Founder of Wuji Pure Space – Glen Jenkins

Welcome to Wuji Pure Space
We offer authentic training in all aspects of the internal arts, primarily for health, energy and well-being and secondarily for martial arts and meditation.
Our training focuses on the essence of the internal arts of Qigong and Tai Chi . Training the essence is to create one function, that has many uses, rather than hundreds of techniques.
Wuji training produces effective movement through correct body structure, and uses the mind’s intention (Yi) to connect and develop the human spirit.
Why is our company called Wuji Pure Space?
Wuji is a Chinese word meaning ‘ the ultimate of nothingness ‘ and could be described as pure space. We use it in the name of our company as our practice is to develop us towards and connect us into pure space – Wuji.
Each individual may have their own unique experiences of this but often people describe feeling:
– ‘Being in the ‘now’ or ‘present’
– Calm and Relaxed
– Connectedness with their true inner self and others
– Sense of no boundaries, limitless, stillness
People derive different individual benefits from being in a pure space. Most often these are reported as:
– Improved health and well-being
– Better able to manage stress
– Ease of movement
– Feeling of being grounded
– Increased energy levels
The arts we practice at Wuji Pure Space
Qigong – translates as ‘energy work’ and is an exercise of learning to control internal movement or ‘Qi’ (life force) within the body, promoting health, spirituality and martial arts training. It is an holistic system upon which practice typically involves static posture or slow flowing movement, deep rhythmic breathing, and a calm meditative state of mind.
Tai Chi – is an internal martial art based on a concept of 13 postures, which develops physical and mental skills to help acquire improved health, energy and well-being. The term Tai Chi refers to the philosophy of the forces of yin and yang related to the moves, and is a subtle blend of the most refined medical, meditative and martial knowledge combining self-discipline, graceful movement and effortless power.
