Shifu Heng Wei

Director: Tang Long Chinese Cultural Centre

Shifu Heng Wei is a 35th Generation Master from Shaolin (China).

He began his Kung Fu journey at the age of 6 when his father took him to study with old Masters in the village. From an early age he showed such great promise and enthusiasm that his family sent him off to study the ancient art of Shaolin Kung Fu.  Shifu Heng Wei was a very dedicated student who trained for 8 hours a day, 6 days a week. Even when classes were finished for the day he would sneak out of bed and practice his forms in the moonlight. Such dedication brought rewards and by the time he was 16  Shifu Heng Wei was proficient in all aspects of Shaolin Kung Fu from Traditional Weapons, Forms, Sanshou and  Qi Gong. With his training complete he then became a Master and a teacher at the school.  Even after become fully equalified in all aspects of Shaolin Kung Fu Shifu Heng Wei still sought to become an even better martial artist and sought out other styles to learn. He consequently went on to study  Tai Chi (Chen and Yang styles) and both Yeushan Temple and Wu Style Ba Ji Quan.

In 2003 Shifu had the opportunity  to come  the UK  and has been here for 11 years.  He teaches group classes and private One to One sessions for both adults, children and corporate clients.
