Reisebericht von François Chaumont - Songshan Shaolin Yuntai

Reisebericht von François Chaumont

François Chaumont originaire de Belgique. Développeur en informatique de métier, j'ai toujours pensé qu'il me fallait entreprendre quelque chose par moi-même. Également, depuis tout petit, j'ai cette conviction en moi de partir vivre à l'étranger et quitter la Belgique pour de bon. En 2009, au terme d'un voyage touristique en Chine, j'avais trouvé là un endroit où je pouvais me sentir bien et aux opportunités multiples.
Il me fallait en premier lieu apprendre la langue car, bien que mon niveau d'anglais était très correct, cela ne suffit pas pour communiquer en Chine.

Bonjour, je m’appelle Erol’ Je suis le premier francais a m’etre engage au Shaolin Training Centre pour une duree de deux mois. J’ai ete tres bien accueilli par Shi Yanlin, ces trios assistants et tous les stagiaires deja presents sur les lieux.
L’ecole a tres bonne reputation et beneficie de conditions de vie tres acceptables par rapport a celles que l’on peu trouver en Chine (chambers de deux personnes avec sale de bain et possibilite de prendre des douches chaudes) et la vetustee des lieux ne choquera que les personnes habituees a vivres dans de la soie…

Reisebericht von Lupita

When my father purposed me to go to china I thought it was just a big dream that would never come true. My sister was here in the same school 5 years ago and she always told me how great it was but I never thought that I would also be going. I am 15 years old so I just finished my middle school so my parents thought it would be a good moment to take a break and have a new experience. Like one month before leaving my sister talked with me about the school. She made sure I knew that the school is not a hotel so I didn’t expect any kind of luxury. Since childhood I have had a good adaptability to very different situations so it wasn’t very hard for me to adapt to the school.

The first that you havenimpressions or feeling you get when you arrive at the kungfu school isnt even thought exactly what awaits you.
Well the first days go rather slowly as you have to get used to everything it doesnt mather alot if you came prepared for this kind of training or not as at the begining it will seem that you just cant do any of the stuff other people do.

Reisebericht von Wendy

Life at Yun Tai as a foreign student…My first experience training Shaolin Kung Fu under Shi Yan Lin and Yuan Shifu was in my late twenties. In England I had trained in kickboxing and boxing but I had no experience of kung fu and couldn’t speak any Chinese. The first two weeks were really tough! Overtime however, my fitness, endurance, strength, flexibility and kung fu skills started to improve. With the encouragement of the other international students and my teacher I no longer felt like the ‘new person’ and was able to help others as they had helped me when I first arrived. The Chinese language lessons at the school really helped me to improve my communication skills and to be able to talk to locals at the nearby town and city. I even featured in a Chinese TV documentary about foreigners who came to train Shaolin Kung Fu in China!

Reisebericht von Jonas Foglszinger

Mein Name ist Jonas Foglszinger und ich bin 19 Jahre alt. Dass ich nach China gehen und Kung Fu trainieren würde, war für mich schon seit längerem klar. Die letzten zwei Jahre meiner Schulzeit verbrachte ich also auch damit mir eine passende Schule herauszusuchen. Als beste Anlaufstelle dafür empfand ich, wie die meisten anderen auch, das Internet. Nachdem ich mir mehrere Schulen bzw. ihre Webseiten angesehen hatte, entschied ich mich für die Yuntai Mountain International Culture and Martial arts School.
