Kung Fu Fighting

On my visit to Shaolin Temple in China last month, I had the chance to watch a Kung Fu performance since the Shaolin Temple is known as the birthplace of the martial art. The performance was really cool at times.

However, much of it was really cheesy and touristy, which cheapened the whole experience. For instance, the show would be stopped at times to try to get people in the crowd to buy things or pay for pictures with a Shaolin Monk.

This guy did a handstand on four fingers. I guess that would be called a fingerstand.
