Martial Arts For Body AND Mind.

Looking for a fitness experience that doesn't leave your brain at the door? Good kung fu is physically demanding and intellectually challenging. Kung fu requires superior strength, flexibility and balance. But that's only half of it. To be truly effective, kung fu requires understanding the physics of a body in motion, self-mastery, self-honesty, focus and determination.

Every session at Shaolin Arts includes a demanding workout

Based on the methods of the famed Shaolin warrior monks and led by expert coaches, Shaolin Arts provides training that is:

  • Constantly varied
  • High intensity
  • Functional
  • Calorie-buring
  • Sweat-inducing
  • Scalable from beginner to advanced

  • Traditional forms

Amazing Community

At Shaolin Arts, you're not just joining a gym or martial arts school, you're joining a community that can move you past being stuck toward achieving your health, fitness, strength, weight, and being-a-generally-formidable-person goals.

Being part of a community means you will have friends here. From the instructors to the other athletes, you'll have people who care if you come, people who love working out with you and chatting with you afterward, people who genuinely want to see you succeed.

In the end, your potential is irrelevant if you’re not surrounded by people who help you realize it.

What Others Are Saying

  • Sibok Workman and the instructors are amazing. They lead by example, are thorough and approachable. I, for one, feel my life has been enhanced through their guidance and patience. Shaolin Arts is the best place for self improvement, self defense, and health. Not to mention that I am in the best physical shape I have ever been in my whole life. I cannot praise them enough.

  • I have been training here only a little over a month so far, but have really enjoyed it. The group classes have good variation to not get burned out/bored on a specific focus, but overlap enough to keep progressing. Most classes split time about half technique based strength/endurance/flexibility training and half technique/form lesson/practice.

  • Awesome place! Both the instructors and other students are very welcoming to new students. Instructors are very knowledgeable and good coaches. Workouts can be as hard as you make them, the instructors will always find ways to push you without hurting you. Group classes usually consist of 4 - 8 people which is small enough to still receive individual attention and large enough to learn something from other students. Instructors will coach you through both the workout as well as learning new techniques and forms. You do not have to be in the best shape of your life to have a good workout and get something out of these classes! Its a great way to push yourself and learn a new skill at the time. Cannot speak highly enough about the instruction and workouts I have received here.

  • I have been attending Shaolin Arts (Kung Fu) for over a year now and I love it. I use to do Taekwon Do for 2 years, and the experience, training and focusing is much better at Shaolin Arts. I would recommend this studio to anyone. The instructors here are great.
