Tim (Family group from USA)

I have always wanted to study Kung Fu (and I have always wanted to visit China). China is also very affordable as a place to train. 
(a) I am a lot fitter after 4 weeks here.
(b) I know now I can push myself much harder.
(c) I have a lot to take home and practice and develop. Especially , Taiji which I tried for the first time here and found very beneficial.
(d) More Power! Always!
The masters set very high expectations for effect and our master kept challenging us to always try harder and be better.The translators were all very helpful.I got a lot of help from other students with patterns.

Being 48 years old the training was  hard…perhaps Wednesday afternoon off for those over 40!When not training, I have been showering or sleeping because of the training and heat making me worn out!I have done the Mandarin classes, which are useful.

I also did a little calligraphy (but it is hard if you are here a short time).There has been a good spirit among the students and I have enjoyed mixing with them in the Academy and Yantai.


My son James and Daughters Lauser have loved their time here. For me, if has been an adventure, That I am pleased I have done.The surrounding area is beautiful and nice.
