The New Wudang Tai Chi

Against the beautiful backdrop of Yuxu Palace at Wudang Mountain, Grandmaster and Taoist Priest Zhong Yun Long is teaching Wudang Mountain Tai Chi to his students, the Sanfeng Academy which he founded. Known as the Chief Priest of Wudang Mountain, Zhong Yun Long has transformed this remote mountain into a Martial Arts Mecca that rivals Shaolin Temple. This transformation included changing the old Tai Chi forms into modern practice that has been adopted by Tai Chi Chuan schools across Wudang Mountain.

About Master Zhong Yun Long

Master Zhong Yunlong is a 14th generation legitimate inheritor of Wudang Sanfeng Pai (pai equates to sect), an orthodox Wudang Internal Kung Fu successor of two great Wudang Taoist masters and senior priests: Guo Gaoyi and Zhu Chengde.

When Wudang Taoism first opened to the outside world, Master Zhong Yunlong was sent by the Wudang Taoist Association, to unearth Wudang martial arts which were then only being practiced outside the temple.

The Wudang Taoist Association established the first Wudang Taoist Martial Arts Team and Master Zhong was the foremost member of the team. In 1989, Master Zhong replaced the senior Taoist priest Guo Gaoyi as the “Wudang Taoist Association Martial Arts Chief Coach”. At the same time, he was appointed as the principal and chief coach of the Wudang Taoist Kung Fu School by the Wudang Taoist Association. This was the first time Wudang Kung Fu was formally shown in public.
