Wudang Academy - Traditional Sanfeng Cultural Heritage
The Center of Wudang San Feng Pai Martial Arts

Origin

The martial arts of the Sanfeng lineage are a collection of traditional Daoist martial arts of authentic origin. Unlike many other schools, the Sanfeng Lineage is not based on a long history from its name. Nevertheless, Sanfengpai identifies with the practical authenticity of the training methods and the effective implementation of the legend Zhang Sanfeng himself.

Martial Arts

The Daoists’ original fighting and healing methods are based on the skills that have been developed through intensive training. Therefore, after a decade of training, skills can be considered sufficient for a San Feng Pai student. The origin of the Daoist martial art is based on skills development, so the training path and permanent identification with personal development are of great importance.

Philosophy

The self is part of the environment, and to be in harmony with it, one should study the nature around one. It is the extremes, the opposites, that create everything. Hence, Yin and Yang are building the concept of balance. Everyone is part of the whole. From which everything arises, the Dao is the gateway to the total understanding that Daoists strive for.

The Cultural Heritage of Traditional Daoist Martial Arts

Those who do not know speak, and those who do say nothing. Anyone can understand the fruits of training after taking the first step. Without getting in your own way, you can only work with yourself if you are ready. Whoever sells the golden donkey can be successful for a short time. In the long run, the Wudang San Feng Pai does not try to sell you anything but welcomes you with open arms when you are ready. This is because the Wudang Sanfengpai traditional arts are threatened with extinction due to the commercialization of Chinese martial arts. In 20 years, who will remember how the master could run up a wall up to 4 meters high? How did he interpret the Taiji exercises? Some approaches and insights are on the verge of being lost forever. If today’s world is ignorant and only wants cosmic energy and mixed martial arts, then it is the task of the remaining Daoists to show how it can be done differently. Wudang Sanfengpai is a very practical martial arts lineage that can work on all levels of self-cultivation.
