The DVD release of "Shaolin: Wheel of Life" will give everyone the opportunity to see the stage performance featuring the martial arts and acrobatic skills of the troupe. The music and songs are dramatic, and stage and lighting impressive. The performers are 40 ordained Buddhist monks from the Shaolin Temple in China.
The 84 minute performance (2000) will keep Shaolin martial arts fans enthralled. Be sure to view the trailers on the video.
A couple of books I have enjoyed reading lately about the Shaolin arts have been:
