ShAOLIN Yan Chong 少林延冲

Abbot Shi Yong Xin gave Cheng Min Mao the religious name Shi Yan Chong. Since 2002, Shi Yan Chong was made coach of the Shaolin martial arts demonstration team and toured North America, Europe, Australia and South East Asia for the team's stage presentation "Shaolin Warriors".  He has visited more than thirty countries for cultural exchange in Shaolin Kung Fu and Chan Buddhism. These countries include U.S.A., Germany, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Taiwan, and Hong Kong to name a few.

武僧教头释延冲师傅自幼热爱少林功夫,祖籍山东乃中国著名武术之乡,当地民风古朴尚武,九岁起就随著名拳师马建信和安徽省体委教练张祚川习武。当时由一部武打明星李连杰主演的电影(少林寺),在80年代风靡全国,亦掀起了一股功夫热潮,全国各地想到少林寺学习少林功夫的少年不少 ,但能过留下来的却寥寥无几。释延冲凭着这股热爱少林功夫的诚心,1996 年进入少林寺,之后归依方丈释永信大和尚门下,赐法名:释延冲,成为少林寺第三十四代弟子。经过数10年苦练和师父的严加教导,现对少林传统拳法﹑气功﹑养生功等尤为精通。并在2002年担任少林寺武僧团教练,曾带团参加中国对外演出公司摄制的大型舞台剧“少林雄风” 在北美﹑欧洲﹑澳洲和东南亚地区巡回演出。为弘扬中国少林功夫曾走访过30多个国家和地区,进行文化交流与禅武教学。 2006年由中国嵩山少林寺方丈释永信亲自授权武僧释延冲,代表少林寺在多伦多成立唯一的“少林寺文化中心”,为弘扬中国千年的少林禅武文化发展至今。

少林功夫已经从一个寺院的看家绝活,发展成为全球性的民俗文化。尤其在当代世界一体化的过程中,在多元文化格局背景下,少林功夫已经成为中华传统文化最通俗的表述,成为跨民族﹑跨国界﹑甚至跨信仰的文化凝聚力的重要支点,在世界上发挥着独特的文化功能。

随着国际文化交流的频繁,少林寺武僧释延冲做为传播少林文化友好使者之一。使少林功夫这一灿烂瑰宝,造福与加拿大的人民。将用毕生精力向全世界推广和弘扬中国少林文化,从而促进世界和平。
