Learn Traditional Kung Fu in China

Welcome to the official English website of our Shaolin Xinyiba Kung Fu school (official name: Shaolin Traditional Wushu Institute 少林传统武术学校). This website is to provide you with all the information you need when exploring for opportunities in regards to practicing Shaolin Kung Fu here in China. We welcome students and disciples from all over the world to train full-time at our school in the ancient arts of Shaolin Kung Fu 少林功夫, Xinyiba 心意把, as well as the more modern martial arts practices such as acrobatics, animal forms, MMA, Sanda. We currently have around 600 students at our school, living and training here, and over 20 highly qualified coaches and masters.

Our Shaolin Kung fu school is located in the small village called Xi (West) Shilipu, at the foot of Mt. Song, between the town of Dengfeng and the Shaolin Temple. It takes 10 minutes by bus or by car to get to either of them. Our school is an affiliate of the Shaolin Xinyiba Research Society 少林心意把研究会, and its purpose is passing on the traditional skills of Shaolin Kung Fu to the next generation. The Shaolin Xinyiba Research Society was founded by Master Hu Zhengsheng in 2012, thereby fulfilling the last wish of his master, Yang Guiwu.

Our society aims to research and to preserve the ancient skills and methods of Shaolin boxing, of Xinyiba, and its related styles. We actively promote and share knowledge with other martial artists – within China, and all over the world.

Our Shaolin Kung Fu School

The Shaolin Traditional Wushu Institute school is one of the few Kung Fu schools that openly teach authentic Shaolin Kung Fu to international students. Our Shaolin Kung Fu school is a small traditional school, which tries to provide it’s students a life-enriching experience by teaching them ancestral Kung Fu and provide an overall rich experience within the Chinese culture and the Shaolin way of life.

What makes our Shaolin Xinyiba Kung Fu school unique is that the legacy that we are keeping alive is a lineage that dates back to the late Ming dynasty, when Kung Fu master Ji Longfeng (or Ji Long), famous for his mastery of spear, developed Xinyi Kung Fu. It has been passed down to us through a well-documented lineage. Our traditional lineage’s training methods are passed down to our students openly, and the results can be seen in our successful national and international competitors, as well as all the Kung Fu schools founded by the disciples of master Hu Zhengsheng on all continents.

“Best experience of my life!”

“Best experience of my life!

Thousands of kilometers from my country, I felt at home while I stayed in this astonishing institute. Everyone is super welcoming, very friendly, always willing to provide you with anything you may need.

Concerning martial arts, the institute respects every letter of the phrase “kung fu Shaolin”. Traditional to its core, it provides you with tons of knowledge, taught by amazing instructors..”

Cid Belo – Portugal

“You’ll get addicted to grow your gongfu and yourself in here!”

“If you like Shaolin traditional teachings and practices (as well as “modern”) this is definitely your place. Master Hu as well as all the instructors are vastly knowledgeable and great teachers. Well prepared and kind people to whom I owe my amazing experience with this style that has helped me develop my gongfu in a way I couldn’t have done by myself.

A complete system of teachings with a unique and authentic insight into the Shaolin tradition and reality.

Highly recommended not only because of the Martial Arts aspect but also because of the camaraderie between students which make the journey so motivational and enriching. You’ll get addicted to grow your gongfu and yourself in here! :)”

Alejandra Sacanell – Spain

“the go-to place for all who aspire to become proficient teachers of Shaolin Gong Fu

“I have practiced TCMA for almost 2 decades and this is the go-to place for all who aspire to become proficient teachers of Shaolin Gong Fu

Thanks to the in-depth teachings of master Hu and of the coaches, I have acquired enough knowledge to open my own school, and many other students have done the same. I have visited other schools all across China but none have convinced me as much as master Hu’s school, at least in terms of the quality of the teachings.

The school also has a really good Sanda / Muay Thai / MMA group which has proven an amazing asset for testing my traditional skills.”

Joel Achermann from Switzerland

“I was addicted to the training and how it affected my body”

“I was traveling through Asia and when I was in the Shoalin temple someone told me about master Hu. That was back in 2013. I visited him and he invited me to stay at his school for a few days. Soon enough I was addicted to the training and how it affected my body. I cancelled the rest of my trip and the other flights and stayed for another 2 months. Since then I’ve been coming to the school as often as my work allowed and I’ve progressed more than I ever thought I’d be capable. It was a big transformation from my 2013 self to where I am now and I can’t thank Sifu Hu enough !!”
