  • Time Shao Lin Jing-an introduction to tickets at no extra cost can be seen. Five times a day, once a 30-minute demonstration and. (Summer 7 times) 10:30, 11:30, 14:00, 15:00, 16:00 start. Lined up about 30 minutes later elsewhere, and like 14:00 times. Venue seats are quite often, audience, come many was that while it was occupied. Come early if you want to see in the front, and be lined up better. Time and high school young monks coming out about elementary school kids, Shaolin martial arts demonstrations began. Cute little Monk played Monkey Fist (Monkey Fist), my smile was spilt. Also, motion idea on the way from the audience up on stage 3 people who want to learn martial arts from the monks, to imitate, but foreigners participate, monk and difficult to mimic foreign or ludicrous moves, is pretty interesting. Location is near the scenic area, at the entrance, so nicely fit the time, watching the first, or else just good looks last.

  • 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. 
  • Entrance of Shaolin Temple and walking for a while, the gate of the temple, not has the martial arts museum. The Shao Lin Temple is famous for its martial arts it. Instead of waiting for it so hopefully timely admission to demonstration Wu show at the martial arts Hall in admission fees from seen. Terribly crowded, but there seems to not be prepared. I tried out was when we got to the front of martial arts, the show started 10 minutes ago. Can find fortunately seats sat, waited for a while beside or behind, of course until before! As it enters the other patrons, was disgusted. Martial arts show itself in about 30 minutes, were three-part show a quick demonstration, the crowd a few people to imitate, and show a little complicated by more than one name. I think and feel and show great if at best, it was a waste of time. Martial arts school had been done on the large playing field than the show at this demonstration of martial arts demonstration opposite? The training by the students of more interesting I thought. Had practice with various students of about 200 people.
