About this pro

Master Mike is a 5th degree Black Belt in Shaolin-Do Kung Fu (the rank of Associate Master), and a 3rd degree Black Sash in Tai Chi.
Shaolin-Do is a comprehensive martial art based on the ancient teaching of the Shaolin Temple system from China.
We teach Tai Chi to increase your balance, posture, flow, energy, and sensitivity to the world around you.
We teach Kung Fu for strength, conditioning, fitness, power, gymnastic ability, self-defense, and confidence building.
Combined, both systems work to develop your inner and outer strength so that you can work on becoming the amazing person you are destined to be.

Here is the beginning of a journey of personal discovery and growth. Through hard work and dedication, you can learn the ancient methods of the fabled Shaolin warriors. Use them for self-defense, mental development, or just to get in shape with friends!


The Shaolin system of Kung Fu and Tai Chi comes from thousands of years of tradition and training. The Way of Shaolin is a program of self renewal; refreshing the mind, body, and spirit to grow in a positive direction through thought, exercise, and meditation.
