The Middle Path

Shaolin Kung Fu Academy

Martial Arts for Girls, Boys, Teens, and Adults

Our school is first and foremost a community. Whenever I’ve been asked to describe what I love about our specific branch of martial arts, it’s the aspect of community that has always come to mind. Communities are support centers, safe havens, and even a place of learning. They say “It takes a village to raise a child”, but I’d take that a step further and add “and it takes a community to support a village.” The written definition of community is “a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common.'' The great thing about our modern age is that the restriction of location is eliminated by the means of technology (we even have our own online community that connects us over great distances!) That leaves the requirement of common characteristics. The characteristic that runs through each and every member of our community is simply this: an empathic heart. Simple in concept, but absolutely critical for the function of our community.


“We are Shaolin. We walk our path, a noble path. We belong to all and are restricted by none.” 


The “all” are the kind and gentle souls, the compassionate beings, the open-minded and the humble. Regardless of race, creed, religion, gender, identity, preference, age, color, or citizenship. We are looking for these individuals to join our community. To help and uplift humanity. To be blessed, and be a blessing.
