Hello Everyone,
I am considering going to one of the Wudang schools to train for a period under a month (due to my current job in China I cant take anymore time off sadly.)

I know there are a number of schools listed online, but does anyone have any particular recommendations?

My recommendation are Chen Shiyu and Yuan XIu Gang.

Better you watch some Youtube Videos of them first, because they are very different.

Chen Shiyu:  https://wudang.academy/learning-with-master-chen-shiyu/
Yuan Xiu Gang:  https://wudang.academy/study-at-master-yuan-xiu-gangs-school/

Thanks for the advice, Yuan Xlu Gong's academy was in fact one of the ones I was looking at.
Are you familiar with Chen Shixing's school?

Hi Michael, I have about the same question.  I was originally going to study with Master Gu, after doing some research I decided a proper school would be more appropriate; I am looking at the schools of Masters Yuan Xiu Gang, Chen Shiyu, and Chen Shixing.  I really want to stay in nature, outside of town, arguing for Master Chen Shiyu's school or Master Chen Shixing's.  So I may have the same question as Jonathan.

I am interested in the deeper aspects of Taiji, not only the forms but also the energetic (internal and external) aspects, it's also useful to know how these two schools may differ in this sense.  I really appreciate that you provide this kind of advice here.

It sounds like you need to visit Master Chen Shiyu - you will find what you are looking for:

I believe not much I can tell you - I will not try to convince you or anything. In the end, you must do the decision on your own.
It is a quiet place with the internal studies you describe if you show effort.
Best Wishes

Dear Master Ziji,

You have told me what I needed to hear, thank you very much.  I am already in contact with Master Chen Shiyu's school, I will write them again :-)  I am motivated to put in the work!
