SHIFU HENG REN
Shifu Shi Heng Ren started off his martial arts journey when he was 16 years old in Shotokan karate. Thereafter, he also studied various martial arts disciplines such as Hung Kuen, Yongchun Quan, Jun Fan Do, Jeet Kune Do, Vale Tudo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai boxing. In 1999 whilst working in Lancaster, he saw the Shaolin Wheel Of Life stage show in Preston and it was from there his Shaolin gong fu journey began!
Shifu Heng Ren started training at Shaolin Temple UK in North London under various teachers. There he met and trained in Chen style taijiquan and under Shifu Yang for Shaolin gong fu. In August 2006, Shifu Heng Ren became Shifu Yang's disciple. Since then, he has been working tirelessly on developing and perfecting all forms taught to him by Shifu Yang. Shifu Heng Ren is versed in traditional empty hand forms (Xiao Hong Quan, Tongbei Quan, etc), imitation forms (monkey, mantis, drunken), weapons forms, Shaolin health qigong (Ba Duan Jing), Shaolin iron body qigong (iron eyes, iron throat, iron belly, iron head), Shaolin Sanshou boxing and Chen style Taiji forms.
He went to promote Shaolin Culture in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia in 2012 to set up Shaolin Culture Malaysia and has just recently returned back to London to continue learning under Shifu Yang and to help teach at Shaolin Culture UK.
