Shifu Han Li
35th Generation Disciple
Ever since I was a child I have loved martial arts. Watching martial art legends like Bruce Lee and what they were able to do fascinated me. I always thought it would be amazing to do what they could. It wasn’t until I was 14 that I discovered the world of Shaolin. I went to see Shaolin monks perform and instantly knew I had to learn. What attracted me to Shaolin Kung fu is that are so many different styles: tiger, mantis, crane etc.
Once I finished studying I visited Shaolin Temple UK and liked what I saw. I enrolled later that week. I’ve been training for the past 11 years. Over the years I started to see changes in myself, not just physically but mentally as well. Through hard training and dedication, I have developed good fighting skills, increased my flexibility, become faster, stronger and grown up a lot from when I started.
Now, as a teacher, it is my job to carry on the teachings of our Grand Master Shifu Yanzi.
