    Hey there,

    I have recently discovered this site and I am completely in awe. I really enjoyed this blog a lot and purely out of interest I was wondering, will there be a follow-up blog to this, or will there be something like this from other students?

    Keep up the good work, I am really inspired by this site and will maybe try to visit the school myself one day!

    • Hey Rutger,

      Thanks for your nice comment! It’s great to see our stories reaching people. Yes there are follow up posts to this coming really soon. Actually the computer that Matthew wrote his diary on died recently so we just need to get that fixed and we’ll get it up. Yes to your other question as well. We’ll regularly ask students to write about their experiences and we have a bunch of videos we’re trying to get up as well. If you have anything else you would like to see and read about relating to life at our school, martial arts life, Chinese culture, training tips etc… just let us know and we’ll be able to put it out. The purpose of the school’s blog is to inform and inspire. To know that it’s reached just one person is fantastic ๐Ÿ˜€

      If you’re interested in coming out here to live and train, you can email us at If you have any general questions, you can write them in the comments below as the answers might help others as well.

        I’m really hapy to hear that in the future more of these blogs will be available, I’ve had a lot of pleasure reading it, so I’m really looking forward to it, it has been very inspiring so far!

        I am not sure how general this question is, but there was one thing I read in the blog : “if you choose to go with an extremely physically demanding program, make sure you have what it takes to survive it.”

        I was just wondering whether this is saying that you need to already be very fit by the time you start, or does it simply mean that you need proper willpower and dedication to survive it?

        I am looking forward to reading more from this site! ๐Ÿ™‚

        I guess I am asking because I have asthma myself, but would love to come and train at some point of my life, whether that’d be in 6 months or 6 years.


        • Hey Rutger,

          Anyone, at any fitness level can benefit from the training. Fitness itself doesn’t actually take such a long time to build up. The shock to the system comes from the daily training. After the first couple of weeks, it gets easier as you get progressively stronger. If you’re fit already, that’s great as well though. From there on, it’s more a mental exercise to keep yourself motivated and always pushing yourself.

          I hope that answers your question ๐Ÿ˜€

    I stumbled onto this site the other day for some reason while just browsing the internet. The more i read on this website the more I get the feeling that this is something I really want to try out at some point in my life. The sooner the better!

    This blog is extra interesting in my opinion since Iยดm now considering visiting you at some point.
    What I think would be awsome is to have some blogs like this one but from students that follows diffrent paths. By that i mean that you have one for Tai Chi, Wing Chun, Sanda and so on. So that people that are interested to maby join you get some insight to the diffrent styles and how things work.
    Also, I noticed the Photos & Videos tab only had Photos. It would be cool to see some short clip from a training session on the diffrent styles.


    • Hey Fredrik,

      Those are great ideas! Actually we have a lot of videos on the way. We’ve been so busy training that we haven’t had the opportunity to actually put them together. They will go up on the photos and videos page. I’ll write a short reply here so that you’re notified when a new video goes up. Or you can simply subscribe to our Youtube channel to get direct notifications of videos.

      Thanks Fredrik

    Very nice site, although I found diary boring. I hope some day i visit you.
    What have changed in Chinese culture and you have no problem to teach Wing Tsun ?
    I was looking for a teacher and I visited Chinese Embassy’s site for help. No word for Wing Tsun, not even Kung Fu.
    Why don’t you cooperate ?
    Anyway, Keep on good working!!

    • Hey Vivi,

      Cooperating with the Chinese Embassy is quite a good idea actually. I imagine their official website mainly deals with administrative things. About Chinese culture changing, China has certainly become a lot more open recently and while Wing Chun (Wing Tsun) has always been available in China, it is now becoming more widely available for foreigners.

      You’re welcome to visit us any time Vivi. Good luck with your training.

    Master Wang is an excellent tcaheer and passionate about Martial Arts. I encourage anyone who wants to learn traditional Kung Fu and Sanda to learn from him. He creates an ideal learning environment and pushes you to be the best that you can be. Definitely benefited greatly from my experience with him as my Master, and can not wait to go back.Mark
