Wong Kiew Kit, popularly known as Sifu Wong, is the fourth generation successor of Venerable Jiang Nan from the famous Shaolin Monastery in China and Grandmaster of Shaolin Wahnam Institute of Kungfu and Chi Kung. He received the “Chi Kung Master of the Year” Award during the Second World Congress on Chi Kung held in San Francisco in 1997. He is an internationally acclaimed author of books on the Shaolin arts and Buddhism including Introduction to Shaolin Kungfu (1981), The Art of Chi Kung (1993), The Art of Shaolin Kungfu (1996), The Complete Book of Tai Chi Chuan (1996), Chi Kung for Health and Vitality (1997), The Complete Book of Zen (1998), The Complete Book of Chinese Medicine (2002), The Complete Book of Shaolin (2002), Sukhavati: Western Paradise (2002), The Shaolin Arts: Master Answers Series (2002) and The Way of the Master (2014). Since 1987, Sifu Wong has spent more time teaching chi kung than kungfu, because he feels that while kungfu serves as an interesting hobby, chi kung serves an urgent public need, particularly in overcoming degenerative and psychiatric illnesses. Sifu Wong is one of the few masters who has generously introduced the once secretive Shaolin Chi Kung to the public, and has helped many people to obtain relief or overcome so-called “incurable” diseases like hypertension, asthma, rheumatism, arthritis, diabetes, migraine, gastritis, gall stones, kidney failure, depression, anxiety and even cancer. He stresses the Shaolin philosophy of sharing goodness with all humanity, and is now dedicated to spreading the wonders and benefits of the Shaolin arts to people all over the world irrespective of race, culture and religion.
