we need the fastest VPN we gonna choose VPNexpress. Check it out over the link for a bonus!

Balancing latency vs ping:

With VPNexpress, you can choose a location between Shadow Datacenter and China. The closer the location is to Shadow, the better your ping will be but with higher latency. Choose a location closer to China to improve latency but worsen your Ping. If the internet speed is fast enough, it should be better to place the VPN location closer to Shadow. But if the internet is borderline, it would improve your experience by placing the VPN closer to China. In this situation, you should experiment a little since there are many factors involved, but this is the general rule, and you should get the idea.

If the internet is good enough, you can choose TCP connection to improve your package loss. If the internet is borderline, you should select UDP connection; this will make your package loss higher but will keep your internet connection faster overall. There is simply more to it then a fast internet speed. To work properly, you should take all these factors in mind, and you should aim to get a stable and reliable connection instead of the fastest one for connecting with Shadow.


I hope this post was informative for you, and maybe this can be your new travel layout. I dislike carrying lots of hardware with me, and in countries still in development, this can make you feel more secure. A smartphone can also be used with the exact same setup – like mentioned before, and if you need a bigger screen, you can simply connect your smartphone to a TV over an HDMI cable; most smartphones have this functionality and work this way. All you need is an HDMI dongle for your smartphone, and you can work over the TV connected with a mouse and keyboard if you like that. For me, a small laptop felt the most convenient way to make use of this setup, but this doesn’t mean it has to be for you.

Pcloud, VPNexpress, and ShadowPC are the market-leading solutions for this specific workflow, and I hope this will help you as much as it did for me! Note that even if your internet connection is unstable and tends to disconnect – your uploads will be secure on Shadow PC and continue to upload. The virtual desktop will work even when you are not logged in!

Thank you for taking your time and check out one of these links!

Best regards

Important: What You Should Know In A Traditional Martial Arts School

Important: What You Should Know In A Traditional Martial Arts School

Who is who in Chinese

Your direct master or the direct teacher of the school is addressed 師父 (Shī Fù). The grandmaster, the teacher of your teacher, is addressed 師爺 (Shī Yé )
The more senior (not by actual age, but by the time of the study) students of the school, the males are addressed 師兄 (Shī Xiōng), the females are addressed 師姐 (Shī Jiě). The master is one generation above the students. The grandmaster is, therefore, two generations above the students. The order is defined by the teaching-learning relationship, not actual age. The more senior people can address the more junior by name. During class, the teacher must be addressed by the title, no one should address the teacher by name even if you are very acquainted in private. This is very different from western society. For Chinese people, no one ever addresses a teacher by name when talking to the teacher.

How to greet

The conventional Chinese greeting is 拱手禮 (Gǒng Shǒu Lǐ)
Hands together in front of the chest, extend arms out. The right-hand holds fist, left hand holding the right hand.

Greeting grandmaster
師爺好 Shī Yé Hǎo

Greeting master
師父好 Shī Fù Hǎo
– When more than one teacher shows up together, greet the most senior one.

  • The most senior student at the venue leads the greeting, the rest follow in unity.
  • When Shi Ye shows up at the venue when Shi Fu is already present, the Shi Fu leads
    the greeting, and the students follow in unity. But note the titles used are different. Don’t just copy what you hear!
  • When a student arrives at the venue while the teacher is already present, greet the teacher individually. When more than one teacher is present, in general, first greet the most senior one.
  • When saluting the teacher, hold the hand gesture and wait for the reply. Drop the hands after the teacher has responded and dropped his/her hands. If the teacher is occupied by another interaction or task, he/she may only nod and give eye contact, or not respond. In this case, just finish the salute.

Finishing class

When a training session ends, the teacher declares 下課 (Xià Kè) (off class). The students respond with the salute hand gesture and speak in unity 師爺/師父 辛苦了(Shī Yé / Shī Fù Xīn Kǔ Le)(Shī Yé / Shī Fù , we appreciate the effort).

Courtesy in interacting with the teacher

Interact with full attention
– No looking at the phone or having another conversation in parallel when talking to a teacher
– When giving or receiving objects, present both hands
Do not refuse in the learning process
– When asked to demonstrate something, do not be shy or afraid. To refuse to get involved in the learning is considered very rude, and by doing so, you are turning your back on the learning opportunity. Doing something wrong is alright, refusing to try is not.


  • During class, in general, stand in front of the teacher. Sit down or relax only when told.
  • When walking with a teacher, you are on the right side of the teacher, and slightly
    behind. If you are the host of the place or leading the direction, this convention does not apply.
  • When standing with a teacher facing other people, you are on the right side of the teacher. In an interactive demonstration or a dynamic situation, this convention does not apply.
  • For taking seats, the most senior person faces the door of the room. The people closest in relation to the senior (the direct disciple) sit next to the teacher.
  • In general, the teacher enters the door first. However, you can go ahead and open the door.
  • The most senior person takes seat first. Stand in front of the teacher until invited to be seated. In a situation where it is obvious everyone will be seated, no invitation is required. But sit after the senior had sat down.
  • When a meal starts, the most senior person is served first. Students start eating (including picking up the chopsticks or other tableware) only when the teacher has begun unless told otherwise.
