“Shaolin has given me a way to focus. As a child I grew up with a lot of anger I didn’t know what to do with. When I learned how to manage it, I did it primarily by becoming passive. Shaolin is a way for me to instead have assertive energy in a positive manner, which has allowed me to harness what would have been simply destructive otherwise. In effect, Shaolin has given me not only physical fitness, but spiritual fitness as well.” – Connor Jensen
