Our Martial Art Styles

At Mater Yun’s Studio we specialize in many different styles of martial arts. This styles are broken down into three categories: Internal, External, and Weapons. We encourage our students to look through each of the categories to understand the differences and complementary aspects of each style.

 

Internal Forms

Known as Neijia (內家), internal forms focus on the mental or qi-related aspects of martial arts. These forms emphasize an awareness of the practitioners’ mind and an extensive training in stances, flexibility, and strength.


External Forms

Chinese external martial art forms often times exhibit extremely fast and powerful movements. These forms are typically among the most recognizable martial art forms today and throughout history.


Weapons Forms

Traditional Chinese weapons can be classified either by the type of weapon or by the martial art schools that incorporate them into their training. There are many different weapons ranging from swords to spears and even ropes.
