What is Shaolin Kung Fu?
Shaolin Kung Fu, one of the oldest and most established martial arts originates from the Songshan Shaolin Temple and developed during the Northern Wei Dynasty over a century ago. Kung Fu is a way of life and taught by Shaolin Monks, embodying the wisdom of Buddhism and Zen philosophies.
This ancient knowledge will teach you to live in harmony with nature, strengthen your mental and physical wellbeing as well as help you develop discipline and endurance.
Shaolin Kung Fu encompasses numerous meditations and martial arts, including Tai-Chi, Chin Na, Sanda and Qi Gong. Shaolin techniques draw on the behavioural patterns of both humans and animals and the different animal styles include Dragon, Tiger, Snake, Crane, and Monkey, with Drunken Fist representing a human style. These styles have been perfected for centuries and are passed down from master to student. The goal of Shaolin Kung Fu and its adjacent meditations and martial arts are the union of mind, body and spirit.
