CONGRATULATIONS TO SI-GUNG FRANK VERSAGI FOR BEING INDUCTED INTO THE
2013 USA MARTIAL ARTS HALL OF FAME !!!
The Shao-lin Center for Martial Arts was opened in March of 1996, after Si-Gung Frank Versagi returned from his first of three trips to the Shao-lin Temple in China. The School is located in North Olmsted, Ohio, a western suburb of Cleveland, Ohio; situated on Brookpark Road Extension, across from Great Northern Mall.
The Shao-lin Center offers classes in meditation, Qi-Gong, Tai Chi Chuan, Shao-lin Kung-fu, Northern Style, for adults and children, and women self- defense seminars.
The School focuses on the mental as well as the physical development of the students. The meditation and Tai Chi classes are geared toward allowing the students to relax, calm their busy minds down, and to slowly get into mind/body shape.
Our kung-fu classes for adults and children teach a practical, realistic approach to the martial arts, techniques that will help should they find themselves involved in a fight; not techniques that would require gymnastic skills. We emphasize to our students that fighting is the last option of any situation; however, if you find yourself in some type of battle, you may as well be an extremely competent fighter so you come out ahead.
We make the distinction at our school between the Traditional Northern Style Shao-lin kung-fu, which is what the student will learn at our school; and the wu-shu style of kung-fu that is out there nowadays. We believe the mind and the body should be together at the same moment during training to help the students achieve a "complete" training regime.
THERE IS NO TOMORROW...TRAIN HARD TODAY
