What makes Shaolin-Do different from other martial arts available in Pensacola?

Shaolin-Do Kung Fu is a traditional martial art which started its long history of development during the sixth century AD. In the Northern China province of Honan, Ch’an Buddhist monks began practicing kung fu as a way of self-defense and of disciplining both mind and body. (more details)

While the fighting skills of the Shaolin monks were legendary, their underlying philosophy was always focused on the avoidance of conflict by approaching potentially dangerous situations from a position of discipline, strength, and skill. Combat techniques and knowledge honed over centuries of practice and application have resulted in a martial arts system that is unparalleled for both its effectiveness in combat and as a way of mental and physical development.
