“Wugulun” is the name of a 19th century Shaolin monk who is believed to have been the last monk to fight his way out of Shaolin Temple against the 18 temple guardians. He left before the Temple was burned to the ground by a regional warlord in 1928. He taught his son, Wu Shanlin, who was later invited back to the reconstructed Temple to teach the monks the lost secrets of Shaolin Kung Fu. Wugulun’s teaching is ancient, placing less emphasis on pure physical development and instead emphasizing spiritual development incorporating breathing practice and internal energy exercises. Rather than force students into a certain mold or paradigm, Wugulun works with the unique characteristics of each individual and thereby allows students to experience a deep personal cultivation.
