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 15 that span across the Southwest United States and reach as far as the country of Ireland! 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. What you will embark upon, can be the most rewarding and exciting venture of your life! For more details on how our Shao-Lin martial arts and chi kung training will improve your health, fitness levels, balance, coordination, and self-defense skills, please see the Curriculum page.

RECENT ELDER MASTER VISIT
This past weekend, Albuquerque students celebrated a very special weekend. 36 students advanced to next level of training, including seven new 3rd Degree Brown Belts, eight new 2nd Degree Brown Belts, two new 1st Degree Brown Belts, and one new Black Belt (congratulations to Dorian Dixon)! In addition, seven Black Belts and above completed yet another stage of pre-testing as they prepare for advancement in June.

Following the seminar was the 2nd China Trip Meeting as students, family, and friends prepare for a spectacular visit to the Orient!

The Meteor Fist seminar - the 4th, and perhaps most secret, Internal Fighting System of Shao-Lin - was attended by Lower Belts through 5th Degree Black Belt Associate Masters. Some traveled in as far as Raleigh, North Carolina to participate!

The weekend concluded with a special dinner, hosted by Thai Vegan in Nob Hill! Thank you, Owner/Chef Pat, for a wonderful evening!

We'd like to thank Elder Master David and Sharon for an exciting weekend! We appreciate them taking time out of their busy schedule to share with us their knowledge, skill, and mastery of the Shao-Lin art!

April 29 SINGLE NUCHAKU FORM
The two-jointed sticks are one of the eighteen classical weapons of Shao-Lin Kung-Fu! This seminar teaches over two dozen uses of the nunchaku, including spins, shoots, and grip changes! Punches, kicks, and ground fighting techniques throughout the form make this an exciting training that will prepare you for the double nunchaku form!

May 6 SPARRING STRATEGIES CLASS
This theory and concepts class delves into the applications of the Shao-Lin art through various styles including Tiger, Crane, Snake, Chin Na grappling, Tai Chi Ch'uan, and Drunken Boxing! This course reveals the strategies of linear and circular as well as proper timing and distance and will give you the tools needed for high-level martial arts! This class also teaches the nine One-Step Sparring Techniques. DON'T MISS IT!

May 31 DOWN & GROUND FIGHTING CLASS
Statistics show that many, many altercations in real life end up on the ground. In addition, tripping and falling claims thousands of lives every year as does accidents on bikes, etc.. Learning HOW to fall is therefore a crucial skill that everyone should invest in. In addition to falling, this seminar will highlight front and back sweeps, leg and arm scissors, drop kicks, the iron broom sweeps, and the exciting tiger tail sweep! If that wasn't enough, students will also learn a myriad of ways of regaining their feet without compromising their defense.

STONE MONKEY'S CRAFTY HANDS
DATE: Saturday, May 17, 2014

DRUNKEN IMMORTAL LU TUNG PING & DRUNKEN STAFF
DATE: Sunday, June 7, 2014
LOCATION: CSC Denver

DESCRIPTION:
Released for the first time ever at the Chinese Shao-Lin Centers, this last of the Eight Drunken Immortals forms commemorates the leader of the famous group! Lu Tung Ping is often depicted in painting as carrying a double-edged sword known as the "Demon Slayer" and a whisk that allows him to fly! He is the most acrobatic of all the Eight Immortals and is known as the 'Scholar/Warrior'!

Also included for the first time is the Drunken Staff (Chue Pang) in which the practitioner appears to stumble around, accidentally striking his foe and avoiding their attacks. The Drunken Style is famous for its unorthodox timing and rhythm, it's unpredictability in combat, and its enjoyable playfulness!
