The whip consists on 9 separate sections, one end has a handle and the other a small metal dart.  


Our Academy is selective therefore students will be given 1 months worth of Free Kung Fu training initially to see if they are suited to the Shaolin Style. Within this month you will be tested on dedication, motivation and character and then formally asked to become a member if successful. We treat our students as one big family, joining sanshu uk is like inheriting 100 brothers and sisters all looking to help each other out to improve and develop our skill. There is no politics we welcome anybody from any, style or background and are always open to improve what we can offer our members. Amituofo Amituofo Amituofo!   


Kung Fu (gong fu) literally means 'Work and time'. It refers to ones expertise in any skill achieved through hard work and practise. 

At our academy there are no belts, progress is reviewed when the student is ready depending on how they progress in and out of class. This includes skill, character and dedication to training. The ultimate goal ... strengthening the body, spirit and mind.

Kung Fu can be put into every activity every single day of your life.  

Conditioning and sensory training is an essential part of Shaolin Kung Fu. 

Students will be tested not just on the external but the internal aspects of Kung Fu training.

After all, conditioning your external is extremely difficult if your not internally stable.

Students will be taught how to focus through barriers and overcome obstacles they once thought to be impossible.

What you think you become" Buddha
