Master Dao, 35th Generation Shaolin Disciple

Master Dao's given Shaolin name is Shi Chang Dao (释常道). He is a 35th generation traditional Shaolin disciple with a verifiable lineage that goes back over 1,500 years.

For many years Master Dao trained under the careful guidance of Master Shi Guo Song, an authentic and famous Shaolin Monk from Shaolin Temple, China. One day his master accepted him as a disciple and supported his venture to help spread Shaolin arts and culture for the benefit of others.

Master Dao opened his own school in the downtown Toronto area in 2007 and has had the priviledge to teach Shaolin philosophy and martial arts to thousands of people across various disciplines including Meditation, Chan/Zen Philosophy, Shaolin Qigong, Shaolin Kung Fu, Shaolin Tai Chi / Gentle Fist, Shaolin style sanda /Chinese boxing, and self-defense.

He has made several television appearances, including One TV's program called Shaolin Tai Chi, CBC’s feature called Masters of the City, Keepers of an Ancient Culture, and news guest appearances on YTV The Zone, CBC News, Global News, CTV Your Morning, Fairchild Television, and Rogers Television with Joy Foster.

Master Dao: "My life vision is to help alleviate and prevent suffering for all by teaching others how to improve their mental and physical health, and by making these Shaolin arts and philosophy accessible to the masses."
