Wujifa Basic Zhan Zhuang Practice and Models

The other day we recorded a little bit of audio as a senior school brother shares with another on the basic methods and practices or models for correct Zhan Zhuang practice in the Wujifa system. If you have been following this blog for a while then most likely you'll follow right along with what is being shared here. If your new here you might like to follow a couple suggested links starting with a this one Is your stance practice like a dead post?

Wujifa: Basic Models and Concepts is really a podcast with pictures. Hopefully the art work aids in the audio being shared. The information covers good grounded points and suggestion and by that I mean functional means for practice of Zhan Zhuang with in the Wujifa system.

Here is a little somthing from last year June 21, 2009 BasicTips for Zhan Zhuang and the pelvis
"When one simply relaxes more deeply or as one learns to relax the muscles of the lower back and supporting muscles and relax the glutes while practicing stance training then the back can lengthen and the femoral heads of the right and left legs can be allowed to widen. This gives more room for the pelvis to adjust on the hip joints and with the opening/lengthening of the spine “allows” the tailbone or sacrum to shift and drop downward in these practices. This is VERY different than tucking."

Hopefully you have found some of these bits, tips, and talks helpful to your Wujifa and/or Zhan Zuang practices. As always if you have a question feel free to ask. If people like these Podcast Video formats let us know and I will see what I can dig up. Thanks again in advance.


  1. What a gift to share! What a gift to practice.

  2. Thank you for sharing this! Using the visuals you use here and in class helps me stay focused on the kinesthetics of Zhan Zhuang. Very grounded!
