Who can take part?
Anybody over 18 years of age who does not have a criminal record for violence.
How long will it take? In the case of a trainee with little or no WT experience, the entire technical and theoretical training including teaching practice etc. takes approx. 1 ½ to 2 years. An individually arranged combination course is also possible on request if the student is unable or unwilling to take up permanent residence near Langenzell. In this case he can e.g. come to Langenzell on certain days, take part in weekend seminars near his home town and use holiday periods for intensive studies at Langenzell. In individual cases it may even be possible to find a tutor for additional, local training.
What does training cost? At present approx. 300.- € per month, with up to 8 hours of training per day. Not including travel costs, accommodation and meals of course.
Naturally it is also possible to pay for each lesson on the spot. To ensure that there is no misunderstanding: training (approx. 2 sessions per week) in the local WT school costs only approx. 40.- to 50.- € per month.
When can I start?
You can begin training at any time except during July, when we are closed. Instruction at Langenzell Castle is on an individual basis, as the classes are very small. Instructor training is supervised by the European Chief Instructor, Grandmaster Keith R. Kernspecht, 10th Master level Leung Ting system (Europe).
WT as a (part-time) profession?
Classic teaching and learning concepts are cast in stone, but are often no longer adequate. Entire professions are dying out, and some industries are disappearing entirely. Nowadays, how many school-leavers can say what they will be doing in five years time? Nobody really knows what the future holds.
Bus new opportunities are opening up for well-trained people who are not afraid to work hard and enter uncharted territory.
The transformation from an industrial to a service economy is gathering pace, and the recreational sector in particular is growing in importance (fitness, sport, relaxation, self-discovery etc.). Many have already achieved a good income, independence and self-fulfilment here. Some have even created a new career which would have been beyond their wildest dreams in their old jobs. And others have made their hobby into a profession or a satisfying part-time occupation. Have you ever thought of building your future on WT? Well, you need to be flexible and entrepreneurial in outlook, also wide-awake and active. Are you good at handling people? Can you take physical and mental stress? Do you have at least some start-up capital? Do you want to be independent, be your own boss and organise your time to suit you? Why not put the WT skills you have gained to profitable use?
