How is the Geography position and surroundings of the academy?
We have 2 schools now. Both are located on the ancient road to the historic Mountain Wudang, which is famous as it is the birthplace of Daoism. Both of the 2 academies are close to Taichi Lake, Yuzhen Gong (the palace for Zhang Sanfeng) and the first Gate “Xuanyue Men” which is known as the gate where you can meet immortals. The old academy which is now mainly for the 3-year traditional Kungfu class enjoys the exclusive use of the Yuan he Temple (one of the oldest temple in Wudang Mountain area) as its main training area. And the new school is more peaceful and calm, mainly for those who want to keep healthy. It is 15 minutes in a bus between the 2 schools.
   
Is it possible to help us to buy the ticket when we leave from the academy?
Train and airplane ticket offices are available in Wudangshan town. The staff in the school can help you to arrange your return trip as well as booking tickets.
   
Is the internet accessible from the academy?
Yes, all the rooms are equipped with high speed cable internet. Students can bring their own laptop and enjoy the internet at any time, no matter it is for work, study or entertainment. And the wireless routers are offered for free in each room.
   
Can I work in the academy or nearby during my study in order to have some extra money?
The part time job positions in the academy are very limited and they are usually to help these students who have strong desire of studying Kungfu but can't afford it. And Wudang shan town is too small to find a suitable job.
   
I want to come to your academy to study kungfu, how do I pay my expenses?
Most foreign students transfer their money to our academy's bank account after deciding what they want to study and how long they plan to stay. In our opinion, this is the easiest, safest, and the most convenient option. And please make sure that entering bank account information that must be the same as what we provide. Of course, paying by cash upon arrival is acceptable too, but we advise to use Visa and Mastercards to withdraw money here in Wudang. There are branches of different Banks also with ATMs here, all of which accept visa and mastercards and debit and credit cards. One point to be reminded Please be sure to be very careful if travelling with large amount of cash. Travelling with large amount of cash is not encouraged.

What is the academy's food like?
Considering some people are vegetarians, so we prepared different dishes. Every meal includes one soup, two vegetable dish and one with meat. The flavors and style vary with every meal. We have special chef who can customize the meals for students with special food requirements. We think our food is the best among Wudang kungfu schools.
   
Are there places nearby for shopping and daily necessities?
Yes, you can get most daily necessities from the shop in our academy. Of course, it is also very convenient to go to the supermarkets in the town (roughly 2km from the school) and there are lots of other stores of all kinds to be found there. The academy provides sheets and beddings. For uniforms and training shoes, you can buy in the academy.
   
Do I get to choose what I study while at the academy?
Yes, you may select what programs you like from those offered. If you are not sure about study contents, Master Chen will discuss with you and will give you the appropriate suggestion according to your interests and needs.
   
I don't have any experience of Kungfu, what should I learn first and can I study Wudang Kungfu very well there?

What should I prepare in order to go to China? How about visa extension there?
All people intending to enter The People's Republic of China from outside countries must have a valid passport and a Chinese visa. If it is necessary, we can help to do an invitation letter for your visa application. Any other circumstances or special needs for visa application can be communicated with us. A study visa (Type-X2) or a tourism visa (Type-L) is suggested to apply for in your country first, as for the allowed staying time in China, don't worry, we can help extend your visa if you decide to learn for longer time while it is close to expire. Mt Wudang is one of the spots scenic in China and welcomes friends from all around the world. It is very easy to extend your visa here and we are happy to help you with this. Non-citizens of China are allowed to stay in China for one year at most. After one year, they are required to leave the country to apply for a new visa. Most students who stay here for more than one year simply travel to Hong Kong or other neighbouring countries to do so.
   
How is the weather in Wudang Shan? When is the best time to go for training?
Wudang Shan is located in the northwest part of Hubei Province which is in the middle of China. Here the change among four seasons is distinct. The Summer is generally twenty-five to thirty-five degrees. Spring and Autumn are mild and very comfortable. The Winter is usually about six to fifteen degrees. Each Season has its own advantages. Any time is great. By the way, as in our academy we offer one-on-one teaching, so you can decide your training time. We warmly welcome your coming at any time.

Considering it is a long trip, traveling with too much stuff is not encouraged. You can purchase almost everything in the town here. However, enough clothes are still necessary. When you prepare clothes, please make sure to be mindful of the different seasons. For example, bring some light, loose and comfortable fitting clothes for hot summer; some thicker to keep you warm enough but will also permit your training for cold winter.
