The White Lotus Temple System was founded by Brian K Leishman in 1996 AD and was introduced to the general public in 2017. This specific branch of the White Lotus System of Unarmed Combat® is used to impart the third dimension of martial preparation. In terms of specific system structure, temple students are systematically guided through a series of courses that are associated with “mastery”.

In this course, students are formally introduced to the physical attributes, mental attributes, and emotional attributes pertinent to temple preparation. A series of attributes, which are used to acquire martial knowledge and develop martial skills.
