MASTER SHAOFAN ZHU
Master Shaofan Zhu is a doctor and a Qi Gong Master Instructor, originally from Southern China, now living in Switzerland. He is the founder of the China Wushu Institute (www.chinawushu.ch). He studied and practised martial arts from a very early age. In 1996 he won a gold medal in China in his discipline, Taiji Faust and Taiji sword. He went on to win two more golds, this time in the European championships in 2000.
Master Shaofan has also studied and trained in Myoreflex therapy and traditional Chinese medicine at the University of Chengdu. He continued his education with the Fei family of Nanjing, China, who passed Chinese medicine knowledge and Qi Gong training down through 15 generations. Myoreflex therapy is a treatment that combines western medical knowledge and neurophysiology with traditional techniques from Chinese medicine.
There are many schools of medicine in China. The Emei Daoist Alchemy School of Medicine and Health Cultivation is one of the most famous. Master Ming Liang Zhang, who trained Master Shaofan is 14th in the Emei Qi Gong lineage. On request from the World Medical Qi Gong society he travels extensively to speak at seminars on Emei Health Cultivation, Health Qigong, Medical Qi Gong and Qi Gong therapy.
Master Shaofan Zhu also travels extensively in Europe and China delivering training and seminars to doctors, physiotherapists and athletes. We are very privileged that he accepted the invitation to come to Ireland as he also has a busy practice and training school in Switzerland.
However, when Master Shaofan came to Ireland in 2018 to deliver the first 3 day training event outside of Europe, it was not his first time to visit the west of Ireland or the Gaeltacht area. Over 30 years before that, he arrived in Dublin with his Swiss girlfriend and they hitched to Galway and took the ferry to Inis Mór, one of the Aran islands.
He spent a forthnight camping on Dún Aonghus. The energy of Dún Aonghus stayed with him all those years and on his return visit in 2018 we visited Dún Aonghus again and as he practiced Qi Gong there he felt the céad mile fáilte ( a hundred thousand welcomes) enfold his spirit.
