Chinese Internal Arts

Originally called Nèijiā (Chinese: 內家; literally: “internal school”) it is a term in Chinese martial arts, grouping those styles that practice nèijìng (Chinese: 內勁; literally: “internal strength”), usually translated as internal martial arts.  Wǔdāngquán is a more specific grouping of internal martial arts named for their association with the Taoist monasteries of Wudang mountains in China.  The most popular styles include: Tàijíquán, Xíngyìquán and Bāguàzhǎng.  Our school specializes in these two styles of Neijia but also teaches the self cultivation practices found in Daoyin (導引) and Qigong.  Our soft styles are balanced with harder styles of Gongfu for those students who seek it.
