The Way of the Master


The Way of the Master


This is the real-life story of a boy who has become a world legend.

The book, which is being divided into three parts, records in detail the life of Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit who is an expert in the Shaolin arts:

  • The Formative Years – Traces the early age of Grandmaster Wong and how he learned Shaolin Kungfu, Taijiquan, Zen, chi kung and Chinese medicine from patriarchs of the arts.
  • Building the Foundation – Describes how Grandmaster Wong founded Shaolin Wahnam and started to teach the Shaolin arts to the public.
  • Spreading Health and Happiness – Records the travel of Grandmaster Wong to numerous countries to teach the Shaolin arts to more than 60,000 students in over 35 countries, helping people suffering from so-called incurable diseases to regain their good health, and giving vitality, longevity, mental clarity, peak performance and spiritual joy to people who are already healthy irrespective of race, culture and religion.

Grandmaster Wong is also an international best-selling author. His writing is clear and a pleasure to read. Even if you may not be interested in the subjects he writes about, you will still enjoy reading his autobiography which is full of fun and humour, and benefit much from the real-life stories which illustrate many invaluable lessons to enrich our daily life.

About the author:

Wong Kiew Kit, popularly known as Sifu Wong, is the fourth generation successor of Venerable Jiang Nan from the famous Shaolin Monastery in China and Grandmaster of Shaolin Wahnam Institute of Kungfu and Chi Kung. He received the “Chi Kung Master of the Year” Award during the Second World Congress on Chi Kung held in San Francisco in 1997. He has practiced and taught the Shaolin arts for more than 3 decades and has more than 60,000 students all over the world.

Since 1987, Sifu Wong has spent more time teaching Chi Kung than Kungfu, because he feels that while Kungfu serves as an interesting hobby, Chi Kung serves an urgent public need, particularly in overcoming degenerative and psychiatric illnesses.

Sifu Wong is one of the few masters who have generously introduced the once secretive Shaolin Chi Kung to the public, and has helped many people to obtain relief or overcome so-called “incurable” diseases like hypertension, asthma, rheumatism, arthritis, diabetes, migraine, gastritis, gall stones, kidney failure, depression, anxiety and even cancer.

He stresses the Shaolin philosophy of sharing goodness with all humanity, and is now dedicated to spreading the wonders and benefits of the Shaolin arts to people all over the world irrespective of race, culture and religion.

Sifu Wong is also an internationally acclaimed author of books on the Shaolin arts and Buddhism.
