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 Chinese Shao-Lin Center of New Mexico (CSC) is the only school in the state that is certified to teach traditional Shao-Lin Kung Fu martial arts by a Shao-Lin Grandmaster. The Albuquerque, New Mexico school is part of a network of 9 centers that span across the Southwest United States and reach as far as the country of Spain! For more information on the Chinese Shao-Lin Centers, please see the About CSC page. For locations outside of Albuquerque, New Mexico, please see our Contact page.

We offer the MOST AFFORDABLE rates for martial arts in New Mexico. Training at the Chinese Shao-Lin Center of New Mexico is so comprehensive and inexpensive that it can replace having to go to a gym, running, swimming, taking self-defense courses, yoga, meditation & tai chi, or cross training. You get all of that - and so much more - less than $42 per month! (See our Classes and Fees)

The Chinese Shao-Lin Center of New Mexico teaches the REAL forms and exercises from the Shao-Lin Temples of ancient China and does not simply just borrow the famous name of 'Shaolin'. Some of our curriculum dates back over 1500 years. As you will see from the material taught, the CSC of New Mexico is the most diverse and traditional martial arts school in New Mexico.

What you will find here is authentic, effective, and essential for longevity, health, and martial arts. There is no equivalent.

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. The "Wooden Man" form 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!
