I have been practicing Wudang Kung Fu since November 2016 with Master Ziji in Vienna. Today I finished learning all of the basic forms Ji Ben Quan, Xuan Gong Quan Yi Lu, Er Lu, San Lu, Fu Hu Quan, Tai Ji 28 and I also work regularly with the two Qi Gong routines. I love all of them, never have I been doing a more intense workout or sport that requires that much concentration and will power. I must say, even if it is just half a year for now, my level of concentration, my health and my awareness over whats going on in my body has rapidly risen and because the consistent training always pushes me to my limits physically and mentally, my cardiovascular-system and my spirit has also been improved a lot. My master and about 10 students from our academy are about to visit Wudangshan and our Grandmaster Chen Shiyu in August, so for now thats one of my biggest motivations to be well prepared. My personal goals are actually endless, but right now I am working really hard on strengthening my heart and increasing my concentration which brings a certain emotional balance and a little taste of what it means to be in tune with nature or the tao. I really recommend taking online lessons from the Wudang Online Academy or to visit our Kung Fu school in Vienna! Blessings and enjoy your training - JIAYO!!!

I also continue to incorporate some Yang style 108 long form, Yang style Taijiquan Sabre and Chen style Bang into my practice (I had been practicing Yang and Chen style Taijiquan prior to coming to Wudang style).

It is my intention to begin learning Wudang Taiji Sword this fall.

To all my fellow practitioners, students of life and followers of the Way.
