It is never too late to start your Kung Fu.
What: The Wudang arts are sometimes referred to as 'internal' or 'soft' martial arts, as opposed to
martial arts like Karate or Shaolin Kung Fu, which are called 'external' or 'hard' martial arts.
The external arts focus on building external strength, are typically offensive, and use
isolated body movements. The internal arts work on building inner strength, are typically
defensive, and use whole body movements. The focus of training for Wudang Kung Fu is on inner strength or “nei jin.” Inner strength refers the ability to use the body's qi or vital
energy in coordination with your movements.
Who: Daoist priest Zhou, Xuan-Yun grew up in a temple on Wudang Mountain, where he studied martial arts, as well as Daoist philosophy and religious practices. Living in the U.S. since 2009, he is dedicated to preserving and teaching the traditional Chinese arts.
When: Regular class schedule: Tuesday/Friday at 6 p.m.
