He began learning martial arts with Judo in 1978 and English boxing in 1982. In 1987, he steadily began practicing Professor Nick Cierios’s Hawaiian Kenpo under the guidance of master Michel Drouin until 2002.
In 2001, he continued his studies with Master Di Guo Bao at the Shaolin Monastery in Henan, and he met Master Shi De Cheng. From that moment, he abandoned part of his occupations in Canada in order to extend the duration of his annual trips to China, living with his master for periods of up to 9+ months per year.
In 2009, he returned to Canada and founded the “Sutton Shaolin Zen Martial Center” which later became the “Shaolin Wuji Center”, in order to promote this authentic heritage.
From 2005 to 2013, Master Shi De Cheng visited him and received him in China on several occasions each year to continue his teaching and from 2009 to validate the progress of the martial artists of the school. Together, they visited several schools in Quebec to promote and transmit the arts of Shaolin.
