Shaolin Kung Fu is a mixed martial art that has evolved over 1500 years of testing in battles, fights and self-defence.

The Shaolin Monks for 1500 years have learned and applied kung fu for self-defence and wellbeing. The Shaolin developed many of their own highly effective fighting techniques, and also learned and added systems from some of the most formidable warriors in China over the centuries.

Shifu Darrin Bird's Shaolin training lineage started as an external Disciple of Grandmaster Shifu Brett Russell (a Disciple of Shi DeFon). And now Shifu Darrin continues his training under Grandmaster Shi DeRu, a Disciple of the venerable Great Master Shi SuXi .

The Shaolin Kung Fu style of martial arts is known for its vast variety of powerful unarmed (empty hand) techniques including: blocks, strikes, kicks, joint locks, pressure points, grappling, and throws that flow together in their forms. 

The Shaolin are also known for the many weapon skills and systems from the humble bo-staff (wooden long stick), traditional straight swords, to lesser known weapons such as the Kwan dao, monk spade, chain whips and many more.
