Seven Years in Shaolin

Postby kirtu » Tue Jul 24, 2012 6:33 pm

Again from the Dutch Buddhist Broadcasting Foundation "Seven Years in Shaolin" a video about the life of a German Buddhist and martial arts student studying at the famed Shaolin Monastery. This is a totally different view of Shaolin than is sometimes seen during their wushu tours.

However except for a street session teaching kids "How are you?" the video has no English, is about 60% German 40% Chinese, subtitled in Dutch. If you understand German his German is very clear, not dialect. There may be an English version of this video somewhere as well because I know I've seen this on US TV.

I hope it is soon available on UK channels. :)

We have a teacher locally who is also a serious student there:
