Practicing Shaolin Qigong & Kung Fu definitely strengthened my body, re-adjusted my spine and improved mind-focus. I am thankful to all my Shaolin Teachers and their genuine training since I feel healthier, more active and fresh throughout the day.
After studying with Shifu Kwong at the Westchester branch of Shaolin Temple Overseas Headquarters for a time, he saw what was needed for my continued progress and introduced me to Shifu Lan Chao Hai. I have stayed on as a disciple of Shifu as a result of his generosity, diligent instruction, and depth of knowledge. What makes Shifu different from other instructors is not only his eye for detail, or giving each individual student the attention needed to progress, but the fact that he sees our school and Shaolin Kung Fu in a larger cultural context. The time spent working hard with consistent effort proves beneficial for each student, the class as a whole, and the entire community.

I studied Kung Fu for over a year now and I became much more active and I am able to do some cool things. Well when I just started I struggled because I didn’t do anything for almost 2 years, I just stayed home ate, play, sleep this made me fat and sick pretty much. However, after some time I started getting healthier and started to get in shape again. Then as time went on I learned many new forms and many new moves and I was able to go to performances and competitions. That’s not all I was able to meet slot of new people from different cultures and learn new things from them too. These thing make Kung Fu mean so much to me. It’s like part of my life now. I believe that Kung Fu is good for your health and it’s good way to interact with people and experience new things.
Through out the months I learned Kung fu, I realized that there is more than high kicks and acrobatic forms. Kung fu teaches you each movement practical and can be used to defend against an attack. Kung fu also trains your mind and your body to develop a coordination and confidence. Kung fu improves health, flexibility, and strengthening different part of the body. Kung fu means to have fate in yourself, learn to have teamwork, and not giving up easily.

The New York Shaolin Temple Kung Fu Center is wonderful. It has given my two children unique skills that will improve their lives in many aspects, especially physically, mentally and has even brought us closer together as a family.
What makes this class different than any other class that I have sent my children to is the phenomenal teacher. From the very beginning I could tell that Master Lan really cares about and likes children. He is able to balance discipline and fun during class so the children listen, concentrate and have fun at the same time. In addition, every child in the class is given the attention they need to grow.
I wish for the continued success of this school.

Last summer, we enrolled our two kids in New York Shaolin Temple Kung Fu Center. At the beginning, it was tough for the kids to learn the kung fu forms and the training was vigorous. However, after just 3 months, we were able to see an adjustment in our kids’ performance in kung fu.
They started to enjoy being in the kung fu class and in practicing at home. We also noticed that their health in general have improved and they have built up a remarkable stamina.
Master Lan is a dedicated kung fu teacher. He proved himself to be an experienced kung fu teacher by introducing various techniques to improve the skills of his students. He always challenges his student to excel in their kung fu skills.
We are very pleased to find this gem in our neighborhood. We truly think that learning and practicing kung fu is vital in today’s society.

At first, I want my son to learn martial art is because I consent about his health. My son is allergic to egg, nuts, wheat and seafood. So he can’t eat any food that contain those allergens. I always worry about if he doesn’t get enough nutrition. Now my son has been learning Kung fu in New York Shaolin temple for six months. He is really into Kung fu, and he loves his Shifu. He couldn’t stop talking about his Shifu at home. And he keeps practicing what he learned, even when we walking on the street. Most of all, I can see obviously change to my son emotionally and physically. He is more confident. He becomes so focused on learning. And he eats much more than before and he gains fit. I am glad that I made the right decision.

I am Very impressive that my Jeremy changed a lot since he started lesson with ShiFu for only couple month. Now he improved in balancing, and he fellow ShiFu’s instruction, even answers questions, most importantly, Jeremy likes ShiFu, because KungFu Class is the only class he wants to go now. (I registed many other classes for him, but he just gives up after a few tries). I am really appreciated ShiFu’s hardworking.
My Melody is very shy and introvert. She never speaks up even when she got hurt by classmate. Since she learned Kungfu. She became more confident. And she stared participating in class. Plus she improves her fitness, she run much faster than other kids with same age. I am glad to have KungFu class for my kids. And sincerely thanks ShiFu Again.
