Not everybody is a suitable candidate to be a Shaolin Monk. In fact, the best candidate is one that has been already training in martial arts for at least 20 years. Only then Shi Yan'ao's teachings can be passed little by little to his students.

The passion and determination of the students and monks really show when we consider what skills they end up developing. The video shows some of the most incredible exercises that these amazing athletes practice daily and what they are really able to do. It seems like nothing can stop these warriors, even the laws of nature. Can you believe that?
