Introduction  of  Weihai    

Weihai,  with  its  coastal  line  of  1000  kilometers,  is  located  at  the  eastern  tip  of  Shandong  Peninsula,  surrounded  by  sea  from  three  sides,  facing  Korea  Peninsula  and  Japan  Islands  across  the  sea.
Weihai  is  situated  at  the  foot  of  the  hill  and  beside  the  sea  with  pleasant  weather.  About  one  hundred  large  or  small  islands,  30  odd  charming  bays,  numerous  natural  bathing  beaches  and  nice  landscapes  are  scattered  along  the  coast.  Located  at  the  middle  latitude,  Weihai  enjoys  variable  continental  monsoon  climate  with  characterized  seasons  as  warm  winter,  cool  summer,  cold  spring  and  mild  autumn.  With  rich  underground  thermal  resource,  Weihai  is  also  a  famous  thermal  spring  recuperation  resort.

Between  1898-1930,  the  town  was  a  British  colony.  Weihai  was  not  developed  in  the  way  that  Hong  Kong,  the  other  British  colony  in  China,  was  developed,  because  Weihai  fell  into  Germany's  sphere  of  influence.  It  was  largely  used  as  a  naval  station  and  a  sanatorium.  During  the  colonial  period  it  was  known  as  Weihaiwai  or  the  Weihai  Garrison,  and  sometimes  as  Port  Edward.  Weihai  borders  Yantai  to  the  west  and  the  Yellow  Sea  to  the  east.

At  present,  Weihai  is  a  commercial  port  and  major  fishing  center  with  some  light  industries.  Due  to  its  close  proximity  to  South  Korea,  Weihai  also  has  a  large  Korean  business  community  and  receives  many  Korean  tourists.  Weihai  is  also  a  key  production  area  for  peanuts  and  fruit.

Introduction  of  the  Academy  

Quanzhen  Wushu  Academy  is  a  traditional  Mantis  Boxing  kung  fu  training  academy  that  welcomes  the  student  come  from  home  and  abroad  to  learn  all  levels  of  traditional  Kung  Fu.  Kung  fu  is  offered  as  well  as  other  ancient  arts  of  combat  such  as  Taichi,  Chi  kung  ,Wing  Chun,  Xingyi,  Bagua,  Baji,  Mantis  boxing,many  Animals  Styles  and  Sanda  (Chinese  kick  boxing).Our  kung  fu  students  are  trained  and  taught  by  Mr.  Bao  Yuping  who  is  a  highly  qualified  kung  fu  master  with  many  years  experience.  The  academy  is  situated  next  to  the  tranquil  mountains  of  eastern  China,  the  birthplace  of  Taoism(Quan  Zhen  Religion),  which  gives  the  students  a  picturesque  and  peaceful  landscape  for  training  mind  and  body.  
This  establishment  is  authorized  by  the  local  government.This  gives  our  students  the  confidence  that  they  are  attending  a  legitimate  kung  fu  training  facility.  Additionally,  optional  mandarin,  painting  and  calligraphy,Buddhism  and  Taoism  theories,etc.  are  offered.  

The  Quanzhen  Wushu  Academy  is  located  at  the  foot  of  the  Mountain  Kunyu(Wuran  Temple  Scenic  Spot),  one  of  National  Forest  Parks,  set  in  an  environmentally  protected  area  of  natural  beauty  and  cultural  importance.  The  academy  is  one  hour’s  drive  east  of  Yantai  City  in  Shandong  Province,  China.  There  are  many  local  scenic  spots  and  historic  places.  There  also  have  four  scenic  spots  named  Yanxia  Cave,Magu  Temple,  Nine-dragon  Pool  and  Taibo.  

The  Academy  is  ideally  situated  away  from  the  city  Yantai  and  Weihai,  and  its  beautiful  surroundings  support  the  martial  arts  training  spirit.  The  air  is  clean  and  the  environment  is  relaxed  and  tranquil.  It  is  a  perfect  location  for  a  serious  study  of  kung  fu.  


Kung  Fu  training

Traditional  external  &  internal  Mantis  Boxing,  also  includes  various  fist  forms  and  weapons  forms  along  with  their  applications,  contact  sparring  and  Chi  kung.  Both  male  and  female  students  who  are  16  or  older  are  welcomed  to  come  and  study.  Younger  students  may  be  accepted  if  they  are  accompanied  by  a  parent  or  an  older  relative  (brother/sister).  No  previous  martial  arts  experience  is  required.  Only  dedication  to  learn  and  a  positive  attitude.  However,  students  with  experience  in  martial  arts  may  be  able  to  learn  quicker.  In  order  to  ensure  the  teaching  quality,  generally,  there  are  around  7  students  per  master.  This  ensures  high  quality  teaching  on  a  personal  level,  and  a  close  family  atmosphere  inside  the  group.  

Accommodation  and  food  quality  are  very  good.  The  nutrition  of  food  is  enough  to  satisfy  with  the  requirement  of  students.  For  accommodation  ,generally,  one  to  two  students  share  one  room.

You  will  know  about  more  traditional  kung  fu  styles  that  are  popular  in  China  after  clicking  here,  meanwhile  ,  all  the  kungfu  styles  mentioned  below  have  their  corresponding  classes  here.  

