Simple, efficient and enjoyable approach to enhancing your health and wellbeing.
Live well, with our effective mind, body, energy training programs and therapies you can use simply and successfully to enrich your daily life.
Unfortunately, we are not normally taught from an early age how to release things like held tensions, anxiety and worry or become more resilient to stress. Or taught the real impact that these things have on our systems. As a result our body systems can become overwhelmed and fail to do what they are meant to.
If we had learnt these things, life would be very different for us now.
Our main aim is to better equip you with real useable life enhancing tools you can apply daily to help you let go of tension and stress, and deal with overwhelm to improve your health and restore your energy.
There are a number of methods you can use to restore and improve your health and live life with more vitality, these include:
We'll teach you how to reliably use these approaches yourself to improve things and bring back online your own healing system.
- QIGONG -
Master your Energy
Qigong is rooted in a deep understanding of the way illness, lack of energy and unhelpful emotional/mental states arise and the natural way the human mind and body can heal itself. It teaches us how to generate and manage our energy more usefully to help overcome illness or unhelpful states, and can also lead to a greater enjoyment of life. Ideal for those who want to take control of their health and wellbeing.
- KUNGFU -
The Way of Shaolin
Training genuine Shaolin Kung Fu goes beyond the practice of form and movement, teaching you how to develop and manage your energy, for good health, less stress, a clearer mind and deep joy. As a martial art you will learn how to defend yourself, helping you avoid conflict and deal with stressful and challenging situations with confidence and calmness. A Zen approach to training mind, body, energy and spirit.
- KUNGFU -
The Path of Taijiquan
More than a gentle dance... Taijiquan is a genuine martial art for good health, increased performance and spiritual development. It is more suitable than most other martial arts for character development, as the very nature of its training, with its emphasis on gracefulness, gentleness, and harmonious energy flow, is intrinsic to the development of mental freshness and cosmic harmony.
- Wellbeing -
Overcome Pain and Illness. Manage your Energy Levels. Be Free of Stress and Anxiety. Wake up your Healing Systems.
One of the big shifts in being free from health issues, conditions, stress and worry is learning how to manage your energy and support your own natural healing systems.
In addition to the therapy work we do, A-Way Therapy teaches you how to better help yourself, putting you back in the driving seat of your health and wellbeing.
- Yoga -
The exercises in Zen yoga are designed to release held tensions (that can lead to illness, blockages, stress and pain), open and unblock the body in preparation for sitting meditation. They help develop a deeper awareness of the body, and as an opportunity to practice “becoming one” with what’s happening in the moment.
- Meditation -
Zen is the highest form of Shaolin Arts and leads to enlightenment.
"You need not wait to live your life fully in the future; you live your life fully now. This is Zen, an essential aspect of our Shaolin training".

We appreciate that starting a new thing can be a big deal.
We also know that no amount of words do the practice justice.
So the best way to know if this is for you is to try it out!
It is always uplifting and enlightening with Tim’s classes. I have started a course of Qi Gong and Kung at Waltham House Studios in Bognor yesterday evening, and loved it. Can’t wait for next Monday.
Really enjoyed my first class for 2019 with ZenArts @ Waltham House Studios last night. I went to the Qigong and Kungfu sessions. Very friendly group and excellent instruction from Tim, left feeling energised and woke up this morning with a clear mind and body lacking the aches and pains which have built up over the past few months. Really looking forward to going again next week and learning more.
Our aim to continue to preserve and pass on the legacy of genuine arts as taught by our Sifu, Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit.
Zen Arts is the local school in Bognor Regis for Shaolin Wahnam, teaching Internal Shaolin and Wudang Arts, including Shaolin Kung Fu, Taijiquan, Qigong and Zen. ’Internal' means you learn and practice at the level of Jing (body), Chi (energy) and Shen (Mind) - The triple unity. If your training lacks any one of these components then your practice is incomplete.
In practicing these traditional arts we experience the many benefits reported in the ‘classics’, such as increased energy, clearer mind, overcoming of illnesses, better health, resilience, peace of mind and a greater connection with the world around us.
Sifu Tim Franklin
I am a direct student of Sifu Wong (Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit) and official instructor of Shaolin Wahnam, having trained in the Shaolin Arts since 2002. My initial introduction to martial art though was more than 35 years ago. As a child I was fascinated by how the masters were so healthy, vibrant with energy, courageous yet humble and also kind and helpful to others.
Since then I have trained in a number of systems and styles, most directly from Sifu Wong, including: Shaolin Five Animal, Choy Li Fatt, Choe Family Wing Choon, Drunken Eight Immortals, Taijiquan, Xingyi, weapons and the Cotton Art. In 2018 it was a great honor to have been awarded position Wu Fat – (lineage holder) of Cotton Palm Art.
Since 1999 I have been helping people overcome pain, illness and blockages with therapy and subsequently Shaolin Arts. From 2004 I have been running regular classes and workshops teaching Shaolin Kung Fu and Qigong. From 2018, in addition to Zen Yoga classes, I have been running focused health and wellbeing workshops and talks, passing on the methods I have learnt and use, known as collectively as A-Way Therapy.
