Our school :

In 2018, Wudang Shaolin Dream opened its own Chinese martial arts school directly in Shaolin a hundred meters from the Shaolin Temple in Shaolin village in the mountains away from the tourist area.

This allows everyone to enjoy the setting, the traditional aspect of Shaolin, calm … without having to face the tourist side that represents the temple of Shaolin. So we can take advantage of the good Shaolin combined with the good of being a school by offering many courses.

By this means, we propose all new types of training that is traditional, competitions-oriented … or new training methods that combine Western science / education with Chinese tradition / expertise.

The Shaolin Temple was built around 495 by Emperor Xiao Wen under the Dynasty Wei (4th to 6th century) in honor of the monk Tuo bao.
