In 2004, in conjunction with other Martial Arts Masters, Master Longfei Yang originated Xin Wu Men in Mongolia, China. The purposes: to help restore the light of the original philosophy that had permeated and enlivened the martial arts for centuries. And to promote traditional martial arts internationally.
The Meaning of the Phrase Xin Wu Men.
There’s a lot in a name. The word “xin” in Xin Wu Men means “heart” but it also signifies “mind,” because Chinese tradition sometimes locates the mind in the heart.
“Xin,” then, connotes “heart/mind.” “Xin” also contains the meaning: “center.” A richer translation of “Xin” in Xin Wu Men would, therefore, be: “Heart-mind Center.”
“Wu” means “martial arts,” but martial arts that include a sense of “peace.” And “Men” means “Gate.”
So Xin Wu Men is the Gate to Heart/Mind-Centered Martial Arts.
Is Xin Wu Men a New Martial Arts System?
No. “Xin Wu Men” is not a new martial arts system.
It is an approach to traditional martial arts that makes them accessible to people today.
Martial arts is a long, deep river. We invite you to pass through the Gate, and explore the river with us at the Xin Wu Men Martial Arts School.
