Time for an honest review that's not a paid advertisement: Shi Yan Ming teaches a cardio Wushu performance gymnastics class. He Is NOT a Shaolin/Buddhist Monk and never was. His student teachers teach 99% of the time so its not even him

I was walking off a hangover and a friend saw the sign for the USA Shaolin Temple and in we went. I felt the building shaking and thought it was the 6 train; when we entered, I realized it was students performing jumps! If you are serious about spiritual growth and truly mastering yourself, this is the place. I commuted 2 hours/day for 2+ years before moving to Manhattan to be closer to the Temple. I have trained and taught at numerous places and dreamt of a monastery amongst mist shrouded mountains in a far-away land, but found my home right here. This is the place where I viscerally realized the unity of mind-body. If your frame of mind is right, you can do things you thought were impossible (I had never done a cartwheel before I came here). Highly recommend trying a class and judging for yourself. As a previous reviewer mentioned - class time is serious, after class the mood is festive. Amituofo.

Pros: Teacher who teaches by doing, motivated (and encouraging) students, train as frequently as you want

Cons: be prepared to push yourself, you will be constantly hungry

Sifu Shi Yan Ming is one of the most of the most charismatic people you'll ever meet. But what makes this school especially attractive are the people. There is a real sense of community here. People demonstrate the utmost respect, support and encouragement for each other, and are very welcoming. I never fancied myself to be any kind of regular athlete or gym rat, but since I started 2-1/2 months ago, I cannot get enough of the USA Shaolin Temple. I have never worked so hard for anything before, and I find the master and the fellow students inspiring. And the value is awesome -- I feel it is like a gym membership and therapy rolled into one!

Cons: None

Very intense! If you're serious about learning authentic Shaolin Kung Fu, this is the place. Level 1 classes are personally taught by Abbot and 34th Generation Shaolin monk Shi Yan Ming. Classes are only crowded on Tuesday and Thursday nights, mornings and weekends are less crowded. Existing students are not allowed to talk to anyone during class so it may seem that they are unwelcoming but I found that everyone that I spoke with after class was very friendly and informative. Highly Recommended!!!

Pros: Authentic Shaolin , Inexpensive, convenient

This place is crowded, too hot, and the service was poor. The existing students there definitely didn't make others feel welcome.
