Wudang Daoist Traditional Kung Fu and Internal Arts Teacher
Fatih Turan has a unique cultural heritage, as he was born in Turkey and grew up in Germany. He began his spiritual path at the early age of 12, through the practices of Kung Fu, Qigong and Tai Chi. Having trained with esteemed Kung Fu masters from throughout Asia, he became Kung Fu instructor by age 16. His initial desire to learn Martial Arts soon evolved into a lifestyle supporting the practice of Internal Arts and the development of a strong foundation in energy healing.
Fatih’s Turkish-Mongolian background has deep roots in Shamanism and Sufism; two very ancient practices that work with cosmic and earth energies to facilitate healing within the human body on multiple levels. His quest to learn more about the Internal Arts and his ancestry drew him to the famous Wudang Mountains of Central China in 2006, where he lived and studied with Taoist Monks in their monastery. This intensive experience greatly expanded and clarified his understanding of life and healing from an energetic viewpoint.
In 2007, Fatih crossed the globe to Vancouver, BC, to pursue full-time studies in another passion of his, acting. After graduating with his diploma from VanArts, he was offered a job as a Martial Arts Instructor and decided to stay in Kitsilano.
