We’ve Returned from Shaolin Temple, China with Lots of Stories!

Many stories to come!

We have just returned from the Shaolin Temple in Henan, China.

Doing well at the 12th Zhengzhou International Shaolin Wushu Festival was the main focus of our 2.5 weeks trip in mid-October. We are happy to report back that we have surpassed all our goals by achieving personal bests in international competition and have brought back many medals.

About the Photo Above: We woke up at 6am especially for this photo. It required a whole team of 50 to coordinate from the Chan Wu Hotel to the Shaolin Temple gates and be one of the first to get in and on the first shuttles to the Shaolin Temple building. As we were organizing ourselves for this photo, there was already a build up of people wanting to take similar photos. Thankfully they gave us the couple of minutes for this photo. We noticed that the Chinese tourists were taking photos of us too – something that was commonly occurring throughout our stay in China.

We will be sharing many stories, photos, and videos in the many weeks to come.

In the meantime, we are glad to be back and looking forward to continue training this week!
