Four months course from Jan to May 2018.
Name: Jonas Schoellkorf Nationality: SwissFor me the best country for kungfu is China. I wanted to challenge myself and learn how to defend myself as well as learn about my sprits.
Discovered how ancient Kongfu is and that it is a way of life, not only a martial art. I also discovered why it is called an art and loved practicing that part of it.Master Xu is the best master I could have had, it was an honor to learn from him. My roommate Yohann, who arrived at the same time as me, also helped me to keep good habits and I think I helped him too. In my class, I found Krystian and Denis to be really helpful. Seeing Coach Loc work heard at night also motivated me.
I loved the rhythm. The first month was hard for my body but things got better. Food is good and basic. Accommodation is good and basic. I am happy we had time between lunch and afternoon training to sleep. I slept a lot the first 2 months to help my body recover and I am sure that the optional classes of taichi and qigong helped too a lot. Training was well done serious about it but the group was really nice and friendly. I felt like being in a small family with master Xu being the father, strict and fun at the same time. He is so dedicated to his students and shares his experience with us, even if not everybody understands. He knows who is ready to learn more and when and adapts very well his way of teaching. The translators are all very friendly and easy-going, always ready to help at school but also for other things outside of school which is really helpful.It’s perfect I love it but maybe in summer it would be nice to be able to swim somewhere.I didn’t really feel anything bad about the air. Muping is nice for food and be with friends.
