Yi Long - "Shaolin Monk" Fight Record

Yi Long is a Chinese amateur fighter often promoted as a Shaolin Kung Fu monk by Wu Lin Feng (WLF), a martial arts competition organization. In the past, Yi Long was billed as the number one Shaolin Kung Fu monk.

Is he a Shaolin Monk?

On December 14, 2010, a spokesman of the Shaolin Temple claimed,

Yi Long, who was billed as the No. 1 Shaolin Kung Fu monk, is neither a Kung Fu monk of Shaolin Temple, nor could he be named as the No. 1 Shaolin Kung Fu monk at all.

IKF: Sets the Record Straight

In response to the YouTube video “Shaolin Monk KO’s US Navy SEAL’s Boxer IKF Champion” the International Kickboxing Federation responded for the record on August 17th 2012.

Shaolin monk KO US Navy SEAL Boxer-IKF Champion

“Neither fighter in the video is an IKF Champion (Of any kind or anything related to the IKF letters).”

“Neither fighter is a former Navy Seal.”

“It’s even in doubt whether the Chinese fighter, Yi Long is truly a ‘Shaolin Monk’…”

“The bout shown is an Amateur Bout between 2 AMATEUR Fighters, Shea Ealey (USA, 8-0 prior to this bout.) VS Yi Long (China, 17-0 prior to this bout.).”


At best, Yi Long is a Sanda guy who spent some time training at the Shaolin temple.

Nonetheless, Yi Long is a fun spectacle to watch. He uses the “Iron Chin” and “Qigong Iron Shirt” technique to fight in an aggressive manner. However, despite the hype, his “Iron Chin” is not invincible as he has been knocked out more than once.

Win/Loss Record?

Several videos are on YouTube promoting the “Shaolin Monk” vs multiple fight disciplines. They were entertaining, so I tried, and failed, to find Yi Long’s fight record. He is not a professional fighter, and his amateur career has been obfuscated to better promote him.

As a result, YouTube was searched and a fight history was compiled.

Yi Long a Master of the Homer Simpson Fighting Style

Yi Long can absorb severe punishment. Like Homer Simpson, he chooses to stand still in the ring and let his opponents exhaust themselves trying to knock him out!
