We are a serious Kung Fu academy and we generally accept everyone who wants join our family, we only ask of you to train hard and give your 100%. We have a lot of understanding for people and their obstacles, and we are here to help you overcome them.
Therefore, it is necessary for us to set some rules so everyone can maximize their training. Everyone who arrives to China is coming with some expectation and it is our task to try to meet everyone in his or her search for authentic Kung Fu training.
Traditional Kung Fu teaches the students to train their bodies and minds to their highest levels, so that they may live longer and have more fulfilling lives. One of the most important aspects of Chinese martial arts is morality. In Shaolin Kung Fu there are two aspects of morality that are taught: The first is morality of the mind includes WILL, ENDURANCE, PERSEVERANCE, PATIENCE, and BRAVERY.
The second aspect is morality of action that consists of HUMILITY, RESPECT, RIGHTEOUSNESS, TRUST, and LOYALTY. These ideals are an integral part of the training curriculum at the Tianmeng Kung Fu Academy and are taught alongside the physical aspects of the art in order to help the students reach the highest potential towards self-mastery.
We therefore ask you to commit to abide by these rules and requirements for the length of your stay at the Academy. The purpose is to ensure the safety of all, to protect the collective atmosphere of the academy, and to maintain the discipline necessary to practice Kung Fu. In order to teach foreign students at the academy, official permits are signed with the government that creates a personal responsibility and liability of the Headmaster Mr. Zhou. The student is a direct representative of our academy and any problems may have great consequences both for the student and for the academy. It is therefore very important to maintain a good attitude, as a guest of China.
Please consider your stay at the academy as a unique opportunity for intensive training and study, but also as a time to relax away from your own life in society. If you are not willing to put effort, and discipline, you are wasting the time of the master and of yourself. We will expect you to respect the discipline of the training and study and to do as instructed. The discipline is the exact frame that will allow you to grow and learn more.
