Martial Arts & self-defense is how you take your power back! But if your martial art (or physical activity) is destroying your body, it's completely counter-productive and essentially worthless to your long-term health and well-being!

The Chinese Shao-Lin Center empowers people through the ancient art of Shao-Lin Kung-Fu: a martial system devised 1500 years ago to heal, strengthen, and transform your body to a higher level of being!

Chao Kuo Chiu of the 8 Drunken Immortals Fighting System!
Begins Saturday, June 4th, 2-3pm (for 3 weeks only)!
Open to Brown Belts and above!

Part of royal family (through his sister's marriage) Chao Kuo Chiu held a high official post. He was stern and ruthless, but after a series of terrible events, he was able to transform his life, his attitude, and his perspective by following the way of the Tao. He achieved immortality, but is said to still be living here on Earth...

This form and training teaches us, among other things, that self-improvement will be a trial, but well worth the reward in the end. This martial fighting style embodies all of Chao Kuo Chiu; deceptive, powerful, ruthless, expansive, adaptable, athletic, regal, flexible, steady, calm, and centered.

The form takes us on his life's journey, from Imperial Magistrate to Awakened Master!

Don't miss it!

As Traditional Shao-Lin Kung-Fu's primary purpose is two-fold (self-defense and health), it contains an area of training known as Chi Kung. This involves specific ancient breathing and movement exercises that initiate, regulate, and promote the flow of energy throughout the body.

Some of the Chi Kung that we teach is over 2000 years old and has been handed down from Shaolin master to Shaolin master for the past 1500 years!

Chi Kung training is ESSENTIAL to health, longevity, and martial skill & ability.

Our Story

Shao-Lin (Shaolin) Kung-Fu (Gong Fu) is a 1500 year old Chinese martial art developed by the monks in Honan Province for health, mental and physical conditioning, and self-defense. The system encompasses empty hand, the 18 classical weapons, animal fighting styles, and Wooden Man training. Internal areas include Tai Chi, Pa Kua, Hsing-I, and ancient breathing & meditation.

The Chinese Shao-Lin Center (CSC) of New Mexico serves Albuquerque and the surrounding area, including Rio Rancho, Placitas, Los Lunas, Tijeras, Santa Fe, and Taos. Located in Albuquerque, the New Mexico school is part of a network of 9 centers that span across the Southwest United States and reach as far as the country of Spain.

We offer the MOST AFFORDABLE rates for martial arts in New Mexico. Training at the Chinese Shao-Lin Center of New Mexico is so comprehensive and inexpensive that it can replace having to go to a gym, running, swimming, taking self-defense courses, yoga, cross fit, self-defense, meditation & tai chi, or cross training. You get all of that - and so much more - for $50 per month with a 1 year membership! That includes over 8 hours per week of Shao-Lin Kung-Fu training!

For more information on the Chinese Shao-Lin Centers, please see our website: www.shaolinNM.com.
