Shaolin Kung Fu is the root of all martial arts, originally developed in the Shaolin Monastery in China about 1,500 years ago. Since then it has branched into many schools such as Chauan, Choy-Li-Fatt, Hong Ka, Praying Mantis, Tai Chi Chuan, Wing Choon, and many others.
This is one of the oldest forms of Chinese medicine, used in helping you to cultivate your vital energy as well as heal and prevent illness. It is an antidote to the stress and strains of modern-day life and an important component of our training.
