Wu Dao Presents: 31st Generation Shaolin Warrior Monk, Shifu Shi De Cheng

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - July 31, 2008) - Wu Dao Kung Fu and Tai Chi is pleased to present Shaolin Warrior Monk, Shifu Shi De Cheng, to the New England martial arts community. Wu Dao's Shaolin Intensive Training from August 23 to September 5 is designed to provide martial artists with instruction on the fundamentals of Shaolin Kung Fu. Classes will be taught by Shifu Shi De Cheng.

Shifu Shi De Cheng began martial arts training at the age of 6. He was admitted to the Shaolin Temple as a 31st generation Shaolin Warrior Monk under Shifu Shi Su Yuan to carry on the Chan Buddhist and Shaolin Kung Fu traditions that can be traced back 1500 years. Shifu was among the first group of Shaolin Warrior Monks to introduce Shaolin Kung Fu to the Western world. Since then, he has been teaching at his school in Deng Feng, China, and traveling around the world to inspire the practice of Shaolin Kung Fu.

The 2-week Shaolin Intensive Training at Wu Dao offers adult classes in Shaolin Kung Fu basic skills, Shaolin Staff basic techniques, and Chen Style Tai Chi, as well as a children's Shaolin workshop. During the first week of training students will spend considerable time focusing on the basic principles and techniques taught in Shaolin Kung Fu. In the second week, approved students will have the opportunity to learn basic staff techniques that are the building blocks of weapons forms and fighting. Students interested in the Internal Arts will enjoy focused sessions with Shifu Shi De Cheng, learning Chen Style Tai Chi. Children ages 6 to 12 are invited to join the Children's Shaolin workshop on Wednesday, September 3, to become acquainted with Shifu and Shaolin style martial arts training.