Mantis  Fist  (Tanglang  Quan)  

Mantis  Fist  (Tanglang  Quan)  was  very  popular  in  the  Han  Dynasty.  It  has  a  long  history,  dating  back  to  200AD.  
The  Fist  is  very  useful  in  close  range  combat,  so  it  has  another  name  called  short-hit  Fist,  one  of  the  pictographic  fists.  

Mantis  Fist  has  a  high  value  on  improving  learners'  health.  In  the  past,  it  was  the  most  popular  in  the  cities  of  Laiyang  in  Yantai  and  Qingdao.  It's  a  well-known  fact  that  Mantis  Fist  originated  from  Yantai.  Gradually  this  kind  of  fist  spread  far  and  wide  all  over  China.  Now  Mantis  Fist  has  spread  all  over  the  world.  
The  creator  was  Wanglang.  There  is  a  legend  about  him.  During  the  reign  of  the  Chinese  Han  Dynasty,  there  was  a  very  skilled  warrior  in  Chinese  Martial  Arts,  called  Wang  Lang.  He  spent  much  of  his  time  roaming  many  famous  Chinese  places,  during  which  he  made  lots  of  chivalrous  friends  and  fortunately  met  some  great  masters  who  taught  him  great  skills  in  Chinese  Martial  Arts.  But  he  was  devastated  when  he  later  lost  in  a  Gongfu  competition,  and  became  very  depressed.  Lying  under  a  big  locust  tree,  he  suddenly  saw  two  praying  mantises  fight  viciously  for  an  insect.  These  two  mantises  were  assuming  various  positions,  such  as  Hooking,  Pulling,  Jumping,  Defending  and  Locking.  Wanglang  was  so  immersed  in  the  two  Mantis  movements  that  he  felt  very  inspired.  These  thoughts  of  contemplation  helped  him  to  create  an  early  basic  structure  of  Mantis  Fist.  He  continued  to  practice  very  hard  and  became  highly  skilled.  He  went  back  to  challenge  the  man  who  had  defeated  him.  This  time,  the  man  could  not  match  Wanglang,  so  he  won  easily.  

Afterwards,  he  integrated  the  classic  parts  of  the  most  famous  18  Fists,  as  well  as  adopting  some  monkey  movements  into  the  form.  The  movement  of  Mantis  Fist  became  perfected.  Characteristically,  it  was  fast  and  agile.  

The  traditional  Mantis  Fist  shows  great  emphasis  on  the  entirety  of  6  aspects  of  Spirit,  Bodymovements,  Consciousness  (Mind),  Qi  (Dantian,  lower  part  of  your  abdomen),  Strength  and  Variety  of  technique.  All  these  aspects  will  help  you  achieve  a  high  level,  which  means  the  external  practice  will  be  more  harmony  with  the  internal  practice.  Mantis  Fist  is  based  on  the  principle  of  being  swift,  steady,  exact  and  varied.  The  moves  include,  Hooking,  Picking  (it  is  a  kind  of  defending  skill),  Hanging  and  Beng  Fist.  The  technique  routes  are  mainly  arc  and  round,  while  the  body  revolves  in  different  movements  (in  order  to  dispel  the  hitting  strength  from  the  enemy.)  5  parts  of  your  body,  named  Wufeng  (head,  shoulders,  elbows,  hips  and  knees),  play  an  important  role  in  a  fight.  Your  hands  and  feet  called  Liangshao,  will  have  strong  power.  With  fist,  several  forms  are  going  on  simultaneously,  so  there  is  no  the  single  form.  When  your  adversary  is  a  little  further  from  you,  you  punch  with  a  straight  fist.  If  nearer,  you  try  to  control  and  attack  using  some  forms  of  wrestling.  Almost  all  parts  of  your  body  can  attack  the  opponent,  so  you  can  shut  all  the  retreat  routes  of  your  opponent.  The  moment  the  adversary  defends,  he  has  already  been  injured.  

The  main  movement,  "Yuhuang  Movement,"  is  unique  to  Mantis  Fist.  Its  characteristic  is  to  keep  an  energetic  state,  like  a  strong  and  fast  arrow  in  a  bow  ready  to  shoot.  All  the  forms  are  full  of  strong  power  and  speed.  

The  content  of  this  Fist  includes  3  parts.  They  are  "the  forms  of  external  practice",  "the  forms  of  internal  practice"and  "Elementary,  Junior,  Senior  forms".  You  can  learn  from  easy  to  complicated  forms  that  cannot  effectively  be  described  by  words.  Only  with  a  whole-heart  can  we  get  the  essence  of  Mantis  Fist.  The  advisable  way  for  practicing  it  is  through  oral  instruction.  So  we  can  only  offer  you  a  broad  outline.  
Weapons  include  the  single  sword,  double  swords,  stick,  spear  and  etc.  

Taiji  Quan  (Tai  Chi)

Taiji  is  a  kind  of  martial  art  which  uses  soft  strength  to  restrain  the  opponent's  strong  power.  It  is  also  one  of  the  three  excellent  internal  martial  arts  (Xingyi,  Taiji  and  Bagua).

"Taiji"  is  a  technical  term  from  Chinese  traditional  philosophy,  translating  as  "origin  of  the  universe"  and  "supreme  and  unique".  

