Shifu Shi Xing Wei

My study of the martial arts began at the age of three.  Growing up, I continued to explore various systems of martial arts. I first began teaching at sixteen years when my teacher at the time left the country. I had fallen so in love with  martial arts that I rallied the students and began teaching until the Grandmaster found a new teacher. The experience of teaching awoke something in me even deeper in in regards to my passion for the martial arts. For a total of twenty-three years,  I haved trained in and explored the following systems: Taekwondo (5 years), Muay Thai/Muay Boran (2 years), Taiji (3 years), Kajukenbo (2 years), Capoeira (7 years), Filipino martial arts (5 years), Western boxing (2 years), and lastly Traditional Shaolin Kung Fu (20 years). In 2007, I received my discipleship of 32nd Generation of the monastery name Shi Xing Wei from Grandmaster Shi De Shan, a 31st Generation monk of the Shaolin monastery. I continue to teach and expand my horizons, and now I am the co-founder of the Martial Arts Wellness Group at 311 Spencer Lane in San Antonio, TX. 210-995-6235 www.sashaolinkungfu.com  FB: @SAShaolinKungfu
