NEW! "Shao-Lin Wooden Man" program
The forms and training with the Shao-Lin "Wooden Man" make up an important part of the Kung-Fu skills and conditioning found at our Shao-Lin schools. Also called the "Wooden Dummy" and popularized by Ip Man, the Shao-Lin "Wooden Man" is the original training and predates Wing Chun by 1000 years. The "Wooden Man" forms contains many of the fighting techniques and combinations of the Shao-Lin system.

The advantages of training on the Wooden Man are, that it can be hit as hard as the practitioner wishes, it can be trained for long hours whereas a partner might get bored. Also, the Wooden Man does not move much, thus the practitioner learns mobility while circling around the Wooden Man in conjunction with blocking and striking hand & foot techniques.

Iron Monk Training for bone densification and postures from the 49 I Chin Ching (Muscle-Tendon Change Classic) for strength & flexibility are also included in each class!
