From its rich history to the present day, the Shaolin Kung Fu and Tai Chi taught at the Chinese Shaolin Centers have evolved into a comprehensive system of martial arts that is truly unique. Shaolin is not a single style with a single application made for a single type of individual, but stresses diversity, flexibility and depth. It is strength, self-defense, confidence and athletic ability meshed among many styles.
Originally conceived by the Buddhist Monks in the Honan Province of Northern China, Shaolin Kung Fu was developed as a way to discipline the mind and body, encompassing a wide range of styles and techniques. Our Kung Fu curriculum encompasses an amazing variety of styles, such as Classical Hua Fist, the famous Shaolin 5-Animals, Drunken Immortals, Preying Mantis and many more.
Tai Chi is the most famous of all the internal arts from China and is possibly the most practiced martial art in the world. Made popular in the West primarily for its health benefits, Tai Chi practitioners were often feared for their tremendous fighting skills. The Internal Arts Program at the Chinese Shaolin Centers begins by teaching our students Yang Tai Chi and continues their education with Bagua, Xing Yi, and more.
Encompassing the curriculum found in our adult program, the CSC Youth Program helps develop the minds and bodies of children ages 5 to 11. Taught at a pace more suited for children, the classes are fun, well-structured and promote discipline. The students in our Youth Program are continually challenged and are never bored with their martial arts development.
With several schools around Metro Atlanta, and affiliate programs in other states, the Chinese Shaolin Centers form a community dedicated to passing on the tradition of the ways of Shaolin (Shaolin-Tao). We are committed to life-long fitness, self-defense and mental well-being. We have well-structured classes that are both energetic and safe, taught by certified instructors. Our curriculum allows every student the opportunity to apply their strengths and challenge their weaknesses. We offer a journey of personal growth and development that teaches you to comprehend the difference between intellectual knowledge and internalized understanding. We invite you to come join us and see how our training can make a difference in your life.
