ShiFu Shi Yan Ming
Shi Yan Ming is a 34th Generation Shaolin Warrior Monk and Founder & Abbot of USA Shaolin Temple. Named “a real-life superhero” by The RZA from Wu-Tang Clan, Shifu’s 1-inch punch is more powerful than a car at 35mph as recorded by History Channel’s show, Stan Lee’s Super Humans. His disciples and students include Bokeem Woodbine of HALO, Wesley Snipes of Blade, RZA, Rosie Perez and many more. As one of the most respected martial arts legends of all time, he has been featured in numerous publications, documentaries, lecture appearances from museums to the US Naval Academy at Annapolis & interviews across the world including National Geographic, The New York Times, The Atlantic, The New Yorker, VICE Sports, VICE China, Grazia Homme (France), Vogue, Great Big Story, NPR & more. For his generation and age, Shifu’s physical abilities, wisdom, knowledge and upbringing makes him truly one in 3.3 billion on earth. Don’t miss your opportunity to learn with a living legend.
