Athletics 武当功夫 In China, the martial arts are dichotomized into two major groups: Wudang and Shaolin Therefore comes the popular saying “In the north respects paid to Shoalin Kung Fu; in the south honor is given to Wudang Kung Fu.” WE TEACH TRADITIONAL KUNG FU & TAI CHI FROM WUDANG MOUNTAIN

Classes available for students age 4+ HIGH IMPACT Kung fu: - Increase strength, flexibility and co-ordination - Strengthen the core body muscles - Improve focus and concentration - Increase energy - Self defence

LOW IMPACT Tai Chi: - Reduce joint & muscle pain - Increase endurance - Relaxation - Better control of the balance - Rehabilitate from injury or illness

101 Hazelglen Drive, Kitchener (2nd floor) Telephone: 519-279-6148 www.canadataoist.com

Wudang kung fu is so popular that it is best known in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. The American hip-hop group name themselves Wutang Clan. In Jackie Chan’s latest Karate Kid movie there were scenes of Wudang kung fu and the temples such as Purple Heaven Temple, the South Cliffs and the Golden Peak. Wudang Internal Kung Fu has the characteristics of overcoming toughness with flexability, hardness with softness & movement with stillness. Wudang Kung Fu not only provides the function of body-strengthening & self-defense but can also preserve ones inner energy. At Canada Taoist Kung Fu School we have direct lineage from Wudang Mountain. One of our instructors lived and trained in Wudang Mountain and he is a direct disciple from Wudang Mountain. Everything we teach is pure and traditional from Wudang Mountain. We teach: Horse Tail Whisk (Fly Whisk), Taoist Monk Spade (fangbien chang), Wudang self-defence, Baji, Xing Yi, and legendary Wudang Straight Swords such as: Wudang Sword, Eight Immortal Sword, Seven Start Sword, Double Handle Sword and Dragon Sword.
