Many people, both Chinese and foreigners, have been seduced by kung fu through the films of Bruce Lee, Donnie Yen, Jackie Chan, etc. And many people have dreamed of practicing this ancient martial art one day. However, going to China to learn kung fu at a shaolin school can seem to be an impossible adventure… Impossible? Certainly not.

  • positive review   Jérôme Drouard Grâce à Odile Zhang nous avons (mon fils et moi-même) eu l'honneur de connaître Shi Miao Hai. Une personne exceptionnelle par son enseignement, son humanité, sa gentillesse, sa bienveillance, son art, sa transmission, et ses nombreuses qualités. C'est une chance de pouvoir passer du temps avec Shi Miao Hai. Une valeur inestimable... mais le mieux reste encore de le vivre en passant du temps à ses côtés. Merci.

  • positive review   Before giving my personal feelings on this, I would like to state: If you are wondering to go to china to train your kung fu, do not hesitate. Is a perspective changing experience. Is beautiful. Having many years holding a position in Fawang not only as teacher but also organising, the experience Shi Miao Hai has to share is overwhelming. If you have the opportunity, don't let it go. ========================================== I still remember the first time I came to meet him. It was late 2016/ early 2017. I got impressed. After training for more than 16 years different martial arts, I think i was already understanding what a human be is able to do. This was proved completely wrong when i had my very first class with Shi Miao Hai. I would like to be able to understand him even more, but the language barrier is strong. Still, he is really expressive, enough to understand his simplicity, authenticity and passion. He loves Kungfu and buddist-chinese culture way more than any other person I ever met. And you can see that in each of his movements and expressions. He loves it and he lives it. That put him in a level that I cannot really understand. Most of the times it comes easy to me to guess and understand how to develop a skill that some one else has and I don't. Most of the times i can clearly see a path. With him, there is a dense cloud that does not allow me to even guess. This simplicity, honesty and authenticity in his character, this indomitable passion towards kung fu and life, and his (since my humble position in the scale of knowledge) unlimited knowledge, and still highly human, makes him more than just a master. He is a natural guide and a beautiful person. To have him as a friend, guide and example is an honour. ========================================== About my experience learning in china with him, i think is enough to say that each time I feel my moral go down on my training, I just need to remember this to recover.
