LEARN MORE ABOUT THIS EVENT

What is Baji Zhandao? 

Baji Zhandao is the brain child of Grandmaster Chen Fusheng. It is rich in Chinese Martial Arts theory and reality. The internal development is world class and the fighting skills are among the elite of deadly martial arts. Baji is the foundation of Master Chen’s expression of his martial art. Baji itself has a very famous history in China, known as the bodyguard art. The last Emperor of China’s bodyguards where Baji Masters and Mao Zedong continued that tradition choosing 5 Baji Masters to be his personal bodyguards over all other styles in China. Baji has a rich history for winning battles in the past with in China!and also against invaders to China..


 Who is Chen Fusheng? 

Master Chen has had an incredible martial arts journey to any ones standards. His parents passing away at an early age moving into in an orphanage. Learning martial arts in secret from 3 elderly masters. In an emotional interview with master Chen last year, he told us those days in China where very hard, he is the only person who is still alive today because growing up in the orphanage was so tough. He was told by his teachers that if he wanted to eat he must train hard, so from a young age his motivation for martial arts training came from the need to survive. He said he feels fortunate that he was passionate about martial arts as that made it a little easier to endure the hard training. 

Master Chen’s linage. 

There is a saying in China that you are only as good as your linage. Master Chen spent most of his time living with his main Master, Hang de Wang. Master Chen lived and trained by his side until he passed away. Training with Master Hang took place from 2am to 5am, in secret, every morning, since martial arts were illegal at that time. Master Hang’s Master was the vice president of the Chinese Wushu Federation during the Qing Dynasty, which is one of the greatest honours and positions for a Master to achieve at the time.

Fane Hervey began training in Martial Arts when he was 7 years old, but he did not Originally Settle on one Style until he was 18. That Style was Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu (aka Ninjutsu). Fane is currently a Godan (5th degree black belt) in Ninjutsu. His love for Classical and Evolving Martial Arts led him to Taiji Quan and the Russian Martial Art of Systema. These Disciplines drew Fane to Travel to Japan and Russia to learn from the Source of Ninjutsu and Systema (Soke Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi and Mr. Mikhail Ryabko Respectively). It was this Foundation in Training that allowed him to Absorb Master Chen’s Teachings at an Alarming Rate, when he First Visited China. His Obvious Dedication to Kung Fu Impressed Master Chen to the point that, having Waited 10 years to find the Right Students to Teach his Zhandao System, he Decided to Initiate Fane as his First Disciple.


Fane currently teaches regular Weekly Classes in London, UK and is known for his Relentless day to day training.
 
 The Other Benefit of Training with Fane is that he is a Very Highly Qualified & Experienced Exercise Kinesiologist & Physiologist. This means he is able to Optimise your Physical Training in relation to Your Kung Fu. 

Imagine the memories, imagine the stories this is a trip of a life time.....

This year, I wondered whether going to China for only two weeks would be worth it. IT WAS! The amount of knowledge I received from the BJZD camp, including theoretical, trained and that which then integrated into my body, is enormous and exceeded my expectations. I thoroughly enjoyed the training, meeting and working with new Brothers, and re-visiting Master Chen. Fane’s instruction is exceptional. He is an attentive and committed Master. He was generous with sharing information and provided ample guidance on technique. He challenged me beyond my previous capabilities, and in a way that motivated me to succeed. The BJZD system and Fane’s teachings are complete. Each facet of training internal and external facets of the system, for example, Nei Gong, iron-palm conditioning, forms, drills, applications, weapon techniques, etc, are trained each day to facilitate progress and deep learning. I would strongly recommend training with Master Chen and with first disciple Fane.

SMA and, in particular, David’s assistance in making sure that I was looked after is also excellent. He is readily available, able to provide a vast array of information regarding training in a particular context, visa and travel concerns, living and enjoying Beijing, and he is respectful of individual needs and requirements. Again, I would endorse working with David to find the right martial arts training context for your journey.
This was INTENSE!!

This was an amazing experience and I gained not only a huge amount of knowledge from Fanes excellent tuition but also a much fitter body as well as a much calmer mind. The other students were awesome and through the constant family atmosphere I am confident in saying that I have gained several new brothers and a new sister. David was excellent all through the trip, willing to help with anything he could help with and happy to meet on the weekends to hang out and get any feedback anyone had to give him as well as enjoying a night on the town. This is definitely an experience that I would repeat and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for some intensity and a truly extraordinary life experience.
