Welcome to the UK Shaolin Temple official website. The UK Shaolin Temple is a UK registered charity. Our organisation is dedicated to the study of the Ch'an Buddhism and culture. The activities of the UK Shaolin Temple involve teaching the Ch'an path to enlightenment, which includes its philosophy, meditation and the physical traditions of the Shaolin culture. In addition, our other services include Shaolin cultural instruction and performance services. All of the proceeds go towards realising our goal: to help people to live well.
This website details the purpose and activities of the UK Shaolin Temple. You can find out more about our mission, campaign and learn about the many ways that you can get involved. This site also provides an introduction to the Ch'an Buddhist and Shaolin cultures, which are both rich and unique traditions.

The Shaolin culture was taught to the monks of the Shaolin Temple as a physical form of meditation. The UK Shaolin Temple continues this tradition today. Practicing the physical tradition of Shaolin has many benefits to one's physical, mental and social wellbeing. It can also be used to learn about the true nature of ourselves and thus is complementary with study of Ch'an Buddhist philosophy.
Our Kung Fu classes are open to everyone, regardless of your age, or your physical ability. We welcome everyone to the UK Shaolin Temple to study the Ch'an and Shaolin cultures. Students can choose from a variety of physical traditions to suit their needs and desires. We offer Shaolin Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, San Da, Ch’an meditation and Ch'an Buddhism.
