Length of stay: 5 months; January 2013 - June 2013
Ever since I was a young child I was interested in learning martial arts. However, I never took the opportunity to learn martial arts until I came to this school in January 2013. 
Initially I was a little hesitant to come after I had made arrangements to study at the school. I was afraid that maybe I was not in the physical shape that would be required for the training. However, those fears were unfounded. No matter what your fitness or martial art skill level is, the masters will adapt the training to suit you. That doesn't mean that it's easy, the masters will sometimes push you beyond the limits you think you are capable of, but I think the training is suitable for anyone who is determined to work hard.   
I learned Shaolin Basics, Traditional Forms, Staff and Sword Forms, Tai Chi, and Sanda. I really enjoyed the experience. Not only did I learn a great deal of physical skills, it was also a period of self-growth where I gained more self-discipline and confidence in myself. 
During my stay, I trained under several masters: Master Shi Yan Peng (Du Shīfu), Master Shi Yan Zheng (Han Shīfu) and Master Shi Yan Jiong (Zhào Shīfu). 
I became very attached to my masters. I think the most difficult part of being here was saying goodbye to them. It is hard for me to explain the relationships that I formed with my masters, but I feel that they are more than just my teachers -- they are friends, family, and people whom I love. It might sound strange, but I really felt a deep connection with them. I hope I will remain in contact with them and see them again in the future!
Also, many people from all over the world come to train here, most stay for only a short-time and a few students are here long-term. It's been great to meet so many people and form friendships with them. 
It's amazing how quickly time can fly. My five months at the school are complete and yet I almost feel like I've barely been here. I am very grateful for this experience! I hope all students who attend this school enjoy their time here. I wish the masters all the best in their future endeavors. Thank you for everything Qūfù Shào lín Wǔshù Xué Xiào!
