    I recommend Shaolin Warriors

    Got a chance to see the Shaolin Warriors show in Tempe last night, it was really good.

    The story line was a little lost on me, I would not have followed it at all if not for being clued in by KFQ.

    The performance was great, especially the kids. I was interested to see the different animal styles; I hadn't seen toad, scorpion or crane before. The weapons were also cool, double chain whip getting the most oohs and aahs.

    The music was a little cheesy, worthy of Ennio Morricone, but not too distracting. My wife objected to the obvious choreography of the fighting scenes but that didn't bother me too much.

    Lastly I saw quite a few moves that I also practice in my Wushu training. I believe that this ties in with the discussions about what Shoalin is "selling" for lack of a better word.

    Just thought I'd open up debate on whether the show is really contemporary Wushu, or whether Wushu got it's moves from Shaolin.

    I don't mean to ruffle anyones feathers, just curious about others opinions and what they base them on.

    Shaolin Warriors

    Has anyone seen Shaolin Warriors? I am assuming that it will be mostly wushu, I was however hoping to see a qigong demo with it. Any comments?

    Did you hear more on that school in Chicago at the Shaolin Warriors show?

    NP... Sorry, my school was supposed to open for them with a Lion Dance. But they would not let us in becase of a school in Chicago started a fight with another school and the monks!!!

    shaolin warriors

    I met these guys when they came through Toronto.

    All young guys from the Shaolin village. And yes, the performances were pretty much competition wu shu style routines.
    Still, highly entertaining.

    I got some pics of the guys, I put one up at my site. Take a look and see if you recognize any of these guys.

    no confirmation on Chicago yet

    Does anyone have the program from the most recent tour? I have the program for the 2000 tour and interestingly enough, only one performer used a monk name.

    That's Shi for a fully indoctrinated monk

    But some just use the generation names and drop the Shi, in which case it might be de, xing, yong, yan, heng, & miao.

    ok, there is a fully indoctrinated monk among them, one Shi Jianjun.

    the rest are:
    Chen Fei, Chen Haiyang, Gao Haibo, gong yong feng, Li Shiqing, Liu Biao, liu Chuankuo, liu quanzhi, liu wei, luomingjian, ma taichang, meng xu, sun keyuan, wang wei, wu shangwei, wu xinbo, xu ligong, xu pengjun, yang bin, zhang daoyou, zhang guicai, zhang yonggheng and zhao yulong.

    these are just the performers from that tour and not the production team members or the creative team et al.

    peace

    Right, I think he was the same one as in 2000

    He's a disciple of Abbot Shi Yongxin and the head master of all the other students, yes?

    Shaolin Warriors

    was entertaining, was interesting but , did not blow me away. I guess it was more to introduce the general public to shaolin rather than to satisfy hardcore enthusiasts. Has anyone else watched it? What are your thoughts.
