Counter Tips

Shen can be interrupted while channeling his ultimate, preventing him to teleport to his ally. Try laning against him with a champion with a disable.
If playing against a Shen after level 6, always be cautious of fighting because the Shen will make a 1v1 become a 1v2, or 2v2 become a 2v3.
Try to juke Shen's taunt. This will give him a harder time to stick onto his targets.
