Xu Yaojin, Group Leader, Director of Wudang Martial Art Bureau.

The Wudang Mountains are famous throughout the world for a complex of Taoist monasteries and martial arts schools, where the most ancient form of Chinese martial art, wushu, arose. The Wudang Martial Arts Group is the only professional group that can display the martial art of the Wudang Mountains. The philosophical framework of this self-defense technique hinges on a merger and fusion of the opposing yin and yang and the five primary elements of nature: water, earth, fire, wood and metal. All this is reflected in wushu movements, which look like drifting clouds or running water. They aim to achieve rehabilitation and rejuvenation of the body.

Since its inception, the group has performed in front of the most authoritative government leaders of China and other countries, toured South East Asia and West European countries.
