Chinese Yoga from Tai Chi Youth This Chinese Yoga™ program was created by Richard Del Connor, "Buddha Zhen," in 1984 for all of the Shaolin Chi Mantis™ Kung Fu and Tai Chi programs taught since then. This is the first time students can learn and experience the health and well-being of Shaolin Kung Fu without participating in the martial arts training of Shaolin Kung Fu.
