The Shaolin Arts
We are extremely proud of the strength and tradition of our Shaolin arts. Ours are the genuine arts of the Fukienese Shaolin Temple (which inspired so many other martial arts, including Karate). We practice our arts the way they were taught by the Nam Yang founder, Master Ang Lian Huat (1924-84). These are not competition, gymnastic arts or demonstration arts, but genuine Kung Fu. These are the arts which made the Shaolin monks so famous; these are the arts practiced by the secret societies which overthrew the last Chinese emperor; these are the secret arts only recently revealed to non-Chinese.
Our arts train the body’s ‘chi’ - the energy which permeates all living things and has profound effects on our health and well being. They transform the muscle and tendon of the body so that it becomes elastic and can snap out with incredible speed and force. They train us to respond so sensitively to touch that we can feel an opponent’s move before we can see it and counter it in a split second.
