What is Calligraphy Elbow?

Calligraphy Elbow is a wellbeing and self-defense system taught by Master Zhen Hua Yang to females only.

Developed by Master Yang it is based upon two separate areas:
1. Movement that pivots on a Ying/Yang 3-D Energy Ball within the Dantian.
2. The fluid and linked motion of unbroken, Chinese calligraphy writing.

The linking of these elbows is artistic in nature, looking like you are sculpting or painting. Yet it gives exceptional results for female practitioners due to the sharp and heavy nature of elbowing and the base-power behind their delivery.

    Learn from an authentic Master

    Master Zhen Hua Yang is the creator of a Nei Gong type of method called Calligraphy Health. He is an energy expert, health expert and martial artist with more than 50 years of experience. 

    Master Yang started his own training when he was only 2 years old. His first teachers other than his grandfather and father, who were also Masters, were the martial arts and energy Masters from the Shaolin and Wudang Temples: Hai Deng from Shaolin, famous for his one-finger stand, and a Daoist monk from Wudang who taught Master Yang about Yinyang balance, Qi/energy and human longevity. Master Yang’s knowledge is steeped in ancient internal systems and techniques, his teachers’ influence as well as personal experiences and realisations.  

    In 2008, a spiritual awakening called Master Yang to teach people health, compassion and wellbeing. Since then the transmission of these ancient teachings has become his main life purpose and passion. It took him 16 years of development and a whole life of experience to form a special Nei Gong system that he called Calligraphy Health. Calligraphy Health is a path to longevity, health and wellbeing. Master Yang’s purpose is to see people smile.

    What the students say

    Calligraphy Health takes your wellbeing to the next level. It is a deep practice that heals and simply makes you feel wonderful. I call it meditation in movement, bringing bliss to mind, body and soul.

    Simone Dole, Australia

    I was one of Master’s first students at his studio in Sydney. Sleep-deprived and totally lacking in energy after the birth of my second child, I found the practice soothing and deeply healing. It connected me back to my old self. My background in psychology has given me an understanding of how stress, anxiety, chronic fatigue, low self-esteem all stem from a lack of connection to self. Thank you, Master Yang!

    Van Truong, Australia

    Calligraphy Health taught me to slow down, to connect with myself and to heal emotional trauma. The speed of my life changed and I have started to enjoy and find my passion for life. Thank you, Master Yang, for helping me to understand on a deep level respect, peace and harmony.

    Martina Zatkova, Slovakia

    When my Dad died I was overwhelmed by the emotional baggage that came up and found it hard to deal with. Calligraphy Health allowed me to be with difficult emotions, to experience them at my own pace. Regular practice allows me to achieve a sense of true happiness – one that does not come from emotions or external conditions, but from within us. I love this state of deep calmness, grounding and a sense of inner joy.

    Mariola Madej, Poland

    I have trained with Master yang for nearly 13yrs, his system is both life changing and enhancing. I am extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to train with Master Yang and highly recommend his system to everyone. Thank you, Master Yang!
