(Three weeks training in September)

Synchronicity brought me here where better than China to learn Kungfu! The academy sounded perfect for filling on missing piece for me both with like + work. Having looked at the website. I feel a strong pull to come here. I knew there was much for my soul to gain from the whole experience.
My motivations were many: self-discovery, the routine, environment, food, to challenge myself, to manage my health. Mainly I wanted to learn as much as possible from my master, for whom this has been & is a way of like. I will be teaching Tae Kwon Do & self-defend when I got home. This experiences has been extremely valuable. I now have new techniques and experience to incorporate into my classes.
My passion is to learn more. I realize it is like long learning work so much to discover, within Chinese martial arts and Chinese culture. I have a course (in England) starting in September, where I will learn Taichi and Qigong.
Here the interpreters and students give you a warm welcome and explain how things run, the routine, options etc. My master is very knowledgeable plus his movement effortless, fast and effective. Once I got to know him. I enjoyed his sense of humor and valued the teaching time with him. The training pushes you, so I was glad of optional classes where I could take time to rest instead. Being a type 1 diabetic on Shaolin has been a challenge with training so much + calculating injections with different meals. There was only one session in 3 weeks that was effected which is quite an achievement.
The mountains surrounding kunyu academy are beyond words and add to the peaceful evening air. I had two meditations for students under the night sky. [ Video of our location that is incredibly beautiful]
A truly amazing experience and just what I needed it to be.I would have liked to have been able to speak Chinese as it would have been lovely to speak with My master.
Trained here for one year and half from 2013 to Sep 2014
