Shaolin Temple Experiences – 2-Week Shaolin Kung Fu Training

Our 2-Week Shaolin Kung Fu Training program is our most intense experience. It pushes participants mentally, physically and emotionally, and requires people to really dig down and find what they are capable of achieving. 

To begin with, you will be following the same program as our 1-week participants, focusing on cardio, flexibility, strength, stamina and speed, all the while learning the traditional Shaolin Tongbiquan form. In week 2, you will continue to push yourself through more intense training sessions, including advanced jibengong (foundationssessions and more focus on martial applications. You will also learn the Yinshougun, a traditional Shaolin stick form first mentioned in Cheng Zongyou’s Exposition of the Original Shaolin Staff Method, written in around 1610.

On all our programs, participants can choose to take part in as much or as little as they wish, and push themselves as far as they want. While your Shaolin teacher, and your guide, will continually push you to go past your limits, you will never be forced to do something you are uncomfortable with, and you are always free to rest as required, though you are strongly encouraged to push through until the end!

In terms of kung fu, on the 2-Week Shaolin Kung Fu Training Program participants will take part in:

  • Shaolin Cardio Training
  • Intense Shaolin Stretching Sessions
  • Jibengong (the foundation of Shaolin martial arts) training
  • Learning the complete Shaolin Tongbiquan form
  • Learning the Shaolin Yinshougun Stick form
  • Training how to apply techniques learnt
  • Combat conditioning
  • Qigong exercises

All participants wishing to enrol on one of our programs are strongly advised to watch our introductory video, viewable here in our Video Gallery, before signing up.

Therefore, in the best interests of applicants, CK Martial Hearts reserves the right to decline your reservation request if we feel you are either unsuitable for the program, or if we deem we will be unable to fully meet your expectations.
