Chenjiagou Training Immersion Programme

 

Venue : Chenjiagou Tian Cai Taiji Mansion, Chen village, Henan Province, China

Chief Instructor : Grandmaster Zhu Tian Cai

Instructors : Zhu Bao Ling, Zhu Xiang Yi and Zhu Xiang Hua

 


There will be 4 hours of training everyday. There will be 2 hours of instructed training in the morning and another 2 hours in the afternoon. You will be expected to do self-training in the evenings for at least 2 hours as well.

Please bring your own toiletries and sufficient change of clothes, tee-shirts, loose track pants, flat-soled shoes, jackets and warmers.

The fees (as listed below) will cover all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), your accommodation and training. You will stay with Grandmaster Zhu’s family in their home which can accommodate up to 20 persons. The rooms are single beds with air-conditioning and heating. There are common bathrooms on each floor. Linen and blankets are provided. Meals will be home-cooked prepared in the northern china cuisine style (dong bei cai yao). This is generally those big, white buns you see in those martial arts movies (man tou), noodles, dumplings (jiao zhi) and cold, tossed vegetable salads. The dressing for the cold dishes generally consists of black vinegar, garlic, soya sauce, sesame oil. The food is usually cooked as a soup and with minimal oil. Don’t expect Starbucks coffee, alcohol or the like there. But good, healthy chinese tea is freely available. I can’t resist saying this but Chinese tea is really very good for health. It possesses not only anti-oxidizing properties but is also rather detoxifying for the body. And it does help to regulate those hunger pangs!
