CBC Masters of Our City Keepers of an Ancient Culture Featuring Shaolin Temple Quanfa Institute

Our STQI family of schools were featured on CBC's production titled 'CBC Masters of Our City Keepers of Ancient Culture'.

Watch Master Shi Guo Song perform a traditional Shaolin Praying Mantis form and appreciate the speed, sharpness, and fluidity of his movements. He also talks about some philosophy and qigong and how he views traditional Shaolin going forward through his disciples.

You also get to witness Master Shi Guo Song's disciple and students ramming a telephone into his belly. Watch closely as he actually moves into the pole which then pushes him back! Incredibly he is not hurt. The power of qigong!

Finally, the downtown Toronto STQI school is also featured as an early version of Master Dao talks about how he became a disciple.

This was first aired on CBC on September 26, 2013.
