Kung Fu Zen Garden Retreat, an internationally renowned organization for traditional Chinese Kung Fu and Zen Practice, dedicated to the promotion of traditional Chinese culture through Kung Fu and Zen Practice.

The Masters at Kung Fu Zen believe that the ultimate goal of all Kung Fu styles are the same but the path to achieve that goal may differ. Every style has its own methods for each individuals Kung Fu development - there is no superior style only superior practitioners. You must choose the path that suits you best and train until you get an in-depth understanding to reach your spiritual awakening.

Modern understanding has categorized Kung Fu separately into Internal and External styles which goes against the traditional knowledge of Kung Fu. In fact successful Martial Artists have to have both Internal and External training well developed and fused together.

Traditional Chinese Medicine and Kung Fu have always been a part of Chinese traditional culture. TCM is used to treat people’s illness, and Kung Fu practice is used for self healing, maintaining health and prevent illness - hence TCM and Kung Fu are very much linked together.

At Kung Fu Zen Garden Retreat, alongside Kung fu training you can get experience of the external therapy of TCM, including acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping therapy ,etc. On the issue of prevention and treatment of disease, external therapy of TCM coincides with the internal therapy of TCM.

External therapy follows the theory of correspondence between man and universe,and regulates the balance of yin-yang of people by combining idea and physical means. It is secure, convenient and effective, and it’s especially suitable for the persons who are unable to take the medicine.In the environment full of Zen, the combination of external therapy of TCM and traditional Kung Fu practice will give you the opportunity to gain your best physical and mental healthy state.
