Welcome to the UK Shaolin Temple official website. The UK Shaolin Temple is a UK registered charity.
We are a unique organisation that exists to share, promote and preserve Shaolin culture. This Chinese culture has a history of over 1,500 years. It features many aspects including numerous physical arts, such as Kung Fu and Tai Chi and a distinct spiritual culture, which features Qi Gong and Meditation.
People all over the world engage with Shaolin culture because of its history, its distinctiveness and because it possesses practices that benefit many aspects of wellbeing. However, only a minority of these practices are taught in their most original, pure and concentrated form. UK Shaolin Temple strives to present Shaolin culture in its authentic form and additionally aims to engage as many people as possible with wider Chinese culture. We do this so that they might enrich lives and to cultivate their wellbeing.
