ABOUT OUR COMMUNITY

The Wudang Swordsmen Academy offers a variety of avenues for access the Wudang & Daoist arts including the Wudang martial art styles of Taijiquan 太极拳, Xingyiquan 形意拳, Baguazhang 八卦掌, & Taiyiquan 太乙拳. In addition to the open hand practices, WSA offers training in a variety of Daoist armed arts with a specialization in the Wudang methods of the straight sword 剑.

Beyond the martial traditions which popularized the Wudang name, WSA also focuses on the Daoist longevity practices of qigong 气功, meditation, the life nourishing arts 养生功, and select practices of inner cultivation 内功 and internal alchemy 内丹. These life-changing practices are taught separately, or in conjunction with the martial disciplines.

The primary goal of WSA is to cultivate good character through community-building and exposure to the Daoist culture & philosophy. Daoism teaches a path to fulfillment in one's life destiny and in one's character through the refinement of benevolence, righteousness, mercifulness, receptiveness, open-mindedness, & self-discipline.

Founded by Daoist Swordsman Xia Chongyi, the Wudang Swordsmen Academy follows the methods of Wudang Master Zhou Xuan Yun 周玄云, along with supplemental material and practices from a variety of Daoist community members and lineages. Offering a standardized, structured, and progression-based curriculum, Xia offers a way for these arts to not only be passed down to the next generation, but also offers clear methodologies for accessing the skills these practices work to cultivate and refine.

Although Head Instructor Xia travels and is focused on delivering classical training methods around the world, WSA offers many training options in various regions through our study groups. Study groups are community based, and do not require an instructor. The material is organized and communicated via our online programs and with Xia's regular workshops with those in the study group.
