With 4000 years of fighting wisdom, Shaolin Kung Fu Centre’s tiger style is a complete self-defense system that promotes traditional values and encourages a healthy lifestyle
We offer a safe and rigorous kids program that encourages all children to surpass themselves and be the best they can, while having fun at the same time. Our family-style environment teaches not only martial arts but respect for self and others. The Shaolin Centre is also the only school in the Ottawa area that offers traditional lion dancing, to further augment the traditional training.
Foundation training requires hard work and dedication. Great martial artists continuously drill in the basics so all their movements have maximum power and fluidity. Disciples in the old days first began by learning the basic horse stance (Say-Ping Ma) for a period of three months. This builds good leg muscle strength, similar to the strong roots of a tree, making it very difficult to be pushed over.
