Sifu Steven Baugh, founder, director, and master instructor of the Lohan School, comes from South Central Los Angeles and is a Native American (Cheyenne) and Mexican Indian (Tarascan). Learning all forms of martial arts became his total focus and dedication due to growing up in a very poor and violent environment. Sifu’s destiny and fortune was to be taught by some of the most famous teachers on the West Coast. Although there were many teachers he studied with and was certified by the following sifus and masters (most of whom left China before the communist takeover), they have become the most influential in his life, in mind, body and spirit. To these great teachers, he and his students of the Lohan Temple owe their sincerest gratitude.
