Welcome to Shaolin Temple USA

San Francisco - Headquarters
Fremont, California

Shaolin Temple USA is the first official North American branch of the world famous Songshan Shaolin Temple in Henan Province of China, the original Shaolin Temple established in 495 AD. Songshan Shaolin Temple is the birthplace of Chinese Chan (Zen) Buddhism and Shaolin Kung Fu.

Under the direction of Founder and Executive Director Master Shi YanRan—34th generation Shaolin Temple Buddhist Monk, a team of Shaolin Temple Warrior Monks is stationed at Shaolin Temple USA to carry on the 1,500-year old traditions and training disciplines of Shaolin Temple. Their mission is to share Shaolin culture with the American people. Shaolin Temple USA teaches Shaolin Kung Fu Chan (Zen) through the disciplines of Shaolin Kung Fu and Qigong. 

Students of all backgrounds, faiths, ages and athletic abilities are welcome at Shaolin Temple USA.

Shaolin Kung Fu is a time-tested, comprehensive system for physical and spiritual wellness. At Shaolin Temple USA Culture Centers, students learn and grow from traditional Shaolin training and culture. Shaolin Chan cultivation and training disciplines transcend language and cultural difference as a direct form of growth and understanding. Students find many paths to the Temple. Some students seek to build better health and spiritual well-being, while others train for self-defense or flexibility. Disciplined practice enhances harmony of body and mind.
