Trip Summary

See full itinerary

The term ‘kung fu’, means high achievement in any area of life. When it comes to martial arts it describes the many styles and techniques available for you to learn – from Shaolin kung fu, Wushu and Xingyi to Tai Chi Chuan.

 

Located in Zhenjiang on the South bank of the Yangtze River, in Jiangsu Province, the academy and its stunning temples are a beautiful setting for you to learn kung fu. You will receive intensive training from experienced martial arts masters. It's extremely hard work but ultimately hugely rewarding! Classes are designed to suit your level of expertise - from novice to expert.

 

You’ll find the school just outside Zhenjiang City, hidden behind high walls and tall trees. It’s split into two ancient Daoist Monasteries approximately 2km from each other. The two temples share 1200 years of history; Nan Gong Miao and Runzhou Dao Yuan San Mao Gong are unbeatable locations to learn and practice martial arts. Surrounded by the peaceful natural beauty of Temple life, the friendly Daoist monks add to the tranquility and are always keen to make friends and exchange cultural knowledge.

 

As a student at the kung fu school, in addition to the physical training you will gain an understanding of the historical, physical and mental aspects of martial arts. You will also have the opportunity to learn Mandarin on an informal basis from one of the Academy’s translators which will take you through the basics.

 

Away from the physical demands of martial arts training you will have time to relax and explore your surroundings. Zhenjiang itself has many Buddhist and Daoist temples including the 1500 year old Jin Shan Temple in Jin Shan Hill park and the 1400 year old DingHui Temple on Jiao Shan Hill. And the famous Yangtze river is right on your doorstep.

Destination info

The country we know today as China actually derives from a long line of smaller civilisations dating back six millennia. China’s influence on modern life is nothing short of remarkable having given the world a huge array of inventions such as paper, money, the compass, gunpowder and even pasta. The country is steeped in tradition and ancient practices, many of which can be experienced today at the Martial Arts Academy.

 

China’s rapid development over the last 20 years has helped transform it into a global economic super power, but its historic roots are here to stay. You only have to visit one of the many temples, the Great Wall or the Terracotta Army to see that!

  • Location: Zhenjiang, Jiangsu Province

Martial arts training requires lots of focus, hard work and above all, discipline. And at the kung fu academy there’s roughly 6 hours of training each day. It should come as no surprise that the day starts early with circuit training, running and Qi Gong meditation before breakfast at 7.30am.

 

This is typically followed by an intensive three-hour morning training session, then lunch at midday before starting on the afternoon session. After an evening meal around 6pm, which is simple local food but offers a balanced diet, you are free to rest and recuperate ready for the next day. If you still have some energy though, you might choose to take a lesson in Mandarin.

 

Your specific kung fu training programme will vary depending on the length of your stay, your personal fitness and ability. Focused, hard work can help you achieve a remarkable amount in just a couple of months, however for some it can take weeks to accomplish the correct body alignment for a particular kung fu style but perseverance generally pays off.

Is this trip for you?: 4 to 12 weeks

  • Location: Zhenjiang, Jiangsu Province

Fitness

Although no experience is required, to make it easier for yourself to get started at the Academy, before you arrive you should do some of the following exercises; Squats, Push-ups, Sit-ups, Pull-ups, Bike riding, Swimming, Sprints, Long distance running, Hiking, Gymnastics, Aerobics, Yoga or daily stretching. Participants need to be prepared for early morning starts and full-on physical training for 6 hours a day. Also please be aware during the winter months (December to March) it will be cold in China so be prepared to train in colder temperatures.

 

Training

While this is not a boot camp, it is a serious training academy. Due to the nature of the activities you may return with the trophy bruises to prove it.

 

Cultural differences
In some situations Chinese people can be very direct, open and frank to the point of tactlessness. For some people this may take time to get used to.

 

Level of training

Don‘t expect to be an expert at the end – it takes years to master some of the forms. For short term stays of 1 to 3 months you can expected to increase and improve your health and fitness, learn the basics in whichever style you choose and at least two fist forms. Although you can learn a lot in 1 or 2 months be prepared that it can take weeks just to learn the stances and be able to do them correctly.

