All prices includes training, 3 meals every day, accommodation and WiFi. For longer periods of stay at the academy (1 month or more), everybody pays the first month in cash when they arrive. This is a try out period so you can have a taste of the life at the school. This money will then be subtracted from the total sum if you decide to stay.

 

There is a 1000 RMB booking deposit. Because some people have said that they would come but then never showed up, and at the same time we have turned down other people. This is a way for the Academy to make it easier to plan and to sort out undecided students. The deposit is payable to Master Tang Li Long’s bank account, detailed on the Contact page.  Make sure you save your receipt. Copy, print it, scan it and send it to us in a email, then we will send you the invitation letter. The 1000 RMB booking deposit will then be subtracted from the total amount upon arrival.

 

What’s included:

Accommodation, Food and Tuition. Three meals are provided everyday, Chinese style, mostly vegetarian dishes. Students should be prepared to meet the simple living conditions here, bunk beds, shared shower rooms and squat toilets, insects and the humidity (especially in the Summer).

 

What’s not included:

You need training clothes and shoes. You can bring your own or buy some tailor made from the shops downtown. A top and trousers (thin fabric) will typically cost 200 – 300 RMB. Special training equipment or medicines for the skill training are not included. Transport fees are also not included. The bus to the school from the Wudang Shan town-centre costs 5 RMB. The training can be quite tough, so you might want to bring some extra proteins and minerals.

Important: Please be aware of school holidays in line with official Chinese public holidays, such as the dragon-boat festival and the mid-autumn moon festival, when Tang Shifu may be away. The main holiday is in the Winter, usually from end-December to the beginning of March in the New Year, when Shifu is away.

For a month-long stay, Shifu may well be away for a week or so within that month. In general, despite the time when Tang Shifu is away, the amount of content learned by students should not be compromised. Shifu may organize additional training on evenings/weekends to ensure that the material is covered. Short-term students (staying for one/two weeks) should get in touch to be sure that Shifu is around for the duration of their stay. (Coming to the school means that we are all in understanding of this and there should be no further negotiation for rate-reductions or extension of stay on this basis.)

For long-term students (staying for at least 6-months), should the need arise to leave the school in the middle of one’s stay, be it for one/two months, or if unforeseen circumstances mean that one needs to postpone one’s time at the school, Tang Shifu will be happy to discuss details when such a situation arises to come to a mutually agreeable arrangement, although it may be necessary to vacate one’s room during the time that one is away.
