Buddha Kung Fu Launched 2008
Visit BuddhaKungFu.com for current information.
Buddha Zhen created Shaolin Chi Mantis in 1992, although he'd been teaching, mostly for free, since 1984.
Buddha Kung Fu was created in 2008 because very few Americans are ambitious enough to be Shaolin Warriors.
I love being a Shaolin Warrior. I hope my new book, BUDDHA KUNG FU STUDENT MANUAL, will promote the concept and inspire more people to be Shaolin.
I hope this book is good reading for people without an interest in studying Shaolin Kung Fu...yet inspiring and informative for them also.
This book is intended to build lots of Buddhas who benefit the world with their benevolence and balanced beauty.

Zen Buddhist Podcast of Shaolin Zen
I took time off. I stopped recording all the podcasts for the last quarter of 2009.
I was working on the American Zen album, LEVEL 4 = KUNG FU COWBOY. It's almost finished.
I will get back to the Buddhism Basics...soon.
Kung Fu Bootcamp of Buddha Kung Fu
In 2009 Buddha Kung Fu, in association with Shaolin Chi Mantis, created and launched the 12 Step 12 Week Bootcamp.
Utilizing the 12 Step Tantui of the Chinese Jing Mo Association, a one-day per week Kung Fu program was developed for Americans who don't have time to be Shaolin.
Each week a successive Tantui of the 12 Tantui is taught. By practicing these simple short, but very effective Kung Fu Forms, any American can lose weight and be in better shape.
Now, it's really up to you. Do you want to be healthy? Do you want to be fit? Do you want to be in good shape?
This is the simplest, shortest, most efficient way to learn Kung Fu that Buddha Zhen has developed since founding the Shaolin Chi Mantis Traditional Buddhist Gongfu and Taijiquan schools in 1992.
You have no excuses. One hour, once per week, and you are on the path of Shaolin Kung Fu.
The 12 Tantui are what made Bruce Lee such an amazing martial artists. "Tantui" translates to, "Spring Legs." Each student learns to punch and kick and block with their entire body. This was the foundation of Bruce Lee's "One-inch punch," he became famous for in the Long Beach International tournament. He was using his Tantui principles.
