Shaolin Zen Podcasting

What is a healthy exercise that is fun to do for 50 years?  
Answer:  Shaolin Kung Fu.

It's hard to keep fit when you're locked indoors.  In order to be healthy in old age you need to be healthy in whatever age you are now.  

You can lose weight and master your mind learning traditional Shaolin Kung Fu.

You can learn self-defense without being thrown in a boxing ring with gloves on.  Buddha Zhen has been teaching Shaolin Kung Fu and Combat Tai Chi Chuan since 1984 without a single bone break or dislocation in his students.  Buddha Zhen "Jen" is still teaching classes at age 67 from his Shaolin Chi Mantis ONLINE KWOON in Lancaster, California.

Want the real original Zen Buddhism of the Shaolin Temple?  It doesn't include chanting, or praying to any Gods, but it does include psychology and self-awareness which require a Shifu.

Join Buddha Zhen as he teaches:

  • Traditional Shaolin Kung Fu
  • Yang Tai Chi Chuan
  • Qigong
  • Shaolin Yoga

Now you can learn Kung Fu and Tai Chi locked up with a computer.

The Original Zen Buddhism was created by Bodhidharma at the Shaolin Temple.  Bodhidharma created the Original Shaolin Kung Fu.  The Japanese replaced the exercise and weapons with sitting around "seeking nothing."  Zen Buddhism has to include Shaolin Kung Fu or it's just a bunch of pondering.  

"The ultimate self-defense is self-awareness.™"
