WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US

  • I wanted my mind to calm down and reclaim who I used to be. Nam Yang really fulfilled
    these needs.
  • I went with an open mind but did wonder how, at 55 I would cope with the training. I knew I needed to kick start my fitness and do something about my health – my posture was poor and I had felt drained of energy from work and a busy life as a solo dad; I wanted my mind to calm down and reclaim who I used to be. Nam Yang really fulfilled these needs.
  • David , Student
  • Both physically and mentally I am in a far better state than when I had arrived.
  • In being there, I have achieved my goals and have felt more myself than I have in years.
  • Freya S, Student
  • To get the maximum out of this you must be fully committed.
  • It’s not a holiday. If you do it right it certainly can recalibrate your mind, body and soul. I am 59 and I came here with my 21 year old son. We both got what we came for. We are now talking about coming back.
  • Ajit DG , Student
  • Gaining a true understanding of what Kung-Fu means for both mind, body, and spirit is the basic foundation started from day 1.
  • I came with the intention to learn martial arts movements, but I left with an understanding of what it means to master one’s self.
  • Markus L , Student
  • You just generally feel better physically and mentally.
  • You feel a whole new link between body and mind. It a feeling that doesn’t really come naturally to Westerners. You manage your thoughts better. See things within that you never allowed yourself the time to do. You just generally feel better physically and mentally.
  • John Michael , Student
  • ..you learn how to discipline your mind.
  • Not only do you learn how to strengthen and use your body in an efficient manner but also you learn how to discipline your mind. You become very conscious of your movements and your thoughts and that is a very intriguing feeling. I definitely feel more confident and more relaxed with traveling alone. I went here to balance myself, ease my mind and feel capable to deal with whatever crosses my path in the future.
  • Esther D. , Student

Internships

Internships are for people who are serious about learning Kung Fu and serious about becoming teachers and leaders ready to take this to the world and by so doing make a positive change.

Interns are given ongoing coaching on teaching and a significant amount of teaching practise. As an intern you ARE a kung fu teacher. You live, train and teach for real as part of our instructor team. Interns participate in our full training program as usual, but attend the advanced lessons instead of the basic lessons whenever these are run. They also do an additional 5.5 hours of advanced training each week directly with Master Iain and another 2 hours with the senior instructors. The training program is designed to get the best out of each student and maximise individual potentials. We will adapt the program to accommodate people who need to raise their fitness levels gradually so high fitness, whilst encouraged, is not essential. Strong character values are, however, an absolute requirement and interns are expected to ‘live the spirit of kung fu’ and lead by example.

An internship is a chance to challenge your self and to transform yourself. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to head into the mountains, away from the hustle and bustle of the ‘usual’ world and work on your body, your mind and your breath: to master your self! It is not easy but the hard work is worth it. If you feel that you need to radically change the direction of your life, this may be the best chance that you will ever be presented with.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US

  • Master Iain is world class; his Kung Fu Retreat is top shelf.
  • I’d not taken a vacation break in 8 years and really needing something to energize my body, calm my mind, soothe my spirit and feed my soul. A dream come true, Nam Yang gave me all this and more. Master Iain is world class; his Kung Fu Retreat is top shelf.
  • Dr David , Student
  • It’s hard work. And it’s completely worth it.
  • I’d not taken a vacation break in 8 years and really needing something to energize my body, calm my mind, soothe my spirit and feed my soul. A dream come true, Nam Yang gave me all this and more. Master Iain is world class; his Kung Fu Retreat is top shelf.
  • Mos J, Student
  • I’m calm now. Truly calm.
  • He (Master Iain) asked me what I was looking to get out of this. I said that I wanted to get in better shape and maybe calm my mind down a bit. I have done this and so much more. I’ve learned that Kung Fu is a way of life. It’s everything I do, the way I breathe, the way I walk, the way I interact with others, even the way I think. It’s all encompassing, and it has helped me improve each one of these things…My girlfriend asked me how Nam Yang and Kung fu had changed me. I paused, and then said, “I’m calm now. Truly calm.” And that is the biggest thing that Nam Yang has given to me. And through that calm, I begin my journey to peace. True inner peace. What a wonderful gift.
  • Shahid , Student
  • I surpassed my personal physical goals of being more flexible, agile, improved balance and mentally calm and stronger.
  • Shahid , Student
  • What I achieved during my stay was exactly what I wanted. I think of my time here as a life investment. I have become both physically and mentally stronger.
  • Vinny K , Student
  • Master Iain has build something special over there and he is indeed a true Master.
  • It was one of my best lifestyle experiences so far. The lessons were intense, diverse, fun, challenging, sometimes mentally tough but so rewarding making progress each minute of the training. Master Iain has build something special over there and he is indeed a true Master. His wisdom and knowledge being shared over there is just fantastic.
