Wayne Mulei, 36, American, Male, May 2015—July 2015. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org My interest in the Maling school started with the website, student reviews, and videos on Youtube. However, my decision to actually come to this school was greatly assisted through the email correspondence with Lisa. Her emails were very encouraging to me. She answered any and all questions I had in a prompt, friendly, and professional manner. Through the correspondence I really got the feeling that I was going to a good, well organized school. Also Lisa’s assistance in helping me acquire a Visa, and coordinating airport pickup and dropoff was profoundly reassuring.
The school facility itself met and exceeded any and all expectations that I had. The rooms are neat and clean, with ample storage areas. The restrooms are of western style, with individual showers. There is always plenty of drinking water and the food is always hot and tasty.
The training is rigorous and challenging. With a variety of Kung fu styles being taught, the student gets a chance to try them all out and see which is more to his or her interest. Though the training is intense at times, there was never a time where I felt unsafe or asked to do something that would cause a serious injury.
The instructors are extremely patient and very knowledgeable. The instructors welcome questions and do not mind demonstrating a technique multiple time until the student grasps the idea. As a student I feel that I was pushed mentally and physically not only to to achieve my goals, but also to realize my highest potential as a martial arts practitioner.
I would highly recommend this school to anyone interested in practicing Kung fu in China. From the novice to the experienced practitioner, all can benefit greatly from training at the Maling Shaolin Kung fu Academy.
