WuBin,the 21st century legend Master of Kung Fu-Wushu of China, mentor to Wushu masters,  
including Jet Li and Donnie Yen, will conduct a Kung Fu seminar for health cultivation with  
DeRu (Shawn Liu Xiangyang), 31st generation disciple of the Shaolin Temple. The event  
presented by SCF (Shaolin Chan Foundation) will be held on Feb. 14th from 9:00 AM till11:30  
AM at Shaolin Institute, located at 4350 Peachtree Industrial Blvd., Suite 500A, Norcross, GA  
"This is a unique seminar gathering of martial arts for health and natural healing with mind-body  
cultivation which promises to be an extraordinary experience for health-conscious individuals  
and martial artists," said the chief coordinator of the event. 
- The first part of seminar, presented by DeRu, will unveil the secret of ancient Zen natural living  
and healing arts apart from Zen mediation in quantum communication.
- The second part of the seminar will feature Zen-Tai-Gong (DeRu) and Kungfu for Health and 
Wellness (WuBin).
The first part of the seminar will include DeRu’s introduction and explanation of the principles  
of Qi (internal energy) and meridians in association with inner consciousness and inner Qi  
circulation along with the first two motions.
DeRu explains: “Tai Gong is about mind-body communication. Tai Gong is used to effectively  
cultivate the flow of Qi within the body and to train the mind(cortex) and the ‘mind’ of all cells  
to work together with one mission – to improve the functioning of the entire organism, especially  
of the immune and defense systems”
Zen-Tai-Gong Flex, included in the second part of the seminar, according to DeRu, can be  
applied to cultivate the Qi consciousness throughout the body and to communicate with all the  
cells of the body and mind to function together with ultimate efficiency and aptitude. 
WuBin expressed: “Kung Fu for health cultivation is used to apply the most basic Kung Fu  
motionsin partnership with mind consciousness and body Qi to channel and communicate the  
energy of the entire organism.” Wu Bin will teach some of the most fundamental moves of  
martial arts related to mind-body connection and self-cultivation with energy and blood flow for 
health and healing.” 
Of Zen, DeRu states, “When one is in total mind-body training, one associatesoneself to nothing  
and thinks of nothing, engaged in pure internal KungFu meditation, which is a pure expression of  
mind and Qi freedom and of the universe in which human beings are a part. Man is, after all, a  
microcosm of the universe.”
This will be an informative, step-by-step, action-guided seminar suitable for all ages and levels. 
WuBin is the most renowned Wushucoach in the world, having produced more  
Wushuchampions than any other coach in China. Of his many students, three stand out the most:  
the action movie superstars Jet Li, Donnie Yen and Wu Jin. He was also the technical chairman  
for the Asian Wushu Federation for over a decade. 
DeRu is one of two close disciples of the late, great spiritual leader and Great Grand Master Shi  
SuXi of the Shaolin Temple. Since 1995, DeRu has been the KungFu Sanshou technical  
chairman of the Pan-America Wushu/Kung Fu Federation. He has beencalled “The Godfather of  
Sanshou in America” by International Kung Fu Magazine and “The Father of American  
Sanshou” by Central Chinese TV Networks and other international press outlets. He has also

SWF Hosts a Seminar on Zen Natural Nutrition & Healing: An Enlightenment from the Irony of Cung Le 's “HGH Test"

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 23, 2014

SWF (Shaolin World Federation) and Shaolin Institute will hold, on November 7th at 6:30pm in Mobile, Alabama’s Civic Center, a seminar entitled: Zen Nutrition & Healing: “An Enlightenment from the Irony of Cung Le 's HGH Test." This test refers to a highly publicized "post-fight blood test on Aug. 23, performed by the Hong Kong Functional Medical Testing Center and ordered by the UFC, revealed Le, 42, had an hGH level of 18.162 mIU/mL, which is above normal ranges” according to an ESPN report on Oct. 13, 2014 (

The seminar is sponsored by the Shaolin Chan Foundation on disconnecting people from the tendency to rely on synthetic medicines in a fast-paced world to explore such question as “Why do people fall for medical 'quick fixes?'" This seminar is mainly to rediscover Zen natural medicine, nutrition, and healing with reflection on UFC recent "accusation" reported by ESPN on Sept. 30, 2014 (

The natural medicine of nutrition seminar at KSF-US Open Challenge explores reasons why more people have adopted a culture of “quick fixes” when it comes to health with an additional discussion on the accusation made by officials of the UFC regarding Cung Le ‘s elevated HGH level, as reported and discussed on ESPN website mentioned above.

From headaches to weight-loss, it seems as though everything has a pill which claims to better everyone’s situation effectively and, most importantly, promptly with little side-effects. A second thought is never given about the possible consequences.

“Admittedly, I felt the need to hold this seminar,” says Shi Deru. “I was surprised and heartbroken to hear of the news that UFC accused a long-time student, Cung Le, of taking performance-enhancement drugs after his most recent fight in Macau, China on August 23rd. In many years of training Cung Le, I have never known him to have taken any kind of performance-enhancing drugs.”

The Shaolin Institute advocates the practice of natural healing, nutrition, and self-empowering through high consciousness and total mind and body communication. “Cung Le has always integrated high forms of natural nutritional methods through smoothies and other dietary methods (among highly healthy conscious people) to his rigorous training regiments,” recalls Deru. “These smoothies only contained organic fruits and vegetables. Cung Le would travel everywhere with his blender in order to continue this daily nutritional high performance practice.”

Currently, Le is in process of appealing the accusation. A medical testing center not accredited with WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency), which is a standard requirement for UFC, carried out the test, according to ESPN report on Oct. 9 2014 (

Le and his manager, Gary Ibarra, are contesting the results which they claim that did not differentiate whether or not the level of HGH was either through synthetic abuse or naturally occurring in Le’s system. HGH naturally occurs and varies in the human body according to that ESPN report (

Importantly, institutions such as the Shaolin Institute believe that resorting to use of drugs and other synthetic inhibitors for performance enhancement is self-destructive and suppresses the body’s inner abilities to treat and heal.

“Thus, Chan (Zen) teaching in non-drug therapy and unveiling the inner-wisdom and abilities of the body and mind continues. Everyone can do a better job in enhancing our performance and abilities through high consciousness and natural nutrition. It seems like a challenge against all odds, however we as intelligent human beings can realize the importance of living full and prosperous lives naturally,” says Shi DeRu.

The seminar on this November 7th will concentrate on the above and overcoming people's dependency on unnatural means of healing and/or enhancing modern people superficial needs. The evening will include an open discussion on natural medicine with organic nutrition along with practice of high-level meditation in order to tap into high conscious people natural healing abilities.
