Shaolin Warriors will bring more than a 1,000 years of Chinese martial arts culture to the stage at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 6, at the Weis Center for the Performing Arts. The Family Discovery Series performance is suggested for ages 5 and above. The performance is 100 minutes plus a 20-minute intermission.

In this fully choreographed stage production, Shaolin Warriors brings the remarkable skill, stunning artistry and death-defying martial-arts prowess of more than 20 Kung Fu masters to stages throughout the world.

Beginning at a young age, the Kung Fu masters are trained in mental and physical disciplines, perfecting the art of hand-to-hand and weapons combat, which allows them to perform unbelievable feats of athleticism that only seem possible in the movies. The production features many forms of Shaolin Kung Fu as well as a look at the daily life of the warriors and their Zen philosophy.

About the show
Direct from China, the legendary Shaolin Warriors will triumphantly return to the world with a brand new image. "Shaolin Warriors: The Legend Continues," an upgraded version produced in 2016, highlights thrilling martial arts prowess alongside enlightening Zen. A strength-through-adversity story is told in this breathtaking extravaganza following the journey from two children's initiation into a historical monastery to achieving full-fledged warrior status.

Since its original version was produced in 2000, Shaolin Warriors has held millions of audiences around the world gasping in disbelief at the awe-inspiring demonstrations of hypnotic and death defying feats — from the unmatched ensemble synchronization to the proficiency in the disciplined use of 18 traditional weapons.
