Shaolin in Mexico
Now authentic Shaolin Chan has a home in Mexico and the people there have the opportunity to realize the wonderful life they have been given through the deep philosophy of Shaolin Chan Buddhism and martial arts Over ten years ago Shifu Shi Yan Ming came to the US to give people here the opportunity to witness a unique aspect of Chinese culture. He was part of a group of touring Shaolin monks who were demonstrating authentic Shaolin Chan or Shaolin martial arts. They were sharing with us the modern day flowering of the rich past and traditions handed down heart to heart and mind to mind by the masters at the Shaolin Temple for over 1500 years. Although the demonstrations were popular and drew many people to witness the amazing physical feats and mental focus, Shifu realized that he could share even more with us. He decided to stay behind in America eventually founding the USA Shaolin Temple in Manhattan.
Today the wonderful teachings of Shifu Shi Yan Ming are not just limited to his students here on the third floor of 678 Broadway. He has just recently come back from Mexico were he opened a new branch of the USA Shaolin Temple with the same vision and love driving his actions here in New York. Now authentic Shaolin Chan has a home in Mexico and the people there have the opportunity to realize the wonderful life they have been given through the deep philosophy of Shaolin Chan Buddhism and martial arts.
These people have the opportunity to join our growing family which also includes the students at the South African and Austrian branches of the USA Shaolin Temple. Shifu intends to help as many people as possible to have access to the beautiful traditions and philosophy of Shaolin. For him there are no boundaries and he believes in his heart that all people should have the opportunity to fully appreciate the wonderful life we have been given no matter where they reside or what thier background.
