    There's a long history of kung fu done for performance in similar venues. The history of Wing Chun inevitably brings us back to the Red Junk Opera Companies, and well before that Marco Polo describes that Kublai Khan had martial arts performed together with acrobatics at imperial banquets. Oh, and then does anybody remember the name of that funny kung fu movie/porn where these guys have a sort of traveling-circus where they take on challengers until they meet this women that wears them down. I've got it somewhere in a banker's box of old VHS tapes...
