As I began my voyage into the abyss of a far away land. My nerves shot from the anticipation of what was yet to come. Here I stand over weight, smoker, and mentally incompetent to hold a conversation. Yet I was still not willing to give up my childhood dream. After countless emails over a years time, with Lisa the head masters wife. I finally convinced my family to stop freaking out and let me be on my way. At first the training was strenuous. For the first two weeks I was unable to walk. I was in luck, here you are bound to meet people (yes boys and girls are allowed here too train together) who share common goals, and interest. They will be your crutches in the time of need. I know they were when I literally could not walk. Although the training is ruff it gradually becomes easier. You will see results very quickly, mentally and physically. You become faster, stronger, and more flexible. Honestly you get as much in return as you are willing to put in. The masters will break you down, and build you back up. Things you may have thought were out of reach such as breaking a brick with your bare hand, doing a full side split, being able to jump up and side kick someone to the dome(head). All these remarkable things can now be with in the grasp of your finger tips. Here you are guaranteed to improve mentally and physically, or even both! I have met some truly remarkable people that I will never forget, some who will be at my wedding! Some who I will be forever in a pirate crew with! The abilities of the masters left me speechless with out a doubt every time. Now some things you need to know. I was here for all of China’s seasons. Make sure you bring the right clothes for the time period you will arrive. Example; You will be sweating off kilos in the summer bring light clothing. Winter-cold as heck have grandma knit you some awesome holiday sweaters and socks! The food you may need to get use too. Don’t think coming here is going to be Chinese food you get from take out. This is the real deal. We grow, and raise most of what we eat. If you are looking for a experience that you will never forget this is the place for you. It allows you to learn traditional kung fu and Sanda while being in China. I know I will never be the same after this trip.
