Welcome to the Wudang Research Association

Red Chair

The Wudang Research Association was originally founded in China in 1982 to promote study and research in the philosophy and practice of traditional Wudang martial arts.

The company was registered in the United States in August 1996. In November of that same year, we brought the first edition of our web site online. We have published several books and contributed numerous articles to other publications.

The US branch of the Wudang Research Association was created to bring the teachings and practice of traditional Wudang martial arts to the West. Famous in China but little known elsewhere, the Wudang martial arts have a long history. Named after the Wudang Mountains, they are an orthodox school of Chinese gongfu. Today, thanks to the opening of China and the efforts of many teachers, more and more people have become familiar with the practices, teachings, and benefits of Wudang martial arts.

When we began, there were very few publications in English which even mentioned Wudang arts, let alone provided resources for serious students. This created a serious challenge for anyone who was not fluent in Chinese. We wanted to remove this language barrier so those who wanted to learn could gain access to greater knowledge.

Our first step was the publication of this web site in November 1996. Our site is one of the first and remains one of the oldest dual-language English and Chinese sites on the internet. We followed with the publication of our first dual-language print book in 1998.

Business Consulting Services

As we grew, we realized that our cross-cultural experience could be helpful to others. In 2000, we expanded our vision to include a range of business services, with an emphasis on facilitating communications and relationships between US and China businesses. We offer process and performance evaluation services (six sigma), dual-language technical and requirements documentation, software translations, and trade facilitation.

Managing communication and collaboration needs within a single office can be a challenge. Keeping track of important documents, scheduling meetings, and finding the right person isn’t always as easy as it should be. When your business is halfway around the world and your people speak more than one language, simply making a phone call can be a problem.

For over 25 years, we have provided businesses with document management solutions, created easy-to-use tracking tools, and helped companies in the US and China bridge the language and culture gap.

As a Microsoft Partner certified in SharePoint and Small Business Solutions, we offer you comprehensive solutions to manage your document storage and collaboration needs. Whether you need a secure cloud solution so your team in Chicago can share files with your office in Shanghai or a well-designed solution for communicating with your customers we can provide the best tools for your business.
