Shaolin Kung Fu
More than 1000 years old, Shaolin Fung Fu (少林功夫) is an ancient and deeply revered school of martial arts known for building strength and agility, promoting physical, mental and spiritual well-being, and inspiring personal growth. Developed and evolved by Buddhist Monks, Shaolin Kung Fu is a self-defense fighting art exemplified by a wide variety of fist and weapons forms. Shaolin Kung Fu requires strength, power and technique, and inspires meditation, thoughtfulness, gentleness, joy and tranquility.

Contemporary Wushu
Wushu (武术) is a style of contemporary kung fu with origins in Shaolin Kung Fu that blends martial applications and performance. Wushu martial artists combine strength, power, speed, flexibility, and acrobatics with the goal of producing fierce, flawless, and a seemingly effortless execution of wushu fist and weapons forms. International momentum is building for Contemporary Wushu to become an official Olympic sport. Learn more about our Wushu Program

Tai Chi
Known as "meditation in motion" Tai Chi (太極拳) is a series of graceful movements directed with focused intention that promotes physical, mental and spiritual well-being, and inspires personal growth. Tai Chi in Chinese translates roughly as "grand ultimate fist," for its characteristically peaceful yet powerful fighting principles that inspire self-defense without aggression. Practicing Tai Chi reduces stress, enhances mood, and has a positive impact on balance, fitness, and flexibility for people of all ages and abilities, including those with many chronic health conditions.

Iron Body Qi Gong
An integral part of Chinese culture for thousands of years, Qi Gong (chi kung) (氣功) uses breathing techniques, meditation, and sometimes body conditioning, to improve physical, mental and spiritual health. Qi (chi) is a Chinese term referring to all of the energy within and around us. Gong (kung) means the power to attain or affect something through practice. Loosely translated, Qi Gong means “the attainment of qi.” Iron Body is a style of Qi Gong that uses breathing, meditation and the deliberate conditioning and striking of various part of the body with the goal of developing and focusing qi in ways that allow a person to withstand an attack.
