Maitreya Happy Buddha Temple is the new branch of Songshan Shaolin Traditional Wushu Academy in South of China. The Academy location in North is still at Shaolin Temple but the Headmaster of the Academy will be teaching in the South of China location.

Shifu Shi Yanjun, the Headmaster of the Academy has been looking for the best place where students can train and live the whole year around. The Shaolin Temple area is extremely cold during the winter months therefore the training is limited to only external styles. This affects the quality of Kung Fu you learn and makes the progress slower. Summer months are extremely hot and in the recent years have been a huge lack of running water due to drought.

Maitreya Happy Buddha Temple is located in a perfect area with mild winters and not so hot summers. You can learn all year around in a very balanced way following the Yin-Yang principles.

Shifu Yanjun new Academy offers a varied and very traditional way equipment as well as training. Maitreya Temple is also the official location for the International Meihua Quan Federation training in China and the World Federation of Chan Meditation branch for foreign students.

You are welcome if you are looking for the most traditional and authentic training in China.
