Welcome to the UCL Shaolin Kung Fu Society!

Come along to our free classes to study traditional Shaolin Kung Fu!

We are open to beginners as well as more experienced martial artists and stand as UCL's most popular martial art club


Instructors and Affiliation

Our teacher Markus Tamoev has over 15 years of Martial Art Experience. His training started in 2005 with Cho lei fut Kungfu style.  He joined the Shaolin Temple UK in 2007 and become a teacher in 2011. He was trained under 34th Generation Shaolin Monks Shifu Shi Yanzi and Shifu Shi YanLei.  Currently, Markus is the owner and main teacher at Heart of Warrior School.  He is well known for his dedication and hard work which is shown through his skills and discipline.  He competes regularly in Sanshou, K1 and Thai Boxing competitions.

We will also be having guest teachers throughout the year training at different temples around London. Guest sessions will include Women's only classes and Tiger Crane classes. Dates and instructors details for the sessions will be confirmed throughout the year.

Kung Fu strengthens the mind as well as the body and we work together as a team to ensure that each member progresses.
