    "I arrived on a weekend at the Qufu Shaolin Kung Fu School and immediately I had the feeling that this was some serious business. Even at the weekend some students were practicing on their own around the school. Kung Fu was in the air, and people would breathe it. The Qufu Shaolin Kung Fu School China conditions for living are OK. You dont have a fancy bed, TV nor A/C, but you have what you need to practice Kung Fu, and thats the most important.I had a little experience on martial arts before, but my Shifu was very nice and really taught me everything, despite all my limitations. Everyone else in the school was also nice. The translators would take care of any problem we had and the environment amongst students was very joyful. Im really glad I made the choice of coming here during my holidays. The schedule is well elaborated and gives the opportunity to learn different Chinese martial arts, which is great to enhance your experience here.Also it is very easy to enjoy the weekends while in here. I had the chance to hop in a trip organized by the Qufu Shaolin Kung Fu School China to Shi Gao mountain, where we had the chance to visit a lot of Chinese nature and culture, and had the opportunity of sleeping in a monastery! I also easily made my own way to Mount Tai (which is a Chinese holy mountain) and to Confucius Temple, Mansion and Mausoleum, in Qufu.I really enjoyed coming here and I hope I can find the time in the future to come back. I definitely recommend the Qufu Shaolin School to anyone interested in martial arts. All I can say is that Im leaving breathing Kung Fu, just as I wanted. Advice for newcomers: if you want to train yourself before coming to the school, focus a big part of that training on stretching. You will definitely need flexibility."

    "Simply put, my past 7 weeks at the Qufu Shaolin Kungfu School have been amazing. Every single day was awesome, and I remember telling myself that at the end of each one. This entire experience has been one of the best of my life. With my master's encouraging word, and help from my classmates, I was able to keep pushing past the pain and train harder. Now, after nearly 2 months, I still get sore, but the pain is manageable.My muscles are stronger and more flexible, and I have grown to enjoy sleeping on a hard mattress. It just took some time to get here. The training itself was awesome. I ended every class feeling great, albeit a bit tired. But not a single class passed that was not amazing. It is amazing to experience happiness and contentment every day of the week, all day long, when being used to the stresses of everyday living and the rat race at home.Waking up at 5:45 every day to practice and learn Tai Chi was an excellent way to start every morning. Even if I woke up exhausted from the previous day's training, which was usually the case, I would feel happy and energized after an hour of Tai Chi. It is definitely something that I will continue to do at home. My master, Zhang Shifu (Master Shi Xing Lin), is a true master in every sense of the word. He is always friendly, calm, and collected.I can tell that he truly loves teaching Shaolin Kung Fu, and that it is his passion. He always came up with new lessons and games to keep us stimulates. I learned so much from him in my 7 weeks here that I don't know where to begin. He spoke often of having virtue and being hardworking, and he really personifies these things.When I first met him, I wondered what if would be like needing a translator in order to communicate. That changed quickly, during my first lesson. A lot of the time, translations were not even needed. Zhang shifu is such a good teacher that I understood his explanations just by his tone, facial expressions and body language. It is really amazing to learn from somebody who possesses such skill and passion.The students here are great, too. It is refreshing to be in a place with all like-minded people. It is easy to make friends, because everybody here shares two things in common: a passion for Kung Fu and a passion for traveling. I made some great friends here from all over the world, and will keep in touch with many of them.These 7 weeks changed me for the better in more ways than I can count. I plan on continuing to practice at home everything that I learned here, and to keep improving my physical and mental well-being. I will always be grateful for this amazing experience, and I will never forget the hard training, the great teachers, and the good friends that all sum up my trip here. "

    "I arrived at the school on the 11th September; it was very hot compared to England which took some time to adjust. Immediately I was welcomed by the friendly students by getting invited to get shown around the local City of Qufu. I declined as I was extremely jet lagged and just wanted to sleep.When the training started on Monday, that's when I felt the most impressed. Impressed by the amount of attention of the masters you get and their expertise in Shaolin Kung Fu. I was also glad the amount of patients the monks have as well and how they are eager to improve their English all the time.There are translators on-site who are very helpful and willing to work around the clock even on weekends. Throughout the week the training is very tiring and your master will push you at your personal limits. At the end of the week you get a good well deserved rest during the weekend where many students go to the City to relax.Most of the students go to the International Youth Hostel to relax on comfy chairs in an air-conditioned room which serves cheap drinks and food. You can also go and see the Confucius historic attractions or even just go and the city and shop. If you don't fancy a rest during the weekends you can also be allowed to go travelling around China which I do recommend as there is a lot to see and do."
