Wuji refers to the state before Big Bang, when everything was One. It is an ancient Internal martial art system. If we want to trace its origin, we must begin with the Book of Changes (Yijing, Zhou Yi). Yijing describes actions in nature and laws of these actions. Yijing has been compiled during many generations; its essence is the observation of phenomenons that are happening in human body (micro cosmos) and in our surroundings (macro cosmos). All of these phenomenons follow certain laws, which can be discovered by mindful and aware observation. In this process it is essential to get to know our own body, get to understand it, make it strong and healthy. Wujiquan is based precisely on these principles, which are healing our body and prolonging our life, building our body, strengthening it and also learning how to defend it if necessary. Wujiquan is one of the five Taoist arts that were thought only in family or in monastery.
In Wujiquan, Wude (Martial virtues), are the most important part. They are: "Respect", "Tolerance", "Compassion", "Righteousness", "Goodness”, “Elimination"(of one’s bad habits).
In Wujiquan there are empty hand forms, weapon forms (short stick, broadsword, sword …) push hands (wrestling in Internal martial arts), sanshou (free fight), neigong (internal work), pressure points techniques, life nourishing exercise, etc. Great emphasis is put on push hands, which is the basic for the free fight. Long term practice of Wujiquan has positive effects on one’s health. It can prevent and control high/low blood pressure, diabetes, different kinds of stomach and intestines problems, problems with joints and spine… Wujiquan is suitable for all ages and genders.
