Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Kung Fu?

Kung Fu, the art of Gong Fu, is considered one of the world’s most ancient and sophisticated martial arts. Originating in China, it has a rich historical background that spans several centuries, and its story echoes the culture and philosophy surrounding it. The term Kung Fu is derived from two Chinese characters that, when combined, mean ‘hard work.’ The phrase refers to the commitment and resolve required to master the techniques and forms of the art. Kung Fu is renowned for emphasizing physical and mental strength, endurance, and discipline and being rooted in Taoist and Buddhist principles. Martial artists who practice Kung Fu utilize a vast range of techniques, including striking, kicking, joint-locking, and grappling, while also engaging in practices such as meditation, breathing techniques, and mindfulness exercises. Today, Kung Fu maintains its popularity globally, with its principles and techniques incorporated into other martial arts practices and fitness programs.

What Style Or Type Of Art Is Best?

Shaolin Arts has always provided a complete program because that’s what works. Kicks, punches, stances, defense, grappling, chin na, offense, chi, healing, philosophy, health, sport, street, weapons, etc. Some individuals come in for just one piece or style of the Arts, which is fine, but we like to teach the entire program when possible. It’s fun, it’s real, and it works. Let us know, and we will set up the best program for your interests and needs.

How Safe Is It?

Shaolin Arts studios pride themselves on their excellent safety record. Far more injuries occur in so-called non-contact sports, such as basketball. You do not have to be hurt, nor hurt another, to learn good martial arts, self-defense, kung fu, or Tai Chi. The Arts were designed to make you healthier and more robust, not weaker.

I’d give 10 stars, if it were possible. My family and I have been going here twice a week for nearly two years. Sifu Johnson is amazing! She’s knowledgeable, engaging, and kind. The studio is impeccably clean. Highly recommend!

Studying Kung Fu at Shaolin Arts has been a life changing experience for me. As a business owner and a dad with a busy schedule I wasn't taking the time to focus on myself both mentally and physically. Sifu Johnson and the other students at the Sandy Studio have challenged me over the last year and a half to push myself, and strive for a higher level of balance and harmony. If you are looking for a challenge, and to improve yourself mentally and physically this is the place to go. I can't recommend it enough.

I've been studying Kung fu here for over 10 years. The instructors are fantastic and keep classes fun and motivating. They are very knowledgeable and are able to help each person in the way they need. There is a fun energy to classes and it’s a good group of people who come. There is always something new to learn. A few years ago I started doing Tai Chi too. It’s helped me to be less stressed and more focused. It’s helped reduce the migraines that I get. The instructor’s work with you where you are and still motivate you to get better. I highly recommend to anyone interested in learning martial arts.
