DEFENSE | HEALTH |
ATMOSPHERE | COMMUNITY | TRADITION
Shaolin-Do passes on ancient
self-defense techniques that were developed at a time when survival
required that every move be the ultimate in simplicity and efficiency.
You'll learn to evade or break free from an attack, incapacitate
your attacker and escape quickly and safely. This is important knowledge
to have, but realistically, how many fights are you getting in these
days? There is an even better reason to study Shaolin-Do than just
personal safety. A reason that lasts a lifetime. READ ON!
Martial arts training leads to increased endurance, strength, flexibility,
cardio-fitness and mental serenity. However, the reason New Orleans
students stay with Shaolin-Do is because they LOVE Shaolin-Do. The
only fitness you'll ever stick with is the one you have a passion
What you'll find at New Orleans Shaolin-Do are very skilled and
humble teachers working with students as equals. It's this open
and respectful atmosphere that gives our students the chance to
develop and carry a vast inner strength into every hour of their
Shaolin-Do students support and inspire each other to reach personal
goals. Perseverance and effort is rewarded with rank and respect
from their community and peers. You will enjoy new levels of personal
power and self-esteem. No matter your gender, skill, age, fitness
level or goals; you will fit in at Shaolin-Do.
Shaolin-Do students get the chance to learn hundreds of traditional
Chinese Kung Fu and Tai Chi Empty Hand and Weapons forms. You might
be saying "what are traditional forms?", but I guarantee
that you will love learning these ancient pieces of human history,
and you will see the immediate fighting application of the movements.
Maybe this is the reason that 50% of our current students left another
martial art school to come join Shaolin-Do. (back
is a Peak Experience?
A peak experience is a mental or physical breakthrough bordering
on the mystical. This is the experience we try to reach and help
others get to in each and every class. Peak experiences are the
moments that shape our lives. Now we're getting really close to
the secret of Shaolin-Do's incredible popularity.
The pieces of the Shaolin-Do experience; Self-Defense, Supportive
Atmosphere, Close-knit Community, Health benefits and a near-mystical
class experience are incredible and life-changing. Taken in combination
they create an unbelievably powerful force of reinvention and motivation
in your life. In fact, they create a life-style that wraps around
you and infects every moment of your day with confidence, power
and excitement. One of the most famous Psychologists of the 20th
century agrees with us. (back to top)
Psychologist Abraham Maslow & Shaolin-Do
One of the 20th century's best known Psychologists, Abraham Maslow,
theorized that all humans desire self-growth and actualization.
His theory, called the hierarchy of needs, suggested that a person
first had to satisfy the baser needs before working on personal
growth, identity and higher purpose within society. These needs
are as follows (paraphrased).
- Hunger, Thirst, Procreation
- Safety & Security = Shaolin-Do
- Community, Belonging, Being Loved = Shaolin-Do
- Self-Esteem = Shaolin-Do
- Self-Actualizing (discovering your identity
and purpose in the world) = Shaolin-Do
make you a deal

help you with the rest. You start by learning self-defense, facing
