The Shaolin Temple is often considered to be the birthplace of martial arts, particularly the art of kung fu. In this book I share my photographs and daily journal from my trip to China in 2008. I toured through several cities in China on my way to the Shaolin Temple to see for my self the historic temple and train kung fu in this very inspirational place. This book contains over 300 photographs from cities such as Beijing and Xi'An. The photographs capture the beauty and mystery of such tourist sites as the Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City and the Terra-Cotta Warriors.
