Shaolin Kung Fu Chan

10:30 am
Fremont Main Library, Fukaya Room
Fremont  CA

Come to experience the world-renowned Shaolin Kung Fu Chan. There is a saying that all kung fu (martial arts) under the sun originates from Shaolin Temple of China (established in AD 495). For over 1500 years, kung fu meets Chan (Zen) at this ancient monastery as a life style that evolved into a holistic system for physical and spiritual wellness. With Shaolin Kung Fu Chan (Zen), people get to experience the unique workout for body and mind. They exercise their bodies with kung fu and their minds with Chan (Zen).

Fortunately, this age-old Shaolin Temple discipline has a local presence. Shaolin Temple USA, its North American branch, opened its door in Fremont in 2007 to share the wonders and health benefits of Shaolin Kung Fu Chan (Zen) with the American people.

This fitness session will begin with a live demonstration of the kung fu prowess by Shaolin Temple USA’s masters and students, followed by a full-on body and mind workout, including self-defense techniques, and a Chan (Zen) session.

Please call 510-745-1401 or TTY 888-663-0660 for more information.
