About Us

Established in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada in 1987, the SYL Wushu Taiji Qigong Institute (Mount Shu Wuji Xiao Yao Martial Arts System) has taught and promoted Chinese martial arts (Wushu), Tai Chi and Qigong to tens of thousands of people around the world and is a pioneer in the cultural exchange between the East and West. Our school and its students have been involved in countless national and international competitions and demonstrations. We are the home and host of many Chinese martial arts champions. All of our instructors have competition experience in both judging and competing (many having won numerous gold medals) and have been featured on television and in magazines.

In addition to producing superior athletes, our Mission is to inspire our students to become “well-rounded martial artists” and to promote health and wellness through ancient Oriental Arts. Through a broad program including both external and internal Chinese martial arts styles as well as Qigong practice, our students will possess a solid knowledge base in a wide range of martial disciplines. Training at the institute, they will also develop key virtues such as respect, humility, integrity, empathy, resilience, responsibility and perseverance. The institute aims at fostering the growth of our students physically, mentally and spiritually and continues to grow, research, and share the essence of Oriental Arts with the world.

We welcome all visitors and new students to our school.
