Master Dao, Shì Cháng Dào (释常道)
35th Generation Shaolin Disciple and Chief Instructor
Master Dao's given Shaolin name is Shì Cháng Dào. 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 2011 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.
