Welcome to Daoist Gate Wudang Arts

Our teacher, Zhou Xuan Yun (pronounced Joh Sh-wen Yoon) was raised on the most sacred mountain in China, Wudang Mountain, where he trained and later worked as an instructor of Taiji Quan (Tai Chi Chuan), Kung Fu and weaponry. Xuan Yun is also an ordained Daoist priest, trained in ritual arts, chanting, divination, and qigong. Dedicating his life to passing the Wudang arts, Xuan Yun divides his time between the U.S. and China, offering classes and workshops on traditional Wudang martial arts, Qi Gong, and Daoist philosophy.

Health

Thousands of years ago the ancient Chinese developed techniques for maintaining health and extending long life.   These time tested methods include meditation, qigong, proper diet, visualization, and massage.  These arts are said to develop the strength of a lumberjack, the flexibility of a child, and the mind of a sage.  

Martial Arts

Wudang Mountain is revered in the martial arts community and is seen by many as the spiritual and historical home of the internal martial arts.   The Wudang martial arts blend the Daoist ways for preserving health together with the traditional  fighting arts, creating a style that develops both spiritual and physical fitness. 

Daoism

Daoism (Taoism) is a group of ancient Chinese practices defined by belief in the Dao 道, the formless, limitless aspect of the universe that underlies all of creation. Daoists study and strive to act in harmony with the rhythm of this cosmic force by reaching a high level of physical and spiritual well-being.
