The ACADEMY OF
MARTIAL ARTS

There really was a Shaolin Temple and they really did practice Kung Fu there. The Academy of Martial Arts in Santa Cruz, California, is one of the only direct lineage schools in the Western world deriving from the Shaolin Temple itself. We are understandably proud of a tradition that spans over 1000 years. Our other roots go back to some of the top instructors of their styles. Many are rarely seen, even today, outside of China.
