Welcome to Shaolin Temple USA

Shaolin Temple USA is the first official North American branch of the world famous Songshan Shaolin Temple in Henan Province of China, the original Shaolin Temple established in 495 AD. Songshan Shaolin Temple is the birthplace of Chinese Chan (Zen) Buddhism and Shaolin Kung Fu.

Under the direction of Founder and Executive Director Master Shi YanRan—34th generation Shaolin Temple disciple, 4 Shaolin Temple Culture Centers were established to carry on the 1,500-year old traditions of Shaolin Temple, with the mission to share Shaolin Kung Fu Chan culture with the American people.

People of all backgrounds, faiths, ages and athletic abilities are welcome at Shaolin Temple USA.

Shaolin Kung Fu is a time-tested, comprehensive system for physical and spiritual wellness. At Shaolin Temple USA Culture Centers, students learn and grow from traditional Shaolin training and culture. Shaolin Chan cultivation and training disciplines transcend language and cultural differences as a direct form of growth and understanding. Students find many paths to the Temple. Some students seek to build better health and spiritual well-being, while others train for self-defense or flexibility. Disciplined practice enhances harmony of body and mind.
