Any trustworthy schools in China?
This is my first time writing here and I would like to ask you about the idea of travelling to China to learn Kung-Fu. First of all, I live in Egypt, and I never heard of or found any good schools around me, Egypt is not very big on CMA. As a result I have never received any training in martial arts whatsoever and my general knowledge on such topics is virtually non existent. I'm not a strong guy and I was always interested in the potentials of CMA for its philosophies and teachings. I never achieved this simply because there are no good schools around.
A while ago a friend of mine told me there are plenty of academies in China that teach martial arts. I was very excited to know this and started to search for these schools online. Two schools got my interest, the Shaolin Temple and the Wudang Daoist Kung Fu Academy. I preferred the Wudang Academy to the Shaolin Temple because of my personal preference of Taoism over Buddhism. Of course I have no idea how Buddhist Kung Fu would be different from Taoist Kung Fu in the first place, so I might be wrong about my preferences anyway.
Unfortunately, I've seen a couple of posts online that stated that these schools are mostly a scam and that it's very difficult to find a good school that would teach you martial arts "the right way". This was a big downer since I don't have a lot of savings and I can't afford switching or trying different schools. I was planning on doing this once I graduate from college but now I feel it's gonna be a waste of time and money. I hope I am not right about this.
I would like to know of any good schools that are worth it in China for a complete newbie whose knowledge on these topics is zero to none. Also, are the Wudang Academy and the Shaolin temple merely a scam? They seemed legit and I would really like to learn CMA before it's too late or me getting too old.
Guys please excuse my lack of knowledge on these topics.
I really need your help.
Thanks in advance.
