Date: April 2011 to October 2011
Length of Training: 6 Months
I spent 6 months training at Wudang Mountain Kung Fu Academy, from April 2011 to October 2014. When I arrived at the academy I had a little martial arts experience, I did Qi Gong for two years and some others that was a long time ago.
Although I had to practice Qi Gong two years, but unfortunately I did not find the feeling, So before I went to the academy I set myself goals, to find the Qi, to eat healthier, to learn as much as possible and most of all to learn how to relax, I had no idea what to expect when I arrived and was nervous. I arrived at the academy and my nerves went away quite quickly every one was friendly and wanted to meet the new student, David gave me a tour of the school and showed me where I was going to sleep every one was really nice it was a good start, then I met Master Yang and Master Yang, both Wudang Masters I was nervous of them but they are very nice people and really helpful .
To be honest training at the start it was very hard for me, Daily 5:00, I have to get up, Master Chen told me that morning fresh air, this time to practice Qi Gong is good, After a month, I felt Qi flow in the body, It’s very great! The meditation and Tai Chi plus all the training has helped me to learn how to relax and now I don’t get stressed very often, not like when I arrived !! I am a lot happier with life and myself I have confidence and believe in myself which I didn’t when I came here so I am very happy with this part of the training. It has changed my life being at this academy.
I trained hard and reached all my goals, I had lots of ups and downs over the year but I had a lot of help from the Masters to keep me motivated and keep me training well, the students help each other and encourage one and other. The food was great, there was enough and it tastes good what more do you need ? I think the facilities are good, the rooms are large enough for two people to stay, we trained out side most of the time and there is plenty of space around the academy to train, there is internet in the rooms if you want it, every thing you need is there.
Thank you everyone at Wudang Mountain Kung Fu Academy.
