Return to Shaolin 2010

This August, Shifu Shi Yan Ming and the USA Shaolin Temple will journey to China for an unforgettable three weeks of training. For the first time ever, the USA Shaolin Temple’s “Return to Shaolin” is open to the public. We invite you to join us on this once in a lifetime odyssey.

The first three days will be spent visiting the birthplace of Chan Philosophy. At the historical Shaolin Temple in Henan, China, Shifu Shi Yan Ming will show his disciples and students their heritage – the place where he grew up training in the ways of Action Meditation.

After visiting the Shaolin Temple, Shifu Shi Yan Ming will take the group to his brother’s school in Henan province. The remainder of the trip, (18 days!), will be spent experiencing modern day training in China. Everyone will have the opportunity to train “from early morning to late evening, sharpen your blade,” as derived from the meaning of the words “Kung Fu”.

In this chance of a lifetime, we invite you to experience Shaolin training through the eyes of a master warrior. The trip cost will be $4000 and will include international and domestic airfare, local transportation, accommodations (3 stars or better), and training.

To register you must make a deposit of $2000 or payment in full by May 1st. Space is limited, so we encourage you to register soon. Whether a novice or expert, anyone looking for intensive training or an unforgettable experience of Shaolin is welcome.

When: August 7 – 28
