A must see if you are a martial arts lover. Beautifully performed with story telling and Kung Fu. Lot of entertainment before the show as well.

A bit of martial arts, a simple story-line, some acrobatic feats, and a group of very fit Shaolin monks make for an entertaining show. I wanted to see this because of my interest in martial arts, but most of our group know nothing about kung fu and thoroughly enjoyed the show. Two 75 minute performances each evening. Worth a visit.

The show is entertaining and in English. If you are trying to see real Kung Fu, then this is probably not for you. This is more a theatrical performance to demonstrate the story of Kung Fu and its various forms. The issue is that you do not know if the performers are actually performing Kung Fu or a bit of...

You tend to get caught up in the whole tourist cycle, as it's often easier when travelling with kids...Great Wall...Summer Palace...Forbidden City...Kung Fu show. Whilst we knew what to expect with the other sites, my husband and I were sceptical of the show, and for 280RMB each (kids and adults), you feel a bit ripped. However, it was really quite... More

I went there at a friday at the 17:15 show; to order a ticket via email is very easy ( normally this is very complicated in Beijing). The show wasn' t fully booked. The show was really good; more a kind of movie story than a show off of material arts.. I liked it very much! They put many efforts... More

The Kung Fu show takes place at the red Theatre. was a really good show & explains the devotion & skills required to become a Kung Fu master. Even the small children in the show had excellent skills. We had 1 hour before the show so there are many places to the right of the theatre if your facing the... More

Really entertaining show that was high energy and full of great effects. Surprisingly ironic that the narrator spoke in English and there was Chinese subtitles. Definitely worth seeing.
