Let’s Start Your Adventure

This is our fourth annual summer camp for UK Shaolin Temple in Southampton, UK. We had a fantastic time during the previous three years, with many children, families and individuals coming together to enjoy authentic Kung Fu training.

This year we are expanding our summer camp to offer you more activities, more fun and excitement. This year we will be offering more of traditional Kung Fu training, with forms and weapons skills. On top of that other training activities will feature including San DaMeditationQi GongTai Chi. All camp attendees receive a free UKST T-Shirt.

Shifu Shi Yanmin, a 34th Generation Shaolin Warrior Monk from the Shaolin Temple, and his disciple Shifu Chen Miaoshan (Martine Niven) will head all training. These teachers have over 50 years combined Chinese martial arts experience.

You will get a taste of training every day, seven days a week, just as they do in the Shaolin Temple in China. For those of you who are considering Kung Fu training in China, this event is a great taster experience. Equally, it is a great opportunity for anyone who would like to have a go at more in-depth Shaolin training and other Chinese culture activities.

Alongside training, we will deliver a host of Chinese cultural activities to immerse yourself in the culture and learn some new skills and hobbies. The activities include Chinese tea ceremony, Chinese calligraphy, Chinese language sessions, and learning to make homemade Chinese dumplings. You will also learn some practical Tuina massage techniques. We will also take you to visit natural areas within Southampton, the New Forest, and Bournemouth for some traditional outdoor training in the sunshine.

The event is suitable for anyone: adults, children, and families. Our training is challenging but empowering and gets you thinking differently about your abilities, and enables you to feel more confident in your body. We are also accommodating to any existing physical impairments and injuries. Please contact us directly if you have any specific queries about the training.
