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.¡±
Zhang Sanfeng, the founder of inner Kung Fu, stayed there in history as a flying flag for 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.
Taking breathing techniques and Qigong as its core,
Wudang Kungfu pays much attention to the cultivation of internal energy.
And after long time evolution, Wudang Kung Fu has been gradually integrated
with the theories of Yin and Yang, Wuxing (Five Elements), Bagua (Eight
Diagrams) and Jiu Gong (Nine Tunes). Taiyi Unfettered-style Palm fully
reflects the philosophy of Zhuang Tzi, one creator of Taoism, and his
free, unfettered Taoism ideology. Technically it emphasizes the skills
of locking the human channels and breaking the bones by points arresting,
snatching or thrusting the vital points of the body. Sometimes it is characterized
as silent as a stone in the deep ocean bottom, but, sometimes free as
like cranes flying and dancing. The routine should perform naturally,
smoothly in low postures.
The teaching program is generally divided into many phases, in order to teach practitioners in a very quick way. Generally, the first is full demonstration of whole phase, then individual movement presentation, then movement application, then disciple gives a demonstration. It is English version.
