    I am extremely glad to have had the opportunity to book my Kung Fu experience through the Martial arts web. More so that they have referred me to the Songshan Shaolin Wushu Academy. This school is by far the best of all the others I've witnessed at the ancient Shaolin Temple grounds. The school under instruction of a genuine Kung Fu Master, Shifu Shi Yan Jun - 34th generation Shaolin warrior Monk was more tuitional than most. Furthermore it has proper chinese chefs, translators and a grand master. You will find excellent trained students and beginners in the school integrated in a fully structured program. Andi M, the manager, speaks a number of languages, will coordinate your program to your level of fitness and health. My month long stay was pleasant and I cant wait to return in summer.

    I absolutely loved my time in Songshan Shaolin Traditional Wushu Academy. I stayed there for one month and during my time there I made some amazing friends, learned an unbelievable amount and got to do it all in an incredible environment. Shifu thought me so much and not just from Kung Fu, but how to be a better person in general.I can't praise Andi highly enough for organising my entire trip. She remained in constant contact with me and looked after me my entire time I was there. The surroundings you are privileged enough to be in are incredible. I have come back a better, happier person than when I arrived. What I experienced and learned within the school are lessons that will stay with me for the rest of my life and I would recommend this experience to anybody.

    A great place a caring attitude, they have patience and a desire to learn. Thanks to Andi & shifu for all the support and help during this month.

    Songshan Shaolin Wushu Academy website

    In 11 months at this academy I learned way more than I expected. My Kung Fu of course improved a lot but I also learned about the culture of China and of Kung Fu, the spirituality, the discipline and a lot about myself. I understand now why masters learn Kung Fu all their life, because is not only a sport, it’s a way of life. Shifu Yan Jun is a really good master, not only because his Kung Fu is impressive but because he understand the students. He see each student in their true nature and helps them improve their Kung Fu and most importantly, helps them find the true path to be happy. Even if he doesn’t speak English really well, we learned a lot from him because of his character. The Academy is located next to the Shaolin temple and the mountains where Dharma meditated during 9 years. We lived in a really spiritual place, with the peaceful energy from the mountains, the temple, and all the monks resting in the Pagoda Forest.

    The training schedule is very diverse, interesting and inspiring. The daily schedule is perfect, I think. Accommodation and food by far exceeded my expectations. I especially value that Shifu always emphasizes the ‘mental’ aspect /strength in training. Very family-like atmosphere. The location inside the Temple is an exceptional experience. My expectations of the Academy were exceeded in every way!

    Shifu Shi Yan Jun is an expert at not only understanding human behavior and your personal issues but also in communicating with you, heart to heart. He can read what is in your mind and heart. When I came to China I was obese and 42 years old. No chance I will accomplish much my friends told me!But hey, now after more than 16 months of training with Shifu Yan Jun, my life has changed. He forces you to step aside from the situation you got yourself into. He does it so carefully but so effectively and you realize that nothing is the way it is for any reason then you created that for yourself.I learned Shaolin forms and their applications, I do splits and I'm very flexible, I participated at Competitions for Tai Chi Quan and won first place (competing with Chinese as well) but mostly I am in great shape! Have been on TV shows and give Interviews, I learn to cook healthy Chinese food and I'm fluent in Chinese! Shifu's teachings help me always be at my best.

  • D-jay United Kingdom

    Songshan Shaolin Traditional Wushu Academy website

    I choose China because I wanted to try Shaolin Kung Fu since I was very young. My greatest gain is seeing how much I improved over time. All my Shifu influenced me and without their support and guidance I wouldn't improve this much. All my masters made my stay nice and enjoyable. The areas within the Shaolin Academy are very nice and feels very relaxing and peaceful and translators all helped. Shifu also did their best and more.

    I was looking for a Shifu specialized in Sanda. I love to fight and train as hard as I can! I had some Shifu's before. They taught me well but none of them was like my new Shifu, Shi Yan Jun. He is so full of energy and actually willing to spar with me!He is amazing powerful and have an awesome technique and I learn from it very well. The greatest thing is that he was a Sanda Champion in China, so he knows how to fight and have a lot of experience! As well he looks for the balance between hard Sanda training and soft Qigong, Tai Chi to keep the body healthy! It is a pleasure to train with him every day.
