I was wondering if anyone on this forum had been to train at the Wudang Taoist Kung Fu Academy? I am trying to get in touch with students or previous students who could giver me a differing perspective. Michael said there was someone here who trained there.August 9, 2006 at 3:17 pm #16316
Could you explain the use of your nickname? You don’t use it just for no-reason… so there must be a reason why you use this particular name…August 10, 2006 at 6:55 pm #16318
I believe Fajin is the person you are looking for.August 12, 2006 at 7:21 pm #16320
WudangAlienAlchemist – love your monniker –
I have been thinking about my recco to you,
and I think that if Fagin is available to teach you, he would probably be the best person to train under.
He is over there now, and you might ask him if he is accepting students and his fee.
I think you will get a better training from him than most of the locals. He has already sifted through many different forms for over a decade.

Actually, I’m not teaching there, but will teach. Last time when I went, I mastered Sanfeng Taijiquan, just one style so no, not many forms. Of course, I do know many different forms but that’s from shaolin and Tibetan martial arts. I’m flattered for the compliments though, Michael!
As you know, it takes a long time to be proficient in one style of Internal Martial Arts, so I came here again to learn more styles, as well as the alchemy taught here and would like to teach in Canada soon after.
Can you give me some more info on what you want to come for? I mean is it for long term study, or just to learn something specific, etc. I would like if you can say some more and perhaps when you will plan on coming then we can talk.

I am interested in coming for long term study. Two years at least. I wanted to focus on Bagua and then Iorn body. Probably some Taiji eventually. I was wondering if you could tell me about your experience and training there? I cant get very clear answers from Mr. Wang on certain things. I was wondering about the food and what its like. I am large into nutrition so I just want to make sure the quality is exceptable. Also do the teachers there speak any Enlglish? I would like to learn Mandarin while I am over I just want to know how confused I will be to begin. It is my understanding that you recieve private and group instruction daily. Could you tell me more about this. Also what is the town itself like. Thanks alot.August 14, 2006 at 1:48 pm #16328
Who are you talking to Wendy?August 14, 2006 at 2:26 pm #16330
Is there anyone else than ‘you’ I am talking to?
I was intrigues by your name, if you use a name like that there has to be a reason for it? You openly use it, so I am free to ask what caused you to use that particular name. It is not an inquisition question, contrary. I understand as well you don’t want to explain it, so no big thing if you want to leave it.August 14, 2006 at 3:05 pm #16332
Forgive me I am new to online discusion, and I don’t see anything that directs a question to a certain person besides naming them in the post. I believe that you are speaking to me. So, Wudang I used because it was during a Wudang meditation that my life was transformed also at this point I have dreams every night involving Wudang. Alchemist for I think obvious reasons considering the site that we are posting on. Alien for a wide variety of complex and insane sounding reasons.August 14, 2006 at 5:57 pm #16334
Your name sounds alot like me.

*Wudang town has a small population, but nice people. Very traditional. You have stores there and all, the necessities are all there, a bank, food marts, etc. You'll see when you get there, but don't worry about it that much, most of your time will be spent training.
My advice is to not go there for a vacation, but practice diligently and make progress each day. Discipline is the key, you'll get far. Do you have any prior experience?
Hope that answers it all,

My Plan at this point is to go over to Wudang in about 12 months(give or take a few). As far as my previous experience. I started in Shorin Ji Ryu when I was a young child. I kinda graduated to Taijutsu, which I love very much. However Grandmaster Hatsumi refuses to teach the internal portions of the Martial arts, at least publicly. I have been practicing energetic arts most of my life and Chinese Qigong as a life study for the last say seven years. Recently I have begun studying Wing Tsun I do not think overall it is for me but I am training hard and I am enjoying learning about the system.
Yeah a vacation is not what I am looking for. I want to train long and hard everyday. Thats why I want to go to Wudang.