A  widespread  legend  has  been  passed  down  about  Taiji  Fist.  In  the  Chinese  Ming  Dynasty,  there  was  an  outstanding  man  named  Zhang  Sanfeng,  who  excelled  in  Martial  Arts.  He  had  an  unusual  quality  to  him  and  looked  down  upon  on  fame  and  wealth.  One  year,  he  had  a  competition  with  a  man  who  was  extremely  strong.  Zhang  Sanfeng  couldn't  defeat  him  with  external  force.  In  order  to  defeat  the  man,  Zhang  put  all  his  effort  into  the  research  of  many  Chinese  martial  arts.  Ultimately,  Zhang  Sanfeng  created  the  new  Fist.  In  the  second  competition,  he  took  the  new  fist  and  used  a  distinctive  technique  to  defeat  his  opponent;  namely,  he  shrewdly  used  the  man's  own  power  to  defeat  him.  This  technique  immediately  impressed  people  and  gradually,  Taiji  Quan  became  famous  along  with  this  story.  
The  main  principle  of  Taiji  Fist  is  that  with  the  soft  strength,  you  restrain  the  opponent's  strong  power,  and  with  the  skill  of  this  fist,  you  shrewdly  take  your  adversary's  strength  and  use  it  against  them.  Taiji  Fist  is  therefore  very  effective  in  actual  combat.  

Taiji  Fist  is  also  remarkably  beneficial  for  improving  the  learner's  health.  In  Chinese  modern  society,  it  is  suitable  for  everyone,  from  kids  to  the  elderly.  It  is  very  popular  in  China.

Rules  of  practice:  
No.1  Keep  in  mind  that  the  "Qi"  circulating  in  the  arteries  and  veins  mutually  adjusts  to  the  steps  and  movements  of  your  hands,  eyes  and  body.  
No.2  All  of  your  movements  and  Forms  are  directed  by  your  consciousness.  
No.3  Integrate  adjustments  naturally  between  your  breath  and  forms,  and  take  everything  naturally.  
It  has  been  acknowledged  that  training  this  fist  is  very  useful  for  building  body  strength,  curing  illnesses,  cultivating  your  moral  character  and  prolonging  your  life.  
Nowadays  there  are  5  sects  of  famous  Taiji  Fists,  which  are  Chenshi  Taiji,  Sunshi  Taiji,  Wushi  Taiji  ,Yangshi  Taiji  and  Wushi  Taiji  (different).  

Bagua  Palm  (Bagua  Zhang)  

Bagua  Palm,  also  called  "Bagua  Yousheng  Lianhuan  Palm,"  was  created  by  Donghaichuan,  in  Wen'an  county,  Hebei  province.  It  is  one  of  three  Neijia  Fists  (Neijia  Fist  means  fists  that  mainly  focus  on  the  training  and  refinement  of  your  spirit,  internal  energy  and  potential).  The  two  main  elements  in  Bagua  are  the  interaction  between  the  palm  and  feet  movements.  It  combines  the  internal  and  concentration  of  breath  with  the  external  form  of  movements.

Donghaichuan  was  born  in  the  18th  years  of  Jiaqing  emperor  in  Qing  Dynasty.  It  was  said  that  he  became  an  apprentice  to  an  old  Taoist  in  Xuehua  Mountain  in  Southern  China.  His  master  spent  10  years  teaching  him  a  kind  of  peculiar  but  marvelous  Martial  Art.  Afterwards,  his  master  gave  him  a  book  named  "Heluluoji"  and  told  him  to  study  it  in  great  detail.  With  inspiration  from  this  book  and  "Yi"  theory,  he  creatively  put  the  scattered  techniques  into  a  set  of  completed  Gongfu  movements,  which  became  what  is  now  known  as  Bagua  Palm.

The  movements  of  Bagua  Palm  are  very  soft  and  agile,  making  it  easy  to  turn  around  or  move  forward  like  snake  to  hit  the  opponent's  lower  part.  With  quick  movements,  a  Bagua  practitioner  can  cope  with  several  enemies  simultaneously.  
The  central  tenet  of  Bagua  is  understanding  the  transfer  of  movement  between  the  stances  of  body  and  palm  positions.  
The  basic  patterns  of  palm  are:  single-changing  palm,  double-changing  palm,  double-hitting  palm,  penetrating  palm,  pushing  upward  palm,  turning  around  palm,  revolving  palm  and  swaying  palm.  The  shapes  of  this  palm  are:  facing  upward  palm,  fingers  downward  palm,  erecting  palm,  penetrating  palm,  chopping  palm,  pushing  upward  and  so  on  .The  basic  steps:  twist  inside  of  your  feet,  twist  outside  your  feet,  moving  with  large  steps,  stepping  from  a  up-position  to  a  down-position.  
In  the  past,  Bagua  Palm  was  used  as  a  method  of  fighting  in  combat.  However,  nowadays,  many  people  practice  to  improve  their  health  and  live  a  long  live.

