Discipleship means, that you are living and training in the Shaolin Temple Europe under monastic conditions and regulations. During your stay, you will study and learn more about Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, as well as Kung Fu, Qi Gong and other “Shaolin” arts including Chinese Culture and Tea ceremonies e.g.

One could call it experiencing a school of life. As a disciple you have the same daily schedule and structure as that, prescribed for novices, monks and nuns of the Shaolin Temple Europe.
