    I recently started reading your blog and found them very interesting. I am most interested in current status of martial arts in China. I do have a question/request to you since you seem to be based in Chengdu. Do you know or can you recommend a good traditional Yang style TaiJi master in Chengdu?

    Thank you. Keep up the good work on your blog.

    Cheers,

    Hi Sascha,

    I’m so glad finding your blog. My name is Dhanny, from Jakarta, Indonesia. I’m a 7th generation of chinese descendant here, so i cannot speak chinese at all.

    And why I just so glad been able to connect with you, well, I’m on progress of building an Indonesia Kungfu International School here. Actually the idea start from my father. The school generally is a public general school with kung-fu as extracurricular activities, its a boarding school so for the interested students, they will have plenty of time to be serious learner. And what we mean by kungfu is not solely “wushu”, but we believe the original idea as we understood it. And while we had cooperation with the Shaolin Temple, its also not a budhist monk school.

    I will be in chengdu on june 9th till 11th, before leaving to dengfeng. My stop in Chengdu as i bring my 10years old son is to see the panda, and also try to find a kungfu teacher lady (emei styles) as legends and popular stories says that Emey styles were practices mostly by women. It will be a great compliment for the Shaolin styles (especially originated from the temples, where monks are usually men) to be available at my school.

    Please email me, then I can send you the picture of our school progress and location, its in a beautiful surrounding, with mountains view and air freshness.

    Best Regards,
    Dhanny

    Hey Sascha,

    I just found your blog and I think its very cool! I’m currently backpacking through China and would like to join a monastery for a week or two to practice Kung Fu and meditate. This is not so much to become proficient in it (for what can be learned in 1-2 weeks?) but more so for the genuine cultural experience of living in a monastery and learning martial arts. Therefore, I was wondering if you could recommend a place 🙂 I love your blog and will continue following it. In any case, I plan to return to China for a longer time than I have now (1month) as I fell in love with the country. So even if I can’t use the information on this trip, there will be subsequent ones 🙂
    Thank you very much!
    Manu

    Hi Manu,

    There are a couple of options, but a “monastery kungfu school” is pretty much a dream and not much of a reality. there are a couple possible locations nearby, if you make it to Sichuan, drop me a line via email, i have it above in the comments

    Hey. The name is Richard, I currently live in Arizona although sometimes I wish I could be in Tokyo, but I just wanted help finding a legit sensei or someone to train me on kung fu. I want to do close combat, around the style of shotokan, and wing chun. I just wanna have a real master who is passionate about it, and really show me the art of it. Sounds funny but I would like that karate kid relationship. But if you know of what I should do, like I said I’m in AZ but I’m really passionate and dedicated to learning kung fu.

    Hi Sascha,

    I’m an international school teacher living in Guangzhuo. Although my first time in China was in Chengdu in 2003. I studied at Xinan Minzu Daxue at the time.

    I study Wing Chun and Bak Mei in Guangzhuo and am familiar with a very small slice of the martial arts community. If you make it out this way send me an email and I can get you an introduction into the Martyr’s Park community which includes some well know styles like Taiji, Bagua, and Xingyi; but also includes local styles and some lesser known styles: Bak Mei, Long Ying, Choy Li Fut, Tai Xu Quan, Hap Ga, Ma Bian Quan, Wu Dang Quan; and I can give you an introduction to people who could get you around the Wing Chun community.

    Best Wishes,

    Grant Brown

    Please be sure to look into Bajiquan. Obviously Wu family really dominate the market, so to speak, but it would be interesting to see what you write.

  12. Marc Meyer says:

    Hi Sascha! Wonder if you would consider featuring my book in one of your blogs: http: //www.marcmeyer-books.com/bios: Thanks so much, Marc Meyer

    Hi, I found your website today and I think your project is fantastic. You seek the truth about Kung Fu and you want to travel around China to meet authentical people to discover authentical real kung du (I hope it still exists). I am also interested in learning traditional kung fu, which is linked to Qigong and Chan meditation (I practice all) and I think Kung fu is one of treasure of my life, it always inspires me and makes me mentally, phisically and spiritually strong.
    I hope to hear from you soon, to read your book and, if possible, make contact (like facebook) to know more about you and your personal experience. Omitofu

    Hi Sascha, I have been to a few martial arts schools within China (4), you should have a check out http://www.kungfuschoolchina.com it’s a really good school. They train 8 hours a day and the atmosphere is very focused. It is relatively small and so has more of a family feel about it.

    Just thought I would let you know.
