The Shaolin Temple/Monastery said to be the birthplace of martial arts. It is a chan buddhist temple at Song Shan, near Zhengzhou City, Henan province. You will be taught forms and movements currently taught at the Temple here in the UK with the opportunity to train abroad as you progress with your training. Sanshu Uk has connections to the SANSHOU circuit and can offer you traditional kung fu tuition, sanda, self defence, fitness and the opportunity to compete in the UK and Asia. Our lessons are hard and structured so that you benefit from attending our academy without false aspirations or goals.


Our Academy is fully equipped to handle all different types of training. We have crash mats and ropes to climb, springboards and equipment. Initially students will be taught foundation forms taught at the Shaolin Temple and will be given the option of learning self defense sanshou, boxing, thai boxing and Qin na. This will lead on to further advanced open hand and weapon forms. Weapons currently taught at SANSHU UK include Dao - Chinese sword, Pu Dao - Horse cutter, Staff, Nine section whip and nunchaku to name a few. Sanshu Uk will be promoting Qi gong and will have various visits from Qi gong masters from China.


Our Academy is open minded and therefore students will be given 1 months worth of Free Kung Fu training initially to see if they are suited to the Shaolin Style. Within this month you will be tested on dedication, motivation and character and then formally asked to become a member if you wish. We treat our students as one big family, joining sanshu uk is like inheriting 100 brothers and sisters all looking to help each other out to improve and develop our skill. There is no politics we welcome anybody from any, style or background and are always open to improve what we can offer our members. Amituofo Amituofo Amituofo!
