He began to practice with his father when he was a child. Like many others, the movie Shao Lin Si (Shaolin Temple) impressed him a lot. His father decided to take him to the Shaolin Temple to learn a few techniques of Shaolin Gong Fu but destiny of young Qing Hua was also devoted to Buddhism.

At fifteen, his love for martial arts became a passion for Shaolin and he was accepted at the Monastery as a disciple. He studied Buddhism and martial art techniques of Shaolin Gong Fu during three years and became officially disciple of Master Shi Yong Xin. In 1988, he became officially monk and received the name of Shi Yan Lu.

In 2003, his Shifu officially named him Master instructor of the Warrior Monks of Shaolin (Wu Seng), The highest recognition for a monk in Shaolin. He is the manager of the external schools of the Temple (there are only three).