Qigong  (Chi  Kung)

When  speaking  of  Qi  Gong,  firstly,  we  should  understand  what  the  essence  of  "Qi's".  There  are  many  kinds  of  "Qi,"  but  Chinese  traditional  culture  emphasizes  that  the  most  basic  one  is  "YuanQi"  -  the  origin  of  all  living  things.  YuanQi  is  an  engine  or  an  anchor  for  human's  growth,  metabolism  and  physical  development.  YuanQi  also  plays  an  important  role  in  defending  illnesses.  So  Chinese  medicine  teaches  that  the  life  all  depends  on  the  circulation  of  Qi.  
Qi  Gong  depends  on  the  theory  of  "Qi".  If  practiced  properly,  it  will  be  very  useful  for  curing  illness.  It  will  help  you  effectively  maintain  YuanQi,  promote  your  circulatory  system,  and  the  healthy  functioning  of  your  blood.  
Qi  Gong  is  founded  on  a  whole  life  outlook,  related  to  the  law  of  nature.  When  practicing  it,  you  mainly  take  the  initiative  of  your  own  consciousness  .The  content  includes  3  adjustments:  to  adjust  your  mind  in  peace,  to  adjust  your  body  into  the  best  condition  and  to  adjust  your  breath  in  balance  .If  you  keep  training  regularly  and  persisting,  gradually  the  function  of  many  parts  of  your  body  will  be  greatly  enhanced  and  step  by  step,  your  health  condition  will  be  improved.  The  practice  is  able  to  improve  quality  of  life,  and  naturally  transmute  and  develop  a  deeper  awareness  of  subtle  energies.  

The  unity  of  Qi  Gong,  Chinese  Medicine  and  Chinese  Martial  Arts  is  considered  one  of  the  most  important  parts  of  Chinese  traditional  culture.  More  and  more  people  from  all  over  the  world  are  beginning  to  learn  about  them  and  enjoy  them.  
The  unique  benefits  of  Qi  Gong  for  people¡¯s  health  has  been  acknowledged  by  modern  science.  
There  are  many  sects  of  Qi  Gong.  According  to  Chinese  history,  Qi  Gong  was  passed  down  among  the  people.  In  time,  experience  accumulated  and  several  famous  sects  became  the  most  popular:  Yi  sect,  Ru  sect,  Tao  sect,  Buddha  sect  and  Wu  sect.  However,  all  sects  stressed  an  importance  on  4  aspects:  keeping  healthy,  cultivating  one¡¯s  moral  character,  making  clear  one¡¯s  consciousness  about  life  and  the  combination  between  the  three  aspects  as  the  great  essence  of  Chinese  Martial  Arts.  Yi  sects  focuses  on  keeping  healthy  to  prolong  life;  Buddha  sect  values  the  clear  mind  for  the  life  and  Wu  sect  mainly  concentrates  on  the  skills  of  Martial  Arts.  

Sanda  (Chinese  kickboxing)

Sanda  roughly  translates  as  "actual  combat".  In  the  past,  Chinese  called  it  "technique  fighting"  or  "striking".  The  simple  concept  of  Sanda  is  two  people  fighting  against  each  other  without  weapons.  Sanda  evolves  from  a  combination  of  traditional  Chinese  martial  arts  fist  forms  with  its  own  distinctive  essence  and  practical  style.  It  is  one  of  the  main  Chinese  Martial  Arts,  and  has  a  unique  and  distinctive  style.  In  the  year  of  1979,  it  became  an  event  in  the  "National  Technique  Competition"  in  China.  The  four  attacking  methods  are  Kicking,  Hitting,  Wrestling,  and  Controlling.  

Sanda  combines  using  skill  in  pose  and  technique.  Sanda  Pose  is  normally  called  a  "ready"  stance,  where  the  fighter  is  prepared  for  combat.  Training  in  Sanda  can  help  you  keep  your  body  in  powerful  condition,  and  develops  the  quickest  of  reflexes.  Making  use  of  fast  movements  to  attack  or  defend,  the  fighter  leaves  little  exposure  of  their  body,  very  effective  in  protecting  the  key  parts  of  your  body.  

There  are  two  poses  in  Sanda:  Left  and  Right  Pose.  For  the  left  pose,  one  of  your  feet  stands  out,  the  other,  behind.  The  distance  between  the  heel  of  the  forward  foot  and  the  tiptoe  of  backward  foot  is  the  same  width  as  the  shoulders.  The  sole  of  your  left  foot  completely  touches  the  ground,  while  the  heel  of  your  right  foot  rises  up  a  little.  Your  knees  naturally  bend  a  little.  The  center  of  gravity  of  your  body  moves  to  the  right,  the  chest  moves  up  and  your  stomach  folds  inwards.  The  left  arm  twists  inside  about  90  degrees,  while  the  center  of  the  left  fist  moves  parallel  to  the  tip  of  your  nose.  Your  right  arm  twists  inwards  about  45  degrees,  and  your  two  fists  come  in  front  of  your  neck.  The  elbows  keep  naturally  vertical  or  a  little  inwards,  and  your  chin  stays  is  a  little  lower.  All  the  time,  your  eyes  focus  on  the  upper  body  of  your  adversary.

The  skill  of  Sanda  is  in  combining  movements  of  Step,  Fist,  Leg,  Knee,  Wrestling,  Defending  and  Constant  attacking.  The  right  and  left  poses  remain  the  same,  vice-versa.  
Step:This  dictates  the  direction  of  body  movement  (left,  right,  forward,  backward  and  so  on)  in  a  fight.  Agility  and  quick  foot  movements  are  not  only  the  key  to  keep  balance,  but  gives  superiority  in  attacking  and  defending.  There  are  9  kinds  of  steps,  which  are  forward  step,  backward  step,  transferring  step,  Ce  kua  step,  Nei  step,  Gai  step,  Cha  step,  Dian  step  and  Ji  step.  

