SONGSHAN SHAOLIN TEMPLE
The birth place of Chinese martial arts & Chan Buddhism
Chinese culture represents Eastern culture. Shaolin culture is an integral part of Chinese culture. Famous for martial arts, Shaolin Temple is the birthplace of Chan Buddhism.
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 has to understand its spirit and its 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 practised 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.
Due to the pandemic, Shaolin Temple Yunnan is closed for admissions until March 2023. If the pandemic continues, we will post point the opening time to a further date, and we will announce it on the website.
Thank you for understanding.

kung fu styles we teach at Shaolin Temple Yunnan
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 splendor.
The exact number of styles is still unknown because it is 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.
