While the academy takes students of all fitness levels, we recommend taking the time out to build up a base level of fitness in cardio and strength.
The academy offers a complete tailored fitness and training experience to all it's students. This includes fitness preparation before your trip. If you're not sure how to physically prepare, Master Can will personally write a fitness program for you to follow at home.
In China, the main language is Mandarin. It is not necessary to be fluent to come and train with us as our masters know enough English and we have translators on site.
You may want to brush up on the basics if you’re planning to travel around China during your stay here. Knowing how to count, ask for directions or barter are all useful language basics in China.
Nearly 1.2 billion people speak some form of Chinese as their first language (around 16% of the world’s population) so it's a very handy language to learn.
The academy does not organize any of your travel for you and is not liable for any travel arrangements that do not work out. When you apply, the academy will provide you with an invitation letter to help you with the visa process.
We recommend you purchase medical/travel insurance to cover possible injuries (sports injuries), illnesses and home transport from your stay in China.
The academy assumes no responsibility for injuries occurring before, during or after training, while under the academy’s supervision. In many countries martial arts are considered a dangerous sport and and extra fee might occur regarding this matter, you should consult your insurance company, or a professional travel agency before departure from your country.
You can get here a number of ways; by flying into Zhengzhou International airport or by catching a train or a bus to Zhengzhou train or bus stations. The Shaolin Temple in Dengfeng is about 30 km from the academy - 40 minutes by car.
