“天下功夫出少林，少林功夫甲天下”。武术源于中国，是由历代少林先祖在过去1500年间不断积累而成的精华，是中国的一种传统文化特色。纽约少林寺创立于1995年，后更名为纽约少林寺功夫中心。现任校长是蓝超海，法名延深，河南开封人，嵩山少林寺第三十四代俗家弟子、嵩山少林寺海外总会副会长兼总教练、美国武术家协会创办人兼常务副会长。 “Kung Fu is originally from Shaolin. Shaolin Kung Fu is one of the best in the world”. Wushu originated in China and it carries the essence of the Shaolin ancestors, its history and has been a part of traditional Chinese culture for over 1500 years. The Shaolin Temple in New York was founded in 1995 and later renamed to the New York Shaolin Temple Kung Fu Center, Inc. The current president is Chaohai Lan, also called Yanshen (Buddhist Name). He was born in Kaifeng, Henan and is the 34th generation of Shaolin Temple disciples of Songshan Shaolin Temple. He is the vice president and head coach of the Shaolin Temple Overseas Association of Songshan Shaolin Temple Overseas Head, and the founder and executive vice president of the US Wushu Masters Association. 纽约少林寺功夫中心首先注重于学者的思想品德和身心的结合。希望通过这种独特的“禅拳一体”教学方式更好的传播和增值中国的传统武术文化。第二，我们崇尚于自由式教学模式，让学生选择性上课，快乐的锻炼身体和学习自我防护。第三，我们不断地为学生争取和创造展现自我的机会。例如，学生可以通过参加夏令营、国内外比赛、政府、企业、社区或文化交流等活动，来提高学生们的积极性和自信心。武术不仅仅是中国的宝贵文化遗产，更是世界的瑰宝。我们的信念就是：从你我他做起，让更多的人了解武术，热爱武术，受益于武术。 New York Shaolin Temple Kung Fu Center primary focus is on the combination of exercising and improving moral character, mind and body. Through this unique “Chan Quan Yi Ti” teaching method, traditional Chinese values and traditional Wushu culture are spread to each student. Second, we advocate a free-style teaching method, allowing students to selectively attend classes and enjoy physical, academic and mental exercises. Third, we create and find opportunities for students to improve their enthusiasm and self-confidence such as summer camps, national and international competitions, governmental activities, business or community performances and cultural exchanges. Wushu is not only China’s precious cultural heritage, but also a treasure of the world. Our belief is wushu starts from within. Once you understand wushu, you will love wushu and help others understand the benefits of wushu.
