Shaolin Spirit at the Chinatown Festival on August 28, 2019

Our downtown school’s performance at the Chinatown Festival a few weeks ago was all about Shaolin Spirit.

What is Shaolin Spirit? It is about learning to drop the ego, to work together, to be respectful, and to focus on doing your best in order to get stronger physically and mentally.

Each year we strive to get better and better. Some people may think that getting better means your movements becomes sharper and more powerful. What if Shaolin is more than that?

Indeed, this year we challenged people’s perceptions of what Shaolin is by showcasing a variety of soft and internal arts including qigong, Gentle Shaolin kung fu, and meditation. 

We wanted to show people the uniqueness of the Shaolin culture and arts. It can be enjoyed by anyone and it doesn’t matter what age you start at.

The Shaolin Spirit of our community continues to embody the principal Shaolin Virtues of Perseverance, Strive, Focus, Respect, Compassion, and Leadership. We hope you enjoy these short videos of our various performances and become inspired to train for self improvement and health.
