Their mission is to share Shaolin culture with the American people. Shaolin Temple USA teaches Shaolin Kung Fu Chan (Zen) through the disciplines of Shaolin Kung Fu and Qigong.

At Shaolin Temple USA Culture Centers, students learn and grow from traditional Shaolin training and culture. Shaolin Chan cultivation and training disciplines transcend language and cultural difference as a direct form of growth and understanding. Students find many paths to the Temple. Some students seek to build better health and spiritual well-being, while others train for self-defense or flexibility. Disciplined training enhances harmony of body and mind.
