Kung Fu study program at Shaolin Temple

SCIC Beijing's Shaolin Kung Fu program is arranged at the Lianong Fang (Kung Fu Training Hall) of the Shaolin Temple in Song Shan in Henan province. The temple was founded in the 5th century, and is a centre for Chan Buddhism. The temple also has a history of Kung Fu development and training stretching back thousands of years. 

Shaolin Kung Fu is characterized by its pragmatic and straightforward nature. It is accurate and precise, with solid but flexible footwork, and all forms are practiced along a straight line. Internal training is as important as external training, although precedence is given to external training at early levels.
