The Arts

The Internal Arts is known as 内功 Nei Gong in Chinese.  It is also known as Wu Gong.  It is the combination of the terms “Wu Shu” and “Qi Gong”. Wu Shu translates to martial arts or better known as Kung Fu.  “Qi Gong” means “energy work”.  Instead of saying “Wu Shu Qi Gong”, the Chinese traditionally combined them into “Wu Gong”.  Even though many people have never heard of Wu Gong, it is a vital part of a martial artist’s and health enthusiast’s life.  It also includes Tai Ji Quan and meditation.

The Internal Arts are unique because the practice starts with focusing the mind for strength, health, and wisdom.  Many of the External Arts use physical strength first and then eventually get to the power of the mind.
