Yu Kung Fu Martial Arts is an all inclusive training facility offering Shaolin basics and forms, acrobatics, Qigong and meditation, and Sanda kickboxing.
Master Yu ZhiChao is the 34th generation Shaolin monk of the Shaolin Temple and the member of the temple's international performance group. He is the founder and headmaster of Yu Kung Fu Martial Arts Academy. Headmaster Yu ZhiChao began full-time martial arts training at the age of eight. He then was accepted into the Songshan Shaolin Temple in Henan Province to begin his life-long journey as a Shaolin disciple. By 2014, he had achieved a sixth band rank within the Shaolin Temple, the level of master, and began to expand his teaching experience to foreign students.

"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.
