Age of Wushu continues its introduction to various schools, following the Beggars, Tangmen, Wanderer's Valley, today Snail Games gives us detail information on another school -- Wudang. Everyone knows schools like the Shaolin Monks by name, but visually the Wudang School is the most recognizable. The founder of Tai Chi, Wudang is home to those dedicated to keeping peace in the world.
The basic idea behind the Wudang School is balance. Visitors of the temple see the Yin Yang symbol etched around the grounds. The Wudang believe that the balance of one's mind and body is essential to the mastery of the martial arts. In combat, they redirect energy used against them, throwing enemies off balance with a punch, or maneuvering thin swords through enemy defenses. 

The skills of the Wudang School in Age of Wushu display this strategy. Swords are the weapon of choice. Whether it is a single or double sword technique, these masters use their weapons as an extension of their mind and body. To them the sword is not a tool, but part of themselves.  The Wudang can shift enemy strength and push chi energy out with a swing of the blade for a ranged attack. Their parries attack the strength of others, rather than absorb blows like the skills of different schools.

The teachings of balance are even apparent in today's Tai Chi practitioners. They believe that achieving perfect evenness leads to a longer and healthier life, by preventing accidents or injuries otherwise caused by cluttered minds and clumsy bodies. Unconfined to rigid patterns the Wudang have a freedom of movement and beliefs unseen in other schools like the Shaolin and Tangmen.
  The iconic stairs leading to the temple are the first step to this balance. While there are not as many steps as one would encounter in real-life (3 hours climbing virtual stairs wasn’t entertaining in focus testing), the in-game school is modeled after the real-life school. Bold green-tiled ceilings and orange buildings fill the grounds, and a giant Yin Yang stage represents balance in the school, as well as training.

The legendary Xuanwu Statue at the front of the school serves as a reminder of strength and a symbol of the good they represent. The image of the Snake and Tortoise has many sources, but most common is the belief that these two beasts are sins of a man that became a god. The former man returned to conquer these evils and make them to serve him as generals for the good of humanity. This monument of triumph is a welcomed sight in one of Age of Wushu’s most honorable schools.
Can you turn the tide of battle on your opponent with the Wudang School or are you content with the blunt strength of other schools?
