The major reason I signed up was to help me get in better shape, reduce stress, and learn a new system of defense. I have studied various forms in my lifetime and I just enjoy learning the ins and outs of each system I learn. I do what Bruce Lee said to do study a broad Spector of styles take what is useful and discard the rest. I strive to become as best as I can be!
I am relatively new to Enter Shaolin and have had many obstacles in learning the basics. (20+ years of training is hard to unlearn) But, it is coming easier and easier with every day I practice. Sifus have helped me out so so much and I am truly humbled as to how much they want their students to learn. I can honestly say that has not happened to me since I was in my teens. And now I am in my mid 40’s! Keep up the great work and the great site!!!!

That was an informative and funny video…I enjoyed it. Being that I live in the Pacific Time Zone and due to work, I train during the time periods from 8pm-11pm usually for about 45 minutes to an hour. So I couldn’t join a live webinar, but I’d view a taped webinar later in the evening. My main focus here is Tai Chi and I have taken live classes private and group. In the end I really learned by taping my teacher doing the form and practicing at home later. So video learning is the best way to learn Tai Chi forms. Also Sfu Phu teaching skills are a million times better than what I had. He teaches what’s behind the forms and how the energies flow through The forms. Energy flows through each form differently …that’s the beauty of learning Tai Chi. As far as push hands or practicing with a partner is concerned, I don’t feel it’s as important as learning the forms themselves because that’s where you learn the internal energies. I always felt group push hands sessions were sort of useless… I always got hurt because it was the blind leading the blind. I’d rather use a tree branch or door to learn my sensitivity training. So I don’t think people should be so obsessed with having training partners.

I joined Enter Shaolin to learn a Kung Fu style of martial arts and get into shape. I wanted to study martial arts for as long as I can remember but, I allowed drugs and alcohol run my life. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and He took the drugs and alcohol away from me and gave me my life back and rekindled my desire to study martial arts. When I joined and opened up the training hall and saw all the different styles that Enter Shaolin teaches, I thought WOW, this is gonna be great! I have enjoyed the lessons and have learned a lot. I really look forward to getting deeper into my walk with Jesus and getting deeper into what Enter Shaolin has to offer. Thank you all and God bless. Jesus is Lord.
Sifu Phu Ngo says
Amen and so glad we are brothers in Christ and Enter Shaolin. 🙂
Brad W says
Amen brother. Hope someday I get to come up there and meet everyone

That is one beautiful testimonial you have brother! Thank you for sharing and I am super happy that your life has been transformed and made anew!
I look forward to seeing your growth in your spiritual and kung fu journey.
While you may have been through much as many of us have, now you have a way to relate and help others you may not have been able to before. God always uses our heartaches and hardships for His good and we can be a vessel to help others by sharing our story.
Sending you prayers and blessings brother!
Witalis S says
Thank you for good conversation, you touch number of very important topics, and answers as you noticed are not so simple. Many people and many different reasons, and those change in time, people and reasons…it is so hard to give good and general advice to everyone…Why people do Kung Fu? …in general many are not satisfied with their lives as it is, so they look for some change or improvement, and Kung Fu is one of the ways, where we focus on our inner self and try to bring that change into something better about ourselves, about our lives, and into our lives…It is Art of Life, through physical workout into development of our good features of character, fighting our physical weakness, learning to overcome emotional-psychological weakness…becoming stronger person in the body, we become stronger in character, because body and mind are connected, and Kung Fu is one of the ways, which helps us to find and harmonize this connection…physical aspect of Kung Fu, helps us to discover inner truth about ourselves, we are turning from dreamers into real people, whatever the level may be, we become aware of our reality, and this is something real…and this something real is, what so many people are looking for in this life…discover yourself as you are, reality check, and that maybe a very good beginning for something greater happening in you journey of life…
Sije Jamie Pelaez says
Hey Witalis! It’s interesting you said people have many reasons, so it is hard to give good advice as I have found whether it be Kung Fu, working out, going after any passion, goal, dream, etc. There are only 4 factors that stop people from continuing and in some cases even starting.
All which can be overcome by a shift in mindset.
My question wasn’t why do people do Kung Fu, but rather what is your personal why brother? Because knowing your WHY will help you to stay accountable and to get past any of those 4 challenges I mentioned if or when they arise.
If what you wrote about others is your WHY, you are good to go brother as you have very detailed reasons why. Print them out, read them every day or a few times a week. Always keep those reasons in your mind to remind you why you keep going in your kung Fu journey.
Keep being awesome!
Dariusz G says
Hi My Family :}
My reason for signing in to Enter shaolin was to learn Kung Fu. I always loved martial arts and been doing it for a long while training Taekwondo.
When i seen Sifu Phu On Youtube for the first time i Knew i had to be a part of the family.
What he learns In Qigong, tai chi and Kung fu is a must have if You want to be a good martial artist.
I do love to listen to all the advices i can get from Enter shaolin, it’s always helpful in my training and every day to day life.
Currently i struggle with time a little bit Because of the work which makes me lower the amount of training to 3 days a week of physical training and technique and daily qigong and Tai chi session.
Hope my problems with time will run out soon and i will be able to concentrate on normal amount of training.
By the way About the partner – i never had a good partner to train, most of the people in my environment are afraid of even a little bit of pain and no one wants to try techniques that cause even a little bit of pain.
I try to train what i can without a partner and if i need one i ask my wife to help me out and sort it :}
Thank You for the video, it seems like it’s just for me !
Sije Jamie Pelaez says
Thank you brother Dariusz for sharing your why with us! I love how you had a similar ephinay as me!
I am honored we are able to help you in your day to day life brother!
That’s not bad at all that’s a great schedule you have. I know a lot of times we wished we had more time, but the schedule you have is plenty to keep you moving forward in your training. Keep up the great work brother!
Good point brother, it can be difficult to find someone that actually is okay with getting hit and feeling pain. Because it’s going to happen.
I am happy your wife will help out when you need some extra assistance, that’s utilizing your resources brother!
Melani W says
I did watch the whole thing. I waited a few days though because I knew it would take more time than I had available when I got the email late Friday night. I totally get the frustration of sending out great info only to realize that a lot of people aren’t bothering to read it. I’ve run across the same problem with my students and their parents. As far as the slack chat vs forum goes, when you first introduced slack chat my first thought was, “great now I have to learn a new platform in order to use this” It wasn’t that hard after all but a lot of people who already feel overwhelmed won’t take the time to learn it. I’m looking forward to learning more about the ambassador thing. Maybe I should just jump into that and see if I can swim without waiting for the webinar to help me learn it. Not sure yet if I’ll do that. Anyway, I appreciate what you guys do. Don’t get too discouraged by those who burn out quickly. It’s human nature that a lot of people will begin and only some will keep going. I’m glad you are part of the some who keep going!
Sije Jamie Pelaez says
Hey Melani, thank you for the insight and encouragement. And yes, sadly it is human nature. Just sad to see someone go from excited to fizzled out in a week. Definitely a new experience.
And yes please go ahead and signup to the Ambassador/Affiliate program, just so your account is setup and ready to go for the webinars which we will be starting next week!
Super excited! You can signup here: http://www.entershaolin.com/affiliate
