Welcome to UK Shaolin Temple’s Official Website. UK Shaolin Temple is a registered charity in England and Wales.
We are a unique organisation that exists to share, promote and preserve Shaolin culture. The ‘Shaolin’ culture refers to the activities, philosophies and lifestyles specific to the Chan Buddhist Shaolin Temple. These include a number of physical and philosophic activities such as Shaolin Kung Fu, Qi Gong, Tai Chi and meditation.
In addition, as the Shaolin culture is not a self-contained entity but heavily influenced by its environment and wider culture, we are also committed to engage people with many aspects of wider Chinese culture. This includes its art, language, philosophies, folk traditions and worldviews.UK Shaolin Temple strives to present these cultural traditions in their purest form. By engaging people in these activities we believe that physical, mental and social wellbeing may be improved. This is achieved by keeping active, becoming conscious of our mental states and engaging with different cultures and lifeways.
