During this training, you will be accommodated in shared room (two person room) or single room at students’ choice. All rooms have private toilet and hot shower. There are extra mattress and blankets that students can ask for if needed. It is very convenient to live in the temple with free Wi-Fi covering the whole temple area, laundry room with automatic washing machine, etc.
Below is the schedule of the training. Class times change slightly with the seasons. Kungfu Xinglin puts the standard and quality of training in the first place. The training will take place from Monday to Friday.

With master and translator's commentary, you will get a better understanding of Chinese culture during the trips.
Shaolin Kung Fu originates from ancient times that can be traced back to around 1500 years ago. It has preserved more than 700 complete forms that came down the ages. Shaolin Kung Fu is famous for its cultivation of both Chan Buddhism (Chinese Zen) and Kung Fu. It is a peculiar system with a rich practical experience of the Shaolin warrior monks and historical evolution behind.
Benefits of Shaolin Kung Fu include improvement of one's constitution and flexibility, increasing the adaptability to a new environment, cultivating one's mind, getting more motivation in life, and anti-aging. From the experiences of students who had trained at the academy, Kungfu Xinglin can tell that Kung Fu not only made their mind and body stronger but psychologically prepared them for all the new experiences.
The remarkable characteristic of Wing Chun is the “center line” attack theory, which means to attack the center of your opponent’s body. In sparring, you concentrate on your opponent and attack continuously in a straight line, which is the nearest and fastest way. Wing Chun uses “inch force”, a kind of internal force with short, clear, and explosive power.
Based on sparring, Wing Chun moves are resourceful and practical. You hold fist and sink shoulders and arms, in order to protect chest and crotch. Basic steps Zhui Ma and Shan Ma are used to riposte and dodge. The main fist forms in Wing Chun are 36 San Shi (36 different attack and defense moves), Xiao Nian Tou (little ideas), Xun Qiao (seeking bridge), Biao Zhi (quick offensive and defensive skills), and Wooden dummy forms.
As a style of Neijia Fist, Tai Chi absorbs the quintessence of Chinese classical philosophy and traditional Chinese medicine theory, making it a physical and mental exercise emphasizing natural harmony and balance, and spiritual integration and attainment. Tai Chi moves are featured by their relaxation, slowness, coherence, coordination, attentiveness, following an arc to move, and the method of breathing.
The attack skill of Tai Chi is Protector's Strike, which is like “away the rock with water”. Following the principle of yin and yang, Tai Chi achieves a balance in both moves and attack skills using the received force to break up the coming force.
Mainly, there are two styles of Shaolin Qigong: Neigong (soft Qigong) and Waigong (hard Qigong). Qigong helps the vital systems to cope with the impact of stressful and polluted daily environment. If your internal organs function properly, your health will benefit tremendously. You can become more productive when relaxed under pressure. Qigong exercises are designed to enhance the flow of Chi and regulate the internal balance.
Kungfu Xinglin are constantly engaged in providing unique opportunities in motivating character development during training. In order to ensure the teaching quality, every master is supposed to teach five to ten students in his group. Kungfu Xinglin offers individually customized and scientific training plan according to student's training goals and physical conditions.
