    The opportunity to be fully submerged in tradition - a beautiful location and learn form and techniques from an incredibly talented man

    The variation of syllabus - although time was given to practice new parts of our forms, there was also time for variations and new sequences - all so beautifully taught and demonstrated

    Food was plenty - fuelled the body and varied from day to day.

    The schedule catered for all aspects of fitness as well as Martial Arts

      I really appreciate my time here. Unfortunate it was only two weeks, I hope to come back in the future and stay more longer. The mountain around the school is very beautiful and peaceful. The Buddhist temple is amazing. Very nice place to find a peaceful mind.

    • Jay United States

      Dragon Mountain Martial Arts Academy website

      The accommodation was perfect to have one's own toilet. Bathroom was clean and nice in my room. The food was very tasty, not oily, but fresh, and there was enough food for everyone. The training was hard but nice at the same time. The sifus were very kind, always trying their best to make us understand the movement. And because there were not a lot of students, it was like an individual class, just great.

      Master Zhang has a large knowledge of the practice and philosophy of Shaolin Kung Fu. He is also a very patient instructor and a good person. He is also happy to help in

      our free time with going to the pharmacy and other things. Thanks for everything!

    • William Takac New Zealand

      Dragon Mountain Martial Arts Academy website

      My name is William, I was happy to practice Kung Fu (Wing Chun) in the Dragon Mountain Martial Arts Academy for two months. This is really a great place to stay. The

      Academy is special because of the friendly atmosphere and a pleasant natural environment. The translators and staff are always happy to offer you a hand when you need help.

    • Jacy Argentina

      Dragon Mountain Martial Arts Academy website

      Wing Chun techniques and Sanda skills taught by masters of the Dragon Mountain Martial Arts Academy is great. Many friends helped me on my stay here, as well as the translators. I like Rizhao city. Life here is very simple and peaceful. I loved the surroundings. Winter was cold, but beautiful. It has been a nice time here and I will never forget the people I have met.

    • Tuby Chakraborty India

      Dragon Mountain Martial Arts Academy website

      I came here because of master Zhang. I admire his Kung Fu. He can teach me the best Kung Fu. His forms and hard Qi-Gong is the best I have ever seen. I hope to be such kind of person one day. Besides, the environment around the school is also amazing. And Rizhao city is a peaceful and clear city. I like it very much. And I hope to come back again.

    • Frank France

      Dragon Mountain Martial Arts Academy website

      I stayed here for two weeks. The most impressive thing is the rooms and food here is very good. Another surprising thing is the environment. It has beautiful scenery, the sea is very clear, and it’s near the school. Many people go to swim in the sea from all over the country. Of course the main reason I stay here is my Shifu Zhang. He is the best master I have ever seen, not only because of his excellent Kung Fu, but also because of his patience and caring to the students. I decided to come back again and learn Kung Fu from Zhang Shifu.

    • David Kaenzig Switzerland

      Dragon Mountain Martial Arts Academy website

      This school is amazing. I like all the things here including the accommodation, the food, the training, and the surroundings. And it’s very convenient to go buy something and there are shops in the village near the school. We have different classes everyday. And we can also learn some Chinese culture. The people here are very nice, and the headmaster and maser always do something to make everything better.

    • Guez Mathias Isaac Joseph France

      Dragon Mountain Martial Arts Academy website

      I come here with my friend Frank. All the people in this school are very kind to us, especially master Yu and the translators. They can solve all the problems we meet and give us much help. The scenery spots are very beautiful. And the air here is always fresh. I love the life here and also I love the training with master Yu.

    • Stephane mecucci-micucci France

      Dragon Mountain Martial Arts Academy website

      I spent three months at the Dragon Mountain Martial Arts Academy in a peaceful environment of Zhulong Mountain. I must say that it has been a great experience! Masters are impressive and made me go over my limits. I can do things that would have never even dreamed of before. Big thanks to Master Zhang especially, for being such a good man beside an amazing kungfu Master. I also want to talk about accommodation and food; it is very pleasant after a hard day of training to get back in a nice comfortable room with your own toilet and shower (which is not the case in most martial schools in China). One of my favorite thing was to do Qigong up the mountain with a nice sea sight, it made me feel united with mother nature. I understand what the Shiffu was telling us about Kung Fu brothers: living, training, and sharing everything together (even the pain) made me feel like having a new family. Thank you all again and see you soon!
