To Shaolin by Motorcycle
A documented single journey to China. The new most spontaneous action of my life. Stories about adventures, gladness and difficulties 1-2 times a week on YouTube, and Instagram, do not miss the beginning.
Saint Petersburg — Shaolin
The aim is
to show the entrance to Shaolin Temple (China) the second time, reporting all what I see in YouTube
Organize spontaneous meetings with people;
Share the rules and tips of safe motorcycle ride;
Motivate others to become self-aware;
Show others that traveling is bigger than it seems to be, it’s a road to yourself
How it was done by the plane
In 2015 I quitted an office job and took my way to Shaolin Temple In 2019 a YouTube video with my interviewabout life in Shaolin hit more than 2 million views in one week, and the last year it got over 6 million views.
You're in good hands
Opinion leaders' impressions
"His biography is a gripping story, how to live not bya pattern, but by following an inner feeling."
"It's a story about how and why actually learning Shaolin kung fu, and how you can understand life by simply repeating the same movements year after year. It's a great story!"
"He left his native Saint-Petersburg, gave up a good job, a rotten apartment, all his past life and left for the other side of the Earth."
Early in the morning I’ll stop by the main gate of Shaolin Temple. I’m gonna get on the kung fu show, show the place where I camped out and lived for the first two weeks. I’ll show you how Dengfeng has changed in the last years.
To strive to learn new things
From 2019 I studied at the Master’s degree in Beijing, I studied Chinese philosophy, from 2015 I studied martial arts and bodily practices, in five years I have accumulated topics for conversation.
From St. Petersburg to the east, with a stop at Baikal Lake. Ulaanbaatar to the Chinese border From Beijing through Guoliang to Shaolin Temple. Heading west to Xinjiang, Kazakhstan — back to Russia.
Journey is the way
The Way around Asia
"Once a spring is broken through, it can flow anywhere, if the road is laid out, you can go anywhere."
"Live Speeches" trans. 杨兴顺
The road is made by walking; Walking makes the road
Despite the difficulties in the journey, crossing borders during the pandemic, I do not call it difficulties, I think of it as a “adventure”. “The way” is distinguished by the absence of rigid plans at intermediate points.

Motivation of others — achieving mutual goals
“Brainstorming” in the time of Confucius was called “unity through difference of opinion.” For example, the creation and approval of a law should be hold by officials with different opinions. Different opinions, but common goals.
Freedom as a lifestyle
In the “Biography of the Saints-Immortals” it is said: “The non-birth of not a single thought is freedom; the absence of things in the heart and head is immortal.” Travel is the way of not giving birth to thoughts and the absence of things in the heart.
"Everyone who is ready for the change is able to reach the top"
Traveling without any hotel reservations, air and railways transport schedules in solo is called travel without any plan. Traveling without a plan is the embodiment of a willingness to change.
May measure value of the human?
“… when he meets with other people, he has clear and refined order of the attitude towards everyone — from the elders to the youngers; he has a clear, refined form to enter into relationships with others; he has the joyful kindness to love others; that’s what a human is valuable for.”
Shaolin as a source of self-development
Everyone in their life should have their own guidelines for growth, their goals in achieving of which development is felt. I am similar to you in that Shaolin was a dream that inspires

for the companies
The project is unique as it brings together the properties and qualities of a person in one journey, which rarely meet together. For example, as it was in the case with the Tesla company. Those who trust will win. This is exactly what my journey will be about.
