The boyfriend and I saw the Shaolin Warriors perform at the Orpheum Theater this past Saturday. Very random, but totally cool. The show was a little more theatrical than I had hoped for, but I didn't really expect to be seeing challenge matches and actual fighting. Seriously though, what better way to spend a Saturday night thatn watching a bunch of Buddhist Monks doing kick-ass kung fu? I can't think of one!
The inspiration behind us going was the book American Shaolin: Flying Kicks, Buddhist Monks, and the Legend of Iron Crotch, by Matthew Polly. We both tore through the book when we read it, and I'm pretty certain that just about anyone will enjoy reading it!
