From all the feedback we've received, past participants tell us that our Kung Fu Trips are the best they have ever taken - in their entire lives!
There are many reasons for them to feel this way… after all, it's a multi-dimensional experience… just read on for details…
First, it's the people on the trip. You'll definitely feel safe on this trip because you'll be travelling with Grand Masters, Masters, and Instructors of the martial arts… they are all leaders, pay attention, and love to share their knowledge and experience. You'll benefit a lot even from just side conversations! Everyone is respectful, focused on harmony, and fun! When you're travelling with confident, playful people, life is really good. Second, our main leader Grand Master Meng is fluent in the two main dialects of Chinese: Mandarin and Cantonese, plus he knows the culture and traditions. This is the best - travelling with an insider who can bridge the Eastern and Western culture - plus there will be professional tour guides as well. Third, it's going to be a family-friendly, informative, and positive experience. Participants range in age from 8 years old to senior citizens.
Fourth - it's the destinations! We will be visiting amazing locations - from cultural government center of Beijing to the Mecca of martial arts the Shaolin Temple to the modern financial center of China in Shanghai and finish in the international city of Hong Kong. In one trip, you can experience the whole of China, from an 8,000 year old village to modern-day skyscrapers in Shanghai. Plus, we'll have daily opportunities to improve our health, self-defense, and wisdom through the martial arts…
And if all that weren't enough - one of the most famous names in martial arts is Shaolin. For over 1,500 years the monks of the Shaolin Temple have been influencing the world of the martial arts… and on this trip, you'll be able to train like a monk, behind the scenes. This isn't a typical, for-the-public-only community.
And finally, the best part of this whole trip is the convenience. For around $250 a day, your air travel, bullet train, river cruise ship, first class hotel and busses, world-class American and Chinese meals… plus plenty of opportunities to buy direct in China for literally pennies on the dollar…
Don't wait another 2-3 years for a trip like this to come along… talk to your instructor TODAY about reserving your spot. You need to make your initial deposit to hold your reservation ASAP.Balance is due by April 10th. Call 937 236 6385
