SHIYAN, Hubei - On a sweltering afternoon, a group of Europeans in traditional white Chinese shirts and dark baggy pants sit in a big circle on a lawn meditating. After about half an hour, they start to practice tai chi in pairs, pushing each other's hands.
They are from the Wudang Five Dragons Tai Chi School in the Wudang Mountains, Central China's Hubei province.
The Five Dragon Temple is the oldest daoist temple at Mt. Wudang. The temple was built in honour of Zhen Wu 真武 - "The True Warrior", who lived in the mountain and overcame after 42 years of cultivation the reign of the five dragons.
