5.0 out of 5 stars Simply outstanding, February 11, 2002
This review is from: Shaolin: Wheel of Life (DVD)
We've become so accustomed to martial arts being a sport here
in the United States that even a casual review of the Monks
DVD will reveal significant differences. In China, it is a way
of life. From youth through adulthood, one is immersed in the
training, breaths and lives the art. Neuromuscular control,
mental discipline, and absorbing the philosophy of martial arts
is paramount. Only under this lifelong training and environment
does one achieve perfection. The Shaolin epitomizes this per-
fection in every sense.
If one is at all interested in the differences in style and
training between the Western world versus that of the China,
the first several minutes will leave you in awe. You'll be
left spellbound at the mastery of the art, the variations-on-
a-theme of the Chinese martial arts. You'll be left stunned.
When you've watched it all, you'll replay it for those moves
too fleeting to catch the first time around.
The only thing better is to watch them in person. You will
float out of the performance....transcended.
