A dream. A cause!
Do you ever dream about a place, high in the mountains, far from buzzing cities? A place to attach yourself to what is spiritually superior?
Do you ever ask yourselves exactly when the work and day to day worries to not be accepted by others, had taken over you?
People now are not physically and mentally stable as they should be. The major factor is a lack of self-confidence and self-worth.
An idea comes, when I found that in my granddad's legacy I was named heir of a 1-hectare field next to a nearby forest in Gela, the village in which according to the myths the famous Orpheus was born.
In this legendary mountain land, I want to build, not a Shaolin Temple, but an inn that gathers different martial arts clubs, from Japanese Karate, Judo, Aikido, through Korean Taekwondo to whole Chinese Kung Fu styles, Wing Tsun and Tai Chi. Also traditional Bulgarian Da Dao, Greek Pankration, Muay Thai, and many more. I want it to be a place in which you can see many people's ideas, way of life, and challenge your mental and physical beliefs.
Escape from the everyday problems, train your body and soul and return to bare your life with happiness and strength.
For now, I have ordered an architect to make some 3D schemes, which will soon be published here, and offer me a basic price. He said that for a traditional part Chinese part Japanese and part Bulgarian styles that I'm in love with it will be at least 100 000 euros, because of the big construction for living space, many bedrooms, gym with at least 8 punching bags, and another room which will look more like a dojo, with tatami and wooden dummies.
The inn should be able to accommodate somewhere between 25 and 30 people and provide tents for 20 more. Here, high in the mountains, even summer nights are cold, but the supreme view of the Milky Way makes you stay longer outside.
I thought it is a good idea to make charging price around 5/10 euros per nigh, so anyone could come and breathe a little mountain air, walk in the nearby forest, recall what is the natural simplicity of the human life.
So help me with that journey, to change people's lives for good, and add in them some extra strength!
