Testimonials:

" Why is the Shaolin Kung Fu Training Center special to me?  It’s simple; Shifu Hengxin and Shimu Arlene. Anyone deeply involved in Martial Arts knows that it's all about the teachers, and not just the form.   Many masters are skilled, but few truly embody the Buddhist spirit and philosophy around which these internal arts are based.  As soon as you walk into SKFTC, you know that is the case here. This is truly a community, one of love, compassion, humility, and positive attitude. Yes, the instruction is traditional and superb, all done by Shifu Hengxin and Shimu Arlene. The form is beautiful, challenging and rewarding.  Basics, basics basics — no shortcuts here.  Competition, ego?  Goodbye.  This is the embodiment of the monk in his or her discipline, without any religious context.   My greatest joy, is that now my son has joined me in absorbing the unbelievable spirit this place has to offer.  You'll be very surprised that you can still find training like this here in New York City. I know we are both better people because of our involvement in this community."- Marc Bassin 2017
