The program will indeed include not only external martial arts but internal arts like Tai Chi, Xing Yi, and Ba Gua. The main program will contain beginners’ traditional forms as well as advanced weapons such as Pu Dao, Guan Do and Iron Whip.

The Shaolin camp started as early as 1988 at Mobile University campus, then, moved to the University of South Alabama. The camp later experienced many locations such as Spring Hill College Campus, Shaolin Institute New Orleans Campus and Atlanta new campus in Georgia. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8ro86kER7M&feature=BFa&list=UUn5hBdli-Hk7lcFOUVTWfpw.

Shaolin Institute various camps traveled to many cities from Pensacola, Florida to New Orleans, Louisiana, from Daphne, Alabama to Washington D.C. and all the way to the Shaolin Temple of China.
Over thousands of kids and adults went through the training camps. For many years the Shaolin camps were with the US national Sanshou team camps working together in various locations where some of the best world champions were produced under Grandmaster Shi DeRu (Shawn X. Liu), the head coach of the US team.

Out of thousands of Children who have come and gone through the years, they all have a story to share of their hardships as well as sweet moments they have experienced at the camps.

Here is one of the stories about a Vietnamese-American young man with humble beginning who was struggling with his direction in martial arts and in life after he was disqualified from a few Tae Kwando events. He called Grandmaster DeRu, his future mentor many times for information on Kung Fu Sanshou fighting with which he believed that he could excel despite of his total ignorance of Kung Fu Sanshou/Sanda.

That was back in 1994 when Kung Fu Sanshou just took a first official leap in the US. It was that year when Cung Le won the first US Open Chinese Martial Arts Championship middle weight Kung Fu-Sanshou division along with David Sanders who won the light weight division grand champion. David was also from the institute.

From that day on Cung Le started training at the Shaolin Intensive Training Camp full time (on campus 24/7) under Shi DeRu (Shawn X. Liu) living with Grand Master DeRu, preparing for the world Wushu-Sanshou championship.

Since then Cung Le has fought numerous fights in Sanshou and MMA world, and won many international and world professional championships, having defeated two of the most well-known legendary UFC world champions, Frank Shamrock and Rich Franklin. He has become one of the most well-known and most resilient fighters in Sanshou and MMA world. He has become, according to the media, the fiercest legendary fighter from Asia today.

He is world class fighter who has been truly trained in Shaolin Kung Fu-Sanshou from Shi DeRu ( Shawn X. Liu) the Shaolin Grandmaster and God Father of Kung Fu Sanshou in the US. As Le expressed in the last interview before shooting the AMC TV martial arts drama series, “Into The Badlands”. “I came to the US Open and then moved to Alabama trained in Sanshou from Coach Shawn Liu. All my Sanshou started from Shawn (DeRu) then and the rest is history.”

6 years later after Cung Le’s entrance in to Shaolin Intensive Training Camp, two young boys came with their father who practiced Kung Fu all his life. The boys turned out to stay with Shaolin Institute camps for the next 15 years. Both of them are part of the Shaolin Institute SWAT/Shaolin ambassadors’ performance team members and both of them have won a few national and international tournaments and are some of the best amateur fighters in the US. Both of them became police men and both of them were selected to perform and teach on the TV series, “ Into Badlands”. This is what they have to say on Father's day 2015:

" ...Remember to take breaks and eat haho. Have a wonderful day, sir. Happy Father's Day, Shifu! Your teachings saved me and my brother from very a very negative and dangerous environment and helped mold us into the men we are."

Twenty years later, after Cung Le, a youth, named Dwight, who was struggling with obesity and diabetes, also came to the Shaolin Intensive Training Camp at Shaolin Institute Atlanta campus.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zLFVNReLlA&list=UUn5hBdli-Hk7lcFOUVTWfpw&index=7&feature=plcp

Dwight came from Texas to the Shaolin summer training camp with his two cousins, from Texas Andrew and Oliver who had been enrolled previously at the Shaolin summer camp. They had enjoyed the eastern way of disciplined training along with many other benefits such as weight loss and Kung Fu self-protection skills. This is what Dwight wrote:

"I am finished with the Shaolin Warrior Summer Training Camp. It has been an enlightening experience that I will carry on past here. In six weeks I've lost 48 pounds and dropped 11% of my body fat. On top of that, I have brought my blood pressure down from 230/160 to 120/60! "

"I've also sharpened many skills such as my flexibility, endurance, concentration, will-power, strength, and discipline among many, many others. Under the training of such qualified and experienced people, I feel I have been given a unique experience to boost my learning while being immersed in the meanings."

"I've taken every class and they are all masterfully designed to fit any person. All in all, I have been taught a new lifestyle that I will carry on with me for the rest of my life.” -- Dwight Brisbin

It is indeed many students and even patients came to the camps from various parts of the US and around world, from Korea to Germany from France to Brazil. They all came for one reason. That is to gain self-discipline ability and to better their lives in higher consciousness.
