The Ten Shaolin Laws

The Ten Shaolin Laws are moral laws aimed at helping the student in his/her personal and spiritual development. It is a requirement of the Shaolin Wahnam Institute that prospective students agree to abide by these guidelines before taking a course. They are not forced upon the student, the student accepts them because he chooses to and because he believes they are helpful to him/her in physical, emotional, mental and spiritual development. If he/she breaks the Ten Shaolin Laws, despite sufficient warnings, he/she may be asked to leave the Shaolin training, not as a punishment, but because the training is not suitable for him/her.
