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.

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!

Praying Mantis is one of the most popular Shao-Lin styles in the world today. This advanced seminar focuses on the pressure point fighting with the famous Mantis finger jabs! Other exciting strikes in the form utilize unique angles with both the hands and the feet! This form is only taught once every four to six years! Open to all levels! DON'T MISS IT!

It's going to be an exciting day of Shao-Lin special training as we present two exciting seminars back-to-back!

The morning begins with Chue Tao, the Drunken Eight Immortals Broadsword! Known as the "General" of all the Chinese weapons, the Broadsword is respected for it's power and speed! Drunken Boxing is famous for its erratic rhythm and timing, its seemingly off-balance techniques, and its unpredictability! What happens when the two styles are put together? Show up to this seminar to find out!

The afternoon continues with the internal art of Hsing-I Six Harmonies Staff. Based on the Chinese 5 Elements, Hsing-I is known for its lightning fast strikes and its explosive power! However, its simplistic and linear movements give way to Hsing-I’s complex and difficult concepts! Achieving the “Six Harmonies” is the ultimate goal of the Hsing-I fighting system and this form explores the weapons aspect of this incredible internal fighting art!

The Broadsword and the Spear go head-to-head in this incredible two weapons fighting set! Do you choose the speed and quickness of the Broadsword or the reach and power of the Spear? Each weapon has its strengths that it will utilize and each weapon has a weaknesses that the other will try and exploit! Two person weapon sets teach application, timing, and distance in a safe, sparring environment! Don't miss this integral part of Shao-Lin training!


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