Monks in St. Petersburg's Ice Palace.

monks Monks of Chinese monastery Shao Ling showed their skills in St. Petersburg's Ice Palace. Most of the show's participants are 19-22 years old. They used both sham and real weapons. Unfortunately, our idea of Eastern martial art is often connected with Hollywood stars. But they show only part of the general training, for Eastern combats are first of all philosophy of spirit.
