Watching Hundreds of Shaolin Fighters in Unison is Hypnotic
Kunfu Academy in China regularly features hundreds of Shaolin fighters in unison, completing some extraordinary routines.
We cover a lot of paranormal stuff here at DBP. This video doesn’t quite fall into that category, but if you didn’t know any of the context you’d be forgiven for thinking so.
The clip below was taken at the Kunfu Academy in China, which is an offshoot of the original, famed Shaolin Temple. The students are all part of the Tagou Martial Arts School, one of the largest and most prestigious martial arts academies in the world.
Students there spend years practicing and learning a variety of martial arts styles, including the famed shaolin wushu. But while the individual style is what makes the practitioners so formidable, it is only one part of what they do.
Another part is routine. Strict, precise, intense routine.
The clip below features hundreds of students practicing a routine and putting on a show for the people in attendance. It is hypnotic to watch. It almost looks unreal, but more than that it is somewhat humbling. The precision each and every student shows borders on unreal. It kind of makes the 10 minutes on the treadmill seem a little lacking.
The clip comes from Gissel Elizabeth Reyes, a tourist that happened to be in the right place at the right time. The students do this somewhat often, and it is always impressive.
