"Hi! My name is Shi Chang Dao, or simply Master Dao.
I am the Chief Instructor of the downtown Toronto school and also run an online school at LearnShaolin.com.
I opened the school in the fall of 2011 under the guidance of my Shi Fu, Master Shi Guo Song.
He is an authentic Shaolin monk that still practices traditional Shaolin kung fu martial arts, qi gong, and chan."
"Many cultures have a structured lifestyle yet it does not teach us how to be strong physically or mentally from within as we experience life.
Healthy means being able to do what you want to now and when you are in your elderly years.
I am very grateful to be able to pass on his teachings to help others through martial arts kung fu, tai chi, qi gong, meditation, and philosophy."
"My school aspires to help people of any age, any ethnicity, and any religious background. By joining my school you are making the effort to dedicate time and resources for improving yourself."

We've started a ping pong club at our school! It's been a great addition to the available activities we have at our downtown Toronto school location.
Also known as Table Tennis, Ping Pong is a great aerobic activity that improves cardio, focus, hand-eye coordination, and reaction. Shaolin Kung Fu compliments Ping Pong by improving stability, footwork, and power.
The tables were donated by our students - thank you!
On Thursdays, we have a free coaching night wher... [more]

What is Anxiety?
Anxiety is a feeling of 'worriness' resulting from uncertainty. Some major sources of anxiety are social (expectations and judgements from society, family, and friends), financial well-being, mental and physical well-being, and death.
