Learn Kung Fu In China From Shaolin Monks At An Ancient Shaolin Temple
Always thought about learning Kung Fu but never found your “Master Chifu”, who could hone your superhuman reflexes and lightning-fast moves ?
Here is your chance Panda, we are taking you on a Pilgrimage.
No, Not the religious kind silly.
After our incredible trips to this really special place earlier in 2017, we are going back again in April, May and June 2018 to learn kung fu in China in beautiful pleasant weather.(Check out the amazing photos of our 2017 trips in the photo gallery above) And again, we are taking a few lucky folks with us to the literal home of Kung Fu deep in beautiful mountains, where you will be temporarily inducted as “Shaolin Disciples” and be a part of the legend.
The lives of Shaolin Monks and their training has always been shrouded in mystery and to most, this will remind of the awesome movie, KungFu Panda! But we are talking about the real world and THIS, is really happening.
In April, May and June 2018, we have created an opportunity again for a few people to learn Kung Fu in China for one week or more if you like and to experience a very sacred Shaolin Temple which is like the University of Shaolin Kung Fu, surrounded by gorgeous mountains. This is where KungFu originated 1500 years ago and this is where the legendary Shaolin Monks live!!
In fact, the person who founded Zen Buddhism in China was an Indian by the name Bodhidharma who, also founded Shaolin Kung Fu. He didn’t call his new religion, “Zen,” because that word didn’t exist in China. he just added Kung Fu to his Buddhism. His shrine is on top of a mountain next to the 1500-year-old Shaolin temple where we will be living and training with real warrior Shaolin Monks in the flesh!!
(Check out the amazing photos of our 2017 trips in the photo gallery above)
“But what will we learn from Shaolin Monks there ?”
Obviously, in one week we won’t learn to split bricks into two with our hand. You will, however, LEARN THE BASICS of this mysterious ancient martial arts from true masters. Of course, if you fall in love this amazing ancient martial art, we can arrange for you to stay at the Shaolin Temple for an extended period of time ranging from a month to a even a year if you fancy !!
During our one week trip, we will learn Kung Fu techniques from Warrior Shaolin Monks inside the temple, whilst also exploring Zen Buddhist Meditation that Shaolin Monks practise. You will on a daily basis also train for strength, speed, stamina, impact conditioning and applications with their guidance along with Kung Fu lessons.
This is not just a trip to learn Kung Fu in China, we will also learn about Buddhism, the culture and even other art forms that Shaolin Monks have developed in this area over the centuries.
“But I’ve never done any Martial Arts or Kung Fu Training before ?”
