At Shaolin Wahnam, our mission is to spread health and happiness to the world through the practice of the precious Shaolin arts. We protect an unprecedented treasure of practical training methods and strive to preserve the ancient secrets of past masters and their benefits for posterity.
Genuine Shaolin training is more than just a workout program. We want you to get all the benefits of high-level Qi Gong and traditional martial arts, including combat efficiency.
You can train in a non-time consuming manner to improve your everyday life and transform yourself into the best person you can be. Because when all people find health, joy and happiness, this world will become a better place.
While we cherish the history of the ancient Shaolin temples, we have no affiliation with the modern Shaolin monks or cultural centers.
Different to the popular show monks, our lineage can be traced back to the Southern Shaolin tradition. The genuine Shaolin arts we practice and teach have been preserved outside of China, during times of the cultural revolution and the later re-establishment of modernized Wushu by the Chinese government.
So, what you get here, has been passed down directly from the genuine past masters.
You won’t get any show training here but the real deal.
The Shaolin Wahnam Institute was founded by Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit in Malaysia, where his parents emigrated to from China.
Having learned from the four best masters he could find, he was always regarded a good student, fast-learner and a Kung Fu genius. He earned the title “Qi Gong Master of the Year” at the second Qi Gong World Congress in San Francisco in 1997.
His methodology was enhanced further through studying classics on Qi Gong, Kung Fu and Zen and by teaching thousands of classes on his worldwide travels.
Grandmaster Wong is the author of several bestselling books and was an internet pioneer by starting one of the first websites on Kung Fu in the 1990s. Today, his website www.shaolin.org is surely the biggest resource of articles, videos and Q&As on genuine Shaolin practice in the world.
With his never-ending generosity he’s been teaching principles and secrets that many people regard as lost or as a myth today.
Even after exceeding 70 years of age, he never ceases to inspire with his radiant energy and vitality.
If you get a chance to attend his Intensive Courses on Qi Gong, Shaolin Kung Fu or Wahnam Tai Chi Chuan in Malaysia, take the chance! Really! Go for it! future course details will be on Grandmaster Wong’s website www.Shaolin.org
At Shaolin Wahnam we practice Southern Shaolin Kung Fu as it was taught at the Southern Shaolin temple until its destruction in the 19thcentury.
Some people mistake our Kung Fu with the popular Southern style Hoong Ka (Hung Gar, Hung Kyun). While this is a wonderful style, made famous by the legendary folk hero Wong Fei Hung, and the sets and techniques are also contained in our training, Hoong Ka is a sub-style of Southern Shaolin and we practice its mother style which is simply “Southern Shaolin Kung Fu” or “Shaolinquan” as taught at the Southern Shaolin temple.
While Northern Shaolin Kung Fu built the foundation of Shaolin’s prestigious history, we regard Southern Shaolin Kung Fu as its advancement, as it contains even more depth and variety of techniques, sets and methods to train internal force.
