                        You can learn a lot of things in only 3 weeks (or more if you want) ! It was interesting on many levels, and I will change habits on my daily-life thanks to this retreat.

                        "A life-changing experience"

                        I don't really know how to cover this in such a short review, but this retreat was absolutely one of the most wholesome and rejuvenating experiences of my life. Above the facilities and the short time span I spent there, were the amazingly supportive masters and fellow students. I couldn't have asked for a better group of human beings. I will most definitely be back in the future, but for a much longer stay. Thank you, Maling Academy and thank you to the people who guided and helped me throughout my stay!

                        This school was amazing, the quality of Kung fu learnt, the push on your body and mind. Any person training here is lucky due to the knowledge of all the masters. My only regret is I went for weeks rather than months.

                        "Dedicated and passionate training experience"

                        From the start of the booking process to the training, all went very smoothly. I left with lifelong skills and lessons taught by Master Bao who is a master in the arts of Shaolin. In my humble opinion, was extremely patient as it was my first time experiencing tai chi and qi gong, he would explain the philosophy behind every move and how everything is connected from body, mind and environment. This made the training a very intimate experience which allowed me to fully immerse in the arts and the spiritual side of mind body and soul working in total harmony. I've also had the great opportunity to meet amazing practitioners from all over the world, who not only shared their learnings but their life stories. It was never boring at the Ma Ling training academy, the Masters and fellow practitioners were always open for a chat and willing to share, it was indeed a very nice and warm environment to be in a positive environment. The training space is also really ideal to focus, no city buzz and distractions; when practicing, it was so beautiful to feel the sun rise, birds chirping and the windy breeze. I would definitely return and share this experience with friends and family who are looking for a retreat to reset their lives from the hectic city life.

                        I liked everything. In this family run business created very friendly and unique atmosphere of 'home'. Shifu are very helpful and understanding accomodating different levels. Perfect way of spending vacation with kids to become lean and fit in a short time span.

                        "Life enhancing "

                        I like practically everything and everyone. It was an extremely enjoyable stay. My duration may of been short but the more you put in here, the more you get out. The masters here are beyond awesome.

                        Jauffrey Poubil,

                        from Netherland,

                        A lot of people asked me about my time here. Especially new students. Well this is how I experienced it. I just finished my 2 year stay here at the Maling Shaolin Kungfu Academy. When I came here I didn’t had any martial arts experience but I wanted to learn kung fu from the source. My first 2 weeks were really hard I could hardly walk and I still had to do more training. But as time is passing by you notice that your body slowly gets stronger and you are able to do more and more. Listen to the masters they are great and know how to push you!

                        The people you will meet are great and you get to learn people from all over the world and with all one goal in mind. To learn kung fu. I had a amazing time here and experience. The world of kung fu is magical. Doing competitions giving performance. Doing some small trips and seeing China!! I have fallen in love with kung fu and China!

                        Emma Lunde

                        from Norway,

                        Before I came to the school I had no prior experience with martial arts, let alone kung fu. In fact, everyone I know was surprised to hear that I, a shy ballerina-girl, was going all the way from Norway to China to learn martial arts. I even surprised myself. Safe to say the nerves were very present. However, there was nothing to worry about. All the students and the masters created an incredibly welcoming and warm environment. I am still young, but I have never encountered a group of people where everyone is so kind and helpful. Initially I thought 3 months was a long time, but time flew by so fast. I learnt something new every day, and although training was hard and sometimes made me want to hurl up in a ball of pain (that’s you, power stretching) it was so much fun!

                        Even though we had the same classes every week, the training was always varied. And when we thought we wouldn’t be able to walk upstairs after training, the masters made us do 10 more laps. Pushing past our limits was hard, but it made us better and only two weeks in I could already feel and see that I was much stronger. I had such a great experience, and I would without hesitation recommend you to try this school. The academy fits for newbies as well as the more experienced.

                        Wiljan Hendrikx

                        from Netherland,

                        My one month stay at Maling Shaolin Kung Fu Academy was an intense but very rewarding and inspiring experience. Leaving the hassle of daily life behind me and going ‘back-to- basic’ helped me to get to know myself on a different level. The physical and mental challenge of practicing Kung Fu through a varied training schedule really helped me to experience a balance between body and mind that was completely new to me. Kung Fu aims at aligning the two, not only strengthening you physically but also mentally. A rewarding experience! I can definitely recommend going to Maling Shaolin Kung Fu Academy and wish every student the same experience I had. The professional training by skillful Masters, the basic but good school facilities and the encouraging atmosphere among students will make it unforgettable! For me, a month was enough time to get the experiences mentioned above started, but way too little to develop them fully. So be prepared Masters and staff: you might see me back one day.

                        Sarah

                        from Australia,

                        I went to the Maling Shaolin Kungfu for a week over the Christmas/New Year holidays and had no previous experience.

                        Training: They allocated 3-4 classes/day over the weekdays. There was a mix of quality in the classes but was surely challenging and rewarding as I would sleep in between breaks. It could improve on a more formal structure and goal-setting from the Masters, especially from someone who is not as experienced. The training room was spacious but a bit dusty, and was our sometimes our only option if it was too cold outside. They had all the necessary equipment that was required. I achieved what I could do in a week, with some positive changes in my body but I would recommend doing more than 1 week as I just scratched the surface of what I could achieve.

                        Facilities: Room were necessarily basic but they provided an electric blanket and heating due to the -1 degree weather at the time. Wi-Fi connectivity was patchy at times. There is only 1 heated shower in both the female and male bathrooms. There was a leaking pipe in my room that happened in the middle of night which I addressed but not sure if has been rectified.

                        Meals: They provided three meals a day for 4 dishes for around 8 people from a lovely female chef. It sufficed but you needed to be there first to get enough food. There was not much variation in the type of dishes.

                        Atmosphere: The only opportunity I could get to know the other students and Masters was over meals and on the weekend.
