Taijiquan


WuDang Martial Arts Centers is an affiliate school of Heaven Man Earth Internal Arts International and as such is dedicated to the propagation of authentic Yang style taijiquan. With training methods to achieve one’s goals in the health, martial and spiritual aspects of taijiquan.

The basic body skills, chi gong, forms, weapon training, pushing hands and fighting skills are drawn from two Yang style lineages making what we consider to be one of the most compete and authentic Yang style transmissions available today.

Shifu Adam Mizner has trained extensively with a number of masters from both the Huang Sheng Shyan lineage and the Yang Shao Hou lineage and transmits the outer system and the inner technologies of these systems in a pure and direct way in a direct transmission as a 7th generation Yang style Tai Chi Chuan teacher.

As the system is taught, students work first through the Huang Sheng Shyan system as a direct doorway into the internal. The technology heavily focuses on developing song and ting and the total abandonment of external force or Li.

If and when students achieve proficiency in the methods above then one graduates to work on the Yang Shao Hou system which is considered the oldest form of Yang family taijiquan available today. The outer forms and inner technologies learned at this stage teach the student to work with his/her already highly developed internals in a new and more complex method. The training is much more demanding and difficult and basically unachievable without achievement in the previous material.

The union of these training methods into one progressive system, under the skilled guidance of Shifu Adam Mizner, produces an extremely deep and complete system of authentic Yang style taijiquan. In our experience this alive system produces results unmatched anywhere else, leading the student from beginner to entering the true door of the internal and right through to the higher mysteries of taijiquan.

“As I teach it, the purpose of the internal training is to achieve balance and harmony. When yin and yang are in balance and the mind and body in harmony we can maintain zhong ding and live in peace.”
