How can I join your classes?
Attendance to the Dojo (Monday to Friday) is granted prior booking. You can book your class by contacting us by mail, through Facebook or simply by texting us at +61416453936. Students may decide to purchase a Pass-Card for multiple entries or membership formulas: this gives them access to discounted prices.
If you are not totally sure about the right class for you, feel free to book an appointment with us: we will give you all the necessary information, whilst you enjoy the peace and tranquillity of our dojo. Our Dojo is open for visits on Saturdays (between 9:30 and 16:30) strictly by appointment.
Who can join your Kung fu Academy?
Minimum age for enrolling: 14 years old.
If you don’t know where to start, we strongly recommend you to join our Basic Kung fu class, which is meant to take you to the highest levels of the Shaolin Martial Arts world step by step, from the first punch to the highest kick. If, instead, you are confident to learn a specific style, welcome on board and let’s start training.
*Shaolin kung fu is a complete way of living. Differently to widespread fighting sports, we teach you to master your body and mind before acting. This is why we prefer to meet you in person before you begin your training.
I have many years of experience in Martial Arts and I’d like to skip the basics…
Admittance into advanced styles, forms or weapons is dependent on grades. Whatever your style is (Aikido, Karate, Judo, Brazilian Jujitsu, MMA or other), you are welcome to visit our dojo first, to discuss with us the specific goals you are searching for.
What’s the training like?
Our aim is to provide you with the most genuine and committed preparation in Shaolin Kung fu training. However, to ensure students are provided with an increasing training experience, and in order to avoid over-training, our teaching style is set to a medium-level for the first academic year.
All other experienced Kungfu athletes who train independently and regularly and desire to have a real Shaolin experience are invited to attend the advanced-level schedule starting from 5 AM. This is totally up to how hard you want to challenge yourself.
How much does it cost?
You can have an idea of the Academy fees by visiting our E-Shop site. There are not enrollment fees and purchasing the official uniform and shoes is totally up to you.
