Kung Fu Tai Chi Martial Arts!

Shao-Lin (Shaolin) Kung-Fu (Gong Fu) is a 1500 year old Chinese martial art developed by the monks in Honan Province for health, mental and physical conditioning, and self-defense. The system encompasses empty hand, the 18 classical weapons, and animal fighting styles. Internal areas include Tai Chi, Pa Kua, Hsing-I, and ancient breathing & meditation.

The weather could not have been more beautiful this past Saturday, April 11th. The Black Tiger Broadsword seminar was a dazzling display of chops, thrusts, cuts, and kicks! Students from Blue Belts through 5th Degree Black Belt Associate Masters participated in the event, led by Elder Master David.

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!

This rare and ancient Internal Fighting art is often referenced in martial legends, but the actual form is seldom taught. Fu Chia Chien in fact predates T’ai Chi Chuan and was practiced at the Wutang Mountain Temple well before the invention of T’ai Chi. Practicing the Buddha Family Fist will increase your sensitivity, flow and rooting as well as deepen your stances and develop your ability to issue ‘internal’ strikes. Taught for the first time by Associate Master Abram Tamez!


Congratulations on all the students who advanced to the next level of Shao-Lin training in the past 30 days!

MIZHONG CHUAN - Lost Track Fist
DATE: May 16, 2015

Taught for the first time ever at the Chinese Shao-Lin Centers, the "Lost Track Fist" is a deceptive style which emphasizes quick direction changes and tricky footwork. It is named after the fact that an opponent loses track of where you are, as you appear to suddenly vanish before their eyes, reappearing directly behind them! This is the style that the famous Huo Yuanjia "Fearless" used to defeat all opponents! See you instructor for more details on this extraordinary opportunity!

TANG LANG TSE SUA CH'IEN - 7 Star Mantis Pick & Play Fist
DATE: July 25, 2015

The Praying Mantis is the king of the insect world and this seminar focuses on explosive linear power! The famous "Jade Ring" and "Hook" stances are predominantly used throughout the form. In addition, each strike in the form is delivered to pressure points, so be sure to purchase and bring your acupuncture model!
