Jenson Louis Callejon (UK)
I have always wanted to study martial arts in Asia. I always studied Japanese forms but the idea of training Kungfu in China had always appealed to me. I did some research online and from all the schools i saw i chose Kunyu Mountain Shaolin Martial arts academy China.
When i arrived in Kunyu I was suffering from major depression and had given up on many things in life. It was thanks to the training, staff, students and location that after only 3 months I no longer feel depressed. In addition to my mental recuperation I lost 15kg in the first 3 weeks and feel massively fitter than i did when i arrived and my flexibility has increased drastically: not bad for a 39 year old.
I feel that the biggest influences in my training time in Kunyu was a combination of Shifu Guo, Coach Loc(massive help) and of course my brothers and sisters with whom i have a very strong bond and will be missing a lot when i leave.
I have had an amazing time in the 3 months i have spent in Kunyu academy. Christmas and New year's was a lot of fun and the fact the staff went out of their way to make it special for us made it so much easier to spend it away from home.
Daily life was filled with routine which is what i needed due to my crazy life-style back at home and although it took some getting used it is exactly what i needed. I loved the training in Kunyu, although i have to mention that sometimes it felt that we were too many students and therefore not enough attention could be paid to all of us individually (which is understandable).
Master Guo and Coach Lok have been incredible. Coach Lok is always there to help and Master Guo always has a smile on his face and is ready to help you get better. A big asset to the academy are the translators, they are the first point of contact with students upon arrival in Yantai and therefore this is very important. I have to say that all translators, without exception (but in particular Leila and Ivy) have been amazing; they are always ready to help and always smiling...they are part of the Kunyu experience.
The surroundings of the academy are absolutely beautiful and breathtaking, I have enjoyed daily walks since my arival and will be missing all of it. Although I have not had the pleasure of experience the ake and waterfalls due to it being Winter i havenonetheless been taken by the beauty and majestic views. Yantai city is absolutely incredible and have enjoyed it on various ocasions (as well as Muping)...I hope to return very soon.
