2023 Spring Teacher Intensives Training


Xuan Ju Daoist Center (Francestown, NH)


April 4 to May 31, 2023


The two-month Spring Teacher Intensives Training will train you in the area you wish to pursue the studies of Wudang healing arts. The curriculum includes Neija Quan (Internal Arts) of Taiji Quan, Bagua Zhang, Xingyi Quan; and Qigong, Wudang Kung Fu forms in empty hands and weaponry. Five hours a day, five days a week of personal training with Master Zhou.   

Intensive in-person training has been proven to make a deep mark on students’ journeys. The immersion is profoundly lasting and widens how students see their role as martial artists and teachers. 

While we recognize the merit of training for a full two-month in our program, we also realize that students have different work and family schedules. So, the program accommodates students with limited time and those with varied budgets with choices of two-month, one-month, two-week, and one-week training. With the training continuum in mind, the students can learn as their schedules allow them. Most of Shifu’s teachers in training come back to Xuan Ju every year to continue their studies.  

Is this for me?

This two-month course is ideal for students with a martial arts background in any discipline, Wudang students who have trained in China, preparing to be bonafide Wudang Instructors, and new students who have accelerated learning in mind. Master Zhou welcomes any student, regardless of age, sex, religion, or political affiliation, with the heart to learn earnestly, share our values, and are willing to work hard to achieve their goals in their martial arts training.
