Location

Shaolin Temple in China is the best place to practice original Kung Fu and they are surely unrivaled, but the tickets cost much and the trip is difficult. The main target of Shaolin Temple Secular Disciples in Greece is to bring the real traditional training of Shaolin Kung Fu to the west, closer to the people who do not have the opportunity to travel to China or those who have traveled before and they want to do the same program in the west.

Greece is a wonderful place for this purpose since the weather conditions are similar to Song San mountain. In addition, you will be thought by qualified teachers from China.

Klimenti is a Village in Sikyon in Corinth in the Peloponnese Region of Greece. In 1991, Klimenti's population was 279, down from 315 in 1981. Locations near Klimenti include the Village of Kessari and the Village of Velina.
