Throughout the Da Xuan tradition we find the idea of 'Ziran', the natural.  We have the concept that within us all is a spark of the universe, a perfect unadulterated reflection of the Tao. 


Through our practices we work to break down the barriers we build between this perfect spark, our true self and the world.  By practising we can free this perfection within us, allowing it to express naturally and spontaneously.


Ziranmen, the natural boxing, is the famous fighting art transmitted from the legendary Du Xin Wu.  Famous for his work as a bodyguard to the first president of the Republic of China, Du Xin Wu transmitted his art to several notable students, most notably Wan Lai Shen (pictured).


The Ziranmen practices develop qualities and concepts for fighting in the place of structured forms or techniques, with a focus on power, spontaneity and the capacity to act.
