About American Wudang
"I try my best to be in an extreme emptiness of mind;
I try to keep myself in a state of stillness.
From the vigorous growth of all things,
I perceive the way they move in endless cycles.
All things, full of vitality, finally return to their own roots.
Returning to roots means stillness.
Returning to stillness means a return to destiny.
Returning to destiny is known as the law of eternity.
To understand this law is to achieve enlightenment.."
--excerpt from Chapter 16 of the Dao De Jing
American Wudang has been created in order to fulfill the aspirations of patriarchs Jake Pinnick and Ling Ling Cao in bringing a balanced lifestyle to the modern environment. By using a variety of experiences and skills it is the hope that AW will exist as a pivotal point in cultivating change towards a stronger, healthier, softer, and more stable method that will better the physical, mental, and spiritual landscape of all participants.
