Martial Arts & Chinese Language

With our most popular program, practice martial arts in the mornings and study Chinese in the afternoons.

Learn Chinese martial arts from some of the country's most famous masters and coaches. Choose from any number of styles such as chang quan (long fist), sword, staff, Chinese kickboxing, tai chi, and more.

Study Chinese in the capital of the country, Beijing.

Wushu or Kung Fu is a broad term that includes Chinese traditional martial arts, kickboxing, breathing techniques, modern acrobatic martial arts and much more. Learn both martial arts and Chinese with our combined program.

Martial arts training takes place five days a week from 8:00AM to 10:30AM. You have the option to learn either modern martial arts (wushu), Chinese Kickboxing (sanda), or Tai Chi. If you would like to learn more than one of these styles then feel free to alternate your classes, studying a month of kickboxing and a month of Tai Chi for example.

Chinese classes take place Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 2:00PM to 5:00PM. Tuesday and Thursday afternoons are free to make new friends, explore the city, and actually put that Chinese into everyday use.

Take your language skills to the next level with some of Beijing's best teachers and put them to practice with our language exchange partner program.

Our language exchange program introduces you to a new Chinese friend, a great way to start making a group of friends in a new country. Exchange partners will speak a decent amount of English and can act as guides around Beijing, as well as introduce you to the real Chinese lifestyle.

Many students find that having a language exchange partner is as valuable as the Chinese lessons themselves when put together, as it gives them the chance to put what they have learned into use. Most importantly, you'll have a great time and make a new friend!

The Haidian university district, where most of our programs take place, is the student heart of Beijing and combines a studious atmosphere with a young and fun lifestyle. Study centres and bookshops are found in the area, as are great restaurants, bars, karaoke clubs and nightclubs. Haidian is the place to be if you're young!

When not in class, check out any number of the great activities our team puts on, from ski and snowboard trips in the winter to martial arts games in the parks and foam parties in the summer!
