The Middle East Cooperation started officially in June 2018 when Shifu Emad El-Sherbiny has been entrusted to represent Songshan Shaolin Traditional Wushu Academy in the following countries of the Middle East: Egypt, Bahrain, Iran, Irak, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Northern Cyprus, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and Yemen.

For the same countries, Shifu El-Sherbiny will also represent the International Meihua Quan Federation. The cooperation will be for spreading the Traditional Chinese Kung Fu and its culture in the forms of courses, seminars, coach certification, competitions and retreats for health and longevity. With our permission, Shifu Emad El-Sherbiny will promote the Culture of Shaolin and Meihua Quan and when organized events, will second a Shifu send from our organizations to teach the specific course.

Shifu Emad trained under Shifu Yanjun in the Shaolin Temple Kunming and based on his previous expereicne as a coach, he also received a coach certification from Songshan Shaolin Traditional Wushu Academy and a certification form the Sholin Temple Kunming.

After graduating from the Shaolin Temple Kunming, we had great news that Shifu Emad El-Sherbiny took part in the examination for Shaolin Duanwei in Dengfeng and achieve the 6 Duan. We would like to congratulate Shifu Emad for such achievement.

We have full trust that Shifu Emad will follow the path of Shaolin Culture and will also embrace the Culture of Meihua Quan which is a style not so known at present in Middle East. However, through Shifu Emad’s hard work and love for Kung Fu, more and more students can find also the benefits of this very old and traditional style.

We hope for a great cooperation in the Middle East. For schools and associations which wish to also communicate directly with us, please feel free to contact us.
