Master teams

Wudang Daoyuan Internal Kung Fu Academy owns a team of masters who have clear linage dating back to 600 years ago and been training for over 20 years with rich teaching experiences. We have cultivated hundreds of people with martial art ability which enjoys a high reputation in the martial art circle both at home and abroad.


So it is truly an ideal place for enjoying the splendid scenery of the world cultural heritage as well as learning the Taoist culture and training for the authentic Wudang martial arts. As a holy land of Taoism and a cradle of Wudang martial arts, Wudang Mountains have a long history over 2000 years.

At the end of Yuan Dynasty (1271 - 1368) and the beginning of Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644), Wudang Taoist Zhang Sanfeng integrated the main achievements of Wudang boxing and created the Wudang inner boxing, which made him the respectful founder of Wudang martial art. The martial art of Wudang has been once unknown to the outside for fairly a long time due to the tradition of Taoism of instructing privately.

In the main trend of globalization, each nation changed itself from autarky to interdependence. The material products have been circulated worldwide, and the spirit products will surely be the common possessions of mankind. So the Taoist culture is attracting more and more attention in the whole world. And the Taoist martial art, which is the embodiment of Taoist philosophy, is accepted by more and more people.


Our school is at the entrance to Xiaoyao Gu (Carefree Valley), Wudang Mountain, Shiyan, China.


Every meal includes a soup, two vegetable dishes and one meat dish. The flavours and style vary with every meal. We have special chef who can customize the meals for students with special food requirements. We think our food is the best among Wudang Kung Fu schools.
