Let’s Start Your Adventure

This is our third annual summer camp hosted by the UK Shaolin Temple in Southampton, UK. We had a fantastic time during the previous two years, with many children, families and individuals coming together to enjoy authentic Shaolin training.

This year we are expanding our summer camp to offer you more activities, more fun and excitement. This year we will be offering more of traditional Shaolin Kung Fu training, with forms and weapons skills. On top of that other training activities will feature including San DaMeditationQi GongTai Chi. All camp attendees receive a free UKST T-Shirt.

Shifu Shi Yanming, a 34th Generation Shaolin Warrior Monk from the Shaolin Temple, and his disciple Shifu Chen Miaoshan (Martine Niven) will head all training. These teachers have over 50 years combined Chinese martial arts experience.

You will get a taste of training every day, five days a week, just as they do in the Shaolin Temple in China. For those of you who are considering Shaolin training in China, this event is a great taster experience. Equally, it is a great opportunity for anyone who would like to have a go at more in-depth Shaolin training and other Chinese culture activities.

Alongside training, we will deliver a host of Chinese cultural activities to immerse yourself in the culture and learn some new skills and hobbies. The activities include Chinese tea ceremony, Chinese calligraphy, Chinese language sessions, and learning to make homemade Chinese dumplings. There will be some outside training in nearby natural areas within Southampton.

The event is suitable for anyone: adults, children, and families. Our training is challenging but empowering and gets you thinking differently about your abilities, and enables you to feel more confident in your body. We are also accommodating to any existing physical impairments and injuries. Please contact us directly if you have any specific queries about the training.

Our summer camp package includes the camp activities, training and equipment fees as well as the celebration meal on the final day.

We are happy to advise you on accommodation and book full board accommodation with our partner Solent University. Please contact us with your requirements separately, so we can give you the additional costs.
