Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

In line with Public Heath England guidance, to support the need for social distancing, we have ceased all of our activities until May the 1st.



Welcome to Manchester South Central's school of Shaolin kung fu.  We are a prestigious martial arts institution that operates under the watchful eye of Sifu Shahrokh Na'el – an extraordinarily passionate instructor who has devoted over forty years to the exploration of the classical Asian fighting arts.



Sifu has now been training like-minded enthusiasts for many years, and throughout the course of his tenure as a teacher he has had the pleasure of imparting these skills to students of all ages and cultural backgrounds.  He emphasises quality over quantity and strives to transmit the depth of his knowledge to those practitioners who display the commitment to fully appreciate these profound teachings.


Sifu only teaches to a selected number of students at Studio 3, Heaton Mersey,  which is perfectly positioned between Didsbury and Stockport. His teachings are on every Monday and Friday, from 7.30pm to 9pm. He also teaches privatley at Manchester Metropolitan University's sports facilities.
