I came to Master Yuan's school for the first time in 2008 and immediately fell in love with the place. I was impressed with the intensity of the training and felt an easy camaraderie with the other students I met there. The more time I trained with Shifu and the coaches, the deeper my respect for the school became. Master Yuan is an amazing mixture of a stern teacher and a compassionate, fun-loving mentor, and likewise the other students and coaches help create a dynamically playful and disciplined environment. These qualities and the progress I have seen in myself since I have begun training there have me constantly scheming about how I can spend more time at this amazing place.

I first came to Wudang to attend a workshop on Daoist philosophy. At the end of the workshop I decided to stay in this beautiful and inspiring place to broaden my studies through the practices of qigong, taiji quan and meditation. I chose the school because of the emphasis placed on the internal martial arts.
Master Yuan –being a highly accomplished martial artist- has unique training methods that allow students to form an excellent foundation to build upon. Grasping the deeper levels of meaning in internal practices and Daoist philosophy can be difficult to put into words in any language. But Master Yuan is able to relay the students the wisdom and benefit of martial arts, and a deeper understanding of the meaning behind the practice with exceptional skills. He is compassionate and motivating towards his students, offering individual instructions into the challenges that inevitably rise during the study.
The profound insights and knowledge transmitted from a master is irreplaceable. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to study with Master Yuan since 2007 in this friendly and supportive community.

I came to China in search of a training that was more in depth, more absorbing and more holistic than anything I'd previously found in Australia.
So, in August of 2009, I travelled to Wudang to take part in Master Yuan's 5 year Traditional Class.
I won't lie, at times it has been torturous, however I wouldn't trade that time or those experiences for anything.

The people here, other students, staff and Master Yuan are all so welcoming. It has helped me feel like part of a family and circle of friends while I'm away from my original one in Australia. This has been monumental in being able to dig deeper and keep on keeping on.

Through my good fortune at finding a Master like Master Yuan, I hope that in the next 4 years I can get the best out of myself and become a natural person as well as an excellent Wushu practioner.

If anyone wishes to contact me about training here, please don't hesitate.

Since I was a little girl I have been very interested in martial arts, but when I arrive here everything changed. Even though I studied here only for a month, started to see the kung fu in total different aspect, which opened my eyes at some point. Really thank you all for the amazing experience of living and studying here and looking forward to come here again.

I arrived at Mount Wudang mid-September and straight away was made to feel comfortable by master Yuan as I was asked what I was interested in learning over a cup of green tea. That afternoon I walked up to the temple to watch the students train and to get a feel for the place and after speaking to a few foreign students and seeing the temple for the first time (which is impressive) I was even happier with my choice of school here in China.

Over the next 6 weeks I studied Xing Yi and as a complete beginner, was glad that I had a good master to guide me as it wasn't as simple as I first thought it would be…the way that sifu teaches is very good as he takes into account your personal abilities, Click to browse...

I came to the school by chance as I travelled to Wudangshan. Here I learned the 5 Animals Qi-Gong in just five days. It proves me health and gives my Chen-Style Tai Chi more quality. As an Artist I appreciate the Taoist knowledge behind the movements.

In 1997 it was the first time that I heard of Taijiquan. At that time I trained the origins of Silat (a Crane Style for Grace and Purity). The system is called “Bangau Putih” (White Crane)”. Mainly I learned also Qigong, the basic of beginning Taijiquan. Together in 1999 I learn the 24-Step Taijiquan (movements selected from Yang Style Taijiquan) and the 48-Step Taijiquan (Yang-,Chen-,Wu-and Sun-Style plus elements of Push Hands) and do them before I start to train new Forms.

I stayed in the Academy six months and I learned taiji28 \taiji13 \taiyiwuxing-quan\ xuanwu-quan \taihe-quan \baguan-zhang\ five animal qigong and playing.

I really enjoyed training in the temple, the atmosphere; the energy of the place is unique. It is the best place in Wudang. The teaching of Sifu has been very helpful to understand the internal way, and gave me all the knowledge I needed to progress in Kung Fu. It has been a wonderful experience and definitely changed my perception and broadens my scope not only for martial arts, but also for life.

When I first arrived at Yuan Shifu's school I had no idea what to expect. I soon learned to enjoy the regular training and found myself loosening up in a painful way. All of my injuries started to come up and healed themselves through the practice. It has been a seemingly short 11 months here and I will miss it. I've learned a great deal about my body and mind simply by following Shifu's teachings.

First of all I would like to thank master Yuan for a great training opportunity. During my stay I improved my Sanda techniques by practicing with the training assistants, and I also improved my Tuishou skills by practicing with Master Yuan himself. I also got to practice 3 forms XuanWuQuan-TaiHeQuan-and 5 animal Qigong, I really have to say it was a good opportunity for me to improve my Kungfu skills and I wish to come back later one day.

Dear Master Yuan, I'm hardly continuing my 5 animals Qi Gong practice and I can see that your teachings improved both my Qi Gong and also my Bagua. I wish I were there in your school cause I felt at home and I miss the energy and the atmosphere of Wudang. I can say without any doubt that I spent in Wudang one of the most important period of my life. Thank you again and see you next year. Filippo

El ambiente en la escuela es muy faimiliar y la disciplina de las clases autenticamente china, los profesores son fantasticos y las clases y correcciones de Master Yuan un autentico tesoro.

I came to Master Yuan in search of traditional taoist training, to better my understanding of the Wudang style and to broaden my knowledge in the arts that I was currently studying . During a two month stay Master Yuan not only exceeded all of my expectations, but fulfilled all of my martial arts needs for a complete training. I left the school stronger, more focused and with the knowledge and experience you will not find anywhere else. I look forward to my return. Thank you Shifu
