Pai Yung Tai Chi
Pai Yung Tai Chi is the third and “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, Iron Palm, to name a few.
Quan Nien Chi Kung is even older than Tai Chi and develops long and regulated breath control with its motions. It comes from nuns who were devoted to the goddess Kwan Nien. It develops peace and tranquility.
Pai Chi Kon includes a variety of different internal disciplines including meditation, “chakra” sound training, the Pai Lum Chinese Tea Ceremony, white lotus flower patterns, 8 triagrams, Buddhist Palm exercises and more.
All three internal arts blended are called Pai Yung Tai Chi. A students who advances through the ranks not only learns these arts, but their self defense applications as well.
