Shifu Paula Lazarz has been practicing Shaolin Kung Fu for the past twenty-six years and has been teaching on a daily basis for the past 23. Inspired by the original TV show Kung Fu, she began her study of martial arts to build confidence and increase her own awareness of practical self-defense. She earned her Black Sash under Master Andrew Lee within the Shaolin Quan Fa system established in Chicago by Grandmaster Tsai. She has competed both locally and nationally and was a NBL regional forms champion in 2003. Master Paula holds a 6th-Degree Black Sash in Tsai's Shaolin Quan Fa. Her practice includes 23 years of Qigong training along with 18 years of Tai Chi.
