Our style of martial art originates from the Shaolin temples in both northern and southern China, and is now taught at centres around the world.

We employ traditional training methods which have been used for centuries to teach Kung Fu to Shaolin monks, alongside more modern methods to help our students learn self-defence techniques and improve their fitness.

We believe that this helps our students to get away from the pressures and distractions of modern life and develop mental and physical strength whilst learning a traditional Chinese martial art which is relevant to modern life.

Nam Pai Chuan Shaolin Kung Fu is a complex martial art with intricacies that take time and patience to perfect and can only be taught from an experienced master to a dedicated student.

Unlike some fitness classes where students are welcome to drop in when they like, we believe that in order to become a martial artist, regular training is essential and students should respect the value of the knowledge given.

We invite new students to attend at least two or three sessions to experience the style of training we offer, before deciding whether to join one of our centres.

After this point we ask them to pay for a training uniform and to join the BCCMA (British Council for Chinese Martial Arts). We also ask them to make a commitment to their training by attending at least once a week and training outside of class to maintain their fitness and practice the techniques they learn. In return, we are committed to passing on techniques that will help them to learn Shaolin Kung Fu and to evolve as a martial artist for as long as they continue to train with us.
