Something that sets our program apart from other similar courses is the fact that we have designed it to include in-depth and traditional training, introducing as many aspects of true kung fu training as possible. That means training the 5 Concepts (Speed, Accuracy, Power, Hardness (resistance of the skin and bones to impact) and Martial Intent (mental fortitude to do what you must)) together, whereas most schools only focus on the first three. Indeed, the last two are the most difficult for people to train, but without them, you are not really training martial arts.

Aside from the martial aspect of training, living in a rural Chinese environment during these programs, being exposed to the daily life and culture of the Shaolin Temple, having the opportunity to learn more about Chan Buddhism and getting an inside look at what Shaolin martial arts really means, is what we, and our past participants, believe makes our program unique.

The price for the 2019 20-Day Warrior’s Way program, inclusive of all the above listed items, is 14888 RMB (approx. $2222/£1680), all inclusive. Participants also have the opportunity to book optional extras, such as private rooms and extra sets of training clothes. Please contact us if you are interested in these additional benefits.

After an initial deposit payment of 20%, participants then have up until 1 month before the start of the program to pay the rest.

We have a maximum enrollment of 8 people on our Shaolin bootcamps. For full details of everything that is included in these programs, please see our website:
