Overall Rating

Generally this school has had its ups and downs. It used to be the place in Yantai for serious martial arts students. However, much of that depended on the masters teaching at the school as well as the students who would regularly attend and choose this school over Kunyu Shan. Over the years however many of the masters that helped to build this schools reputation have left or opened their own schools. If you'd like to attend this school or would like to know more. I would suggest you contact StudyMartialArts.Org and let them contact the school on your behalf. They are more likely to get quality information on the masters and facilities than would be got by contacting the school direct.
