Welcome to Hu Long Temple – School of Shaolin Kung Fu and Qi Gong. We are a Chinese Martial Arts and Wellbeing School based in the town of Totnes, Devon, specialising in traditional authentic Shaolin Long Fist Kung Fu, Sanda (Full Contact Free Fighting), Taiji, Qi Gong and Meditation. We are also highly trained in working with children and adults with life-limiting illnesses, learning disabilities, mental health difficulties and complex needs, as well as victims of crime. Our school is one of the longest running Shaolin Long Fist schools in the South West of England and was founded by 35th Generation Shaolin Warrior Disciple, Shi Heng Liang (Matt Bindon), dedicated to promote healthy wellbeing and Shaolin culture by running classes, workshops, productions and retreats within communities. Classes are open to all ages and abilities so everybody gets to train together. We also run specific one to one or concentrated groups tailored to the needs of participants. Currently, we hold classes in Totnes and the surrounding areas of Devon, as well as outreach work throughout the UK.