Fist  skill:  There  are  5  main  kinds  of  Fist  movements,  which  are  Straight  fist,  Bai  fist,  Hooking  fist,  Chopping  fist  and  Whipping  fist.  The  skill  of  fists  is  in  the  interchange  between  fast  speed,  flexibility  and  variety.  An  effective  fist  can  hit  a  target  at  the  shortest  distance  and  with  the  fastest  speed.  In  Sanda,  the  use  of  fist  movements  combined  with  other  skills  makes  for  a  very  effective  fighting  style.  
Leg  movements:  They  are  divided  into  three  parts,  which  are  Stretching  movements,  Straight  and  Swaying  movements  and  Sweeping  movements.  Subtle  movements  of  flexibility  are  very  important  in  leg  and  kicking  movements.  Leg  movements  are  used  when  the  opponent  is  at  more  of  a  distance.  Also  this  kind  of  attack  can  conceal  targeting  key  parts  of  the  opponent's  body.  When  these  movements  are  used,  remember  to  be  fast,  powerful  and  exact.  
Wrestling  movements:  Wrestling  movements  are  used  ultimately,  to  floor  the  opponent  in  Sanda.  To  do  this,  the  fighter  must  use  fast  and  subtle  technique.  When  taking  down  an  opponent,  you  must  be  quick  and  decisive,  never  leaving  any  chance  of  defense.  
Knee  movements:  Knee  kicks  can  be  used  to  target  the  abdomen  or  chest  of  your  opponent.  This  movement  is  very  powerful  and  can  easily  injure.  It  is  much  easier  to  use  when  contesting  at  a  close  distance.  
Defending  movements:  Defending  movements  can  protect  yourself,  control  and  reduce  the  attacking  strength  of  your  enemy.  In  so  doing,  you  can  situate  yourself  in  a  more  dominant  position.  The  ultimate  aim  is  to  be  able  to  effectively  combine  both  defending  and  attacking.  The  purpose  of  exact  and  skillful  defending  is  to  help  protect  yourself,  and  create  better  positioning  for  the  next  assault.  
Constant  attack:  requires  a  succession  of  coordinated  movements  at  a  fast  pace.  When  employing  these  movements,  a  fighter  will  also  make  use  of  faking  attacks  to  throw  their  opponent.  With  this,  an  adversary  will  suffer  assaults  from  all  directions  and  will  have  difficulty  in  defending.  Every  movement  must  flow  from  the  other.  
Sanda  is  a  very  practical  sport,  applicable  to  real  combat.  Practicing  Sanda  will  cultivate  a  distinctive  character;  one  of  intelligence,  strength,  courage,  strong-mindedness,  flexibility  and  decisiveness.  

Xingyi  Quan


Xingyi  Fist  is  one  of  the  three  most  famous  Chinese  traditional  Fists  forms.  It  originated  from  southern  Song  Dynasty,  and  has  nearly  1000  years  of  history.  Based  on  a  broad  and  profound  philosophy  Xingyi  is  founded  on  theoretical  and  scientific  principles.  

There  are  different  versions  of  its  origin  and  founder.  Most  widely  accepted  is  that,  during  wartime  in  Southern  Song  Dynasty,  wounded  soldiers  couldn¡¯t  train  properly  in  GongFu  because  of  their  injuries.  However,  the  soldiers  were  needed  in  battle;  they  had  to  train  somehow  and  improve  their  skills  in  Gong  Fu.  With  his  generals,  Yue  Fei,  a  distinguished  and  loyal  marshal,  began  to  develop  the  basic  shapes  of  the  Xingyi  fist  forms  for  the  soldiers.  They  practiced  this  fist  for  a  long  time,  taking  inspiration  from  observing  the  movements  of  animals  and  combining  it  with  the  principles  of  Wuxing.  Xingyi  fist  developed  into  a  martial  art  of  moderate  movements,  one  that  could  combine  the  internal  and  external  styles  through  inner  control.  

Guo  Yunsheng  developed  the  style  to  completion  and  so  is  generally  acknowledged  as  the  modern  founder.  The  name  of  Xingyi  Fist  was  given  by  him.  
The  technique  and  theory  can  be  summed  up  by  Wuxing  (the  5  elements):  metal,  wood,  water,  fire  and  earth.  The  content  and  theory  of  the  5  elements,  based  on  traditional  Chinese  philosophy,  inspired  the  Xingyi  Fist  and  weapon  forms.  The  5  elements  correspond  to  the  5  forms  of  Xingyi  Fist:  Chopping  Fist,  Beng  Fist,  Zuan  Fist,  Pao  Fist  and  Heng  Fist.  
In  addition,  these  are  12  shapes  of  technique:  Dragon,  Tiger,  Monkey,  Horse,  Cork,  Pear,  Sparrow  hawk,  Swallow,  Eagle,  Snake,  Cat  and  Crane.  
The  movements  emphasize  6  combinations,  which  includes  3  internal  combinations  and  3  external  combinations.  The  "3  Internals"are  namely  the  combination  between  "right  effort"and  consciousness  (mind),  between  the  consciousness  and  the  "Internal  Qi"  and  between  the  "Internal  Qi"and  Internal  strength.  The  "3  Externals"  are  the  combinations  between  the  hands  and  the  feet,  between  the  elbows  and  knees  and  between  the  shoulders  and  arms.  The  main  points  are  having  the  agile  waist  of  a  dragon,  the  strong  shoulder  of  a  bear,  the  nimble  way  of  an  eagle  and  make  sound  like  thunder.  
Xingyi  is  a  unity  between  the  external  forms  and  internal  energy.  It  focuses  on  Mind  dominating  Qi,  the  physical  movements  and  mind  join  together  and  Qi  cooperating  with  strength.  Through  incorporating  the  physical  forms,  the  concentration  of  mind  with  the  combination  of  the  internal  and  external  practice,  Xingyi  is  a  very  effective  combat  technique.  However,  it  can  also  improve  the  learner's  health,  cultivate  the  soul  and  prolong  one's  life.  

