School Introduction

The Maling Shaolin Kung Fu School is a small-scale academy that has been teaching international students since it was founded in later 2009 by the 32nd generation of Shaolin Warrior Monk Shi Xing Jian ( Master Bao). Master Bao is the headmaster and founder of the academy. He teaches the daily tai chi classes, as well as traditional Shaolin forms and several other kung fu styles.

On average there are 3 kung fu Masters teaching at the academy. During busy periods this is increased, so that students always train in groups of maximum 8 10 students per Master. Most of our masters speak (at least basic) English, but we also have a translator living at the academy to help with communicating and questions about daily life.
