About Shaolin Kungfu Zen - history and mastery

Shaolin Kungfu Zen guides students toward a harmony of spirit and body along with the achievement of personal goals. Shaolin Kungfu combines physical discipline and movement with Zen meditation during extensive practice with Shaolin boxing and traditional weapons. We promote modern martial arts methods and moral integrity so students benefit from Shaolin philosophy and traditional Chinese Shaolin Buddhist culture.

Classes at Shaolin Kungfu Zen, San Jose

We maintain martial arts etiquette in every class. Our goal is to foster strong mentoring relationships, diligent work, and learning together the five hallmarks of Wushu. These are folk culture, health education, hand and body movements, wrestle and capture techniques, and traditional weapons usage. Our practices are rigorous and incorporate the fundamentals of Kungfu: mental focus, breathing, stretching and flexibility, stance and posture, punching and kicking.

Shaolin Kungfu Zen offers clear and measurable goals supported by current international martial arts guidelines to advance the student through the nine levels of Kungfu in 16 steps. We guide students in honing powerful physical skills and developing a natural understanding of historical and philosophical Shaolin Kungfu Zen culture.

手把青秧插满田,低头便见水中天;六根清净方为道,退步原来是向前。 –唐· 弥勒祖师(布袋和尚)

Planting green seeding with hands all over the rice field; As one’s head lowered the sky in the water is seen. All six sense organs are pure, and only then one comprehends; Stepping backward is actually advancing forward.                                                                   Patriarch Maitreya
