  • Shaolin Winter Camp 2018

    Dear family & visitors,

    We’re proud to announce that Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit will be teaching the three Shaolin treasures of Chi Kung, Kungfu and Zen in Lapland, Finland early next year!

    The event will be held from January 22nd to 28th 2018.

    In the past we’ve had the honor of hosting some great courses here in the Nordic countries, but the selection of 2018 will definitely take the cake. Details regarding our courses are forthcoming, but here’s to whet your appetite:
    • There will be three courses altogether; one for Chi Kung, one for Kungfu, and one for Zen
    • All courses will be advanced courses - no beginners courses this time
    • None of these courses have been taught by Grandmaster Wong before

    Do you want to guess what courses we’ll be hosting? We’ve started a competition here with great prizes!

    The Shaolin Winter Camp 2018 event will be held in Inari, Lapland in beautiful, natural surroundings of wintertime Finland. The event venue is located close to the the Ivalo airport. For participants there will be a range of various lodgings available ranging from luxurious to very affordable. Group lodgings will also be available.

    Also, January is generally the best time in Lapland to witness the majestic northern lights!

    Look for upcoming announcements about the event. If you have any questions, please contact us directly:

    Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

    2018 Shaolin Winter Camp course selection

    Dear family and visitors,

    We are proud to announce the Shaolin Winter Camp courses to be held in Finland in 22.1. - 28.1.2018!

    In regards to our Winter Camp competition, you can check out the list of winners here.

    NOTE: These courses are not for fresh beginners. Before applying, you should be well versed in the fundamentals of chi kung and / or kungfu (depending on your choice of courses).

    January 22nd to 26th, 2018

    Throughout recent years, many in our school have expressed wishes for another Special Intensive Shaolin Kungfu course where one could specialize in a certain kungfu art or a set.

    For Winter Camp 2018, we asked Sifu would it be possible to have such a course here in Finland. However, Sifu has instead offered us something much, much better:

    At the Glory of Shaolin Kungfu -course, each participant will be transmitted the essence of all of the following arts:
    Shaolin Dragon Form
    Shaolin Flower Set
    Shaolin Monkey Form
    Shaolin Tiger Crane

    So, instead of specializing in one single art, participants will be able experience and put to practice the true depth of Shaolin Kungfu!

    Since this course will demand special preparation from all participants, it was necessary for us to announce it well beforehand - now everyone will have time to prepare well before attending. Details and instructions for preparation will be posted at the course discussion -section soon.

    Even with Shaolin Wahnam's very high standards, the Glory of Shaolin Kungfu -course will be a historic event. Make sure not to miss it!

    Practically in all genuine traditional energy arts, breathing is one of the most important and useful tools for managing energy. Thus, it comes as no surprise that Shaolin Chi Kung is exceedingly rich in different breathing methods. However, while arts like Abdominal Breathing and Cosmic Breathing are taught and practiced in our school, there is still a wealth of valuable and beneficial breathing methods that haven't yet been formally taught in Shaolin Wahnam.

    The aim for the Breathing Methods in Shaolin Chi Kung -course is to offer participants the skills and methods for utilizing and benefiting from various modes of breathing in chi kung, and to also pass these great arts to posterity. It will be an excellent choice for anyone wishing to deepen their skills and understanding in the art of chi kung, and to get the best benefits from their daily practice.

    In essence, Zen is meditation. Since at the Winter Camp 2018 we have the incredible opportunity to learn personally from a living Shaolin Zen master, what would make more sense than to focus directly into the most crucial part of Zen training, ie. the training of the mind?

    Meditation in Shaolin Zen -course will provide a comprehensive overview into genuine Shaolin Zen meditation practice as taught by the great past masters, an effective way for deepening the internal training in all of our Shaolin arts, as well as a fantastic conclusion the 2018 Shaolin Winter Camp!

    Prices and further information regarding the courses is forthcoming, but we are happy to accept preliminary applications starting now:

    And don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!

    Best wishes,

      The Glory of Shaolin Kungfu -course preparation

      Below are instructions for preparation for the Glory of Shaolin Kungfu -course held in Finland from January 22nd to 26th in 2018.

      NOTE: The course will not be merely a run-through of the kungfu sets linked below. Grandmaster Wong will teach the essence - form, force, method, application and spirit - of these arts. If the focus would be only on the form, there would not be time for much else.

      So, every course participant is expected to be familiarized with the sets before the course.


      The Shaolin Winger Camp will be held from 22nd to 28th January 2018 in Lapland, Finland. Those attending the course will have a good chance to see the fabulous Northern Lights.

      There are three Sections, namely Shaolin Kungfu, Shaolin Chi Kung and Zen. Those attending the Shaolin Kungfu Course, the Glory of Shaolin Kungfu, should familiarize themselves with the following sets. Those practicing Taijiquan can also attend, and the course will enrich their Taijiquan practice.

      Please note that familiarizing themselves with the set, which is a required condition, is only the preparation. At the course, participants will learn the depth and essence of Shaolin Kungfu.

      These five sets crystallize the depth and essence of Shaolin Kungfu, the greatest martial art of the world. Shaolin Dragon Form is from Northern Shaolin. The Dragon is particularly effective in training mind. Shaolin Flower Set captures the spirit of ShaolinKungfu, flowing and forceful.

      Shaolin Monkey Set is full of tricks. The Monkey was the specialty of my sifu, Grandmaster Ho Gatt Nam. The Shaolin 72-Pattern Tiger-Crane Set was from Ng Mui, the most combat efficient of the Shaolin Elders. Five-Elemental Fist represents the essence of Yue Fei, the Sage of Martial Art. The Glory of Shaolin Kungfu course will bring out the wonders of Shaolin Kungfu. It is also going to be fun!

      - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit
