Welcome to STQI Toronto!

“Hi! My name is Shi Chang Dao and I am the Chief Instructor of the downtown Toronto school. I opened the school in the fall of 2011 under the guidance of my Shi Fu, Master Shi Guo Song. He is an authentic Shaolin monk that still practices traditional Shaolin kung fu martial arts, qi gong, and chan. “

“Our North American culture is very good at creating a structured lifestyle yet it does not teach us how to be strong physically or mentally from within as we experience life. I am very grateful to be able to pass on his teachings to help others through martial arts kung fu, qi gong, meditation, and philosophy. “

“My school aspires to help people of any age, any ethnicity, and any religious background. By joining my school you are making the effort to dedicate time and resources for improving yourself.”

– Shi Chang Dao, 35th Generation Shaolin Disciple
