THE TEMPLE, EST. 2009
The Temple was established in November 2009 by Da Ge (MJ) & Da Jie (CC).
Da Ge moved back to the UK after living in China deep in the Song Shan Mountains at the Shaolin Temple for more than 4 years. Da Ge is the only non-Chinese Shaolin Disciple of the Shaolin Temple to perform in the famous Shaolin ‘Wheel of Life’ show worldwide.
In January 2009 Da Ge & Da Jie set up their first Shaolin classes in the local leisure centre where they found some of their first students, trained 3 times for 9 hours a week. In the summer of 2009 the dedicated students began to train with Da Ge outside of class at local parks and gyms around the UK. This meant the new found Shaolin Team were training more than 20 hours a week and their fitness and mental levels were growing rapidly.
DA GE & HIS TEAM BUILT THE TEMPLE FROM A OLD DERELICT BUILDING
That same year the Shaolin Warriors UK were born and, as the first UK based Shaolin group, were putting on regular displays across Hertfordshire. Their Shaolin shows were something most people had never seen and the Shaolin Warriors amazed thousands of people in a matter of months. Raising money Da Ge and his team built the Temple from a old derelict building which is now home to more than 200 Martial Art Athletes. With the team becoming more in demand they applied to audition on Britain's Got Talent 2010. Since then, they have been in high demand for all manner of events, and TV appearances, including their own series on SKY one.
With a strong team of dedicated and talented students the Temple is now UK’s Number one Shaolin gym offering classes in all aspects of Martial art training; From Traditional Kung Fu to stand up fighting, Children to adult classes. Parkour to Callisthenics, Meditation to Brick breaking! We do it all!
