Wall StretchThe Colorado Springs Chinese Shao-Lin Center
for Kung Fu and Tai Chi...

...was the first satellite school to branch out under the guidance of 8th Degree Elder Masters Sharon and David Soard of Denver, CO. We've been in Colorado Springs for over 25 years, and under new ownership as of October 2011, we are thrilled to grow and expand and continue to share the rare and unique martial art of Shao-Lin Kung Fu!


At our school for teens and adults (12 and up, with younger kids accepted on a case by case basis) you'll discover a fun and diverse group of people passionate about improving their lives in one way or another! As part of that diversity, you'll find men and women of all ages from the spry teenager to the wise senior working to achieve their goals and increase their skill level. Progress at your own pace with the support of your Head Instructor and other senior students.

With roots back 1500 years to the Honan temple in China, we are privileged to have the opportunity to learn the extensive, unique styles of Shao-Lin Kung Fu still today! As masters from the Shao-Lin temples entered other areas of the world, they brought with them this rich knowledge and training they would then continue to pass on to chosen few.

3 Grandmasters

Our direct history traces just three generations back to Great Great Grandmaster Su Kong T'ai Djin of the Fukien temple in Southern China where he passed the training on to Great Grandmaster Ie Chang Ming who later fled with many other to Indonesia for safety. There, he trained Grandmaster Sin Kwan The' who brought the Art to America in the '60s.

He taught our current 8th degree Elder Masters who support the continued training of Instructors at each school in our organization.
