Taijiquan is an internal Chinese martial art practiced for both its defence training and its health benefits. The term Taiji refers to a philosophy of the forces of yin and yang, related to the moves. Originally it was conceived as a martial art and soon it was also practiced for a variety of other reasons like achieving greater longevity. As a result a multitude of training forms developed over the ages, both traditional and modern.

Wudang Taiji Gongfu is based on Daoism and is the source of all forms of Taijiquan. It is the purest form for which interest is growing worldwide. There are however only a few teachers who are actually trained in Wudang Daoism, and are qualified to teach.

The Dao gives birth to One; One gives birth to Two; Two gives birth to Three; Three gives birth to the ten thousand things; The ten thousand things support yin and embrace yang,
This adaptive qi is considered harmony.

This purest form of Taiji will be taught in the North of the beautiful and wild natural park Serra de São Mamede situated in Portugal on the border with Spain. So from the Wudang Mountains in China, now in São Mamede Mountains a Wudang monk will teach you about life and health.
