Shaolin Kung Fu came from the martial art form developed by monks of the Shaolin Buddhist Temple in the Hunan province of Northern China. The geography of the North influenced the “long fist styles” with their fully extended striking, long deep stances and dynamic kicking techniques.
The first hour of training combines conditioning, stance training, and independent practice. The class is geared towards intermediate and advanced level Northern Shaolin Chinese Martial Arts forms. The foundational training these forms provide builds strength, flexibility, and coordination. Intermediate forms refine techniques and provide further diversity of movement. The internal training focuses on developing energy circulation throughout the body, strengthening the internal organs, developing sensitivity, and concentrating power for martial application. Students learn at their own pace based on ability and inclination.
One with Heart's Northern Shaolin program is open to intermediate and advanced martial arts students. If you are new to One with Heart and have experience training in another martial arts contact us about joining the Shaolin Kung Fu program.
