Monocle is a London-based news, business, culture and design publication, available online and in large bookstores that carry international magazines. 

Justin Bergman, a correspondent of Monocle stationed in Shanghai interviewed our Executive Director Master Yanran (via telephone) in October, for an article about Shaolin Temple’s international outreach and overseas cultural centers. 

According to Mr. Bergman, he has chosen to feature Shaolin Temple USA from over 40 Shaolin cultural centers around the world because he finds that our organization is “very active with many interesting projects.”

Photographer Carlos Chavarría came to our Shaolin Culture Center in San Francisco and took many photos of the classes in progress. 10 photos of our Shifus and students have been published in the December 2014/January 2015 issue of Monocle, in Soft Power Survey Report — The Monk’s Tale.

Shaolin Kung Fu is a 1500-year-old comprehensive system for physical and spiritual wellness from the world-famous Shaolin Temple of China, established in 495 AD, the birthplace of Chan (Zen) Buddhism and Shaolin Kung Fu. The course will be taught by legendary martial monks from the ancient temple who are now stationed at Shaolin Temple USA, under the direction of 34th generation Shaolin Master Shi Yanran, named 2010 Martial Artist of the Year. Curriculum includes traditional Shaolin fist and weapons forms, Shaolin wellness exercises (qigong) and Chan (Zen) meditation. Participants will achieve harmony of body and mind through a well-balanced program, appropriate for active people of all ages who seek to create better health and well-being, train for self-defense, and improve strength and flexibility. Wear comfortable clothing and athletic shoes. Continuing participants will work with one Master to further their practice, while beginners or those wanting to review the movements at a slower pace will work with another Master. Continuing participants sign up for section 1. Beginners sign-up for section 2.

Hello from Shaolin Temple

Shaolin Temple USA Executive Director Master Shi Yanran led a group of students through a unique journey in Buddhist traditions and Shaolin Kung Fu at Songshan Shaolin Temple late June, 2011. The groups also took up the challenge of scaling the heights to Bodhidharma Cave and Sanhuang Camp on the majestic Songshan, or Zhongyue, the “Middle Mountain” located at the center among China’s five famous sacred mountains. The group paid homage to the Venerable Shaolin Abbot Shi Yongxin, joined the monks at their daily early morning sutra recitation session, dined with them at their vegetarian breakfast and lunch. Kung Fu lessons took place at Shaolin Temple and in the mountain where Shaolin warrior monks train. The journey’s experience was heightened by the enchanting Chan Music Shaolin Grand Ceremony with natural Songshan scenery as backdrop.
