It is very expensive to organize an optimal team with adequate training and financial resources. Without donors, we are unable to effectively promote and encourage more Canadians and especially children to represent us on the international stage. With donors and your support, we will be able to spend more effort and resources training and doing even better at the Zhengzhou International Shaolin Wushu tournament this October!
Ultimately, this is about the awareness of the benefits of traditional Shaolin culture. The Shaolin Temple Quanfa Institute is a group of 5 authentic Shaolin schools across Canada that offers the Shaolin arts of kung fu martial arts, qigong, meditation, and chan philosophy. These can greatly help many people to develop stronger physical and mental health, including children to develop confidence and self-discipline.
This project will greatly increase awareness of the benefits of the Shaolin arts on mental and physical well being. It can reach thousands of people around the world and not just Canadians. We have the advantage of a rare authentic lineage that goes back 1500 years and it's time to make a difference! The unique essence of Shaolin is Chan which means meditation. It is embedded in all the Shaolin arts and promotes one to calm the mind and spend time for oneself.
This project will greatly foster a sense of Canadian pride and will in the long term continue to enable the development of athletes to represent Canada, thus encourage more people to participate and benefit from the Shaolin arts of kung fu, qi gong, meditation, and chan philosophy.
