Kung Fu styles we teach
China’s wide geographical diversity comes with unique social, cultural, and philosophical expressions. Kung Fu is part of this diversity, with numerous styles featuring historical roots and values, reflecting the human, physical scenery, and cultural heritage in its splendour.
The exact number of styles is still unknown due to the definition of what a style and its elements mean. Geographical, philosophical, and religious classification distinguishes between Kung Fu styles depending on whether they are located North or South the Yangtze River (Northern and Southern styles). The philosophical classification concerns Qi or the inner energy flow, as ‘internal’ or ‘external’ depending on whether it seeks to tame Qi internally or externally. The religious classification gathers styles based on whether Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism most influence them.
Although Shaolin Quan is a mixture of traditional Kung Fu styles, it also includes a profound cultural and ideological content. To a Shaolin warrior monk, the power of understanding is more critical than keeping fit and self-defence. Moreover, if one is sincere, one has the capability of knowledge at the fingertips. Only then will one be able to realize the significance of Shaolin Kung Fu.
In Kung Fu training, one must understand its spirit and essence. One needs to understand the philosophy of life through Kung Fu practice, attaining a balance of mind and body similar to the state of mind reached in meditation. To a Shaolin warrior monk, knowing a routine without understanding its inner meaning—Kung Fu practiced for its own sake— is only skin-deep knowledge. It is, at best, a showy performance. Kung Fu is genuine only when it combines both form and spirit.
Shifu Shi Yanjun
My mission is to create skilled, fit and confident Shaolin Warriors overflowing with QI (energy) and confidence.
I didn’t just stay at The Shaolin Temple for a couple of months like most online “masters” teaching Shaolin Kung Fu.… I was sent to The Temple when I was a young kid. I was always getting into trouble fighting with other kids. I was known on the streets of my home village Du Jia Cun as a “chubby fighter.”
The Temple got me out of trouble…
… it rescued a scared and angry kid from poverty and directed his energy towards discipline and excellence. The Temple has been my home ever since.
I became a certified Shaolin Master at the age of 17…
And now, I’ve trained in Kung Fu for over 35+ years and coached Shaolin Warriors worldwide for over 20 years.
… I’ve helped hundreds of people, many of which came to me unfit, lethargic and depressed — to become True Shaolin Warriors through our ancient Yin and Yang training.
I want to continue helping those who have had enough of feeling sluggish, out of shape and unhappy because of “modern life”.
…And I want to continue building on the legendary legacy of Shaolin, my great home, by creating outstanding Warriors who can carry the name forward!
So, if you wish to discover the authentic, ancient path to becoming a confident, fit and powerful Shaolin Warrior inside the Shaolin Temple Chengdu… then you can step inside our gates.

“THANK YOU SHIFU SHI YANJUN! I think I cannot grab in words what you taught me from my life from you. And I mean not only about the Kung Fu. You showed me every day to be sincere, to be healthy, to live at the moment. You trained me in willpower. I never saw a person before in my life who is so present with everything. The eyes, the body and the Qi. I always will remember you and see you as a big Teacher for life.”
