Wudang Elixir Sword



Wudang Kung Fu is one special internal martial arts form in China and enjoys the parallel position with Shaolin Kung Fu in Chinese Kung Fu field. Therefore comes the popular saying ¡°In the north respects paid to Shaoling Kung Fu; yet in the south honor should be given to Wudang Kung Fu.¡±

Just under the direction of this flying flag Wudang Kung Fu began to develop and gradually became rich in contents and looked mysterious from outside after many Kung Fu masters¡¯ hard working and donation. After hundreds years of development, Wudang Kung Fu incorporated much useful nutrition form ancient Kung Fu defence and offence theory, from the theory of I Ching, from the practice of achieving stillness and emptiness widely adopted in inner alchemy, and thus forming its own special features as summarizing the essentials, detouring to reach the core, nourishing Qi, concentrating attention, getting free of any frivolousness and rigidity. Accordingly, Wudang Kung Fu seems more to aspire for the full inner strength, the tremendous harmonization between hardness and softness, and the ever-changing position adapted for different circumstances.
