Unforgettable & life changing
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 realise 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 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.

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.
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 announce it on the website.
Thank you for understanding.
Shifu Shi Yanjun is a 34th Generation Shaolin Warrior Monk, a disciple of Venerable Abbot Shi Yongxin, and a 17th Generation Disciple of Meihua Quan, a disciple of Grandmaster Han Baiguang.
Shifu Shi Yanjun takes the Yin-Yang approach to training his students. He believes that having a balanced mind and body leads to great success when training in Kung Fu.
“The purpose of Kung Fu isn’t to deplete your body of its power. Training in Kung Fu is meant to develop your internal and external Qi. If you wish to preserve your body’s energy and strength for years to come, you must train intelligently.” – Shifu Shi Yanjun
Shifu Yanjun adapts his training style to your age, body, health, and seasons. At the Shaolin Temple, your training isn’t limited to one specific style of Kung Fu. You’ll learn various techniques to help you become powerful from the inside – out.

what students say about us
“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.”
