Sifu Randy Schultz has been involved within the computer industry for more than 30 years. Positions he has held range from Programmer/Analyst for a small department to Network Services Architect of a company of more than 10,000 employees. He is currently the Senior Systems Administrator for Earlham College where he helps maintain 2 data centers and assists students in learning the skills of system and network administration. Mr. Schultz considers his study of Shaolin kung fu to be a significant part of what he teaches others.
At a young age Sifu Schultz became interested in martial arts when he learned of the existence of the Shaolin philosophy through the television show, “Kung Fu”. He became fascinated by these teachings, including the concepts of inner peace and harmonizing with the world around us. In his college years, Mr. Schultz began researching and trying different types of martial arts including tae kwon do, kempo, ju jitsu, aikido and karate. It was not until he joined Meng’s Martial Arts in 2007 that he truly found the philosophy he was seeking.
In June of 2015 Mr. Schultz attained the rank of 1st degree blacksash. Then in July of the same year Mr. Schultz was certified as an instructor in the Shaolin Wing Chun 7 Skills Universe and granted Lohan status in the Shaolin Hung Lung Sin Fu Faat Mun Pai (empty dragon compassionate tiger system) by the Ving Tsun Museum.
Today, Sifu Schultz recognizes that the Shaolin philosophy is not a form of martial arts. Instead it is a lifestyle that assists with physical, emotional and mental growth. Currently a certified instructor at Meng’s of Richmond under the guiding hand of his sifu, Master Chango Noaks Sr., Mr. Schultz enjoys teaching others what he has learned.
