Clear personal objectives and realistic goals for your training

SC CHUA

SINGAPORE
60 YEARS OLD, 2 WEEKS OF TRAINING
As a foreign student, I am amazed at the discipline relating to time for early rise each morning, meals and training during the day as well as in the evening. There is also strong emphasis on personal hygiene. It is very important for any student joining the program to have clear personal objectives and these must be realistic goals as kungfu is really not something that can be learned within short period of time but through discipline, commitment, hardwork and practices over extended period of time. The faster the student gets to understand this, the better will be for them to be happy with their achievements. It should be easy to appreciate this if one consider how long and what each of the shifu has gone through to be in their current situation. Shifu Shi Yanjun is very accomplished and experienced and each student should work with him closely to realise their individual goals and he does take into account the physical and mental conditions, age and agility to learn. Yunnan Shaolin Temple has a long history of more than 800 years and hence the buildings and other amenities are rather old. Students attending programs must adapt to such environmental conditions soonest possible in order for them to be focusing on what’s important. In terms of the training, the strenous stretching exercises are essential to build up power and flexibilty for students. Hence the saying “no pain no gain” and all these making the unique “Yunnan Shaolin Temple Experience”

Sedentary life decided to change that realizing the old Shaolin dream.

ANDRES CURRI

ARGENTINA
38 YEARS OLD, 3 MONTHS OF TRAINING
My experience surpassed any expectations I had. Im a 38 old man, having had a quite sedentary life, decided to change that realizing the old Shaolin dream. I knew that without previous training I was going to suffer to adapt to the intensive training…Fact is I didn’t suffer, I could adjust on my own phase without hurting myself trying to be where I was not. Of course the first week there was some soreness involved, but the most fantastic part was that every morning I felt like new. Maybe because of the good sleep, maybe the balanced food and even do the high energy of the temple, all helped me push forward and awaken my chi. The learning was not limited to forms, which I learnt…and many, but also Shifu’s emphasis was on the philosophy and state of being that one had to cultivate to practice in the right way, something ones learn can be carried for life! The challenge was intense, but I managed to finish it having my heart full of thankfulness to myself for having taking part, to the 3 shifu’s that teach with fun and patience, they are really freaking amazing, no joke! to Andy who helped along the way to reach and in the daily life…. Made life friends from all over, becamed fit and reduced like 8 kilos… 3 months is very little in a the Kung Fu lifestyle, but surely I had a taste of it and will continue at home. Highly recommended, will come back for sure, and no matter the age, everyone is welcome! And the temple, beyond words… Magical!

Every day to be sincere, to be healthy, to live at the moment

When I arrived at the Temple there was a very warm welcome from Manon and Andy. Thanks a lot. From the first minute I feel comfortable. The place here is very nice and calm. What I really appreciated that there were no prejudices. Suddenly I was part of the Family and the team. Amazing. Thank you for that. So, I felt really happy in the Temple. I could write a long letter to say about Shifus. First: THANK YOU SHIFU SHI YANJUN! I think I cannot grab in words what you taught me from my life from you. And I mean not only about the Kung Fu. You showed me every day to be sincere, to be healthy, to live at the moment. You trained me in willpower. I never saw a person before in my life who is so present with everything. The eyes, the body and the Qi. I always will remember you and see you as a big Teacher for life. Thank you. I really liked the life inside the Temple. The monk woman Heng Wu Shifu is really nice. The dorm was perfect, the shower with hot water nice. Enough space, washing machines, toilets, everything ok. I also would like to thank you that I could let my bike inside the Temple. Thank you, Manon for helping me a lot. Thank you, Andi for the talks and the organization. Thank you Shifu Shi Yanjun for everything. Will miss this place.

Kung Fu and Meditation made me curious to learn more

MARCEL FEBER

GERMANY
35 YEARS OLD, 1 MONTH OF TRAINING
I came to the Temple out of curiosity. However, I’m ever more curious now. One month can pass really quickly. The amount of information regarding Kung Fu, meditation and Chinese traditional medicine is pretty high. This trip made me rethink about my life. I really liked the way Shifu help the training. If I have a wish is to go deeper into the knowledge of Kung Fu. Awesome knowledge and patience from Shifu Yanjun. The Temple setting is very beautiful.

Shifu Shi Yanjun student a great and enlightening experience

MEHRDAD NASIRI

IRAN
1 MONTH OF TRAINING
Overall my experience here has been great. I came here with very little knowledge about Kung Fu and leaving with some more knowledge and in better physical condition. Personally, I’m happy that I got to be Shifu Yanjun student and learn from him. I found some of the speeches constructive and necessary for everyone and part of the experience. I very much enjoyed the life in the Temple. After almost 5 months of backpacking around Asia, I was hoping to find a place where I can have a routine, discipline and structure again and this place gave those to me and even more.
