"Intro to Kungfu"

As a 38 year old with no formal training in kungfu, other than a bit kickboxing in my younger years, I was a little nervous about what to expect here. Within my first training session, it was clear that Master Yu takes the time to determine each student's skill set and learning style and teaches them accordingly. I never felt uncomfortable that i couldn't do flips or kicks like the younger students and I was always challenged to improve. I have since returned home fitter and stronger than I've been in years. Master Yu knows how to get the best out of every student and it was an honour to be taught by him.

You will only eat traditional chinese food here which is absolutely delicious. It's nothing like the chinese food we get back home. It's just healthy seasonal produce that is guaranteed to fill you up and keep your strength up during training.

The location was great. It will give you a taste of the rural lifestyle while still being a short bus ride into the next major city if you want to do some shopping or see a movie over the weekend.

The thing that made this place so special for me, aside from Master Yu's teaching, was the other students. The students here are passionate about Kungfu and will always encourage you in learning new skills, regardless of your level.

I can't recommend this place highly enough, whether you want to stay for a quick week or a year or two, it's worth it.

Cracking food, warm showers, a Master who just gets it and knows what the body can do.

We'll go away, integrate, train and come back when we're ready for more tuning and advanced forms.

Thanks to all we met. A nice group of fellow students.

Initially, when I came to China, I only wanted to learn some cool flips, and get super fit. To which, I assumed any Shaolin school could do.

However, Shaolin schools are very popular with the Chinese population. And kids are sent to them at a young age. As a Westerner, telling the Master of a 20,000 student school, that your passion is doing only cool flips, proves a rather stupid endeavour.

When I initially emailed the team at Yu Kung Fu. We had a chat, and they had no issue helping me achieve my goals by tailoring classes to meet my requests, keeping me accountable and training with me 1 to 1.

To which, in a month, I have learnt some new flips. But also an appreciation for the Shaolin Tradition in its entirety.

I write this now, at the end of my training, travelling into the Chinese mountains. (Which the Yu Kung Fu team helped me book).

I am very impressed with the culture and the team.

If you were like me (on the verge of trying a martial arts school). Whether Yu Kung Fu is at the top of your list or the bottom. It is worth emailing them to determine your own study.

Yu Kung Fu offers highly personalised and dedicated training, a brilliant atmosphere, and a very helpful team who will make your experience as smooth and stress free as possible, whether it’s your first time or you are an experienced traveller/martial artist.

The growth one can achieve here is exceptional, due to the attentiveness and effectiveness of Master Yu’s teaching methods. We train hard here, harder than anywhere I’ve trained before; but the results speak for themselves as we have all improved and been able to achieve our goals.

It’s been awesome to watch people arrive with different and varied goals and be able to achieve them during their time here.

I can highly recommend Yu Kung Fu for anyone from beginners to advanced martial artists!
