    "Everyone here has been very nice and fun to train with. I thought Shifu Shi Yan Hao was really cool. Even without translation I could understand him just how he led by example. The training was excellent. The main style the school offers is Shaolin, an external style where you learn mostly forms, with or without weapons. I really enjoyed learning weapon forms, so much fun. In the afternoon you can choose between Sanda and Wing Chun or Wudang, Tai Ji, Qigong and Meditation, the training has helped my hips very much, but I stayed with Sanda. In the beginning I didn't like it, because it takes a while till you get better, but in the end I really loved it. This is something where you can see your improvement and it was great for powering out and my Shifu was very patient, telling me the same things over and over, which I am really thankful for. In the end you can choose and also specialize, we had students just doing Wudang, but I think it is nicer to get a overview and first try all of it a bit. Well, we cannot compare European living standards with Chinese, and I think we should not do so, because we come to China to learn traditional Chinese culture and martial arts. Everybody who is looking for a great Kung Fu experience and would like to engage his/her health is warmly welcome to join our Kung Fu family."

    "I never did Martial Arts before, so why did I go to a Kung Fu School? I am 35 years old and I was getting a bit lazy, doing less sport, etc. It was time to do something about my condition. So I thought why not go to a Kung Fu school? You train from Monday to Friday and the schedule for the week is in my opinion well balanced. The Masters also adapt the training according to each individual student. And suggestions from the students are also always welcome. Everyone was really friendly, hospitable and really, really helpful. Although I didn’t stay for long, I feel like I got good exposure to a variety of Kung Fu styles while I was here. The Sifus were really knowledgeable and patient towards all the students. The translators made the communication barriers a lot easier, the food was great, and everyone was very welcoming. I would definitely recommend training here if you visit China and would love to return someday soon."

    "In my short time here, I have seen students with no previous martial arts experience cope just as well, and sometimes better than those with years' worth. At the end of the day, it comes down to yourself as to whether you can find the motivation within you to make the most out of your stay. This includes getting up extra early for the morning Tai Chi classes even when you are already in some pain and discomfort from the day before, and finding the energy at the end of the day to attend the optional classes on offer. The school is somewhat like home with the added benefit of improving your martial arts skills under the guidance of amazing masters. Every movement the masters make in class demonstrates their prowess in martial arts and their years of experience. With the occasional help of the talented translators, the masters effectively communicate movements and concepts to the students. For anyone thinking of joining the school, I would gladly recommend that they do, as I am sure that you will find it a fulfilling and rewarding experience, especially under the guidance of the masters. I do honestly believe that anyone can manage with this rigorous regime, as long as they are willing to put in the effort and embrace the lifestyle that comes with living here."

    "This was a great learning experience for me. The teachers are patient and flexible, and you will feel that you have personal trainers while you are there. Be open to learning, and flexible. Considering the teacher to student Ratio, you will not find a better place to go and it is a great value in all respects. Simply be prepared to work hard sincerely, but don't be tense. Relax and enjoy yourself!"

    "Tai Chi Chuan is too fast, and because the fight is too fast, it is difficult to find the unique feeling and taste. After a few months of Tai Chi Chuan, the body tends to get slower. I think Tai Chi should have the most suitable speed. Master Xu once said, "To be quiet, boxing doesn't need too much emphasis on the feeling of the body or to feel the body seriously, but should be steadfast. The body is also a part of nature, why insist that every day is "sunny"? From Tai Chi, people can have a more profound understanding of their own heart, and can experience their fusion with nature."

    "I started looking for something to do before university – and I stumbled upon the Taizu Shaolin Kung Fu School. The six weeks I spent at the school were a truly rewarding experience! Training under the school’s masters was excellent and allowed me to develop a good sense for martial arts. I never practiced any martial arts prior to coming to the school. And it turned out that my ability to pick up new movements was not very developed. Yet, the masters were very patient and I felt like I made progress every day – a very satisfying feeling. I was really fond of the school’s diverse array of classes, which allowed me to get to know other martial arts, besides Shaolin Kung Fu. One aspect of the school and life in Taizu I particularly miss today is the routine that defined each week at the school. Getting up early in the morning for Tai Chi, training for other classes, hearing the cooks blow the whistle for breakfast, lunch and dinner – these are some of the routine aspects that helped me put aside my restlessness, that I carried with me from Europe. Training was challenging, but not impossible. The Masters – or Shifus - pushed us all to what we thought were our limits, and then beyond. As a result, I became fitter, stronger and more flexible. By the end of my training, these improvements had also translated into my Kung Fu: I was punching harder and linking my movements together with a kind of fluidity that I didn’t think I was capable of when I started. I want to thank the masters, the people who keep the school up and running and the other students I got to share my time at the school with! I’ll definitely come back at some point in the future!"
