The Bajiquan International Training Center is one of the best places in China to learn the martial art of Bajiquan. All the masters at this school are dedicated and trainined primarily in this art. The Masters skills, the Wu family lineage and their knowledge plus the teaching focus on the practical use of the art, the standardised comprehensive cirriculum and the Mengcun facilitiy itself are all huge draws to those wishing to study Bajiquan at the highest level.

The Bajiquan International Training Center simply put is one of the biggest and most famous Bajiquan schools in the world. How students will learn Bajiquan at this school as opposed to some other Shaolin or Wudang based schools which teach a smorgasboard of styles is very different.  

The location of the school in Mengcun on the outskirts of Cangzhou City firmly puts the focus on training. This is because site seeing opportunities in Mengcun and Cangzhou City are limited. With so few distractions for students, it makes the 6 day training regime easy to stick to. This is one reason why the facilities at the school are so good.

Additionally, another benefit of the school is that it can easily cater to both Western and Muslim cultures. This Makes the Bajiquan International Training Center an attractive multicultural choice.
