Training Styles

Shaolin Kung Fu

Shaolin Kung Fu iis based on the traditional Chinese social culture. It has the practical characteristics of physical fitness and martial arts defense it also contains profound religious culture. The birthplace of Shaolin Kung fu is at the Shaolin Temple at the foot of Wurui Peak, Shaofang Mountain in Henan Province, China.

Bajiquan(Baji)

Bajiquan is a traditional Chinese fighting style known for its direct and powerful striking. It is considered the bodyguard martial arts. Unlike other fighting sports such as kick boxing, Baji does not require strong physical preparation even though it can turn into a very deadly style of martial arts if practiced at its highest level and with proper physical conditioning.

Wing Chun

Wing Chun is a Chinese martial arts form of self-defense utilizing both striking and grappling while specializing in close-range combat. According to legend, Wing Chun was created by a Buddhist named Nun Ng Mui, who was a master of Shaolin Kung Fu. Using her martial arts training and personal experience, she synthesized a compact form of Kung fu to exploit weaknesses in the other combat styles and give an advantage to smaller fighters like herself.

Taijiquan(Taiji)

Taijiquan is an ancient Chinese form of exercise originally created as a fighting art. It was founded by a Taoist Monk named Zhang San Feng. It’s origins date back over 700 years, some say even up to 1,500 years. Although Taiji was originally a Martial Arts style, it is mainly practiced today as an excellent form of exercise with many health benefits.

QiGong

Qigong is an umbrella term for a variety of ancient Chinese healing arts, all of which focus on cultivating the Qi, or internal energy, especially for health, vitality, and longevity. The most important thing you need to know about Qigong is that it works wonders for self healing. The concept of Qigong dates back to 5000 BCE, however the practice itself has not been lost and is practiced to this day.

Sanda

Sanda is a Chinese self-defense system and a combat sport. It is a system of unarmed combat that was designed by the Chinese Elite Forces based upon their intense study of Chinese traditional martial arts such as Kung fu, Shuai Jiao, Chin Na and modern hand-to-hand combat philosophy to develop a realistic system of unarmed fighting for the Chinese military. Sanda employs all parts of the body as anatomical weapons to attack and counter with.

Location

One of the many advantages of living and training on top of a mountain is the view of both the sunrise and the sunset. Each sunrise and sunset is different from the previous day and the following day. We experience all four seasons to it’s fullest and all fours season are beautiful in their own way. A couple of meters from our academy we have the Yehe Ancient Castle full of rich history about the Yehe Manchu family and the Qing Dynasty. Located behind the academy there is a ski resort that is open to the public in the winter. Also, located behind the Yehe Ancient Castle is a lake where you’re able to ice skate, fish and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Take advantage of not only the training we provide but our beautiful surroundings all year round.

Food

The cooking is of course Chinese style.

The nutrition is enough to satisfy the requirements of the hardworking students. The water is clean and safe for human consumption but we also provide a water purifier as an extra precaution.

In the morning, the academy provides a loaf of bread and two eggs. For lunch and dinner, we serve Chinese dishes including at least one meat dish, one egg dish, one vegetable dish, fried chips, rice and occasionally soup. There is always enough food for the amount of foreign students we currently have training.

On wednesdays we have noodles in the morning and soup in the evening. The cook will provide chilies for those who would like some. The academy also caters to vegetarians. There are big feasts at festivals when students and masters eat together.

The following meals are included:

  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Dinner

The following dietary requirement(s) are served and/or catered for:

  • Vegetarian
