Shaolin Kung Fu Training Books & DVDs
Ever since David Carradine’s genre-defining portrayal of a Shaolin priest in Kung Fu: The Legend Continues, the Shaolin monks and their seemingly mystical arts have enchanted Westerners. From the high-flying characters of Mortal Kombat to the kung fu ballads of the Wu Tang Clan, disciples of popular culture worship the Shaolin temple; even The Simpsons have paid tribute to these Buddhist monks and their gravity-defying feats of strength and balance.
According to legend, their most powerful warriors could punch holes through their opponents’ chests and block weapons with their bare arms. After undergoing the brutal training of their spiritual ancestors, some of the most talented monks travel the world together as performers, serving as ambassadors for their temple and homeland.
