Taoist Kungfu
Adjust font size:

Accentuating life and abhorring death, Taoism believes that one can achieve immortality through self-cultivation. The Taoists both created and adopted many methods of self-cultivation, such as sitting motionless, concentrating of the mind, promoting the flow of qi, breathing, combining of controlled breathing and physical exercises, and practicing martial arts (Kungfu). Most traditional Chinese methods of health preservation, including qigong, martial arts and traditional Chinese medicine, have links with Taoism. It is said that taijiquan (Chinese shadow boxing) was invented by Zhang Sanfeng, a Taoist priest of Mount Wudang.
