TAI CHI = MOVING MEDITATION
Pai Yung Tai Chi is the “internal” discipline of the Pai Lum Tao (Way of the White Dragon). Pai Yung Tai Chi is itself composed of three internal arts: Yang Style Tai Chi, Kwan Nien Chi Kung, and Pai Chi Kon.
Tai Chi Chuan, “Grand Ultimate Fist”, is an ancient art of slow, rhythmic movements, providing internal training for health and strength. The motions also have self defense applications. Many health benefits are now documented in Western Science, including lowering blood pressure, reduced lower back pain, improved balance, reduced stress, and an overall sense of well-being.
Pai family style of Tai Chi not only includes the popular Yang style short and long forms, but also includes ancient internal training such the temple exercises, Buddhist Monk Boxing, Ghost Walking form, Pushing Hands and Iron Palm to name a few.
Pai Lum (“White Dragon”) Kung Fu is an ancient art with origins in the Shaolin temple. Unlike karate, kung fu is more circular in its motions, continuously flowing, with more “open” hand attacks. It includes hand strikes, grappling, kicking, body conditioning, iron palm, “swai jow”, “chin na” and much more. The white dragon studies all the animals of the temple in order to learn to strategies and types of self defense: Tiger, Crane, Leopard, Snake, and Dragon as well as many unusual animal movements and theories such as White Ape, Mantis, Monkey and Shark.
To advance through the ranks, the student must become proficient in kuens (forms), fist sets (self defense techniques), drills, sparring techniques, theory, and weapon training.
