This is awesome! The Videos of Shifu Ziji allowed me to get a whole new perspective on the real practice of Internal Kung Fu and Tai Ji. His explanations are deep and easy to understand and the effects of the elegant and yet simple and natural Wudang postures and movements are real, many and positive. […]
I have been teaching and practicing Qigong since 2007 and I have been looking for a school that can expand my practice and can teach more martial disciplines. I believe the Wudang school is a wise choice.
