This website is your link to the Shaolin Temple in China. Yes, I mean THE Shaolin Temple... not a temple nearby or in another country, but the real, original Shaolin Temple in Henan, China.
How is this possible? Let me tell you a brief story: Many years ago I (webmaster and kung fu Master David Woods) trained in the Northern Shaolin Academy in Jilin, China. There I studied under Shaolin Master Wang Xin Peng, a Shaolin monk. We got along great and he considered me to be a good student. We kept in touch over the years and now we are business partners. Master Wang's uncle was the late Shi De Qian, abbot of the Shaolin Temple. So now you see the connection?
Shaolin Master Wang is available to teach you now. One of the best things about learning from Master Wang is that he speaks English. You can stay in a room 10 minutes from the Shaolin Temple. Most days you will train in the training grounds where your room is, sometimes you will train in the beautiful Song mountain or other surrounding natural areas, and sometimes you will train within the Shaolin Temple itself. No matter where you are, you will be with one of the greatest fighting monks alive today, Shaolin Master Wang Xin Peng! Trust me, you will not be dissappointed!
Shaolin Master Wang will teach you from about 5:30 am until about 6:30 pm. After that you may continue to practice, learn Chinese culture and language, or just rest. You may learn weapons, qigong, taiji, and of course, Shaolin gongfu including weapons. Master Wang will teach you whatever you want.
Other Shaolin masters are also available to teach with Master Wang, so you will have more than one instructor in Shaolin Kung Fu!
If you are interested in going to the original source of all martial arts to learn from a Shaolin Master, just call me or email me (use the form on the "Sign Me Up" page). The price is very reasonable, the living conditions are comfortable, and the training is unbelieveable! We will make all the arrangements for you. You are responsible for getting there, but we are more than happy to help you with that too.
