training of Chinese soldiers.From this beginning, Chinese martial arts proceeded to incorporate different philosophies and ideas into its practice---expanding its purpose from self-defense to health maintenance and finally as method of self-cultivation.

The Kung Fu show in Beijing is daily at the Red Theater from 7:30pm to 8:45pm. Tickets booking is better in advance - either from your Beijing travel agency or to buy from the box office when you arrive at the theater. The kung fu show tells a story about a young boy becoming a Martial Art master. And the show is in English!
