Shaolin Zen Podcasting

What is a healthy exercise that is fun to do for 50 years?  
Answer:  Shaolin Kung Fu.

It's hard to keep fit when you're locked indoors.  In order to be healthy in old age you need to be healthy in whatever age you are now.  

You can lose weight and master your mind learning traditional Shaolin Kung Fu.

You can learn self-defense without being thrown in a boxing ring with gloves on.  Buddha Zhen has been teaching Shaolin Kung Fu and Combat Tai Chi Chuan since 1984 without a single bone break or dislocation in his students.  Buddha Zhen "Jen" is still teaching classes at age 67 from his Shaolin Chi Mantis ONLINE KWOON in Lancaster, California.

Want the real original Zen Buddhism of the Shaolin Temple?  It doesn't include chanting, or praying to any Gods, but it does include psychology and self-awareness which require a Shifu.

Join Buddha Zhen as he teaches:

  • Traditional Shaolin Kung Fu
  • Yang Tai Chi Chuan
  • Qigong
  • Shaolin Yoga

Now you can learn Kung Fu and Tai Chi locked up with a computer.

The Original Zen Buddhism was created by Bodhidharma at the Shaolin Temple.  Bodhidharma created the Original Shaolin Kung Fu.  The Japanese replaced the exercise and weapons with sitting around "seeking nothing."  Zen Buddhism has to include Shaolin Kung Fu or it's just a bunch of pondering.

Podcast 7
of the Zen Buddhist Podcast
hosted by Buddha Zhen
of the Cybertemple.

Buddha Zhen Shen-Lang,
founder of the CyberTemple
leads Sangha Buddhist Zen lessons to be aired and brodcast over the internet discussing Chinese Chan Buddhism from the Shaolin Zen CyberTemple.

Buddha Zhen reads from the Shaolin Zen CyberTemple website, the "SEMINARS" webpage. During his explanations of the various seminars he teaches each year, Buddha Zhen criticizes other martial arts styles and claims that Karate is perpetuating many mistakes that don't exist in Kung Fu and Tai Chi.

Buddha Zhen also explains why he is no longer a master spearmaker and swordsmith. Since the 911 tragedy, postal rates have skyrocketed to the point that the postage to send a spear in the mail is more than the cost of the spear. He apologizes to his many loyal customers who have relied on him to create custom swords, spears, and Chinese classical weapons. The online weapon weapon catalog of Shaolin Chi Mantis at is primarily for his students, whom he can deliver his custom made weapons to at his classes and seminars.

Buddha Zhen discusses his various seminars with comments about this years' events and where to find the super discount prices he offers his students at

  • Push Hands Seminars
  • Push Hands Tournaments
  • Tai Chi Staff Seminars
  • Tai Chi Qigong Seminars
  • Tai Chi Tournament Seminars
  • Combat Taiji Seminars

are all briefly exlained with a plea to his online audience to help him create "...interactive seminars..." that will be live with questions and comments being provided by his internet audience. Buddha Zhen teases the audience with a few hints of his "3D Buddhist CyberTemple" that is being developed.

The podcast ends with an 8-track demo recording by American Zen, "Kung Fu Cowboy," featuring Coyote making the "clip-clops" of horses with his tongue.

"I can improve your Tai Chi skills, no matter what level you are!"

Promising to not interfere with your current Masters' Tai Chi Form, Zhen Shen-Lang states he can still find something to improve and show you something you wouldn't have discovered otherwise.
