Southern Shaolin
Five Animals

Kung Fu & Qi Gong
Lund, Sweden


We practice martial arts according to the family system of our Grand Master Tran Loi Minh, which is called 'South Shaolin Five Forms Combat'. This is a complete and traditional south Chinese martial arts system with roots in Shaolin and it encompasses Qi Gong, Kung Fu, Lion Dance, Sanshou and Tai Chi. Our goal is to develop our body and mind, and we strive for constant improvement and personal development.

Welcome to us and our way of life.

Start of Fall 2021

The semester starts with indoor training at Lerbäckshallen, "Lilla salen", Monday the 30:th of August for existing students and instructor alike. New students are accepted from 13:th of September.

Kung Fu

The Kung Fu system that we practise is called Five Forms, a traditional south Shaolin system. The Five Forms training includes hand techniques (animals, Lohan, drunken, etc), approximately 70 official weapons, chinna (a form of grappling), sanda (boxing), and traditional fighting. Qi Gong, Lion dance, Tai Chi and Sanshou complements the Kung Fu training as well as do strength, flexibility, hardening and mental training.

We practise Kung Fu to challenge and improve ourselves physically and mentally, and to have great fun in the process of doing so!



You must be at least 15 years of age to train with us but otherwise it does not matter if you are 15 or 55, the training is diverse enough to offer challenges and advantages for each age, gender, and physique. Beginners are accepted at the start of each new term. Please see schedule below. You are very welcome to come train with us a couple of times to try out how Five Forms suits you.

Youth Group

Unfortunately, we cannot offer a youth class this semester. It is unknown when, and if, the youth training will start again.

Qi Gong

sydshaolin@outlook.com


Our Qi Gong style is based on the Taoist principles, and our overreaching goal is to find balance and harmony - in our lives and with ourselves. To achieve this we strive to understand and learn more about ourselves, our body and our mind. The difference compared to Kung Fu is that we work from the inside out - our focus is on Inner Training.



Due to the Corona outbrake, we will not offer a Qi Gong class this semester.

Schedule & Location

This year we have moved to the newly built gym hall at lerbäcksskolan. It's actually so brand new so you still can only see a field of gravel on Google maps, but we can assure you that you cannot miss it!

We are using "lilla salen", which is the furthest from the entrence, and have been assigned the locker rooms closest to the entrence. Logical, huh? Should you arrive late, there is an intercom; buzz for "lilla salen".

Starting up again after pandemic shut-down, we have been forced to amalgate the classes this year into two times, only. Joint class for all students.

Starting dates fall of 2021

These are the dates to look forward to:

About Us

Our club

T.I.A Lund is one of many clubs that together form the Swedish branch of Tran Loi Minh International Qi Gong and Kung Fu Association. T.I.A teaches the traditional south Shaolin system Five Forms under the supervision of our grand master Dai Si Tran Loi Minh who lives in Paris.

Five Forms encompasses traditional Kung Fu, Qi Gong, Lion Dance and Tai Chi. TIA Sweden also teaches Sanshou, chinese competition kick boxing.

TIA Lund has taught the Five Forms Kung Fu system since 1999. Our style, Nam Siu Lam Ng Jing Kyun in chinese, has its roots in southern China and the Shaolin temple traditions.

TIA Lund is a community where the Kung Fu way of life is the mortar that keep us together. We share a passion for training and learning, and challenging and developing ourselves as we dig deeper into the ancient traditions of our style.

Since the start, we have had the opportunity to study and train within a traditional style of Kung Fu that allows us to grow and develop ourselves, our bodies and our minds, using open hand techniques as well as different kind of weapon techniques. We use combat as yet another way to challenge ourselves, and to gain a deeper knowledge of the traditions and techniques.

In 2012 the Qi Gong section opened, which allowed us to work deeper into the Chinese traditions of Taoism, the energetic aspects, and the perspective of Yin and Yang, while striving for harmony and balance from within.

We strive continuously to achieve perfection, working from outside and within. We challenge ourselves to grow and improve as we live the life of a Kung Fu practioner.

Every journey starts with the first step, so no matter where you are in life, you are always able to learn, grow and challenge yourself.

Welcome to us, and to our Way of Life!

Examination system



The club uses the a graduation system based on our style, Nam Siu Lam Ng Jing Kyun. This system also applies to all T.I.A clubs in Sweden.
