Kung Fu Classes for Children, Teens, and Adults

The Shaolin Temple of China is a religious institution steeped in history. The story of how the Michigan Shaolin Wugong Temple came to be is one that began 1,500 years ago. Long before students of all ages today began learning the methods and practices of Kung Fu, an Indian Buddhist missionary by the name of Bodhidharma ignited the yearning for spiritual enlightenment and physical fitness that became the bedrock on which modern day Shaolin Kung Fu is built.

Around the 5th century Western AD, Bodhidharma journeyed from India to China, bringing Dhyāna Buddhism with him. During the years following Bodhidharma’s time, his teachings were subsequently named Ch’an Buddhism (Zen in Japan, Seon in Korea, and Thiền in Vietnam). Bodhidharma was invited to teach at the first Shaolin Temple, which was built in 495 AD on the northern face of Shaoshi, the central summit of Mount Song, one of the Sacred Mountains of China. Bodhidharma became the spiritual leader of the first Shaolin Temple. He taught the Shaolin monks and nuns martial arts, self-energization techniques, and most importantly meditation for the purpose of cultivating spiritual awareness. By strengthening one’s body and increasing one’s stamina through the practice of martial techniques, it was possible to meditate for longer durations and thereby hone one’s spirituality. About 100 years after Bodhidharma’s arrival, Chinese Shaolin monks and nuns began to develop their own martial arts styles, which proliferated throughout China. The monks and nuns of the Shaolin Temple went on to influence modern martial arts styles in Japan, Okinawa, and Korea as well.

Brief History of Michigan Shaolin Wugong Temple

The Michigan Shaolin Wugong Temple was established to provide martial arts instruction to people in Madison Heights and Detroit seeking to learn authentic Shaolin Kung Fu. The Michigan Shaolin Wugong Temple was inspired by Sifu Thomas Smith, who founded the Shaolin Temple in Westland, Michigan.

In the 1970s, Sifu Thomas Smith journeyed to Japan. There he took instruction from Onishi Eizo, a Japanese grandmaster versed in the Shaolin tradition. When his training was completed, Sifu Thomas Smith moved back to Westland, Michigan, where he has practiced and taught Chinese Shaolin martial arts since.
