WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

In the school's shops you can buy everything for daily needs, are in the nearby town clothes and more. Take as few things as possible, because you would like to bring home as many souvenirs as possible and 20 kg of luggage must be quickly exceeded.
Light clothes are recommended, such as T-shirts and trousers in summer, and running shoes.
In winter, you should take your thick warm clothes.
A small first aid kit is recommended, the Chinese medicine also helps in case of illness very well.
PREPARATION OF SPORTS
The long and unaccustomed exercise of 6 days a week with short breaks between training sessions is very hard and at least during the first 4 weeks you will feel your muscles ache. The better the fitness, the less problems you will behave in the training. It is not important if your have martial arts experience, but the overall fitness, a good stretch, and most importantly, a strong will to persevere.
You can walk home with her to prepare a lot of stretching and general fitness training. Even stairs / mountain climbing is a good preparation.
You book a flight to Beijing and take a domestic flight from Beijing to Zhengzhou. As a rule, the earlier you book a flight, the cheaper it is, therefore you should time yourself on your travel dates. The domestic flights can be booked by the travel agency in your home country
The journey from Beijing to Zhengzhou can also be finished by train, but it makes little sense. The airport in Beijing is located outside the city, so you must take a taxi (in Chinese) at the right station, and you (I mean it) must wait a long time and try to get a ticket for today. Often they are sold out, so that a hotel stay is required. Advice: travel by plane, and if you see you safely into the Chinese language and mentality feel, uses the train on the way back.
