Our lineage through the late Temple Master Fu Yen (also translated as HU or HO Yen) to Grand Master O. E. Simon, the International founder of Temple Kung-Fu nearly five decades ago. The lineage will continue, as we train in this style known as Moh Kempo (Moo Pai), which is a blend of Shaolin Animal styles: Tiger, Dragon, Panther/Leopoard, Snake and Crane, White Tiger (Pai Hu Shih) and, finally, the White Priest (Pai Seng Shih).
White, Yellow, Orange, Green, Blue, Brown 1/2/3, Black 1/2/3, Black 4 (Apprentice Master), Black – 5 (Master).
Instruction and Mission
Master Abossein started martial arts at the age of 15. Not finding what he was looking for in Karate led him to switch to Tae Kwon Do after a few years. Still not satisfied with the results after the next few years encouraged him to continue his search for a powerful yet graceful and versatile style. From the very beginning he recognized that his search had ended once he started practicing the Southern Shaolin White Tiger Kung Fu over 30 years ago. He was awarded 5th Degree “Master” by Grand Master Simon in July of 2005.
Note: Traditionally no other ranks were awarded after the student had reached the level of “Master” since he/she had shown what was needed to prove all that is necessary to enhance and promote the art of mastering the Mind and Body and he had learned that “you can not grow until you are ready to learn more about what you had already Mastered”.
No other belt ranks are awarded nor recognized after Mastership except Grand Master level which is inherited. Our Grand Master Simon retired in 2005.
“As founder of Academy of Temple Kung Fu dba Innerfit, an independent organization and affiliated with our Canadian schools, we focus on training of mind and body and have dedicated our efforts to transforming lives knowing that the students’ views of all aspects of their lives will be substituted for better through this process.
Change How You Look At Things and Things Will Change is the simple truth that can only be accomplished when the self confidence is regained to have the courage to face the events in our lives.” – Master Alex
