The Meng's Martial Arts philosophy emphasizes that martial arts are not just techniques for fighting, but rather a way to reconcile the world and bring humanity together as one family. The true secret of martial arts lies in harmonizing oneself with the movement of the universe, which brings one into accord with the universe as a whole and allows for oneness with it.
The ultimate goal is to never be defeated, not because of faster techniques or physical strength, but rather by achieving harmony with the universe. The focus of true martial arts is on purifying the heart, straightening the mind, and harmonizing the body and spirit with the activities of all things in nature. True martial arts are a work of love, with the ultimate goal of giving life to all beings, rather than killing or seeking struggles with one another.When it comes to defending one's life or the lives of loved ones, Meng's Martial Arts emphasizes the importance of using a seamless, uniform system that is in harmony with reality. The goal is to use the right tools at the right place and the right time, rather than relying on hundreds of techniques from multiple styles.
The Shaolin Wing Chun system, which has its origins in the Shaolin Temple, is a complete system that teaches proper body mechanics, tactics, and strategies. In ancient times, warriors were expected to have a complete body of knowledge to operate successfully on the battlefield, and today's modern martial arts community has given rise to a variety of complex and different styles.
However, Meng's Martial Arts believes that having one cohesive system is ultimately more efficient and practical for self-defense. The school also distinguishes between the different martial art activities of personal development/self-improvement, self-defense/combat, health/fitness, sports/competition, and art/entertainment, and tailors its training accordingly. Beyond the physical, Meng's Martial Arts teaches how to use the body's full potential, including thoughts, feelings, and actions, to overcome any challenge in life.
