Xiao Hong has been with the SYL Wushu Taiji Qigong Institute since 1982, long before its formal inception. He is a well respected (and feared) instructor at the school, and quite often can be heard giving reprimands rather than praise. A professional coach in every respect, Xiao Hong has personally trained and continues to support many of the institute’s advanced Wushu students. Originally from China, he began Wushu in his late teens after immigrating to Canada. He earned the respect of Grandmaster Liang after proving himself capable of many difficult feats, despite Grandmaster Liang’s early reservations in teaching him. He now trains his students with the same relentless intensity at which he originally trained.
