Study and Practice
We teach Traditional Wudang taiji and qigong along with bagua, xingyi, and other internal martial arts. With a traditional approach, students are encouraged to develop a basic level of proficiency quickly and then to refine it, adding layers of understanding through repetition. There are no quick fixes to developing skills in any or all of these arts. Practice and reflection are required.
For those who are interested, competitive training is available. Tournaments can be challenging. They can also be fun and are an excellent way to expand learning and meet people from other places.
