About Our School


OC Shaolin Kung Fu offers training in traditional Shaolin Kung Fu, one of the oldest and most famous styles of martial arts. Shaolin Kung Fu embraces defensive and offensive combat skills, while embodying the Chan (Zen) and Wu (Kung Fu) of the Shaolin temple.
Orange County Shaolin Kung Fu was founded in 2014 by Master Shi Yan Qing, a 34th generation Shaolin monk, under the authorization of the venerable Abbot Shi Yong Xin, the current leader of the Shaolin Temple in Songshan, China. Our mission is to share the Shaolin cultural heritage and our unique style of kung fu, and through that knowledge encourage our students to achieve self-betterment, self-discovery, and self-discipline.
We offer group classes for children and adults in traditional Shaolin Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, self-defense, sparring, weapons, and offer the opportunity to join our performance team. We also offer private lessons.
