Representing over a thousand years of Chinese martial arts culture, direct from the People’s Republic of China, the SHAOLIN WARRIORS, in a spectacle of artistry, grace and perfection, return to the Marin Center on October 13th with an astonishing performance that will stun and delight audiences of all ages. The more than 20 Kung Fu masters, who have perfected the art of hand-to-hand and weapons combat, perform a dazzling Kung Fu theatrical display with the precision of Olympic gymnasts, the grace of ballet dancers and the magic of Cirque du Soleil.
In a fully choreographed theatrical production, the SHAOLIN WARRIORS bring the remarkable skill, stunning movement and spectacular imagery of Kung Fu to stages throughout the world. Performed by disciples of the Shaolin schools, the troupe is known throughout the world for their disciplined and deadly martial-arts prowess.

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.
