I'm relatively new to the world of martial arts(I did a bit of Karate when I was younger) and I'm really interested in Kung Fu. I was wondering if anyone here is familiar with the Bei Shaolin Kung Fu Institute(Memphis and Chicago). If you do, is it worth checking the place out. I know the school creed, but their site doesn't say much about the school....

???

sure take the weekw worth of classes and see what you think of it and such and such. If you like it then continue on. If you dont try to see if there are other kungfu schools out there if kungfu is what you want.

I don't know. I thought the "student creed" was a little too dogmatic. You might want to treat this one with caution if you're not into the religion.

One week of free sweat wouldn't hurt.

Bei Shaolin simply means North (Bei, as in Beijing) Shaolin. It is such a wide term it can mean almost anything. You need to start somewhere I suppose.

Good Luck; sad that you need luck to learn MA these days.

I'll do the free week of this, but I may not go for it.

My friend told me about a Memphis Martial Arts Center that teaches Kenpo, Wushu, Jujitsu, Wing Chun, JKD/Kali, Savate, Muay Thai, Boxing, and Silat. Apparently the instructor started teaching at 14 and opened his own school at 18. He looks legit.
