    I would apply for the job. I always wanted to play a really bad bad guy, being seen as a hated westerner who pumped their culture full of opium and raped their women. yeah the chinese people would hate my character and let me play other bad guys and such too maybe.

    monk or chuck

    I'm not that into reality TV, but I think I'd rather watch this Shaolin show than Chuck Norris' reality TV show . At least Shaolin is inviting everyone, regardless of nationality, etc. I don't think Chuck will invite the rest of the world beyond America.

    More Shaolin in the news

    This is somewhat related to the initial post, so I thought I'd post it here.

    Legends of Monk Warriors from Shaolin Temple

    There's been some buzz about the reality show/contest/movie project lately and I realize that we haven't posted it here yet. Here's some new articles. We've just talked to Fu Min about it a little. More to come, I'm sure...

    Sina News
    CBC news
    People's Daily
    The Buddhist channel

    There's more if you surf around. Xinhua has posted more in Chinese apparently...

    CBS Story on Kung Fu Idol

    I recently saw a news clip about the TV series being discussed:

    Go to: http://cbs5.com/video/
    Then: Search for "kung fu"

    Get past the of the weather and Apple's anniversary; then you get news regarding TV series on Shaolin Kung-Fu Star. Feel free to watch the clip on "9-to-5", if you happen to be a Dolly Parton fan.

    maybe we can get some of the folks in china to youtube a couple of segments so we can watch in awe... or with bemusement, depending.
    Kung Fu is good for you.

    Talking

    it might be good especially if they focus on compettitive wushu cos alot of people just do it in gym class there so they will have alot of talent to choose from
    there are only masters where there are slaves

    Shaolin idol

    We've discussed this project somewhat before as it has evolved. It's been very confusing because the story has been changing on what will actually happen. Such is the nature of Shaolin and Chinese TV, I suppose. All things are impermanent.

    We were contacted some time ago about hosting/promoting the American audition/tournament. It sounded like too much work and investment for us, besides we have our own tournament project this year, the Tiger Claw Elite Championships in cooperation with Disney, so we opted to decline. As much as we would have liked to participate, our 2006 plate is already too full. The KSTAR Shaolin Temple Event has been taken up by the Piacente Group/IronPond Entertainment. They have contacted us recently too. One of their top people worked with us before producing 2001 U.S. Open Kuoshu/Martial Arts Championships & 2nd International. So we are trying to help them promote the U.S. audition/qualifier. Consequently, I should have more information for you all shortly about this. The qualifier is coming up really soon. Here's the press release so far:

    First International Kung Fu Star Reality Show Competition
    IronPond Entertainment/Shaolin Temple Comm. Co
    Televised Competition
    July 7-8, 2006
    Los Angeles, CA

    The competition will gather up and coming male kung-fu/wushu artists to compete on television to showcase the culture, spirit, artistry of this 5000 year old competitive sport. 100 competitors will perform their choice of open hand form, weapon, or two-man set not longer than two minutes. This First International Reality TV Show Kung Fu Competition hopes to yield the next male kung-fu star of the world. Three distinguised judges from China and a studio audience will determine top finalists who will receive all expense paid trip to Shaolin Temple for filming of finals and training. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity!

    Awards ceremony hosted in Hollywood, will include VIP's and movie industry martial arts leaders, media, and guests.

    No fee to apply. Apply by June 12,2006 Applications open to Males 18 and older with a minimum of four years of Chinese martial arts experience are eligible to register. Limited to 100, so apply immediately!

    I got a chance to meet with the Monk responsible for the US promotions last night at my school. One of my students is handling some of the legal aspects of the show and it seems I have become involved in the project on a peripheral level. I just happen to have the most recent press release for this as well as a K-star t-shirt and cool Shaolin prayer beads in their own "Shaolin Brand" logo'd bag. When I get a chance I will send the press release.
