What is this About?

We are organizing a team of athletes to represent Canada at an international Shaolin martial arts tournament in October. This festival is held every 2 years and hosts over 50 countries and 2,000 athletes from around the world.

Why We Need Your Help

With your collective support, we will be able to further develop our athletes, encourage participation, and educate others about the mental and physical health benefits of Shaolin martial arts, qigong, and meditation.

Why is it Important to Represent Canada?

Canada’s presence was missing at the last world-stage competition in 2016 because of the lack of representation and financial support. And yet, many major countries of the world, such as the USA, Germany, Norway, Columbia, Switzerland, India, Russia, Sweden, Thailand, Slovakia, Singapore, etc., have regular representation.

What is Authentic Shaolin?

Shaolin is a 1,500 year old culture recognized today for its incredible martial arts, making it an iconic symbol of Chinese culture. It was founded in a temple in a young forest near Deng Feng, China. We are not a religious institution and instead practice what is called Shaolin Chán philosophy. It is compatible with all religions, non-religions, and spirituality.
