Shaolin Monk Kungfu

This group of monks is well-known as a kind of resistance for Chinese rulers in the past. Shaolin Monk Kungfu may have been considered as the origins of all martial-arts in China, Japan, Korea and South East Asia. A group of monk warriors with good martial-art skills may not be such an effective and efficient resistance these days. Why not start to teach them how to use pistol, machine gun, grenade launcher, anti-tank rifle, etc...? No! Peace man, Buddha bless you.

I took these pictures from their performance at Te Papa last week.
