I have studied several different styles of Chi Gong since 1996 and currently practice the following:
Shaolin Temple Chi Gong
I am currently an ongoing student of Master Shi Yong Yao and Grandmaster Shi Guo Song, both senior monks from the Shaolin Temple in China. Master Song was head coach for the Shaolin Temple Kung Fu School also in China. He has taken residence in Oakland, CA. and continues to teach locally, in Canada and abroad. Masters Yau and Song teach Ba Duan Jin (8-Section Brocade) and Yi Jin Jing (muscle/tendon change classic) in addition to other traditional forms of Chinese Chi Gong.
My introduction to the Luohan/Rouquan sets was with Jessie Tsao,
M.S. of San Diego, CA. and I continue main instruction in Luohan Quan with Shaolin Master Shi Yong Yao in Oakland, CA.
Jessie Tsao was born and raised in Penglai in Shandong
Province, China. Mr. Tsao has been practicing Shaolin Kung Fu, taijiquan and chi gong for over 38 years. Jessie learned the luohan and rouquan sets from Sifu Shi Yongkai, 33rd generation inheritor of the
Both styles are complete Chi Gong sets and are recognized as traditional methods for cultivating mental focus, body awareness/conditioning and spiritual development.
