Sam Lin

about Sifu Shuhan (Sam) Lin

Sifu Shuhan Lin began practice Southern Shaolin kung fu at a very young age. From 1968 to 1989, he learned Tai Chi, Lingyi, Bagu, and other Fu style kung fu from Master Xu Qin Shen in China.  Master Xu was a student of grand master Fu Zheng Song. In 1989, Sifu Lin came to the United States to work for the University of Missouri – St Louis (UMSL) in the physics department. In 1992, He and Dr. Ginger (Xinsheng Jiang) opened the first Chinese herbal medicine pharmacy and clinic (Oriental Ginseng and Gifts) in St Louis. Sifu Lin learned his Chinese medicine from his father and grandfather in his home town, Chaozhou, China. He has been teaching Tai chi outside his herbal medicine clinic from 1992 until it was sold in 2011. He also taught the Tai Chi Group in UMSL from 2002 until his retirement in 2011.  Sifu Lin participated regularly in the local Tai Chi events such as world Taiji Day and Multiculture Awareness Day. He also can read, write, and speak proficiently in Mandarin and Cantonese Chinese.
