The Summer is generally pretty warm. Spring and fall are mild and very comfortable. The winter is generally about zero to two degrees.
All persons intending to enter The People's Republic of China from outside countries must first have a valid passport and a Chinese visa. We can help you with obtaining your Chinese visa by providing you with an invitation letter to hand in with your visa application. Any other circumstances or special needs for visa application can be communicated to our via e-mail.
Train and airplane ticket offices are available in Dengfeng City .We can easily arrange your return trip from here
Any time is great. Each season has its benefits
Yes, Shaolin Temple is a World Cultural Heritage site and a famous scenic spot for tourists, so there are branches of the Bank of China, the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, the Construction Bank of China, the Agricultural Bank of China and the Bank of China Post, all of which have ATMs, and most of which accept foreign cards.
Most foreign students transfer their money to our academy bank account after diciding what they want to study and how long they paln to stay . In our opinion, this the easiest ,safest and the most convenient option.In addition, you can use Visa and Mastercards to withdraw money here in Shaolin
Every meal includes a soup, two vegetable dishes and one meat dish. The flavours and style vary with every meal. We have special chef who can customize the meals for students with special food requirements. We think our food is the best among Shaolin kungfu schools.
All meals have vegetarian options. Generally there are about 5-8 plates of different foods to choose from during meals, with only one or two of them consisting of meat. Any special dietary concerns should be communicated to Master Yuan before arrival to better accomodate students.
There is no real need to prepare yourself physically before arrival.
Yes, you may select what programs you like from those offered and we will help you make an appropriate study plan
Yes, we have rooms with king size beds, with air conditioning and private rest room.

From Beijing, Shanghai, Hongkong have to fly to Zhengzhou flights directly, is the most convenient. You can arrive in Zhengzhou from Beijing or Shanghai by train. We will be at the Zhengzhou airport or train station to meet you.
Students who plan on bringing laptops can have internet set up in their rooms (note: this is not a service provided by the school, so all costs must be covered by students). Also, there are many internet bars located conveniently in town that are very inexpensive (about 3 RMB per hour).
Make sure to be mindful of the seasons. In Summer, make sure to bring light, loose, comfortable fitting clothes. For winter, bring heavier clothing that will keep you warm but will also permit movement. Students are encouraged to wear low shoes during training.
Most students that come to the school do not get vaccinations before coming. This is up to your personal preference.
Early morning training begins at 6:30 AM with qi gong, tai ji, and standing meditation. The morning class is from 8:30 to 11:30 and is generally comprised of one to two hours of basics (including kicks, punches, coordination drills, strength and flexibility training, san da, etc.). After basics, students continue to learn new movement from what they are studying or drill what they have already learned either as a group or individually. Afternoon training is from 3:00 to 5:00 and is run similarly to the morning class. Meditation is everynight at 8:00. (Note: class times change with the change of seasons.)
It is very easy to extend your visa here in town. Non-citizens of China are allowed to stay in China for one year. After one year, they are required to leave the country in order to apply for a new visa. Most students who stay for more than one year simply travel to Hong Kong or other neighboring countries to do so.
Language is never a problem and our masters can speak English
There are no opportunities for work at the school and as Shaolin is located in a small city , there are no work opprtunities in city
Despite what travel books say, often times using traveller's checks can be inconvenient, difficult, and time consuming. The Bank of China located in Shaolin only exchanges currency, not traveller's checks. Traveller's checks can be exchanged in Zhengzhou, the nearby city. Many students open bank accounts and then have their money wired to them from home. Please be sure to be careful if travelling with large sums of money. Travelling with large sums of money is not encouraged. There are many ATM's in town that accept Visa and Mastercard debit and credit cards.