Xingyi  Fist  has  several  branches,  such  as  Yuyi  Fist,  Dacheng  Fist,  etc.  which  have  become  famous  in  their  own  right.  In  recent  years,  Xingyi  Fist  has  developed  both  in  China  and  abroad.  More  and  more  people  from  all  over  the  world  are  now  learning  it.  

Baji  Fist  (Baji  Quan)

The  full  name  of  Baji  Fist  is  "Kaimen  Baji  Quan",  which  means  the  mysterious  changes  between  Yin  and  Yang,  which  ultimately  ends  with  eternity.  It  has  a  long  history.  Over  the  years,  it  has  been  gradually  refined,  and  now  has  a  distinctive  style,  with  unique  character  and  form.  In  each  era,  there  have  been  some  outstanding  men  who  have  mastered  Baji.  It  has  had  a  profound  influence  on  the  development  of  Chinese  Martial  Arts.

This  kind  of  fist  began  from  the  Meng  village  in  Cang  County  (now  the  autonomous  Hui  clan  county).  In  the  fifth  year  of  the  Yongzheng  emperor  in  Qing  Dynasty,  a  great  but  strange  man,  called  Lai,  who  was  skilled  in  Martial  Arts  used  to  roam  the  village.  He  found  Wu  Zhong  practicing  Chinese  Fist  very  hard.  He  gave  15-year-old  Wu  Zhong  instruction  and  taught  him  martial  arts.  Wu  Zhong  asked  Lai  to  come  and  stay  at  his  home  and  learnt  from  him  for  three  years.  During  this  period,  Lai  also  taught  him  other  fists  and  Spears.The  day  before  Lai  left,  he  gave  him  a  secret  book  on  Martial  arts.  Nowadays,  there  are  many  records  about  Lai  in  Chinese  history  books.

Eight  years  passed  and  Wu  Zhong  went  to  the  Shaolin  Temple.  There,  he  took  on  wooden  models  of  people  and  monkeys  that  disguised  attacking  weapons.  Many  accomplished  martial  artists  had  been  previously  wounded  by  this  challenge.  But  Wu  Zhong  entered  this  temple  three  times  and  to  people's  great  surprise,  he  wasn't  injured  once.  He  quickly  made  a  name  for  himself  all  over  Southern  China  and  his  unusual  story  spread  out  as  far  as  the  Qing  Dynasty  Palace.  A  martial  official  named  Aixinjueluo.Yun  requested  him  to  attend  the  palace.  This  official  showed  him  great  respect  and  challenged  him  to  compete  with  him.  They  agreed  that  he  who  drew  the  first  blood,  would  lose.  
During  the  duel,  the  official  was  hardly  aware  that  a  small  trace  had  been  left  in  his  eyebrow  when  Wu  Zhong  humbly  stopped  the  competition.  This  victory  helped  Wu  gain  another  great  name:  "Wu  Divine  Sword".  Wu  Zhong  became  even  more  famous  than  before.  
Baji  Fist  focuses  on  actual  combat.  As  a  martial  art,  it  is  characterized  by  its  development  of  strong  power  and  force.  
The  basic  theory  includes  6  "Kai"and  8  "Hitting-Forms".  6  Kai  means  taking  different  ways  of  form,  which  are  DING,  BAO,  TI,  KUA,  KAN  TI  and  Chan.  Each  points  to  the  different  ways  of  practicing  the  fist  forms  and  their  application.  8  Hitting-Forms  corresponds  to  the  8  parts  of  your  body  (head,  arms,  elbows,  hands,  hips,  knees,  feet  and  nails.),  which  can  cooperate  well  with  each  other  to  produce  many  unpredictable  moves,  especially  in  actual  combat.  

Wing  Chun

Wing  Chun  is  one  of  the  ancient  southern  fist  form  style  of  Chinese  Kung  fu.  At  first  it  was  developed  in  Guangdong  and  Fujian  (two  southern  provinces  of  China)  about  250-300  years  ago.

There  are  many  stories  of  its  origin.  The  most  likely  is  the  story  below:  
Wing  Chun  was  created  by  a  female  Shaolin  Master  called  Wu  Mei  (Ng  Mui).  She  was  also  a  great  master  in  Shaolin  white  crane  style.  In  the  Qing  Dynasty  (1644—1911),  the  Southern  Shaolin  Temple  was  set  on  fire  by  the  government.  Five  great  Shaolin  Martial  Artists  (Wu  Mei,  Zhi  Shan,  Bai  Mei,  Feng  Dao  De  and  Miao  Xian)  managed  to  fight  the  enemy  and  escape.  In  order  to  avoid  the  Persecution  for  the  government,  Wu  Mei  hide  in  the  DaLiang  Mountain,  which  is  situated  on  the  boarder  of  Sichuan  and  Yunnan  provinces.  In  this  duration,  she  kept  practicing  Kung  fu;  occasionally  she  saw  a  snake  and  crane  fight.  This  enlightened  her  and  she  created  her  own  unique  style  on  this  basis.  Later  on,  she  passed  this  style  to  Yan  Yong  Chun  (Yim  Wing  Chun).  After  Wing  Chun  gained  this,  she  systematized  it  and  widely  spread  the  form.  Then  people  named  this  style  Wing  Chun  to  memorize  her.        
The  main  fist  forms  in  Wing  Chun  are  twelve  free  forms  (12  San  Shi),  Xiao  Nian  Tou,  seeking  Bridge(Xun  Qiao),  Biao  Zhi,  wooden  dummies  and  empty  poles.  The  weapons  forms  are  Dragon  Pole,  Six-and-a-Half  Point  Pole,  Longpole,  double  butterfly  swords.  The  main  qigong  is  Shengqi  Guiyuan  Chikung.  

