Internal Martial Arts

Internal Martial ArtsInternal Martial Arts (Nei Jia), as their name implies, focus on modifying and strengthening the internal alignment of the body in the primal everyday actions of standing, breathing and walking.The self-defense and health applications of these arts are built upon harmonizing form, breath, movement and intention in order to cultivate a deep visceral understanding of the power inherent in these most basic activities.

Rather than focusing on techniques and developing muscular strength, speed and athletic prowess, internal arts stress relaxation, mind-intention, stillness and natural movement.The principles inherent in the Nei Jia are completely congruent with the principles of Chinese medicine, its deep understanding of the unified nature of the body, mind and spirit and their connection to the natural world.
