Wong Kiew Kit states he is the fourth generation successor from the Southern Shaolin Monastery in China (not to be confused with the more commonly known Shaolin Monastery in Henan Province) and claims that he is a grandmaster of Shaolin Kung Fu and Chi Kung.[1] He is also the head of the Shaolin Wahnam Institute.

Martial arts

Grandmaster Wong received the Qigong Master of the Year award at the Second World Congress on Qigong held from 21 to 23 November 1997 in San Francisco, United States.[2]


Grandmaster Wong, born in 1944, started his life-long training of the Shaolin arts in 1954 when he began learning Shaolin Kungfu from the famous Shaolin master, Sifu Lai Chin Wah, who was popularly known as Uncle Righteousness. Grandmaster Wong became his best disciple.[3]


He teaches Shaolin Cosmos Qigong, Shaolin Kung Fu, Tai Chi Chuan, Zen and also lion dance. Grandmaster Wong has over 2000 students throughout the world in The Americas, Europe, and the Asia Pacific.[4]

Career as an author

Grandmaster Wong has authored several books on martial arts and philosophy. His works include Chi Kung For Health and Vitality, [5] The Art of Shaolin Kung Fu,[6] The Complete Book of Tai Chi Chuan,[7] The Complete Book of Zen, [8] Introduction to Shaolin Kung Fu,[9] The Complete Book of Chinese Medicine, [10] The Complete Book of Shaolin.[11] and Sukhavati: Western Paradise, [12]

Lineage

Grandmaster Wong claims to be the fourth generation successor of Jiang Nan from the Southern Shaolin Monastery in China who after 50 years of wandering, with the sole aim of finding a suitable successor, reached southern Thailand to teach a young Kung Fu master, Yang Fa Kun.

About 50 years later, Yang Fa Kun taught the Shaolin arts to Ho Fatt Nam.[13]Grandmaster Wong states his legacy is over 150 years old and can be traced through two patriarchs Lai Chin Wah and Ho Fatt Nam.[14] His affiliation with the historical Shaolin is questionable, as two other temples claim the same lineage and the abbot of the northern temple (most commonly referred to as the Shaolin Temple) denies any connection with Wong Kiew Kit's Southern Shaolin monastery.
