No problem. I just thought it might be fun to do before you get settled in to monastic life. It's a great atmosphere. :smile:

The first Shaolin temple the host visits is a fake like you said, but the 2nd temple he visits further out in the countryside seems legitimate (although I don't know this for a fact. Check with others who know more about China).

Besides kung fu, another option would be to enroll in a gym and take up boxing. Nobody thinks boxing is magic (unlike kung fu), but it builds character as well as muscles, and you'll make friends for life. (And probably break your nose, but everything has its price.) Fortunately, nobody ever asks whether this or that gym is an "authentic" representative of the boxing tradition!
