Resumes of Buddha Zhen   

Buddha Kung Fu was founded by Buddha Zhen Shen-Lang in January 1, 2008 with the publication of the book, Buddha Kung Fu Student Manual. This book contains all the exercises and requirements for the 10 belt rank levels of Buddha Kung Fu.

You start with a white sash. Obtain your Chinese Kung Fu uniform, any color, and join us in tennis shoes, never bare foot. Buddha Kung Fu is taught in 4-month semesters, so it is possible to get three belt rank advancements each year.

Buddha Zhen kicking his discipleNo sparring allowed in Buddha Kung Fu. We teach every dirty trick invented by the Shaolin Monks and never teach our students sparring rules. We do Push Hands Competitions and choreographed Kung Fu routines... but never free sparring in class or tournaments. This enables girls to excel in our classes and boys to avoid bone breaks. Kung Fu is a way of life--and hurting people and being hurt is not the Kung Fu path... despite what you see in the movies.

Join us to live an active, healthy, energetic lifestyle of peace and tranquility while you learn how to kick ass. (We do a lot of kicking!)

Chinese Yoga™ in the Park

Buddha Zhen has created a one-year, three semester, three level yoga curriculum for women. This fast-paced yoga has a half-dozen positions in common with most yoga styles. The additional dozens of stretches are for ensuring a complete body purification as stress is completely removed.

The SCM Yoga™ routine also includes a one-year qigong program that leads the student through their entire body for optimal health and mind-body balance.

Since it requires one entire year to master this Chinese Yoga™ routine, the Chinese Yoga™ certificate program can only be started after this one-year completion. The Chinese Yoga™ instructor program requires an additional year of training.
