View Full Version : Chance To Go To China
10-10-2001, 11:12 PM
My Sifu has some interesting and exciting news in class on Tuesday night. He and his school (which includes me of course!) have been invited to go to China next summer for nine days and visit a Shaolin Temple, the Wushu School, see a Wushu demo by the National Team, etc. The trip would include all meals, hotels, air fare, etc. for $1900. Seems like a great deal to me, and I would love to go, but my wife and I are planning a trip to Singapore (She is from there orginally) and i'm not sure I can swing both trips in a year. I'd love to go to China and work on kung fu, but I have to convince her of that. Since she has studyied Eagle Claw as well, I have some hope. Anyway, any thoughts on a trip like this one? Anyone been on a trip like this?

Good luck in convincing your wife.
If you can only swing the Singapore trip, maybe you can do some research and find out if there are any unique kung fu training opportunities you can pursue there.
If you can't find any kung fu, maybe you can see or learn something of the local silat, just as a cool martial art/cultural experience.
I don't get mad.
I get stabby.

My ex-girlfriend is from Singapore, and while I was debating on visiting her, she told me that there is a temple on the island and numerous kung fu schools. If you want to look one up, email me and I'll have her do some research for you.
"I'll be too busy lookin' good!"

Yeah, I thought about seeing what I could find in Singapore in the Martial Arts area, but I have a feeling that if we go there we'll be mostly visiting her friends and family, which is fine. But if I go to China, I'll get a chance to work out for sure. Plus, it's China! :)
Either trip should be fantastic, and I want to do both. I'll keep my fingers crossed that I'll get a chance. Both will opportunities of a lifetime.

Next summer I might be going to Taiwan for a month or so and staying with a friend in Taipei. I won't really care if my boss doesn’t give me the time off, I'll just quit. It’s a chance of a life time. But then again, I'm only 15 and don’t have bills to worry about... And chances are my uncle would give me my job back at the honey factory any way...
BTW, does any body here know of any kung fu schools worth checking out in Taipei?
