Zong Wu Men - Internal Fighting Arts

Zong Wu Men

Internal Fighting Arts

Washington DC / NoVA


Zong Wu Men - a martial arts school founded in Northern Virginia dedicated to promote and teach at its core the traditional internal fighting arts of Gao style Baguazhang and Hebei Xingyiquan.

Classes are taught directly by George Wood, a veteran of more than 20 years of martial arts experience. The emphasis is mainly on Gao style Baguazhang, an art reknowned for its use of a full comprehensive spectrum of principle and practice for the study of traditional fighting arts and the development of the mind and body.

Zong Wu Men seeks to provide traditional training in the physical and mental aspects of the Internal Arts. Training is offered in a wholistic manner, emphasizing the full range of potential training found in these arts - self defense and combat aspects, the hard traditional training, aspects of meditation and mind/body development, internal work, qigong, and the training and balance of the body and mind. Classes will not only provide a good, friendly learning environment for all, but a serious and respectful attitude towards training these traditions.

Yi Zong Ba Gua

The martial traditions of Zhang Zhunfeng as taught by Luo Dexiu worldwide


This site will also serve as a comprehensive resource for the martial arts lineage of my teacher - Luo Dexiu.

Luo Dexiu has researched, developed and refined the martial arts of Baguazhang and Xingyiquan passed down from Zhang Zhunfeng. A veteran of challenges, competition and hard traditional training, he has been practicing and teaching these arts for more than 30 years. In addition, he is also expert in the Chen Panling style of Taijiquan. He is considered one of the foremost experts on these styles in the world.

The name Yi Zong comes from the tradition of Zhang Zhunfeng - it was the generation name given to Zhang Zhunfeng by his teacher, as well as the name of his school of martial arts after arriving in Taiwan. Luo Dexiu's school is called Qian Kun She - or in full, our name is Yi Zong Ba Gua Men Qian Kun She.

To learn about our lineage, as well as find information on instructors and practice groups around the country and around the world, read through this section for more information.
