“A Legend of Shaolin Kungfu” consists of 42 fascinating episodes lasting 60 minutes each, full of great Kungfu combats.

The art of Kungfu is today recognized as a symbol of Chinese culture, and a great showcase of this is “A Legend of Shaolin Kungfu.”
There is a temple called Shaolin in the deep mountains of Songshan, the place where this Chinese Kungfu originated. Shaolin Kungfu emerged some 1,500 years ago in a temple where a Buddhist named Zhiyuan lived, along with his six disciples, who were martial art experts, each a master of a unique Kungfu skill. Before becoming a monk, Zhiyuan was a military general, but when he rebelled against the cruelties of the Emperor, his entire family was assassinated. Fortunately, Zhiyuan was able to escape with daughter, Xiyue. Thus began his quest to save the people, fighting against the Emperor’s tyranny, aided by his expertise of Kungfu, and becoming, along with his daughter and disciples, great heroes.
“A Legend of Shaolin Kungfu” contains six captivating stories: “Rescue Common Girls,” “Fight the Bandits,” “Contend for the Kasaya,” “Grab the Treasure,” “The Love of the Princess,” and “The Revenge of the Prince.”
