"My fortnight in Tianmeng "

Each morning the mountains greet me as I start my Taichi session. The natural beautiful surroundings makes it easier for one to get out of bed and train. Learning with like-minded people is an additional motivation and it was also most enjoyable getting to know them. The dedicated Hua shifu is patient and often sets the example on how one should train. Lastly, I found it interesting to learn about Chinese herbs and medicine.

"Wonderful experience to do and redo"

Sincerely, this month spent in The Tianmeng Academy has been a great experience. Firstly, I met very warm students and a very attentive team. The trainings are as we wish, if you want to train hard you can, the masters will encourage you, it is also possible to take rest which is a big plus in my opinion. The shifus have prepared training adapted to our affinities and our abilities.

And Master Gu even though we just met I learned alot from you great explanations and your power and quickness was a great combination. Thank you for everything you guys are great. Great translators and management thanks Emily and David

"One of the best experiences of my life!"

I loved the whole experience, it was certainly a humbling one. The simplicity of my life there was a welcomed change to facing the everyday stresses, which I now refer to first world problems, I had at home. I loved the training, I feel that I learnt a lot in the short time I had there. The food was really nice and there was way more variety than I had expected. My room was more than sufficient and the location of the academy I found to be quite quaint.

"3 months visit to Tianmeng Academy"

It's a nice location away from the hustle bustle of the city in a mountainous valley with some beautiful natural surroundings. The academy is not as beautiful as one might imagine a shaolin school but it is sufficient for training and living quarters are comfortable and private single bedrooms. David, the owner of the school has made some improvements since I arrived and now there is a much bigger indoor training area than once was and a lot more toilets and showers have been added on too which is good. The bathrooms are decent enough and kept clean with western toilets and private shower cubicles, nothing to complain about there. The training is ok and you can learn a lot although depending on how many Sifu's are employed at the academy to the ratio of students you may suffer a lack of personal attention. David wants a good reputation for his academy so he will listen and try to fix anything that you are unhappy with during your stay, you just need to make it clear otherwise a remedy may not be catered for. The two Sifu's that are here currently, Master Wang, and Master Tong are very good and very humble characters you can learn well from. I studied under Master Wang and liked his style of teaching. He will go out of his way to help you learn if you are willing and he is genuinely a good hearted man and very good at what he knows. All in all if you are dedicated and passionate about Kung Fu as I am you can learn a lot in a short time and gain fitness and flexibility.

"A place to feel at home"

One thing that stands out is the brotherhood that exists in the academy. Everyone hepls out one another. The staff are very friendly and the training is good. Shifu makes sure you are looked after well and is a very humble and kind shifu.

Located at the foot of a mountain where there are some stunning views from the top.

The translators are very helpful and they make sure you are enjoying tour stay.

Management are keen to listen to tour concerns and try to address them as best as they can.

Bonus: there is amazing cat ??

"Tianmeng Academy review, Summer 2017"

Training in the mountains in rural China was incredible, and I learnt so much from both Liu Shifu and Wang Shifu who trained me; not just about Kung Fu but about how to be a good person as well. The food tasted good, and if you had any complaints, all you had to do was ask politely and the issue would be addressed. You could train as hard as was suitable for you. It was great to have your own bedroom, which was comfortable and contained furniture. I met many amazing and interesting people from all over the world and have gained friends for life.

I liked the accommodation, the food was fine for me. Some days it was ok, others it was amazingly delicious. I never complained about what I ate or where I lay my head. At this academy the people you meet also make it a great experience, very family friendly environment.

I have all in all had a great time here. I have been here for one month and have learnt a lot of new skills; including tai chi, chi gong, kung fu forms, pole movements, balancing exercises, amazing ways to stretch and gain strength as well as self-defence tactics. I take away with me various practices that I want to continue working on in my daily life and a much stronger and healthier body.

David United Kingdom

Tianmeng Shaolin Kung Fu Academy website

I arrived on 25/03/17 and was unsure of exactly what to expect. I was instantly put at ease - the staff and students I met were friendly and helpful, and I felt like I'd made a good choice. Initially I had booked to stay for a month but ended up staying 2 months, and would have stayed longer if I could! The school is in a beautiful rural location, and has all the necessary amenities.

The Sifus are very knowledgeable and amazing at what they do. If you put the work in and train hard, the more you will benefit. I learnt more than I had expected, including several forms, weapons, and some Plum Blossom Fist. The daily schedule is well laid out and includes various forms of training, including weights, cardio, stretching etc.

I made some amazing friends here, learnt loads, and left feeling fitter, stronger, and more flexible. I enjoyed it so much I am looking to return later in the year!

Tianmeng Academy probably is one of the most international places I have encountered, surrounded by the most un-international surroundings imaginable. It is hidden in an idyllic location surrounded by hills and mountains in the depths of Shandong province. I have made friends for a lifetime, I strengthened body and mind, and managed to get a small glimpse at what Chinese culture is. Definitely to be back.

Nicolai Denmark

Tianmeng Shaolin Kung Fu Academy website

I have stayed here for a little bit more than 4 month in total 1 and a half month last year and 3 month this year.

I am 27 years old and have traveled over most of the world to see different cultures and learn new skills. And I absolutely love Tianmeng academy. I have visit some other schools in china, but remained at Tianmeng. For some simple reasons I will list below. for me it was very important to find the right school before I left my family for 1 year to train. a school that shares the same values as me and also trains me in a correct way.

Everyone Have single rooms here so everyone have the opportunity to be well rested and I general just nice to be able to shut your door, after being around other people all day.

The sifus here actually provides a individual chase by chase training that match your level and creates exactly what I need, my main focus was Taiji and sanda, something that is hard to find in the same place as they are the exact opposite. So here I have a young master who can push me and punch me and a older master who skill fully can guide me and push me to reach my peak within the forms.

I feel like this is my home any problem I have David(the manager) takes care of if it is Buying extra fruits for students sorting out a visa, recommending a restaurant, anything I could imagine. also when accidents have happened it is easy to see that we stick together as one unit and are not on our own in china with their interesting laws and confusing systems.

My fellow students, are good to accommodate new people and I instantly felt welcomed and at ease, everyone trains hard, even people who may have trouble with the physical aspects are taken good care of by both students and shifus. So they fell included and supported. During my stay we have had students who were Muslims, Hindus, Christians and atheist and all live together and have space to be free to believe and be who they are. Something I personally value very high.

All in all I cannot recommend this school enough, it is no a 5 star hotel and we are in china, yes the food is different and yes the living conditions are different. but for students who really want to learn Kungfu and work on them self this is the ideal place to do so. Super excited to be here, and to see what will happen In the next month of my stay!

Alice Austria

Tianmeng Shaolin Kung Fu Academy website

Joining the Tianmeng Academy for one month( from May 1) was one of the best decisions in my life. I wish i could stay longer, because one month is clearly not enough. You don't only learn Kungfu, you also grow by heart. I met a lot of wonderful people here, whom i definitely keep in touch. Lots of love, Alice