The  basic  hand  movements  are  San  Bang  Shou,  Cuoshou,  liaoshou,  Popaishou,  Chenqiao  and  Nianshou(sticky  hand).

The  basic  steps  are  Siping  Step,  Sanzi  Step,  Zhui  Step,  Gui  Step,  and  Duli  Step  etc.

The  training  equipment  used  are  mirror,  punch  bag,  candle,  crate  circle,  chopsticks,  thousands  layer  paper,  and  wooden  dummy.

Wing  Chun  is  a  style,  which  combines  internal  forces  and  close  proximity  punching  together.  Its  sparring  moves  are  like  the  struggle  between  snake  and  crane.  The  block  moves  are  like  the  nimble  and  winding  snake  while  the  attack  moves  are  like  the  fierce  and  fast  crane  moving  at  an  amazing  speed,  or  like  a  tiger  swooping  at  its  prey.  
Wing  Chun  is  based  on  sparring,  with  the  characteristic  of  various  movements,  practical  use,  explosive  power.  Its  typical  moves  are  Da  San  Ce,  Xiao  Fu  Yang,  Geng  Lan  Tan  Bang,  Mo  Dang  Lu,  Shen  Shi  JI  Lao,  Qu  Shou  Liu  Zhong,  Da,  Jie,  Chen,  Biao,  Bang,  Wan  Zhi,  Nian,  Mo,  Yun  Dang,  Tou,  Lou  and  Er  Zi  Qian  Yang  Ma.  Wing  Chun  is  an  internal  Kung  fu  form,  which  uses  a  keen  insight  into  touch.  This  allows  you  a  greater  understanding  of  your  opponent,  with  the  correct  release  of  explosive  power  in  your  sparring.  

The  different  styles  of  Wing  Chun  being  taught  now  is  Ye  Wen  Wing  Chun  fist,  Hong  Ji  fist,  Cen  Neng  Wing  Chun  Fist,  Yuan  Qi  Shan  Wing  Chun  Fist,  Gu  Lao  Pian  Shen  Wing  Chun  Fist,  Hong  Chuan  (red  boat)  Wing  Chun  Fist,  Bao  Hua  Lian  Wing  Chun  Fist,  Peng  Nan  Wing  Chun  Fist.  The  famous  Martial  arts  star  Bruce  Lee  (Li  Xiao  Long)  once  followed  Master  Ye  Wen  and  studied  Wing  Chun  systematically.  We  can  say  that  Jeet  Kune  Do,  which  Bruce  Lee  created,  closely  combines  Wing  Chun  with  the  other  martial  art  styles  he  studied  creating  the  main  core  and  foundations  of  his  fighting  principals.

YanXia  Cave  is  made  from  the  towering  rock  which  was  formed  naturally.  It  is  the  original  place  of  QuanZhen  group  of  Taoism.  In  1167,  WangChongYang  (the  founder  of  QuanZhen  group  of  Taoism)  came  from  XianYang  to  the  east  ZhongNan  Mountain.  He  gathered  disciples  and  taught  them  Taoism  in  the  cave.  There  were  seven  disciples  including  QiuChuJi.  They  were  called  the  Seven  Immortals  on  the  Sea.  Now  their  stone  statues,  bronze  tablets,  imperial  edict  tablets,  well  and  tombs  are  protected.

This  area  is  the  birth  place  of  Taoism.  There  is  a  mountain  cave  not  far  from  school  (called  Yan  Xia  cave)  where  it  is  said  the  founder  of  Taoism  meditated  for  many  years.  There  are  eight  statues,  "The  Eight  Immortals,"  of  important  Taoists  inside  this  cave  today  as  a  mark  of  respect.  

 

Ma  Gu  Temple  

Yue  Gu  Temple  was  the  place  for  MaGu's  meditation.  In  1116,  emperor  Hui  Zong  gave  the  title  of  Immortal  XuMiao  to  MaGu.  From  then  on  she  was  worshipped  by  the  local  people.  She  became  the  symbol  of  long  life,  health,  wit  and  purity.  BiXiaYuanJun  came  here  from  Tai  Mountain  and  built  72  YueGu  palaces  and  temples  with  108  rooms.  Some  local  scenic  spots  include  MaGu  Temple,  MaGu  tomb,  SanGuan  palace,  CaiShen  palace,  YueLao  ancestral  temple,  Hua  spring  and  BiXia  pavillion.  

