What people are saying

Simply a cut above the rest. The instructors are friendly awesome and push you just hard enough that you go further each time and do better each time. They are also mindful of injuries/age etc and help you overcome those obsticals, making it friendly for all. Having done other martial arts before and doing a different style of kung fu now (because i moved away) I can comfortably say this is best place to learn martial arts, be it kung fu, wing chung, qi gong or tai chi.

— D3c0n, Cape Town

I mainly wanted to train the Shaolin system. The first day that I walked in the centre I saw Shirfu Jeff Lan meditating in his medicine room, and I experienced a connection with him immediately, even though I never spoke to him for the first couple of months. I decided without hesitation to follow him………… At the beginning it was very difficult to discard my “western” thinking and I became emotional; but I realized that I could only learn from Shirfu by having a beginner’s empty mind every day; only with that state of mind could I absorb those teachings and then with the same empty mind could I apply them through training.

— Jeronimo De Los Rios, Colombia

I have experienced and witnessed Shirfu’s healing abilities, both as a patient and as a student, following and learning under his guidance. Shirfu lives by what he teaches – his clarity of mind, sensitivity and ability to connect with patients come from his ongoing commitment and dedication to his training and Qi Gong. Despite his advanced level of skill, he has great humility and sees himself as continuously learning, both from his teachers and students………Learning under Shirfu is not just about learning a “skill” – to be a healer of others, you first have to learn to heal yourself, develop sensitivity and to cultivate Qi.

— Bridget Lloyd, Western Cape

Philosophy & Culture

In Traditional Chinese medicine and martial arts, Daoist philosophy aids profound experiential and intellectual learning. In Daoism, the goal is unity with nature, transcending societal constructs. “Dao” signifies the Way or Path, guiding Daoists to align with the flow of Nature. Central to this is “Wu Wei,” embracing non-doing or purposeful inaction for harmony with the larger natural process.
