Internal Martial Arts

What are the Internal Arts? The Internal Arts constitute an ancient practice that unites the mind, body, and spirit into full focus. A practitioner may arrive at an understanding of total presence in their body after years of sweat and dedication. The human body is a perfectly connected structure that cannot be separated into parts. Although we can conceptualize its unique features, we cannot actually take it apart and put it back together again like the components of a car and expect it to function. Of course this is common knowledge, but common speech describes our head, hands, feet, and torso as separate pieces as if they do not depend on each other for functionality and movement.
