Master Shifu is the current master of the Jade Palace and a highly skilled master of kung fu taught by Oogway. Shifu would raise his first student, Tai Lung, believing he could become the legendary Dragon Warrior. Following Tai Lung's betrayal after Oogway deemed him unworthy of owning the Dragon Scroll, Shifu would become the instructor of the Furious Five, and later, reluctantly, Po.
