Coronavirus outbreak at Shaolin Temple Yunnan

SAMUEL BANCROFT

The shifus are all very skilled and attentive to every student’s needs. The program is very diverse – we learn a variety of different styles, including Shaolin, Qigong, Taichi and Meihua. The culture/medicine classes are informative and discussion is encouraged. The training itself is hard, but also very rewarding. I found my body on fire in the first week, but as time went on the training was improved me in ways I could never have imagined. My strength, stamina, flexibility and balance all improved under the shifus’ watchful guidance. I was present during the coronavirus outbreak and I was very impressed by how Yan Jun Shifu made sure to put our safety first. The temple was quickly put into quarantine (despite us being nowhere close to the epicenter of the virus, Wuhan) and we followed strict procedures to keep us all safe from infection. The training was also changed, we focused a lot on softer styles, qigong and taichi specifically to focus more on building chi and improving our immune systems, rather than putting more strain on our immune systems and increasing our susceptibility to disease. Overall, I was incredibly impressed by this place and the overall experience.

Life Changing experience at Shaolin Temple Yunnan

Life changing experience ! I loved the training and all the different martial art techniques. The instructors are incredibly competent, kind and patient. Instructors push you to your potential. ( i can see my abs again, yay). I think iam the fittest ive been in years in just 3 weeks ! There is no limit on age just have the right attitude. Instructors and students make it feel like a family and everyone’s supporting each other. Students are unique each bringing positive energy to the temple. Food is better than expected, healthy and tasty. Accommodation is basic as expected but does the job and has everything you need eg kettle, washing machine, beds etc Monks are very friendly and sweet. Langauge is not a barrier as they have translators to help. Overall brilliant experience and would recommend this place to anyone who is open and has a good attitude. I would have loved to have stayed longer.

Harmonizing culture experience at Shaolin Temple Yunnan

My experience was better then expected because what I learned has power to transform a person wellness and being. Everything from harmonizing culture into a kung fu environment to the support given when things go wrong. I found the Yunnan Shaolin temple warrior monk training center sincere and dedicated to helping achieve kung fu dreams. They teach best things to eat but also the best way to eat these things. What you learn from step to step is advanced through what you learn moving forward. The program and staffing were amazing the ancient town of Kunming and its people were great. I would like to attend again. If you asked me what didn’t I like I would have to answer leaving which was the hardest part. Thank You Yunnan Shaolin warrior monk training center for such a special time.

Skilled martial artists and kind-hearted at Shaolin Temple Yunnan

Wow the temples were beautiful, such a lovely place to train at. And you live on the temple grounds too. There was an option for a private room but I opted for the dorm and I honestly had no problems with it. The beds were bunk beds and you used the top bunk for your belongings. The rooms opened directly onto the temple grounds so there would be tourists walking around right outside the rooms but we just made sure we padlocked the doors if we weren’t nearby. The temperature was perfect for training, not too hot (although you get quite sweaty!) and not too cold. The timetable is very structured so you fall into the routine very quickly. Even in my 2 weeks I got to experience a lot, I still barely scratched the surface though, so if you are serious about kung fu, stay for longer than 2 weeks! Some of the classes were very tough e.g. hard qigong! But the forms felt great to perform. We also trained in tai chi, self-defence and sanda (kickboxing). If you stayed for longer I expect you could also learn weapons. The two shifus were brilliantly skilled martial artists and kind-hearted! The other students were also very helpful. I truly felt immersed in the Shaolin kung fu experience.
