Editorial Reviews

The monks of the Shaolin temple in Northern China were legendary for their great boxing ability and physical prowess. They became experts in body development, health, movement and fighting by carefully studying the grace and power of animals in nature. They found that complete physical fitness required stretching, breathing, isometrics, body awareness and sensitivity, balance and coordination. By combining these qualities into basic movements, the efficiency and effectiveness of exercising increases ten fold. In this extraordinary program, David Carradine (/Kill Bill/, TV s / Kung Fu /) presents a complete fitness program based upon the natural, simple and graceful movements of the Shaolin Five Animals. It incorporates the secrets of the Shaolin Boxers into a cardio workout routine that thoroughly strengthens, stretches and energizes the entire body. David Carradine s Shaolin Cardio Kick Boxing Workout will build your flexibility, endurance and power in ways you never thought possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Workout January 27, 2013
Verified Purchase
This work out surprised me quite a bit. My husband bought it and I thought that it was going to be super easy because the movements are not all fast. It starts out with stretching and then leads you through a series of kicks and combos. Depending on how much you put into it is how much you get out of it, but it turned out to be one heck of a workout. I was surprised at how much I was sweating! Plus it has so many stretches and breathing in it I feel like a million bucks afterword! I wouldn't recommend this as your only workout, but it is a great one to add to your collection for a balanced workout!

"David Carradine's Shaolin Cardio Kick Boxing" DVD will appeal to those who are fans of the late actor, and it provides a simple workout that if it gets people off the couch and exercising a bit, will prove productive.

There is a very short introduction by David Carradine, stating that this workout has helped him throughout the years. Then the DVD shows Carradine, dressed in an orange robe with black sash, and four younger models dressed in black pants and tank tops, going trough the routine in a studio. These four follow Carradine as he goes through the workout. There is a voice over of Carradine's voice guiding the viewer rather than Carradine talking as he performs.

The first part consists of a variety of stretches done at a slow and easy pace. This portion of the DVD lasts about fourteen and a half minutes. Then there is a quick pause and all of the people have chairs beside them. (So have your chair ready) They continue to do some stretches and basic kicks holding onto the chair for balance. (Front, side, roundhouse, and back kicks are done holding the chair. Personally, I'd have liked to have seen some instruction on how to perform the kicks correctly, since many people watching might not know how to do so.)

At the twenty-three minute mark, after the kicks, the chairs disappear and the program moves into punching. They do some basic punches, but if the person doing them gets into a lower horse stance like a couple of the models, the legs will get some work. They also do some "snake" type moves that are well, um, okay. If it gets a person moving, that's good. The program ends with some arm movements and breathing. The program finishes at the thirty-eight minute mark.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Great Video! July 26, 2012
By Alma
Shaolin by David Carradine is great because its so slow with the movements that it almost just puts you in this meditative state. I really enjoyed this video and its a great short workout for the day! Im going to start adding some yoga before or after just to give myself a good balancing workout. Shaolin is amazing!
