Deadly art of Shaolin monks

Deadly art of Shaolin monks Featured

Airborne and dynamic, these impressive photographs reveal the dedication of young monks practising kung fu.

The acrobatic men are captured flying through the air performing a range of incredible stunts.

The robed monks can be seen perfecting their martial art skills against the stunning backdrop of the Western Shaolin Temple in Zhongshan town, Chongqing, China.

While many may have heard about the country's famous Shaolin Temple in Zhengzhou, the western branch may be less well-known, but is equally stunning.

Breathtaking mountains rise high in the distance behind the ornate temple buildings that are brought to life with flags and colourful pillars.

Young children also learn the art at the impressive holy site and can be seen eagerly learning the craft behind the talented monks.
