This performance will feature Shi Yan Lu, the deputy monk at the Shaolin Temple in Henan, China. Master Shi Yan Lu has been invited on numerous occasions to perform and teach in several countries in Asia, Europe and the Americas. In 1998, he won the gold medal at the International Wushu Performing Meeting in Toronto, Canada. For the past ten years, he has been the assistant of his Shifu, the Venerable Abbot of Shaolin, Master Shi Yong Xin.
In 2003, Shi Yong Xin officially named Shi Yan Lu the Master instructor of the Warrior Monks of Shaolin (Wu Seng), the highest recognition for a monk in Shaolin. He is the manager of the external schools of the Temple (there are three). He wishes to unify the teaching of Shaolin Kung Fu worldwide with an official ranking system created and authorized by the Shaolin Temple.
This is a not-to-be-missed event for Chicago Shaolin Temple students and anyone in the Chicagoland area interested in martial arts.
