The Shaolin Warriors At The Brooklyn Center For The Performing Arts


By Meredith Greene


If you like Jackie Chan movies, prepare to be amazed by the real thing at a live performance by The Shaolin Warriors on Sunday, November 25. Combining elements of Zen meditation with martial arts, these Shaolin Kung Fu masters cultivate focus and peace of mind as they deftly execute synchronized defensive fighting rituals. Bring your family to explore a day in the life of real Shaolin monks—and if you’re lucky, maybe your kids will take to long hours of silent meditation (but not the fighting rituals). From $15, 3pm. For tickets, please call 718-951-4500 (open Tuesday-Saturday, 1-6pm) or visit www.BrooklynCenterOnline.org.
