Shaolin Arts

Training for Physical, Mental, Emotional, Energetic and Spiritual Development

Benefit from 5000 years of collective wisdom In-Person, Face-Face & Live Online Training

Shaolin is more than Kungfu fighting; it is a way of cultivating mind, body, energy and spirit.

It is a way of being - providing increased vital energy, improved health, mental freshness and spiritual joys.

Historically, training the Shaolin Arts meant one would work through the various depths and scope of body, energy and mind, training progressively and safely.

As each technique and skill is reached, you would progress to the next. No rush, just consistent regular practice, resulting in the benefits that come with training this way.

In Shaolin, there are no belts. When you are ready, you move to the next level.

Rich history, Ancient Wisdom

Shaolin has a rich history, benefitting from thousands of years of self-practice and excellence, and a profound understanding of the way the mind-body-energy systems work.

Triple Cultivation Practice

When you practice the Shaolin Arts, you are training three essential aspects - mind, body and energy, known as ‘Triple Cultivation Training’:

  • Body (Jing)
  • Energy (Chi)
  • Mind (Shen)

At the beginning of your training, the focus will be more on preparing the body and mind, letting go of tensions, learning how to relax and remain calm, increasing flexibility, stamina and ease of movement.

The weekly practice will include Yoga, Dao Yin, Qigong, Stances and aspects of Kung Fu, all helping prepare you for more in-depth and advanced training.

Training includes Opening the Way, Entering the Way and The Way of the Warrior.

I look forward to sharing the benefits of these beautiful arts with you.
