The camp requires full-time on-site boarding. This special training camp is also available for anyone who is intrigued by high level Shaolin discipline, and is willing to meet tougher life challenges.
“This Shaolin Warrior Intensive Training Camp is only for those who are devoted to the true essence of Martial Arts-Shaolin Way and willing to travel an extra mile in life challenges.” explains a manager of the Institute, “The applicants must not only be interested in personal safety, combat skills, but have leadership personality, good character and indomitable spirit.”
The full-time Shaolin Apprentice Warrior Training Camp starts the three-month training test with the initial 8-day and 8-night intensive training. A few Shaolin Kungfu apprentice warriors who are selected will continue to the pre-discipleship training for final Shaolin discipleship selection designed for future instructors and masters enabling them to become the next top generation of Shaolin warrior disciples.
The Shaolin Apprentices in the Discipleship program will study directly under the two descendants of the original Shaolin family, DeYang and DeRu who themselves were close disciples of the Great Grandmaster of the generation from the Shaolin Temple, China Shi SuXi. It is a very rare opportunity for any serious martial artist or Kungfu master to study with them.
There are other two-month youth and adult summer training camps available to all levels of Kungfu or any other styles of martial artists. During these two- month-long training camps, students will have an opportunity to train at the Shaolin Temple and other institutions in China with a few other well known masters in addition to studying with the two original Shaolin Temple Family Grand Masters.
Students in the part-time Shaolin youth training camp without boarding (available to all ages) will focus on the true original Shaolin youth training experience. They may choose five weeks training in total starting from June 6. This training is also available on a week to week basis.
There will also be other Shaolin Kungfu instructors and Masters training program for qualified students. Every camp student will be given the opportunity to experience the two weeks Shaolin Pre-Disciple Warrior Training at the Shaolin Temple in China from July 17 to August 2, depending on the number of full time camp registrants.
Full & partial scholarships are available on a limited basis for those qualified candidates who meet the requirements of either academic-character scholarship or financial-character scholarship. Please contact the Shaolin Institute for more details (contact information below).
