“Master Warren’s Shaolin school is a training facility for both the body and mind. When you walk through the door, you are always greeted with a smile. At that point the world behind you disappears as you enter into the focus of Shaolin. Master Warren’s teaching style is warm and inviting, yet demands focus, patience, and clarity. From your very first class, you are taught the importance of relaxation and freeing the mind from thoughts of everyday life. The hustle of the outside world melts away as your focus settles into the mindful awareness of Shaolin Kung Fu practices.
Through practice, this class facilitates a deeper understanding of motion and physics as it applies to body movement. Your body’s standard linear movements will evolve into a more circular range of motion that embodies the Shaolin principles of energy conservation and precise direction of power. You will gain a deeper understanding of how your body interacts with the space around you, and you will develop a broader self-awareness of your body’s movement and position. By training you in Shaolin short forms, self-defense, and sparring, Master Warren unlocks and enhances your body’s potential to defend itself and find inner peace and clarity.
The class itself is an open learning environment, as Master Warren is cultivating the practices of a true Shaolin school in which students train, learn, and grow together in a positive environment. There are a lot of laughs (and hugs) in this school. I always leave class in a far better mood than when I arrived. More often than not, Master Warren’s class is the most fulfilling part of my day. All aspects of my life have been positively affected by Shaolin.” – Justin
