Master Shi Guogong and Master Dao Talk About Canadian Shaolin History on Fairchild TV
Watch this special Fairchild Television documentary on traditional Shaolin in Canada! It was filmed in 2015.
Since it's in Mandarin Chinese, here's a quick summary of the content:
Master Guosong talks about how he first established Shaolin in Canada. In the beginning he only had 3 students. It was important to teach student's properly through the traditional methods and first build their foundation. Students benefit not only from developing physical prowess, but also learn cultural virtues such as respect for the elders and self-discipline.
Meanwhile, Master Guosong's amazing history of his life in Shaolin and coming to Canada is shown.
Master Dao is also introduced as Master Guosong's key disciple and discusses his goals of helping his master in carrying on the traditions.
Master Dao talks about the early challenges of training in Shaolin Kung Fu and then how he established the first school in downtown Toronto. Through his training and experience, he learned that the most valuable lessons are about mental development and qigong.
