A documentary which tells the life story and showcases the stunning martial arts skills of 86 year old Abbot Hai Teng of the Shaolin Temple.
For all those interested in Kung Fu, this is one film that shouldn't be left off the list. Shaolin Abbot Hai Teng's power and skill is unparalleled and one must see it to believe it. At 86 years old, Abbot Hai Teng is as agile, flexible, and strong as a 26 year old. Using the secret Shaolin "one-finger form" of Kung Fu, Abbot Hai Teng can stand on the index finger of one hand--even as an octagenarian.
Although this documentary includes only 11 minutes of Jet Li footage (and if you've seen "Dragons of the Orient," you've already seen all of it), the rare look into the life of so fascinating a man as Abbot Hai Teng is worth your time.
