PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Shaolin is a 1,500 year old culture based on the ideas of Chan philosophy (Zen) for mental health and martial arts for self defence and physical health.

Master Dao is a 35th generation Shaolin Warrior with a direct lineage of this Shaolin tradition. He offers Shaolin Kung Fu, Shaolin Tai Chi, Shaolin Qigong, and Shaolin Meditation classes and workshops at the downtown Toronto location.

His team also provides free workshops to people in need, such as seniors, the poor, and the weak. It is his mission to keep the Shaolin arts and traditions alive today by modernizing its teachings and helping to motivate people to practice for health.

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR is a painted mural that can showcase the essence of Shaolin Spirit through the arts of Shaolin Shaolin Kung Fu, Shaolin Tai Chi, Shaolin Qigong, and Shaolin Meditation (and philosophy of Chan or Zen). Shaolin Spirit is the combined demonstration of Zen philosophy and martial arts for self-defence and health. May contain Chinese characters and/or English words. May also include physical elements such as facade materials or as proposed within our financial means.
