Wu Dang Qi Gong Fundamentals

Shao Lin and Wu Dang are both traditional Chinese martial arts, but for thousands of years, the Wu Dang arts were kept secret from the outside world. Ancient Chinese Wu Dang San Feng martial art comes from Wu Dang Mountain, in Hubei Province, which is the world's largest Taoist center. Taoism is an ancient Chinese philosophy that teaches people to live a refined life, in harmony with nature. It is worth it to do some research regarding the differences between philosophical Taoism and religious Taoism if you plan to learn Tai Chi or Qi Gong, since the practice of our Tao Tai Chi Studio is based on the philosophical Taoism and the Wu Dang martial arts relate to religious Taoism. Qi Gong is practiced as a way to improve health, spirituality, and it is also essential in martial arts training. Qi Gong was created by the early Chinese Taoists to refine the body and mind. The term Qi Gong frequently occurs both in classical Taoism and the religious early Taoist manuscripts. The earliest records were written by the Taoist Xu Xun during the Jin Dynasty. Qi Gong methods were mentioned in the books “Lao Tzu” and “Chuang Tzu”. Qi Gong has been adapted by many martial art schools and styles besides the Taoists. During this course, you will explore the life force “Qi” and discover insight into traditional martial arts training, no matter what style you practice.

An Introduction to WuDang Martial Arts and The Essence of Tai Chi

As the basis of Wudang Tai Chi, Zhang San Feng Tai Chi 13 shì (Simplified Chinese:张三丰十三势; pinyin: zhāng sān shí sān shì ) is considered to be the foundation of Tai Chi forms or movements. The original form was created by the Taoist priest Zhang San Feng in the 14th century. Zhang San Feng 13 shì consists of 13 sets of movements, encompassing both offensive and defensive applications. In order to express the laws of Yin and Yang and five elements in Tai Chi, the 13 shì incorporates the concept of the five steps, in addition to the eight types of hand movements. Zhang San Feng, who was proficient in martial arts, Taoist medicine, and inner alchemy cultivation, incorporated activating the meridian lines of the human body into the Tai Chi 13 shì. The Taoist inner alchemy technique involves enhancing the circulation of the meridian lines to prolong life. Tai Chi 13 shì is a method to regulate the accumulation of Qi and the flow of blood in the meridian channels.
