We weren't disappointed that we took the time to see this show. It was nice but nothing amazing. Just ok.

If you are in Beijing and you have a time to see this show then you have to go. It's pretty impressive - especially the skill of performers. Besides that it's goot to see this show before going to the Shaolin Temple because i believe that thanks to it I was able to "try" to understand the kung-fu ideology better.... More

If you can go to one show in Beijing go to this one. Although it may seen kitch at first with the English voice overs the incredible acrobatics, Kung Fu, light effects, scenery and slick professional performance make it worth it. The theatre itself is beautiful. And ladies you'll never have seen so many 6 packs!

Energetic dancers and acrobats showing off their skills, follows a story line. Theater staff are strict, must stick to your seat number! Show is 1 hour long. Try to book your tickets through your tour guide, they might be able to get a deal. I paid 150 yuan. Worth seeing this show.

I was in Bejing with my Kung Fu group and to watch that show was so motivating, inspiring and incredible. The show was not at all touristy like the other shows we observed throughout China. I enjoyed the entire show: how it was presented, how it was put together- there was graceful dancing and acrobatic movements along with authentic Kung... More

I am not sure what to add next to all comments before mine. The show was really good, it was represented as a story about a boy who was left by his mother.

If you are going to Beijing with kids or teens, the Kung Fu show is a great time. The show is beautifully choreographed and I was pleasantly surprised by the story line (I thought that it would mostly just be on stage fighting -- though there is no shortage of that either). Our 13 year old son really enjoyed it.... More

interesting concept and well produced. kids will enjoy it. about 1-1.5 hours, so manageable length of show. not much to do around in the area, so plan accordingly. theater is quite small and doesn't get too crazy during the show time, so plan accordingly.
