Medium Stay Packages At The Kung Fu Retreat

6 months.

A 6 month stay gives time for serious improvement.  It is long enough to make a serious change in mind, body and spirit.  It is also the minimum length of stay required to gain an instructor’s qualification.  You will be able to learn the staff and broadsword and at least one other weapon from the Shaolin art.  You can expect to pass the fourth grading (examination) of the Tiger – Crane Art.  If you are so minded, you should be ready to compete in Chinese boxing.  You will learn:

  • Sum Chien (3 wars) – the famous Shaolin internal strength routine, including deeper aspects including breathing techniques, the use of your eyes and training of the senses, including the 6th sense! In six months you should properly be getting to grips with the training of Sum Chien, developing a good level of Shaolin internal strength and starting to show some serious muscle! (video)
  • The Tong Ling Chi Kung routine for health, relaxation and energy – to a very good level of competence. (video)
  • Bodhidharma’s Vein Tendon Chi Kung for tendon power.
  • The full Sun Frost White Crane Internal routine and the walking meditation.  (video).
  • A variety of effective, hard hitting techniques for practical self defence and the power to deliver them.
  • Chinese Boxing to a level where you can enter competition.
  • Pushing hands: and sticky hands – old school drills for fighting with Shaolin kung fu.
  • A variety of meditations and the ability to go deeper into meditation and hold your concentration.
  • The Shaolin staff  and Tan Tow (broadsword) routines plus another weapon of your choice.
  • Takedowns – ways to put someone on the floor by tripping, sweeping or throwing.

You can expect to:

  • Make large gains in health and fitness.
  • Significantly enhance the flow of Chi (energy) in your body.
  • Develop the Shaolin internal strength with which you can deliver truly devastating blows.
  • Feel a great deal more confident and able to handle confrontations effectively.
  • Develop a lean, muscular body.
  • Develop calmness, self control and heightened awareness.
  • Improve your flexibility, probably to a very significant extent.
  • Completely de-tox your body.
  • Enjoy your self.
