What to bring with you when coming to China for training

Here are a few examples of things that you should bring to your training trip



This is not a complete list but it might help you when packing your suitcase.
First, do not forget to bring some passport photos for registration at the school and the local police office.

For training in summer it is good to have loose trousers or shorts and a couple of T-shirts with you. For winter some additional warm sweaters for training and free time, a warm jacket as well as thermal underwear or a track suit are recommended.

It will be useful to have a pair of running shoes for jogging and stamina training. For regular training students usually wear a type of thin-sole (like Fei Yue shoes, which you can buy here) trainers that can be bought easily after arriving.

Further you should bring basic and personal medical equipment with you and other special items you may need from your home.

Don't forget that most of the stuff you will need can also be bought in the nearest town or in the academy's little shop. If you pack your suitcase by keeping in mind that this is a Kung Fu training school and not a holiday camp or a five star hotel, you might have everything you need.

In summary:

  • running Shoes
  • T-Shirts
  • Enough Underwear (possibly thermal underwear)
  • Loose pants or shorts
  • If necessary, joint protectors, if any needed
  • Jackets and warm sweaters (just for the winter period)


Things to buy when you are in China

It is worth noting that things like Washing powder, soap and toilet paper are not included in the monthly fee (this is the general standard in China), however they are cheap to buy and readily available in the nearby village/town and in the schools shop.

Personal things and home comforts

China has lots of shopping opportunities, however some things may not be available to buy or may be hard to find. There are international stores in Zhengzhou, where lots of western food, etc. can be found.
