北少林拳
Northern Shaolin

Kunwu Jian Performed by Hu Jiahao

“Northern Shaolin" is a colloquialism meaning, essentially, "external martial styles from north of the Yangzi River." This includes styles that actually came from the Shaolin Temple in Henan, as well as various family styles and descendants of military fighting methods.

Our school pulls material from four sources:

  • Zhaquan (Zha family style)
  • Changquan (also called Longfist)
  • Sun Bin Quan (an unorthodox style accredited to a crippled general)
  • Shaolinquan (material with roots in the temple itself)

Northern Shaolin teaches speed, agility, flexibility, and muscular endurance. It is also essential for building the structural foundation that the Internal styles require. It teaches the fundamentals of punching and kicking, stances, combinations, and tactics. It involves open-hand forms as well as weapons sets.

Despite it's vigorous nature, Northern Shaolin can be tackled at any age, from children to retirees. We tailor our teaching to match our students specific needs as much as possible.
