Lindsey Wei

Lindsey’s Wu Shu training began in 2004 at Beijing’s Capitol Sports University for 2 years.  She had a brief but influential 2 month training experience in Deng Feng Shao Lin, near the ShaoLin Temple.  In 2006 she entered the study of internal Wudang and trained full time in China for the next 6 years.  By 2007 she was also immersed in the culture, philosophy and spiritual practices of Daoism, living in a remote Daoist temple with her Master.  In 2008 she began organizing groups of students to train for 1-4 months at a time with her Master Li Song Feng in Wudang and has been taking trips annually ever since.  She is one of the senior instructors under Li Shi Fu of the Five Immortals Temple.

In 2010 she moved to Northern California to start teaching Wudang Gong Fu and Daoism.  She taught adults and children for 3 years at Shugyo Center Cooperative Martial Arts.  She instructed Kung Fu for 2 semesters at Twin Hills Middle School in Sebastopol, as well as an after-school program at BrookHaven School, and a children’s program at Sebastopol Cultural Community Center.  She taught adult classes at her school Wudang White Horse Academy for 2 years and then in the Non-profit studio SHDWBX for 2 years.  In 2017, she transitioned her immersion programs to various mountain venues in California and Oregon, and teaches solely through Wudang White Horse via online courses and in person camps.

Wei is the author of The Valley Spirit —A Female Story of Daoist Cultivation, published by Singing Dragon in 2012. This is an account of her personal journey training in internal martial arts and Daoism under the guidance of an esoteric Daoist Priest at the Five Immortals Temple on White Horse Mountain peak.  She published her second book, Path of the Spiritual Warrior –Life and Teachings of Muay Thai Fighter Pedro Solana, through Purple Cloud Press in 2020.
