For me, this show is the most impressive and most interesting in Shaolin temple. I really have a good time watching the show. However, you should come 20 minutes before the show begin and don't take a seat near aisle because after the show began...More

If you decide to watch the performance try to get a seat on the ground floor. I went immediately to the second floor thinking the viewing would be better but I think it was a lot worse due to the low hanging ceiling. The performance...More

Awesome to view and consider the age and passing of monks who have left their mark. Need to be able to climb stairs although none of them are long staircases.

This is serious. To see 40.000 of kung fu, teakwondo and other martial arts practisioners in place, is not easy elsewhere in the world. These kids get up 5.00 every morning and practise till late evening.
