Shi Yamin is a 34th Generation Shaolin Temple Warrior Monk. ‘Shi Yanmin’ is Yanmin’s official Shaolin Temple name. These names are bestowed to those who become a sworn Monk of the Shaolin Temple.
Shi Yanmin started training in Kung Fu from a young age in a local Kung Fu school. Through his intense training and academic achievements, Shi Yanmin was awarded admission into the Shaolin Temple in 1997. He became a full time Shaolin Temple Warrior Monk, specialising in traditional Shaolin forms, traditional weapons and San Da (Chinese Kickboxing). During his training, Shi Yanmin formed a profound life commitment to the Shaolin path after becoming inspired by how Shaolin training could transform one’s life. After many years of learning under the Shaolin Temple, he was awarded the title of Master.
Shi Yanmin is currently the Headmaster of UK Shaolin Temple. His long held dream has been to establish an authentic Shaolin Temple in the UK so that people can learn Shaolin Kung Fu and Chan philosophy in an authentic and dedicated facility. This dream is a difficult task for one person, so Shi Yanmin is still working hard today to achieve this goal.
