Derived from the Shaolin Temple, most Kung Fu (gōngfu) today still bears strong resemblances to the traditional Shaolin Kung Fu style. Bei Shaolin (Northern Shaolin) may have been the first branch of a Chinese martial art to branch off from the Shaolin Temple. The result from such spin-offs is a nearly endless series of styles with all their different forms, movements, techniques, and ideas about defense and fighting strategies. At the root of these myriad styles, however, is the original Shaolin Temple Kung Fu which is what is taught at our academy.
Kung Fu is surprisingly still little understood in the U.S. While many schools exist, it would be a worthwhile venture for any would-be martial arts student to investigate Kung Fu along with the other styles found at our Academy. Apparently Chinese marketing strategies are not quite as effective in the West as Korean and Japanese have been. As a result, this hides a great many treasures available such as the beautiful, practical, and incredibly powerful martial art of Shaolin Kung Fu.
