Welcome to STQI Toronto!

"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."

- Dao Shi, 35th Generation Shaolin Disciple

It is very difficult to encapsulate a 1,500 year old culture in just 4 Chinese characters, but the Chinese language has a way of doing just that! Embedded in the 4 Chinese characters of our logo are the characteristics that make our Shaolin culture so unique: On the left column are the two characters: 少林 (Shàolín). In English we accept the word "Shaolin" to be the same. 少 means young. 林 means forest. So together, "Young Forest" is the name gi... [more]
