About us

The story of Sungshan Shaolin Temple in Chine and the development of kung fu (Wushu), Chi Kung, Tai Chi Chuan  and other martial arts and health-improving practices started more than 1,5 thousand years ago… In 2010 The Centre started to implement the program of uniting the Masters of different martial arts. In 2007 the Abbot of The Sunshan Shaolin Temple Master Shi Youngxin stressed this aspect as the one of the first priority for his disciple Shi Yanwei (the chairman on board of The Center Vyacheslav M. Rogov) Different kinds of martial arts are studied in our Center but the main thing is the spiritual closeness which unites all the people in The Center. Our trainers practice healthy lifestyle, are very devoted to their work and pass all their skills and knowledge to the students of the Center. It's very easy to feel the warmness of their hearts - talking to them can be quite enough. And to understand how competent they are you need only to visit the first free lesson. As the Shaolin Temple is the cradle of all martial arts, our Center is the place where representatives for all kinds of martial arts are united. The Abbot of The Sunshan Shaolin Temple Master Shi Youngxin highly estimated that part of our work, which had already been done, and showed us new fields of our further mutual development.
