SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: In the continued spirit of putting the health and safety of our community first, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to close our physical center and GO VIRTUAL (check out the Virtual Classes tab) in order to take bold measures to further mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and help save lives in our community. We will communicate any adjustments or decisions of physical reopening of the school so STAY TUNED. Please be safe and hope to connect with you VIRTUALLY!


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.

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.


We are proud to offer the following unique and authentic services to the St. Louis community:

  • Virtual kung fu classes (during COVID-19 quarantine)
  • Kids, youth, adult kung fu & taichi classes
