Life at the school. The everyday life between hard training and having fun during free time.

Life at the Camp - An unforgettable lifetime experience

Thanks to the many years of experience with international students, we try to make their stay as uncomplicated and comfortable as possible.

During the training week, there are breaks in the day between training sessions. Students often appreciate this time for resting, though they may also like to spend it to do their own personal training, meditate, read, go for a walk or listen to music etc.

At the off-day (right now it is on Tuesdays), there is no formal training so students are free to rest, and with the permission of their master leave the school to visit places near by. Students may also ask for a period of holiday if they wish to travel during their stay.

Students occasionally go on trips inside the Yuntai Mountains or have the opportunity to visit the Shaolin Temple in Henan Province. Many sightseeing tours are arranged regularly.

A little insight into the everyday life of our school



A trip to China should be well planned. You can also buy most of the things you will need here in China (probably even cheaper than at your home country), but sometimes it is just better to bring your personal needs to reduce stress situations specially at the beginning of your stay. We have listed some points to help you out. More information at the section: "What to bring with you" (click).


The school has a computer room with internet connection, as well as a Wifi router, that you can use for FREE. So if you would like to bring your own computer/laptop with you, you can connect to out wifi network. There is also an office phone that can be used to receive calls. From the nearest post office, letters to and from foreign countries by airmail may take around a week or two to arrive. Parcels may take a little longer.

The everyday life between hard martial arts training and great cultural exchange



ATM's at the Bank of China can be used to take out money using a card. Cash can also be sent from a foreign country through Western Union. Traveler's cheques can be cashed at a bank such as the Bank of China and but may take a little while to process.

Food and accommodation is included in costs for the school so it is not necessary to spend much extra money whilst training other than for snacks and water, travel and shopping. Students are likely to find that food and many other things are much cheaper to buy in China than in their home country.

There are no required vaccinations for entering China except for the Yellow Fever vaccination if you are arriving from an infected area. It is best to consult a travel clinic in advance of leaving if you wish to have any other vaccinations such as the Hepatitis A vaccine.

In China, local clinics and hospitals are well-equipped and have many western, chinese and combination medicines. In a medical bag, it is convenient to have things like sunscreen, insect repellant, band aids, some cream or ointment for cuts and bruises, something for an upset stomach or nausea, any prescription or allergy medicine and multi-vitamins if taken.

Visitors are not recommended to drink unboiled tap water in China. For training, students either fill up their bottle with pre-boiled water from the school's hot water machine freely or buy boxes of bottled water as they are quite inexpensive.

In traditional Chinese medicine, the practice of Qigong and Tai Chi are considered beneficial and restorative to health.
