Master Yuan Xiu Gang: Taoism and Martial Arts

Daoist priest Master Yuan Xiu Gang (Wudang gong fu academy ), 15th generation disciple of Wudang SanFeng Sect, shares in this exclusive interview for Life Arts Media the principles of Daoism and their connection with martial arts.

In 1994, Master Yuan was selected by the Wudang Taoist Association for Taoist Wushu Performance Team, and initiated into the Purple Heaven Palace, the largest Daoist temple at Wudang. With the blessing of the Chairman, Master Yuan joined the circle of Daoist culture. Since then, Master Yuan has furthered his practice of Daoist philosophy and internal gongfu.

    Good work dude. Awesome interview.

    Came here via Tao Bums. I’m working on a Tao Te Ching “for the western mind” as we speak, after recognising many of the same things as in your mission statement. This interview has definitely helped reinforce my understanding so thanks. 😀

    great advice. the idea of soft as water require high level of understanding…. but if you think of water as a flowing object that can go anywhere, can turn to anything …. then it is a simple yet very deep philosophy.
    I want to ask master Yuan about how to meditate sufficiently…. as it is hard ,just free your disturbed mind alone, so how can we stay focus our mind to be ONE with Nature???
    Many thanks. I admired master Yuan as a martial art expert as a philosopher too.
