Shaolin Adventurers - Part 3
Meet the Masters.
All the training at the Kunyu Mountain Shaolin Martial Arts Academy is delivered by specialists who have amassed a wealth of skill and knowledge. ID Fight Unit members Ronin, Stuart and Sylvie feel very privileged to be studying under such great masters. They occasionally feel a little exhausted too as they are put through their paces daily. Some of the training your see in the movies is true... and yes it does hurt!
Master Guo is the Baji teacher for the guys and also takes them for Qigong and Tai Chi in the mornings and the evenings.
Master Guo started to learn traditional Chinese kung fu from his grandfather at a young age. He is a traditional martial artist with high moralities and a friendly personality, who has been teaching internal kung fu for over 20 years.
He specialises releasing the inner strength helping to create skilful defence and attacks. He is the first successor of this traditional internal subject of breaking a flagstone in half on a block of bean curd successfully and has been documented by lots of media. Due this vast understanding of the subject, he created his own unique Chi Kung styles, which have been listed by The National Martial Arts Committees in competitions.
Master Qu is the Bagua teacher for the guys. A master of traditional Mantis boxing and Bagua Palm with over 20 year’s experience, he also has learnt Chinese traditional medicine, massage and acupuncture.
He has been teaching for over 7 years with a friendly approach to his
students combining this with high moralities i.e. no slacking tolerated or else!
Master Shi Xing Xin is our Shaolin teacher and is a 32nd generation monk of the Shaolin temple. Born into a kung fu family he started to learn Hong fist from his grandfather since he was very young.
His kung fu has taken him around the world to countries including USA, France, England and Singapore for performance and teaching.
