Shaolin Kung Fu is a martial art that was born in the Songshan Shaolin Temple's Buddhist cultural environment. With roots in Yin Yang and the Five Elements Theory, it evolved as a way to support Buddhist practice and is a manifestation of the spirit of traditional Chinese culture. Our classes reflect this tradition and provide a complete curriculum of internal and external training.

Kung fu: In this class we practice drills, stretches, jumps and forms typical of Shaolin Kung fu training. This is a great and complete workout. You will develop strength, flexibility, stamina, and explosive power while learning the profound art of traditional kungfu from the Shaolin Temple in Henan, China.

Qigong: This is an internal energy cultivation exercise(Ba Duan Jing and Yi Jin Jing are two of the Ba Duan Jingmost well known) from the Shaolin Monastery. It is gentle and suitable for senior citizens and those who are recovering from illness or injury. It is aimed at strengthening the muscles, tendons, and ligaments and achieving a balanced state of internal energy (Qi) in the human body. Qigong can help martial artists and athletes develop explosive power, stamina and resist injury. This practice consists of stretching,breathing and visualization techniques to achieve these holistic health goals. Persistant practice will increase blood and energy flow which can ameliorate various illnesses and is crucial part of iron body training.
