Zi Ran - Ming Hui - Wu Wei. Die Grundprinzipien unserer Schule

Martial art is as diverse, comprehensive and profound as life itself. The diversity of the art is so wide and wide that probably a whole life is not enough to learn it all. When we observe, understand and practice its essence, we learn faster.

We take nature itself as a measure and guideline for our movements. From my knowledge and experience I have summarized the most essential and effective techniques and systematically assigned them to each element of nature. Thus they are faster and easier to learn. However, even then the training is still time-consuming and demanding. It requires a lot of patience, self-discipline, will, focus and devotion. Zi Ran Wu Yi Kung Fu is based on simplicity, naturalness, spontaneity and the five elements of nature.

The term Zi Ran can’t really be understood as a combat style, rather more like a guideline and the key principle for this style of martial arts. In Chinese, Zi Ran means literary “by itself” or naturally (Ran) self (Zi). It indicates the natural origin of all things, a pure and clear mind and is the basis of everything we practice. Zi Rán Wŭ Yì Kūng Fū is the subtle art that unites the mind with the technique.

The foundation of our school is the “Zi Ran”. The Chinese word Zì Rán means “natural self”. In my understanding it means the subjective, original self. It’s easy to say but it’s harder to explain.
