Shi Miao Hai Shaolin Kung Fu Master


Zhang Qian, also known by his Buddhist name ‘Shi Miao Hai’ (36th generation Shaolin Kung Fu instructor), was born in Jining, Shandong Province, China. A specialist in traditional Shaolin Kung Fu and Sanda, he began studying Kung Fu at an early age in his native province. In 1996, at the age of 8, he started his Kung Fu training, and by the age of 10, he joined the Fawang Temple to pursue intensive instruction. From 2000 to 2004, he participated in numerous regional and national competitions, frequently finishing first in events such as traditional barehanded Taos, staff, and sword forms. From 2005 to 2008, Shi Miao Hai toured the world—including France, Italy, Greece, and Spain—to promote cultural exchange and the teaching of Chinese martial arts. Upon returning to China in 2008, he was appointed chief instructor at the Fawang Temple, a position he held until 2018, when Kung Fu schools within Buddhist temples were no longer permitted.
