Kung Fu

At Shaolin Arts Kung Fu we teach by the five classic Shaolin Animals: tiger, leopard, dragon, crane and snake. Or, traditionally called Shaolin Chuan Fa Wu Ling Xing. Within this complete system both hard and soft, focus with fluidity, are embraced. Each animal represents a different body type and personality. More information is available here, but better yet, come in to experience it for yourself!

T’ai Chi Chuan

Tai Chi is a traditional program for developing the internal energy of the body. Stress reduction, improved blood pressure, balance, muscle tone, increased awareness are a few of the common results of this gentle yet invigorating activity. Chen style of Tai Chi is the oldest and, in fact, the original form of Tai Chi Chuan. It has many unique characteristics, which you can learn about here. Today, young and old enjoy the teachings and practices of Tai Chi. Chi Gung, or Qi Gung, are present in every movement, and Meditation is also taught.

Come in, get started, and enjoy a new level of Fitness in your life! 

Self Defense

Martial arts did not become famous until it was discovered the Shaolin Monks could not be easily defeated in combat. These peaceful Monk did not go out looking for fights, but in all lands and times there are those who want to hurt others. A good Self Defense program must train youth and adults to recognize and avoid dangerous situations, to be able to control with the least amount of injury, and to completely remove any threat if needed. Stop by today and begin your self defense training!

Mixed Martial Arts

At Shaolin Arts we have always used a complete program of Martial Arts. This is why our self defense systems work so well. Students will have techniques that work for any body type, against any body type, in any environment. At Shaolin Arts our programs combine long range kicking, closer range punching, knees, elbows and close range Chin Na or grappling, and more, offering an excellent workout and a powerful skill to students. Some might call what we do Mixed Martial Arts, but over the past few years that term has evolved to now refer to a sporting event designed to entertain fans. We have more depth in our Martial Arts than just entertainment. Begin your training now!


The linear, focused strikes of Karate are a part of the complete system taught at Shaolin Arts. Karate is well documented to have come from the Shaolin systems. Focus, confidence, simple movement and mental development benefit your life. Come in and let the Arts change your life!


Understanding the past helps one understand the present. If we do not learn from the past then we will repeat it – for good or for bad. The idea is to have enough knowledge to have a choice. Discover here how peaceful Shaolin systems designed for health, longevity and personal development were also discovered to be the greatest tools for self defense. So much so, military were first defeated, and then adopted these principles to become a Martial Art.
