Shaolin Kung Fu Instructor.  

8 month apprentice instructor program.  $8,500 US.

 

Our full Shaolin Warrior syllabus.  This is a fairly demanding course covering very deep martial arts knowledge seldom taught any more.  After an initial training period of 8 months all those who have trained diligently and honoured their responsibilities will be invited to stay for additional training at the very much reduced cost of $375 / month.

 

Introduction.
We believe that our apprentice instructor scheme is the best value course that we offer.

Joining our instructor team is about becoming an inspirational martial artist.

We are passionate about our Kung Fu.  We live, eat and breathe kung fu.  Our association dates back to 1954 – we are dedicated to preserving its traditions and the quality of its arts. 

Nam Yang Puglistic Association is developing into an international Kung Fu community.  Our Retreat in Thailand is now its focal point, its centre of excellence.  It is here that we are training our star students who will preserve our arts for future generations, spread them internationally and inspire others to take up kung fu.  To reach this standard it is necessary to practise full time and live the kung fu lifestyle – 24/7!  Our apprentice instructor scheme is carefully planned to make this a reality. 

Our team here train to the maximum so as to bring their mind body and energy to a peak.  We also emphasise strong character development.  Combining our physical practises with meditation and a study of Chinese philosophy enables us to develop our consciousness and personal effectiveness so as to become leaders and motivators. 

We are working very hard to create opportunities for our people to earn enough money so as to satisfy here indefinitely should they choose to and develop themselves to the maximum.  Alternatively, we will support them setting up Nam Yang schools around the world.  In return for supplying our trainee instructors with dedicated teaching and reduced fees at the Retreat we ask that they contribute about 10 hours work a week.  The nature of this will depend on each individual’s skills.

More about our Apprentice Instructor Scheme: What Is In It For You?
Since we aim to have the best instructors possible we take the training of our instructors very seriously. All instructor receive extra training.

Practical Martial Arts Training.
After completing two month of basic training, trainee instructors move on to the advanced training program covering more advanced elements
of Kung Fu and Chi Kung and are also invited to the extra instructor only training sessions each week which are usually run by
Master Iain.

Instructor students can expect to learn a variety of different weapons as well as freehand routines, progress through a demanding series of
‘breaking’ skills destroying first roof tiles then concrete blocks, master highly practical fighting skills and develop themselves physically,
mentally and spiritually.

Teacher Training.
A truly great teacher needs a wide variety of skills. How to communicate difficult techniques and complex knowledge, how to motivate, how
to lead, how to manage groups of people, how properly listen to, understand and help their students, how to organise and how to conduct
themself properly. We spend two hours a week working on these skills, usually taught directly by master Iain. This is one of the things that
sets our course apart – we give you the skills that you really need to succeed as a full time martial arts teacher.

Teaching Practise.
This is not a theoretical course. As soon as we feel that you are ready – usually after about one month’s instructor training – you will begin
teaching for real. This will usually be either as an assistant an experienced teacher or with individual student, maybe groups of up to three.
You will have the chance to teach for real. As you progress and become a stronger teacher you will sometime be given the opportunity to
lead a class. By the end of your training you should be able to lead classes on your own and teach a broad range of kung fu skills.

This is an opportunity to devote your self whole heartedly to the pursuit of kung fu. There are not so many opportunities like this available.
Check us out, compare all of the options available then if you want to be considered contact us, explaining that you are interested in training
to be an instructor. You will receive a personal response – we place a very high value on our students instructors.
