I teach exclusively Plum Flower Boxing, this ancient Chinese martial art. Welcome to practice a traditional art with a martial approach. My intention is to transmit this art that I have learnt in China.
The Plum Flower boxing is an ancient Chinese martial art which builds mental and physical strength, resistance and flexibility. Giuseppe Mighali has been practising martial arts for over 25 years and has been living in China for 16 years, researching about this specific art. Join his classes and discover the philosophy and the power of this rare practice which is named after the only flower that is able to blossom during winter.
The classes are held at Chaoyang Park. Contact me, I can send you my position. We practice several times a week outdoors in the evening, all along the year and whatever the season. Dress freely. Comfortable and in harmony with the season. The choice of shoes is important. The sole should not be too thick and neck not too high.
It's an elegant and elaborate art, that requires strength and self-will. Luckily, Giuseppe was able to put at ease even a newbie like me. He is patient, but not accondiscendente, he pushes to your limit. The lesson was in the open air, amidst the mountains near Beijing. Surronded by nature, it is easier to focus on your stretching exercises, there is not much talking, but few simple commands to follow and work. After the session, Giuseppe invites you for a tea ceremony, where you can relax and continue to cleanse your body from toxins. I strongly recommend these lessons to all expats in Beijing, who would like to experience what martial arts really are, and because they can be held also in English and French.

这个周末来到京北的下苑村，接受一位来自意大利的梅拳武者——朱塞佩师傅的训练。 出于对洋教头的好奇和些许《少林寺》的怀旧，也依赖长期的有氧运动和不间断混迹健身房的底子，还是自信满满的来到这片练功的树林里，完整完成三个半小时的、完全有别于寻常的训练教程。 这天小雨，但没有收到停止训练、回屋避雨的指令。朱师傅会用流利的中文和精准的示范，认真教授每一个动作，并纠正其错误和不足。各种标准姿势的抻筋压腿和踢腿热身，纠正了我过去很多不规范甚至是错误的动作，而意志、体能与灵动三位一体的站桩，让我初识与健身房完全不同的身体感受。 之后的身体反应是这样：浑身肌肉的乳酸堆积，身体的协调性短时退化。周日完全瘫软在床上，过了三天回复正常走路步态。哈哈！ 所以个人感受，相比有氧和举铁，抻筋压腿和踢腿的热身过程被无限放大和规范了，唤醒了身体很多没有得到延展的部位；套手的初试，体验到肌肉抗打击能力的耐受度；至于那八套脚站桩导致的全身超级静力酸爽感，不仅完全区别于局部肢体撸铁的感受，连“平板撑”和“静力蹲”之类在其面前貌似也属于小儿科了。 不过朱师傅解释我描述的站桩心得只是门外级的快感，坚持下去，会有万般的体能和技击上的收获。 删除对功夫片中“功夫”的定义吧，功夫的真正定义是“花功夫”，就像“罗马不是一天建成的”一样。 好吧，我坚持一下吧………

The class takes place under the mountain with the most picturesque view. I went there by the city bus which was pretty comfortable and easy to use. Then Giuseppe took me further to the mountains with his car. We had a rather intensive practice in a group of three other really nice guys who train on a regular basis. I enjoyed the whole experience a lot. I wish there were also classes during the week days, I would go again.

It was a cold morning, the sun was shining through the jungle, quiet and beautiful. Our guys was practising plum flower boxing here, followed Mr. Giuseppe, a REAL boxer who really knows Chinese martial arts. He would carefully guide our practice, demonstrate and correct mistakes. The whole process takes about 3 or 4 hours, includes warm-up, stretching, resistance and strength training. It will be a little cold at first, but the body will get warm soon, and excited, because of the exercise. It's a very interesting weekend activity, come on！

Last Saturday, I made an appointment with Mr. Giuseppe for the experience of plum flower boxing, and according to the agreement, I came to a beautiful village at the foot of the mountain in the north of Beijing. I practiced with several other friends.We spent a total of four hours in outdoor activities, and this intensity of exercise was a huge challenge for me. When attention is focused on doing every movement, immersed in the smoothness of the muscles after stretching, but also deeply feel the lack of physical ability. Although I am very tired, but I think i like this sport. Mr. Giuseppe is very serious in the training process. Every action is demonstrated and explained. he’s cool and nice. I will continue to practice the plum flower boxing.
