HIGHLIGHTS

Kung fu School, China was founded by Master Xing Long Wang, 32nd generation disciple of the Shaolin Temple. The school is located in a quiet valley on the outskirts of Siping, in the northern Chinese province of Jilin. The school focuses on developing physical, mental, and spiritual strength. Students of the school can learn Traditional Shaolin Kung Fu, Tai Chi, San Da, Qin-na and Qi Gong, in a disciplined but supportive environment.

Facilities: Both indoor and outdoor training facilities.

Overview

The Kung fu School, China offers Sanda, Shaolin Kung fu and Taichi quan intensive martial arts training. All this is provided by an equally intensive master. Master Wang Xinglong is a 32nd generation disciple of the Shaolin Temple. At the age of 12, he joined the Shaolin Temple and studied traditional Shaolin martial arts under the 31st generation disciple, Master Shi DeQian.

At the school students should expect to train 8 hours each day, five days per week. All skill levels are welcome at the school and each student gets personalised training where Master Wang Xinglong considers your skills, strengths weaknesses, preferences and goals. Progress is solely determined by the effort you put in and your ability to learn and practice the skills.

This school is not one which we would recommend to students who are considering a less intensive martial arts holiday. The school is located on the outskirts of Siping in a quiet, small town in the northern Chinese province of Jilin. As a result there are few distractions and in the autumn and winter months it gets particularly cold.

During my month at the school I felt muscle pain, joint pain, was hit with a staff, was both encouraged and laughed at by an Irishman, Englishman, Mexican and a Swede, and learnt far more than I thought possible in such a short period of time. Eight hours of training a day with Shifu Wang bring out sweat, tears, sometimes a little blood and, occasionally, a scream or two. Shifu encourages his students to push themselves beyond their limits. He gives all of us individual attention and helps us develop and strengthen our body and mind ”together” – he teaches us Kung Fu. An amazingly positive, friendly and relaxed atmosphere makes up for any minor faults in the facility. At the end of my month I feel part of a big family of stray martial art nerds from all corners of the world that have found refuge in-the-middle-of-nowhere-China and surrendered themselves to the guidance of a kind, caring, beyond competent Shaolin master. Sounds silly perhaps, but feels true. Already planning my next visit.

I trained with Master Wang for 4 and a half months, learning Kung Fu was one of the greatest experience I have had in my life, even though the training is really hard and challenging you come out a better person from this experience. Shifu is a great teacher who truly cares about his students and is always willing to help what ever the matter is to make this a great experience. During training he requires discipline and that you are fully dedicated to the training but at the same time he is very kind and good hearted person, as a result you will develop your Kung fu skills much faster. I had no earlier experience in martial arts and was not in good shape when I came to this school, he has helped me change that a lot. I have learned not only Kung Fu but also a lot about myself, I’ve learned that I am capable of doing things I never imagined I could do and have been forced to work on my weaknesses. Being here in China has been really life changing and this is definitely a good experience, even though it can be really hard at times it is something that I fully recommend other people to do.

Rewarding. When I think of my seven months in China training with Master Wang , the thought that sums it up, the one I keep returning to boils down to that word: Rewarding. I went to the Academy with a vague idea of what to expect because my brother trained under Master Wang two years ago– his journey and results inspired me to improve my own life by undertaking this challenge. I wanted to change myself for the better– and for me, there was no better place to do it than with Sifu and the other students at the school, who are supportive and always ready to help a newcomer to martial arts as long as the DESIRE to improve is in you. My brother studied under Sifu for about five months. When he came back he was a different person, and I say that in the best possible sense of the phrase. He had lost about 30 pounds of fat, an awesome feat in itself– but way more important was his conversion from a sit-on-your-heels mentality to the mindset of all-out attack on any obstacles in his life, be they mental, spiritual, or physical. I will never forget his dramatic transformation as long as I live. THAT is primarily what I wanted for myself.