Nine  Dragon  Pools  
Nine-dragons  pool  On  the  north  of  KunYu  Mountain  there  is  a  steep  cliff.  In  the  middle  of  the  cliff,  there  are  nine  differently  sized  natural  stone  ponds.  The  diameter  of  the  biggest  one  is  6  meters,  3  meters  deep.  
It  looks  like  a  dragon  is  climbing  the  mountain.  The  legend  says  that  there  was  a  dragon  who  broke  the  law  in  heaven,  after  which  he  was  banished  to  this  mountain.  The  water  in  the  ponds  is  clear,  so  you  can  see  the  bottom.  The  Nine  Dragon  waterfall  is  1000  meters  high.  A  waterfall  of  this  height  is  rare  in  ShanDong.  The  main  scenic  spots  include  the  Nine  Dragon  waterfall,  the  Dragon  King  palace,  Heaven  Pond  and  Immortal  Stone.

1.  Object  of  Enrollment  on  kung  fu  training  

The  academy  provides  instruction  to  beginner  as  well  as  more  advanced  students  who  are  already  proficient  in  martial  arts  and  seeking  additional  or  higher-level  training.

a.                  Students  who  are  healthy  in  both  mentality  and  physical  situation  and  love  martial  arts,  regardless  of  your  gender,  age,  religion,  country,  are  all  welcomed  to  come  here  to  learn  the  Shaolin  martial  arts.

b.                  Students  who  have  never  studied  martial  arts  before  should  not  expect  to  perform  intermediate  or  advanced  kung  fu  in  one  or  two  months.  

  c.              Students  who  have  already  seriously  trained  in  martial  arts  for  several  years  or  more  can  expect  to  learn  and  perform  some  of  the  more  difficult  kung  fu  movements,  combat  skills,  higher  internal  kung  fu  as  well  as  developing  the  underlying  morality  of  the  martial  arts.  We  also  welcome  advanced  students  wishing  to  learn  through  challenging  the  masters.  

d.                Don't  worry  about  age  holding  you  back  if  you  are  middle  aged  or  elderly.  Many  Chinese  martial  arts  are  suitable  for  middle  age  and  old  age  people,  such  as  Ancient  Qi  Gong  (Ba  duan  jin,  yi  jin  jing,  Five  animal  style  and  meditation  that  is  not  only  good  for  health,  but  also  helpful  for  your  level  of  Kung  Fu  and  for  healing  illnesses),  Tai  Chi  fist  /  straight  sword  /  fan,  Xingyi  fist,  Bagua  palm,  Ba  Chi  fist  and  mantis  boxing.    Training  schedules  and  exercises  are  customized  to  fit  to  you,  according  to  your  needs  and  abilities.  There  is  no  maximum  of  age  to  come,  but  there  is  minimum  of  it.  You  have  to  get  an  escort  if  you  are  not  able  to  travel  alone.  

e.                  Longer  training  periods  (after  you  have  learnt  for  5  years  here)  are  available  for  those  who  find  they  want  to  advance  their  skills  to  higher  levels  in  martial  arts.  However,  the  decision  is  made  by  the  masters  as  to  whether  they  will  extend  training  periods,  according  to  the  student's  apparent  skills,  trustworthiness,  potential  and  interest  shown.    

2.  Preparation  before  You  Come  to  the  Academy:  

a.                                      Please  fill  the  application  form  and  pay  the  application  fee  according  to  the  website  1-6  months  before  you  come  to  the  academy.  We  will  confirm  your  information  after  we  get  your  application  and  application  fee  and  will  make  some  preparations  for  your  arrival.    

b.                on  Visa:  You  can  apply  for  a  tourist  visa  before  you  come  to  China.  If  you  need  any  help  extending  it,  we  can  help  you  extend  it  to  more  than  10  months  when  you  get  to  the  academy.  We  can  also  help  you  change  your  visa  to  a  student  one  if  necessary,  year  by  year.  However,  please  be  aware  that  the  maximum  duration  for  a  stay  in  this  Academy  is  five  years.  

Many  students  want  to  get  a  student  visa  when  they  come  here,  and  it  is  a  requirement  that  you  obtain  an  invitation  letter  and  the  JW202  form  (when  pplying  for  the  student  visa).  Once  you  apply  for  your  student  visa  the  cademy  would  help  send  out  both  of  these  two  forms  to  you.  However,  it  can  be  very  difficult  for  us  to  get  the  JW202  and  is  an  extremely  lengthy  process.  In  the  past  we  have  also  had  some  problems  with  people  who  in  the  end  for  what  ever  reason  didn’t  turn  up.  Unfortunately  we  had  already  spent  a  lot  of  time  and  money  applying  for  their  JW202  forms.  Therefore,  we  strongly  suggest  that  you  apply  for  a  tourist  visa  instead  which  really  is  the  easiest  way.  If  you  need  any  help  applying  for  your  tourist  visa,  such  as  with  the  invitation  letter,  please  let  us  know  and  we  will  fax  it  to  you  or  send  it  to  you  through  the  post  office.

c.                                          New  students  who  are  saving  to  come  to  the  academy  have  asked  if  there  is  anything  they  should  do  to  prepare  themselves.  The  best  thing  is  to  prepare  yourself  physically:  proper  diet,  sprinting  and  long  distance  running  (2  km  a  day  or  so),  swimming,  cycling,  skipping  ,  ping  pong,  push-ups,  sit-ups,  etc…  stamina  training  will  help  new  students  learn  martial  arts  faster  and  easier.  Any  sport  or  hobby  that  breaks  down  muscle  tissue  so  you  can  rebuild  it,  stretches  and  strengthens  your  muscles,  improves  your  breathing  and  enjoyable  to  perform,  is  good  to  do.