 

Gym equipment

While all the gym equipment is fit for purpose, don’t expect it to look like your local gym.

 

Translators

Although there may be a translator in some classes most training will be based on copying the movements of the master leading the class.

 

Running

You’ll need to be prepared to do a fair amount of road running for fitness during your training. Make sure that you bring a good pair of running shoes. 

The martial arts: 4 to 12 weeks

  • Location: Zhenjiang, Jiangsu Province

Martial Arts have existed for thousands of years, with many different forms evolving from regional styles (Northern and Southern) and varying principles such as internal and external. Some people believe there are over 230 forms of boxing/punching alone!

 

This programme gives you the unique opportunity to learn direct from some of the most experienced Masters available.

 

The academy can teach one or several of the different styles and forms of Chinese Martial Arts. You will learn a variety of the traditional forms, however, the longer you stay for the more you can learn.

 

Although you can specify the form of martial art you would like to learn or develop your existing skills in, the availability of the form depends on the number of other students wanting to learn that too and cannot be guaranteed. The most popular forms are Shaolin, Wushu, Sanda, Xingyi and Tai Chi.

 

Chinese Martial Art Forms

Chinese Martial Arts is a term relating to hundreds of styles native to China. Kung Fu & Wushu are the most popular Chinese names used for Chinese Martial Arts. Gong Fu is known in the west as Kung Fu. Wushu literally means Martial Art and both of these terms encompass many styles. In practice the modern sport Wushu is also known as Contemporary Wushu or Modern Wushu.

 

China probably has the longest history of Martial Arts with many distinctive styles, with their own sets of techniques & ideas. Some focus on mimicking animal movements, some focus on harnessing and projecting Qi (Energy), while others just concentrate on competitions & exhibitions.

 

Each style offers a different approach to common problems of self defence, health & self cultivation. Chinese Martial Arts can be split into different categories such as External, Internal, Northern & Southern. Northern Styles are fast with powerful kicks, high jumps & generally more fluid and rapid movements. Southern Styles focus more on strong arm and hand techniques, stable immovable stances & footwork.

 

External includes the hands, eyes, body & stances.

Internal includes the heart, mind, spirit & strength.

 

Chinese Martial Arts training consists of basics, forms applications & weapons. Each style has its own unique training system with a varying emphasis on each of those components.

XingYi Quan

XingYi means Form/Mind, the Form of thousands of things that show outwardly and the heart and the thought of the Mind inwardly.

 

Another of the 3 major internal Chinese Martial Arts, Xingyi’s attack goes straight through the centre, Bagua goes around the centre and Tai chi gives up the centre.

 

Xingyi is based on the Taoist concept that natural forces are composed of 5 elements. This view of nature is related to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). In relationship to the Martial Art principles, each of the 5 elements applies to a specific organ as well as to different energies expressed by the forms of balance, and by the cycles of creating and destroying.

 

Xingyi is characterised by aggressive, seemingly linear movements and explosive power. Xingyi Quan features aggressive shocking attacks and direct footwork. The linear nature of Xingyi hints at both the military origins and the influence of spear technique alluded to in its mythology. Despite its hard, angular appearance, cultivating soft internal strength or Qi is essential to achieving power in Xingyi Quan.

 

The goal of the Xinyi fighter is to reach the opponent quickly and drive powerfully through them in a single burst, this is achieved by coordinating ones body as a single unit and the intense focus of ones Qi.

 

Modern Wushu

Wushu sport is both an exhibition and a full-contact sport derived from traditional Chinese martial arts. Created in the People's Republic of China after 1949, Wushu has spread globally through the International Wushu Federation (IWUF), which holds the World Wushu Championships every two years.