In the past I studied under Wang Shifu at another school and was very pleased to learn that he had started a school of his own, successfully operating it for over a year now. Shaolin kung fu is big business in China, so many masters will promise you the world, but from my experience few deliver on all the hype. Wang Shifu is an authentic 7th band Shaolin Master who can trace his lineage back to his Shaolin Temple roots. I’ve trained with a handful of Shaolin masters over the years, and made many friends with other kung fu students across China, hand’s down Wang Shifu is one of the best around. Most foreign students training in China who have been there a while will know of him, not only from the high calibre of his teaching, but based on his experience teaching foreigners for 10+ years in many different schools across China. In my view what makes Wang Shifu one of the best is that he takes training to heart, and he takes it seriously — he will push his students to their own limits yet at the same time is cognizant that all students learn at different paces. Whether you are young or old, male or female, caucasian or a minority, he will teach you as an individual and if you are ready he will help you push yourself beyond any limits you thought you had. At the same time he is very humorous and approachable, so gets along with everyone easily

This journey was an amazing experience that I would gladly repeat. Wang Shifu is an amazing teacher and friend, and I am proud to have been taught by him. We not only work on techniques, strength, and flexibility but he also teaches our body and mind to become one. Weaponry is another section he teaches, and during my short stay I was able to learn a few cool staff techniques. I wanted to work on my strength and flexibility and I was able to improve a lot more than I expected. Everyday is a lot of hard work and sometimes I wouldn’t see the results right away but only a few days later so I had to learn to be patient with my body and let it take in all the new things at its own speed. I really loved conditioning classes and hardening the body. In this class we also learn locks and how to get out of locks as well as counter attacks. I enjoyed all of these exercises and Shifu will accommodate the training to your body type, so a short girl like me will sometimes practice different exercises than a tall and stronger man would. This definitely had a positive impact on my body and mind. Thank you Shifu and the rest of the team for this unforgettable journey.

The school is spacious well equipped and very comfortable and it has everything you would expect of a good kung fu school. The food is a high point of the school and Master Wang has made this a very important element in helping to keep the moral and of the students high and the intensity they display while training.

As a Master. Master Wang is extremely motivated and he has a reputation for get the most out of his students. Master Wang speaks English and this enables you to largely train without the need for a translator. He is exceptionally skilled in Sanda (Chinese kickboxing), traditional Shaolin Kung Fu and wrestling.

The school caters to students from all over the world and of all levels and ages providing you want to train especially hard, become fitter, stronger, or amateur or professional fighter. Students who tend to go to the school are generally very highly motivated and disciplined.

The school is located just outside the northern city of Siping and it is rurally situated, providing students with a place to focus fully on training. The area beautiful but cold as it is in the north of China. Typically students sleep two to a room and these rooms are spacious and simple and are furnished with heaters, beds, wardrobes and desks. Hot showers are provided on each floor of the accommodation blocks. Unfortunately or fortunately depending on how you look at, no internet is provided at the school. Students instead can stay intouch with friends and family back home when they visit Siping on their weekends off.

After completing his training at the Shaolin Temple, Master Wang spent many years competing in Sanshou (Chinese kickboxing) tournaments and events where he won many awards, including a high placement in the prestigious “Kungfu King” competition.

He has been teaching Kung Fu to Chinese students since 2001, and to foreign students since 2002.

Training at Kung Fu School China

During your first week of training, Master Wang will evaluate you and develop a training plan that is customized to your skill level and interests. All skill levels are welcome, but a strong foundation is essential to martial arts training for the safety of the students and the ability to progress to advanced levels. Therefore, the basics are stressed and rigorously reviewed and practiced by all students. How quickly you progress through the levels depends on the effort you put into it and your ability to learn specific skills.

Stretching

In addition to the foundational martial arts skills, Master Wang teaches advanced skills in Shaolin Kung Fu, Sanda (Chinese kickboxing), Tai-chi, Qin-na, and Qi-gong. At all levels, the internal (or soft) aspect of Kung Fu is cultivated as well as the external hard forms. This includes learning how to feel and work with your Qi, which is the Chinese term for the energy force that runs through all things and beings. Cultivating and controlling your Qi contributes to improved physical skill, mental health, and nourishes and protects your body to keep you in the best possible health throughout your life.
