Academy Diet

Nutrition for Warriors

Nutrition

Nutrition is one of our essential energy sources and certainly of great importance when you want to study martial arts intensively. The meals served in the academy are the same kind of food that all the Shifus have been eating through out their whole life, of training. For some western students this may be hard to accept and overcome. However we have no doubt that the food we serve should provide our students with enough fuel to perform at their best!

We will occasionally serve fruits. But if you are a big fruit lover we advise you to buy your own.
