Mount Wudang is considered the birthplace of Wudang Martial Arts.
Wudang is renowned as a research center for learning and practicing meditation, martial arts, traditional Chinese medicine and arts related to Taoism. Before the Songs dynasty, Zhang San Feng (祖师 祖师) was reported to be the originator of tai ji Quan and would have allowed the development of Martial Arts in Wudang. Many talented masters have succeeded each other in wudang to enable the development of boxing and wudang kung-fu, a mysterious martial art combining body and mind, flexibility and firmness, power and softness … .
Wudang martial arts are also considered a true art of health and fitness.
In 2019, Wudang Shaolin Dream opened its own Chinese martial arts school directly in Wudang at the top of the mountain directly in the main temple.
This allows everyone to enjoy the setting, the traditional look of wudang, the calm … and the unique experience of training inside the temple. We can therefore enjoy the good aspects of Wudang combined with the good sides to be a school offering many courses.
By this means, we propose all new types of training, whether traditional, competitions-oriented … or new training methods that combine Western science / pedagogy with Chinese tradition / expertise.
Trainings are taught by monks, coaches or teachers recognized
The trainings and courses are usually right inside the temple and its surroundings,
