  • I am very fortunate to have crossed paths with the Shaolin Centre. The past five years of training have really been a life changing experience. I think that finding a teacher that is as skilled in the martial aspect as he is in the spiritual, is a great gift. I am very fortunate.

  • Well…I'm a pretty peaceful guy, but behind every peaceful-looking person is a pretty angry person, really. Shaolin Kung Fu Centre gives me a place to put that anger, because I get to 'act' like a tiger. Doesn't that sound like the ultimate therapy?

  • At the Shaolin Kung Fu Centre, I learned the proper way to breathe. I study a discipline that helps me to focus and to succeed in my professional life. I was a newcomer to Ottawa, but found a home in the school with Sifu, his family, and my kung fu brothers and sisters.
