The Shaolin Legends Camp was a remarkable experience. As a teenager I always wanted to train in the Shaolin Temple. Thanks to Philip Sahagun he made it happen. I was impressed with meeting other members in the camp and made friendship which impacted me. The journey is all worth it at the very end.

I believe 90% of progress starts by adjusting your mindset and a large part of that adjustment comes from who you train with. For this event I've pulled some strings to create a total immersion "live in" martial arts experience in the heart of China. Our focus? To elevate and ignite your personal progress while exploring the art of Kung Fu. Now, no one said this is going to be a cake walk. In this program each day is all in, and it's led by a world class team. In our first year we had over 200 people apply and hand selected each group to make journey. Thinking about joining us? You won't be disappointed.

- Health Exercise, Traditional Forms
- Martial Arts Philosophy
- Guided tour & training in Shaolin Temple
The trip was a martial arts enthusiasts dream, a great experience. So much fun, and culturally immersive. That being said it was physically, mentally, and emotionally demanding, but that is what made it the grand encounter in a foreign land that it was. One thing to highlight was our time at Shaolin Temple, seen in a totally different light than the average visitor. Definitely bucket list material.
WES S. / FORMER CIRQUE DU SOLEIL ARTIST
Spending time doing hard work, honing our skills, learning the philosphy behind the movement, and a little sightseeing made this an incredbily valuable trip. And one I will not soon forget. I'm looking forward to more growth opportunities from Kung Fu Heroes!
GEDALY G. / ACTOR AND FILMMAKER
I have always dreamed about visiting this spiritual place one day. I felt like I was visiting a historical time era. In this warrior uniform, I roamed through a magical place, filled with positivity and happiness, which was an cleansing feeling I was longing for my soul. Practicing the ancient art at the well known Shaolin Luohan School alongside the monks and my newly met friends was definitely an eye catching experience for all of us. If i could go back to this place, I would do it anytime! Thanks for everything Philip!
JACKIE W. / FILM MAKER, STUDENT
UNIVERSITY OF ECONOMY, VIENNA
Thank you for making my boyhood dreams come true. The other BESTEST part was going on this trip with straight up martial artists. Yes, we were all at different levels of our training, which was to be expected, but it felt like family. That was the most important part.
