In the Wuzu system, students of all shapes/sizes are taught Qigong exercises and meditation for health then martial arts skill, but above all humanity is the main theme of the teachings.

Shaolin Wuzuquan is an infusion of five great systems (above) and each system I based on a distinct speciality.

a. The hand techniques of Yinyang Peihe (Yingyan White Crane).
b. The footwork techniques of Soo Heng Cheh (Monkey).
c. The dynamic power and body techniques of Lohan (The Immortal).
d. The precision techniques of Taizu (Zhao K'ang Yin).
e. The meditation and development of Chi of Tamo (Bodhidharma).

There are eight principles in the Wuzu system, of these there are four essential basic principles which all students must first learn to master before proceeding to the advanced principles.

It is essential in the application of Wuzu techniques that the four basic principles must be applied in unison so that the opponent can be effectively subdued.
