A Multi-disciplinary Approach
Shaolin Kung Fu is a very comprehensive type of martial arts that utilizes every aspect of humanly movements. Initiated by Master Shi Yan Chan in 2001, students at Shaolin Temple Cultural Center (STCC) adopt so called "Multi-Aspect Refinement." It is a unique training method in which a person initially focuses on different aspects of Shaolin Kung Fu, then slowly discover his/her specialties.
In some way, practicing kung fu is like building a pyramid, where you would first build a wide foundation, then gradually narrows as you build towards the top.
This means that the topmost layer has the most support, but it relies heavily on every brick beneath it. If the any of the bottom layers become unstable or even collapse, the top layers will most certainly collapse with it. That is why the building the foundation is so important, no matter which craft you pursue.
Through practicing multi-aspect refinement, the students are able to identify their strengths and/or weakness early in the training. The strengths are preserved and further refined, while the weaknesses are corrected early on to avoid turning them into "bad habits," which can be detrimental to the development later on. By building a solid foundation, you can hone your skills and reach your highest potential!
The STCC offers a wide range of studies such as Traditional Shaolin Kung Fu, Taichi, Sanshou (Kickboxing), Modern Wushu, Lion Dance, and many more. While each study focuses on its own unique movements and techniques, the combinations of multiple studies have allowed these techniques to cross the boundaries and be integrated into your specialties. This is what Master Shi Yan Chan has fathomed during his 30+ years of Shaolin training. And he has helped thousands of students achieving their goals.
Personalized Training Plan
By observing the student's physical habits as well as personalities, Master Shi Yan Chan develops personalized training plans for each of his students, providing guidance and demonstration along their journey. Over course of Shaolin training, students have truly developed their own specialties and shown their inner strength to become better individuals.
One of the most important thing is, all of the students were once new at the bottom of the pyramid. And no one was ever born with Kung Fu. With that said, please explore our website and begin your journey in unlocking your highest potential today!
