How can I join your classes?
Attendance to the Dojo (Monday to Friday) is granted only to Students/Members with a valid Pass-Card. You can purchase your Card directly at our Dojo on Saturdays (see timetable) by appointment, texting 0416453936 or simply by mailing us.
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. Enrollment day is Saturday afternoon (between 9:30 and 16:30) by appointment.
Who can join your Kung fu Academy?
Minimum age for enrolling: 13 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 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 students 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.
