For five years, the Shengjin Shan Kung Fu Academy will have a special retreat that focuses on the Martial Arts and related spiritual practices. Aspiring martial artists have the amazing opportunity to visit Weihai in Shandong, China. Here, a well-trained team of experts will provide excellent training and guidance for the entire duration of the retreat.
Kung Fu has its roots in the Chinese philosophy of Wu Wei, which translates into 'action in stillness'. This is the philosophy the retreat delves into. During the retreat, students will engage in meditation, breathing challenges, and sparring sessions to tap into the underlying power and strength of the body while connecting to one’s true spiritual potential. The atmosphere created will give the practitioners a unique chance to open up and discover their innermost strengths.
The retreat’s duration will include multiple classes, workshops, lectures, and discussions on Every-day- related topics like diet, living and training techniques. In addition to the physical training, participants will also have access to cultural and language classes, helping to deepen their understanding of the historic practices behind Kung Fu.
Over the course of the 5 year retreat, the facilitators will provide absolute understanding and knowledge on traditional martial arts practices and related spiritual philosophies. The purpose of the retreat is to help students reach a level of great insight and self-discipline — enhancing their knowledge, deepening their understanding of the legacy of martial arts, and advancing their skills to new levels.
At the end of the retreat, students will have a full understanding of Kung Fu and its principles, building an unbeatable foundation for a lifetime of practice. Additionally, the commitment to the retreat will help students build up invaluable mental and physical strength, offering them the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of their inner self.
For martial artists, this 5-year retreat will prove to be a remarkable life-transforming experience — an opportunity to open up to the legacy and beauty of Kung Fu, as well as to expand their knowledge of its cultural and philosophical depths. Here then is an experience worth exploring and engaging in with an open mind and heart.
