The Shaolin Temple Art Center welcomes you to our site. We are proud to announce that former St. Louis Shaolin Kung Fu School in partnership with Shaolin Temple from China has expanded into Shaolin Temple ART Center here in St. Louis. The center promotes the authentic Chinese Shaolin Temple culture in its services, as well as in its collaboration with local talented artists on showcasing and teaching their art form under the same roof! That's right! Your child can now experience multiple arts in the same location under the trusted system of values fostered initially by the Shaolin Kung Fu School.

The Shaolin Temple ART Center was founded by Master Shifu Xing Xue, who trained and lived at Shaolin Temple for 15 years in China. Shifu Xing Xue is currently the ONLY master in Midwest with official permission to represent the authentic Shaolin Temple (from China) kung fu, tai chi, and qi gong.
