Welcome To Songshan Chan Wu Canada Academy

Chan refers to the cultivation of the mind and wisdom of life. Wu refers to the Chinese traditional martial arts or Gong Fu, which trains the ability and skills of the body. Gong Fu practice...

  • enhances the faculties of the body
  • improves the coordination of nerves with muscles and joints
  • increases the ability to defend oneself
  • trains one's character
  • tempers his willpower

Every martial artist no matter how skilled should keep a beginner mind. This way self improvement never ceases.

LEADER OF CHAN WU CANADA, Max Rendinella (Shifu)

Official Shifu/Master level certification

This past July Shifu Max was to be among the few to receive his official Shifu/Master level certification by Grandmaster Shi De Yang through the Chan Wu Federation and it's president Shi Xing Hong.

This makes him the first officially certified Shaolin Shifu in Canada by Shi De Yang and Shi Xing Hong's Chan Wu Federation.

This just 1 week before his 20 year mark in his Shaolin journey, reaffirming that he is much more than a consummate master of this martial art but a master of an entire art of living.

Congratulations to our master Max who is a true paradigm of determination and great ambassador of Canada in Shaolin.
