Our aim is to give people the whole art, as the healing and the fighting are the yin and yang sides of the same coin which complete this internal art. This means that even classes from Taiji and Qigong will involve learning some martial content, theoretically, philosophically or physically. This is because some martial understanding teaches you how to use the body’s structure and movement correctly to generate and cultivate the internal energy system to its fullest.
Internal Fighting Arts
Powered by Fa-jing (explosive energy) the internal Kung fu systems of Taijiquan and Baguazhang teach us how to use our entire bodies, including out internal energy, for self defence. Through learning to release out internal energy and attack the most vulnerable points of the human body, Taiji and Bagua allow us to make use of the attacker’s energetic system to stop a fight fast!
Self Healing and Medical Aspects
Internal Kung Fu teaches how to use the body and harness our internal energy system to perform work… whether it be for self defence, healing or picking up after the kids!
The healing aspects of this art come into play by learning how to use the body as a single unit providing the internal energy with a smooth and constant avenue to flow throughout your body. The ability to harness your internal energy finally leads to the ability to transfer Qi and aids everyone’s natural healing gifts. Once these gifts are added to the healing methods hidden within the movements of the Taiji forms, one has a truly amazing and effective healing art.
