Meje’ Oruka/Seven Circles
System and Teachers
Meje’ Oruka or Seven Circles System of Southern/Northern Shaolin Kung Fu Wu Shu & Wu Kung and Qigong Pai is a unique combination of traditional Temple Style Shaolin martial art techniques combined with contemporary, as well as, traditional techniques drawn from a wide range of cultures including Africa, Asia, and India.
This system of martial arts training is based on the movements, interactions and Qi (energy) of various birds, animals, insects, and mythological creatures such as, Crane, Eagle, Monkey, Tiger, Mantis, Snake and Dragon. Within this system, our Tai Chi form is a rendition of a battle between these various creatures, such as crane and snake or monkey and tiger. It is told within a poem of 108 verses. These verses make up the pearls of the dance of Tai Chi, which, has been passed down through generations within a verbal tradition, from those students whom are considered to be an integral part of one family or Pai.
