This show is a mixture of martial arts, acrobatics and a story of the young Grasshopper who rises to become the leader of the Kung fu monks. It's very professional and my only criticism is that's it was too short. Unfortunately it was less than half full when we went so the applause was very muted. There a mix of... More

This show was recommended to us by our tour guide and we gladly agreed to go there as we were quite happy after watching Golden Mask show.However most of us were not pleased in the end as this show was suitable for fans of Chinese Martial arts.The story was about a little boy who becomes one day Kung Fu master....

Great show, lots of fun to watch, with a Broadway feel to it. It was designed by an American Broadway show producer, so the quality is excellent, while the story it tells is obviously a traditional Chinese Kung Fu story. We all enjoyed it, even though all of us were exhausted from sightseeing all day. It's a great finish for... More

This review has everything to do with expectations. I read the other reviews and understood I would not be seeing only staged combat... but that's pretty much all I came for. After the first 2/3 of the show passed and there was no actual use of Kung Fu, I was ready to give up. Finally they redeemed themselves, brought out... More

This was our 2nd choice entertainment while in Beijing (Golden Mask Dynasty Show is dark in January) but we were happy with our choice. I can't vouch for the authenticity of any of the feats performed, but this was an excellent showcase of several different styles of Chinese Martial Arts - very impressive to behold. The show also includes a... More

The show was true to traditions, energetic and mesmerizing. Surely something which represents China and can be enjoyed as a family or otherwise. The story of Chun YI was a great experience on the whole.

Amazing show, so much action. Extremely well rehearsed show no one put a foot wrong. Recommend trying to get a seat as close to the stage as possible, however all the seats are good. They even offer photos with the actors after the show.

This show was all action and entertainment. Flying about, dancing, kung fu exhibitions, fans, tumbling, you name it they seemed to be doing it. It was worth the money and I enjoyed it.

Not really a Kung Fu show, it's more of a play. There is some kung fu in it, but it is not like watching the Shaolin monk show. It's more of a story but with some showy bits like smashing wood on themselves..

We went to see this show. My rating: 6/10 stars Beware: Don't buy VIP - seats aren't great. You get a banana and a small water and a little pack of cookies. Don't buy the second high priced tickets. Seats aren't better!!! Buy the 3rd best tickets. You won't regret that choice. No pictures during the performance... but actually you... More
