As a Holy Land of Taoism and a cradle of Wudang martial arts, Wudang Mountains have a long history over 2000 years. At the end of Yuan Dynasty(1271-1368) and the beginning of Ming Dynasty(1368-1644), Wudang Taoist Zhang Sanfeng integrated the main achievements of Wudang Boxing and created the Wudang inner Boxing, which made him the respectful founder of Wudang Martial Art. The martial art of Wudang has been once unknown to the outside for fairly a long time due to the tradition of Taoism of instructing privately.
In the main trend of globalization, each nation changed itself from autarky to interdependence. The material products have been circulated worldwide, and the spirit products will surely be the common possessions of mankind. So the Taoist culture is attracting more and more attention in the whole world. And the Taoist Martial Art, which is the embodiment of Taoist philosophy, is accepted by more and more people.
Mr. Lu Xun has said: “ The bedrock of Chinese culture lies all in Taoism.” The exchange of traditional culture between two nations should firstly protect the cultural bedrock of its own nation. The purpose of the establishment of Wudang Daoyuan Internal Kungfu Academy is to spread Taoist culture to the whole world and let more people benefit from wudang taoist martial arts and taoist healthpreserving.
In 1994, the former dean of National Martial Art Institute Zhang Yaoting visited Wudang Mountains. After watching the show of Wudang Martial Art, he delivered a speech in high spirits: “Training others with skill, presenting others with its real way.”
In 1996, the former director of national physical commission Wu Shaozu visited Wudang moubntains. After watching the show he took photos with everyone and said: “ The Wudang Boxing combines the temper force with grace, the Tai Chi Boxing appears naturally and smoothly just like floating clouds and flowing water.”
In 1999 the former president and the secretary-general of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China visited Wudang mountains and gave a high praise to Wudang Boxing: “Wudang Tai Chi is so good that everyone should learn it.”
