Shaolin Temple

Temple Branches

When the Song Dynasty began, Fu Yu was the abbot of the Shaolin Temple. He invited the best martial artists to come to the original Shaolin Temple at Songshan. At the Temple they discussed and fought. They combined all the martial arts styles into what is now known as Shaolin Kungfu. Shifu Shi Yan Ming is the founder and abbot of the USA Shaolin Temple and the following temple branches. We are looking forward to planting further seeds in Russia, Italy, Germany and more.
