At the age of 16 he joined the Shaolin Temple, where he spent 15 years studying and training to become a monk under his master Shi Yong Xin. During this time he learnt about Ch'an Buddhist culture and philosophy, the healing arts of meditation, qi gong, breathing techniques and all the traditional Ch'an martial arts.
