Shixing Kungfu Academy tells a story of subtle details
【Telling Details in Kungfu】
When Master Chen exercise Taichi, he moves as if he is the cloud in sky, water in stream, changing his movements skillfully, which made people speak highly at the sight of him.
Master Chen usually says:“Besides Taichi fist ,any school of Kungfu is consisted of numerous details. If one disgests the right details, and in the mean time he excercises with diligence, he will progress at a fast pace. What we see among all the kungfu experts is the superfacial skills they perform.However what we can not see in them is a plenty of details that they mastered, that is what makes them masters. We call these Seen and Unseen. Only by combining the two of them , can we form a more complete understanding of martial art. Often, we pay lots of attention on the surface of skills, but take granted for those unseen details.
Therefore, the spirit of taking efforts in learning details deserves more of our attention, rather than the apparent kungfu performing of Master Chen.
Details decides the winner, Unseen efforts pave the way for visible success.
The reason why Wudang Shixing Kungfu Academy makes itself a known place for martial art and health-preserving, is the unseen details achieved.
【Water of Kindness】
No matter when you unfasten the faucet of our dormitory, the hot water will run into your palm in 3 seconds——this 4 star hotel standard is hardly met by many families in China.
This should be attributed to the initial plan of our academy, we integrate the outer magnificent look of the architecture with the comfortable interior hot water cycle system. The hot water system especially in winter provides our students with timely warmth, and expel the coldness in them, thus making everyone feels at home.
As Laocius said in DaoDeJing, the best of man is like water, water benefits all the livings and it does not compete for its own good.Our academy put emphasis on the property of water due to our belief in Daoism. Another reason for the good fame of our academy is we believe we should remain modest like water.
【The Grandmaster Sanfeng Temple】
Inside of Wudang Shixing Kungfu Academy, there is a temple built for grandmaster Sanfeng, which makes us the only Kungfu academy with a temple in it around China.
Grandmaster Sanfeng is the master inclusive of Wudang martial arts as well as the originator of Taiji quan. And now master Chen, the 15th generation of Sanfeng’s Wudang Kungfu shoulder the duty to vigorate the school of Sanfeng kungfu. Many students from home and abroad has worshipped grandmaster Sanfeng with a sincere heart, and they take pride in being taken as a disciple of sanfeng school. Sitting in the temple , grandmaster Sanfeng witnesses the development of our Kungfu Academy, witnesses the inheritance of Wudang Taichi by many of our students.
Master Chen usually teaches his students with words like this: It’s a must that we exemplify our grandmaster Sanfeng, learn diligently while act carefully. In the meantime while we are learning martial art, we should attend to our hearts and moralities, nurture our temperament, thus to achieve a life of completion.
“Inherit Kungfu from Wudang, conduct Taoism to the world”. And Master Chen also note our students, we need to keep in heart the duty to spread Wudang martial art to the world. Wudang martial art not only belongs to Wudang Moutain, it also belongs to China, belongs to the world. We follow the steps of our forefathers, looking for the truth of Wudang martial art, and ,making the Wudang martial art known to the world, thus making benefits all the people.
