What else can I study?

* Movies
Why not spend a few years studying movies in California, USA?

We offer tailor made courses in co-operation with Peter Stanleigh, who runs a specialist Movie School and a large variety of courses from his base in Los Angeles. You can choose from Camera Studies, Sound, Music scores, Animation studio - as well as Acting Courses, which also include free screen-testing and studio filming for the best students.

The very best students are usually offered acting or technical position contracts by major film studio's, but this is up to you!

* Kung Fu
Locally known as 'Gongfu', Chinese Kung Fu is traceable back to around 5, 000 BC or earlier. For over 200 years, Foshan in China has been the world's premier Kung Fu Arts and Heritage centre, and offers several Schools of Excellence.

Kung Fu began in Foshan when the Imperial forces sacked the famous Shaolin Temple in Futian Province. Refugees fled amass, and many found shelter in Foshan. Most noteworthy was a diminutive man called Wong Fei Hong (Huang Fei Hong in Mandarin). His Father started the first Kung Fu School of Excellence in Foshan, and he + many others followed. Wong Fei Hong created a new style of fighting, and this has been a common form for practitioners to follow ever since

The next person you need to know about is called Ip Man, and he fought and won a battle with a Japanese General in Foshan. Recently China Film Studios has released a film about his life, which is very well worth watching. Whilst victorious in battle, Ip Man was shot in the neck by a Japanese lackey, and escaped with his life to Hong Kong. Later he returned to Foshan and started a new Gongfu School of excellence, which is now celebrated at The Ancestral Temple in the middle of Foshan City. In his latter years a regular pupil was a certain Bruce Lee ... and I am sure you have heard of him!

However, the modern focus of Gongfu in Foshan is currently based around a small hill called Xi Qiao (Where Wong Fei Hong's Father settled). Here you will find the Memorial, and also several schools all teaching Kung Fu

Whilst most classes cover several months, or years; there are special courses run for foreigners, and foreign experts are particularly welcome! China Expats can offer exclusive and bespoke deals for any Kung Fu holidays in Foshan, which will always include our full services
