Master Qing Chuan Wang
and Wudang Qigong
Wudang Qigong was handed down to Master Qing Chuan Wang
from Master Pei Xirong, the 17th patriarch of the Wudang Dragon Gate Sect. Master Pei studied under the highest abbot Xu Ben Shan who was the 15th patriarch of Wudang Dragon Gate Sect in 1929 when he visited Wudang Mountain with his Xing Yi Quan master, Master Fu Jian Qiu, renown at that time.
Master Pei was the chairman of the Wudang Qigong Research Institute, vice chairman of the Shanghai Qigong Research Institute, and the director of the China Qigong Research Association.
Master Wang was recognized for his high ability in qigong which he inherited from his ancestor, and then became the 18th patriarch in 1980. He was invited to Hawaii in 1992 to teach Wudang Qigong at the recommendation of the Shanghai Health Qigong Association. He modified Wudang Qigong into an unique style that is well-suited for Hawaii. He calls it "Beautiful Heart, Beautiful Spirit Qigong". He continues to be an active qigong healer in Hawaii.
