The Perfect Setting For KungFu
Our breath taking location, YongPing, is a county belonging to Dali City, located in Southern Yunnan Province amongst the Himalayan foothills.
Yunnan or 'South of the Clouds' is a very mountainous province in Southwest China, which borders Tibet, Myanmar, Laos, and Vietnam with an average altitude of 1980m.
YongPing is a small, friendly and quiet town with a population of around 170,000. Located roughly in the middle between the two Cities Dali and BaoShan, which are both no more than an hour's drive away and both conveniently have airports. We are also in driving distance to Lijiang and the Burmese border both approx 3hrs drive at a safe speed.
YongPing and surrounding areas has heaps of famous Temples, mountains, and lakes to visit as well as natural relaxing hot springs which have been known to heal certain illnesses.
RDS it's self is positioned just 15 minutes away from the town inside a million square meter private park filled with beautiful multi coloured plants, amazing wild-life, statues, forests, lakes, wild bamboo, and of course The RDS Temple, accommodation and training facility.
Although we are at an altitude of 1700m there are many neighbouring mountains that tower us with altitudes reaching 4000m, which make for challenging hikes during your free time.
Considering our remoteness we are easily accessed with airports in Baoshan, Dali, and Lijiang, the latter being an International airport. The capital of Yunnan, Kunming City is only a 40-minute flight to Dali and has multiple high speed trains everyday getting you into Dali in less than 2 hours.
There are many Kungfu schools in China but very few can match the carefully selected peaceful grounds of RDS. Most parts of China for example Beijing, Hebei, Shandong, and Henan Province suffer terrible pollution, however, the RisingDragonSchool location has nothing but clean, fresh air!
RDS, sitting on the Himalayan foothills, simply has the perfect setting for Kung Fu training in China!
