The way of Dao, the beginning and the end

What is DaoJia?

DaoJia was created to grow and support an online community surrounding the knowledge of Professor Wong’s Dao teachings.

Why DaoJia? We study the system of Dao Jia, Nature Dao. This site will continue to change and evolve as does nature.

The frame work chosen provides an easy-to-use interface simplifying the management and collaboration of a range of content including documents, newsletters and rich media published by the Academy. DaoJia comprises a public web site with information on classes, events and training, and a secure site by invitation for access to the groups study notes.

Tai Ji Quan - a pearl from an ancient tradition of human study.

Tai Ji Quan (Tai Chi) presents a wonderful journey of discovery that serves to raise awareness regarding the human body and natural movement. The basic level will address bad habits that create postural flaws and internal pressures. Only when this is achieved can movement in all life circumstances be performed with maximum efficiency, i.e. without disruption of Qi, vital energy, or blood and lymph circulation throughout the body. When this training reaches a higher standard, it is difficult to suffer ills from the effects of normal ageing.

Tai Ji Quan origins from the study of nature

The style taught has origins from Zhang San Feng, (a Daoist master who lived around 2,500 years ago) and this form engages precepts from the study of nature - Nature Dao. The reason this style follows the Dao (great cycle) is because of the capacity to harmonise Hui and Nei Jin. The flow of meridian Qi is the co-ordinating medium between Hui Jin - external nature i.e. the external environment within which a human being lives, and Nei Jin - the internal nature within a human being. The style of Tai Ji taught has at its core, the ability to co ordinate the internal and external natures of the body in order for each to balance and harmonize with the other. Tai Ji Quan is based upon this kind of fundamental understanding.

Tao Te Ching

The tao that can be described is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be spoken is not the eternal Name.

The nameless is the boundary of Heaven and Earth. The named is the mother of creation.

Freed from desire, you can see the hidden mystery. By having desire, you can only see what is visibly real.

Yet mystery and reality emerge from the same source. This source is called darkness.

Darkness born from darkness. The beginning of all understanding.
