May 4, 2013 - Wǔdāng Shān (Wudang Mountains)

After re-injuring my back doing break falls, I decided to travel south to Wudang with one of my friends from the Academy here in the North. Wudang shan is the birthplace of internal martial arts and daoism as well as the home to many temples. Unfortunately many of the temples are very touristy, but we got to go off the beaten path alot. We stayed at an academy there which specializes in tai chi, daoist sword, and wudang shan style wushu. We went hiking, visited temples and meditated in the mountains.
