Saskatoon Workshops with Shigong Painter

It is a rare opportunity to study with one of the world’s best living martial artists of the last half-century. We are blessed when the head of the Li family’s Dao Qi Quan arts and Jiulong Baguazhan comes to Orchard Kung Fu.

Dr. Painter inherited the entire Daoqiquan (“Martial Way of Vitality”) system from Li, Long-Dao and is, thus, the world’s authority on the Li Family Arts.

  • Founder's Day at the Gompa

  • Dr. Painter's North American Jiulong Baguazhang Seminar Schedule


Just as Shigong painter travels to Saskatoon twice every year, he gives workshops around North America. If you have the chance to attend one of these workshops, you will learn a lot; the topic is irrelevant! You will also get a chance to meet some of your brothers and sisters around the world. They will treat you like family.


Feel free to inquire about them if you are interested. Shigong often goes to North Carolina and Boston-area, and he may, eventually, be travelling to Hamilton, Ottawa, California, Minneapolis, and Florida!


Of course, if you are travelling, do not hesitate to get some training in while you’re in London, UK or Sydney, Australia!
