Wuji and taiji are inseparable, yet the 13 postures are seldom called wujiquan while often called taijiquan. Wu is void while tai is full, like two sides of one coin one cannot be without the other.
This blog is to encompass this unity and provide expression of the less well known aspects of non-western Martial Arts.

As far as my own practice, I would rather this be called Wujiquan than Taijiquan, the latter tends to be very poorly translated in the west while the former still conveys the subtle aspects that are at the core of Taoist philosophy and martial arts related to such philosophy.

I also wish to demonstrate the relationship of Taoist and Buddhist martial arts and spiritual traditions with the Vedic traditions. I also seek to illustrate that these and other traditions are an important part of our global heritage and not restricted in their relevance to any particular skin color, family line or caste, religious affiliation or global region.
