Shifu Browne is the Chief Instructor at Shaolin Dao Lu and is a 34th Generation Shaolin Warrior disciple of Shaolin Temple in China. Shifu Browne is the disciple of Shifu Shi Yan Zi, and a direct disciple of the Abbot Shi Yong Xin (Shaolin Temple China). Shifu Browne has a very long and rooted legacy in Kung Fu and has worked very hard over the years to spread Shaolin/Chan Culture throughout the UK and abroad. Shifu Browne studied Kung Fu from a very early age and at the tender age of 9 years old, achieved his first black belt in Taekwondo and was at the time one of the youngest black belts in the British Isles.

Shifu Browne went on to study many forms of martial arts, including: Wing Chun, Karate, Judo, Kickboxing, and Tai Chi, and was lucky to be taught by some of the greatest teachers alive today: Grandmaster Wu Bin (teacher of Jet Li the film star & Head Coach of the Beijing Wushu Team), Shifu Shi Yan Zi (Shaolin Temple UK), Grandmaster Guolin (Shaolin Temple USA), Grandmaster Chen Zhenglei (Chen Tai Chi family), and many more.

At the age of 18 Shifu Browne travelled to Shaolin Temple in China to fulfil his dreams and was taken under the wing of some of the greatest masters in Shaolin Temple and resided there for over 3 years. Shifu Browne majored in: Shaolin Steel Jacket, Sanda, Chen Tai Chi/Shaolin Soft Fist (Roe Quan), Traditional Shaolin Forms/Taolu and Chi Gong.

Shifu Browne has been teaching for over 30 years and is very well received and respected in the world of martial arts Masters. Shifu Browne has taught and cultivated a large number of students over the years and lifted them to a very high standard, some of whom now have their own schools and are Masters/coaches in their own right, with Shifu Browne as their foundation and guide. Shifu Browne is solely responsible for the migration of all traditional Shaolin Monks that are currently residing in the UK and has spent a lot of time, energy, money and great effort in bringing Traditional Shaolin Monks to teach and perform in the UK.
