Study

We teach and practice traditional Wudang and Shaolin martial arts. Regular classes, online classes, workshops, seminars, and private lessons are available. Topics covered include movement basics, forms, applications, philosophy, history, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and theory of the forms.

Research

Our research focuses on the health benefits of martial arts practice, traditional philosophy and culture, the particular character of Wudang martial arts, practice methods and self-defense applications.

Study

Learning is the goal, study is how you get there. Along the way, you may find out who you are.

Refinement

Refinement is the art of making small improvements over time. Then, doing it again.

Practice

Practice doesn’t help you learn what you already know. Practice reveals what you don’t know.

Discipline

Discipline reveals who you are, not to the world, but to yourself.

Insight

Knowing something is only the first step. Why it’s important (or not), that’s what matters.

Excellence

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” Aristotle (384 BC – 322 BC)

We have collected and translated some of Prof. Liu’s work on Wudang Taiji and Wudang Qigong, Xingyi, and Bagua. We have additional materials on push hands, qin’na, sword, and martial arts philosophy which are available in Chinese only. Other materials are being readied for translation and publication. We are also working on a private area for students and teachers. It will include commentary on all the topics we teach as well as practice tips and personal notes.
