Shaolin Monk Shi Yan Ming 2003

Martial Art World host George Strickland interviewed the famous Shaolin monk Shi Yan Ming at his old school on Broadway in the Noho neighborhood of Manhattan. Shifu Ming has since moved his school, USA Shaolin Temple, downtown to the Soho district.

The Shaolin monks are famous worldwide for their Kung-fu. But there are now fears that their fame is corrupting their ancient Xen Buddhist traditions. ''They try to trick you and get as much money as possible''. says one German student. In every surrounding village there are schools and tourist traps cashing in on their celebrity.