 

Wushu is composed of two disciplines: taolu (forms) and sanda (sparring). The forms are similar to gymnastics and involve martial art patterns and manoeuvres for which competitors are judged and given points according to specific rules. The forms comprise basic movements, stances, kicks, punches, balances, jumps, sweeps and throws based on aggregate categories traditional Chinese martial art style and can be changed for competitions to highlight one's strengths. Competitive forms have time limits that can range from 1 minute, 20 seconds for external styles to over five minutes for internal styles.

Shaolin Kung Fu

The ShaolinSi (Shaolin Monastery) a Buddhist Temple located in Henan province was founded by Indian Buddhist Priest, Bodhidharma (Damo), over 4000 years ago, it is considered to be the oldest Martial Art in the world therefore the root of all Martial Arts.

 

In the early years immediately following the founding of the Shaolin Temple in 495 AD, the first Soldier Monks created a set of eighteen different fighting actions - the original Kung Fu - which utilised all parts of their bodies. These were combined with the use of various weapons made from simple farming tools and were initially a means of providing daily exercise and as a form of meditation. Later they were used as a means of self defence.

 

Northern Shaolin Kung Fu, known as an external Martial Art emphasises long range techniques, quick advances & retreats, wide stances, kicking & leaping techniques, whirling circular blocks, quickness, agility & aggressive attacks. Shaolin Kung Fu, also famous for its amazing hard Qigong performances by Shaolin Monks such as bending a spear on the throat, breaking wooden poles over the body, smashing stones and bricks to pieces with bare hands and standing on 1 finger. There is also Southern Shaolin Temple located in Fujian province which is 6 hours drive from our School.

 

Brazilian Gracie Jiu-jitsu Academy

 

The first Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy opened in the lively Rio de Janeiro in 1925 by Helio Gracie-  and after he developed his own ways to suit his frailty, conquered a type of martial art which focused on  timing, leverage and natural body movements instead of strength, co-ordination and speed. The art now consists of over 600 techniques, and has proven to be a great art for people starting to learn martial arts as it's perfect for complete beginners with no experience.

Any other comments?

What were the highlights of your trip?

The amazing new people I met and the friends that I made. Also, the fantastic nights out we had on weekends. The KTV karaoke bar in Tai Ning was such a fun night and a very interesting experience. Being able to say I was in China learning Kung Fu and I was there for Chinese New Year! How beautiful the location of the school is. This also meant I got a feel for real rural China and a glance of real Chinese culture as the area is not made for tourists, especially not western ones.

Do you have 3 top tips for future travellers?

1. Essentials for you packing list: torch (or you will fall into a ditch or down the many stairs), a sleeping bag if going in winter (I went in Feb) or be prepared to wait until the weekend to buy a blanket fron town, toilet roll (enough until the weekend when you can buy some), a device with wifi so you can keep in touch with home, don't forget your chargers and adaptors! 2. Give it your all in training, expecially the morning circuits! You will ache in the first few days but you get used to it quickly! You will even get used to all the stairs if staying in the shortstay accomodation! Give everything a go and make the most of your time there with training and with socializing etc! It goes by so scarily fast! I wish I coud have stayed longer! 3. Consider the time of year that you are going and check that everything is available! Before I went I knew it was going to be Chinese New year but I did not know that that would have a major impact on the school as most Chinese (including staff at the school) have nearly a month off for the festivities tospend with their families. This meant one of the masters was off and so the class was taught by experienced students and so I only learnt with him in my last few days at the school, also the translator/mandarin teacher was off so I could not learn this and only picked words up from other students (the locals speak no English so it's all part of the experience), also the laundry service was not available which was fine as there was still a washing machine but trying to dry your clothes when it is cold and raining was not ideal...Also check what styles of martial arts are available as when I went there were 3 options, 2 of which were not listed on the site. The options were shoilin, sunstyle and jiu jitsu.

Do you have 3 top tips for future travellers?

1. Make sure you have all your travel details on you at all times when travelling so that if you are unsure of your travel information/insurance you can check. 2. Always have some left over money at the end of your trip in case anything goes wrong on the journey home. 3. Try carrying a local newspaper in the language of the country you are staying in and people with think that you are a lot more aware of the area.
