Notes

Many martial arts fans already thought about training Shaolin Kung Fu, Tai Chi or Sanda (chinese boxing) with the monks directly in Shaolin. But china isn't an "easy" country for travelling. Most of Chinese people don't understand the English language so the basics of Chinese are elementary, but who wants to learn Chinese only for a short travelling trip of some weeks? Furthermore it is very difficult to organize a shaolin kung fu stay from your country.

Due to many requests of shaolin kung fu trips school master Xie Xu Yong (buddhistic name Shi Yan Lin) of International Kung Fu Training Center offers this fantastic trip:
