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!
