Matthew Wood, our founder, has practiced Shaolin Qigong since 2009. From the first experience to this day his life has transformed for the better on many different levels and continues to do so.
Where it all began
Prior to 2009, Matthew practiced Tai Chi at another school. He noticed tingling in his hands and strange sensations in his body when he performed the warm-up exercises. He marveled that these sensations were energy (chi or qi). In fact, he experienced more energy during the warm-up than he did in the main Tai Chi session itself! He learned the warm-up exercises were known as Chi Kung (or Qigong).
Curious to find out more, Matthew’s research led him to Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit‘s incredible book “The Art of Chi Kung”. He was blown away by the breadth and depth of the art. Speculating that if even a small fraction of the claims were true, Matthew would consider it incredible. He can now indeed testify that Shaolin Qigong is incredible!
Sifu Matthew has trained with Sifu Wong’s Shaolin Wahnam Institute and directly with Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit himself, both in the UK and in Malaysia for the last 10 years.
Matthew has transformed his life through a host of amazing benefits by training in Shaolin Cosmos Qigong, and you can read more about them here.
When Sifu Wong appointed Matthew a Qigong Instructor in 2018 he was delighted and honoured. Matthew is now focusing on passing these incredible, wonderful and supremely practical arts on to others.
