Shaolin Festival In Los Angeles Chinatown

12:28 AM

LA Chinatown Business Improvement District brings 1500 years of Shaolin Temple's cultural heritage to Los Angeles in celebration of Shaolin Temple Day LA on March 19.

Twelve years ago, the California State Assembly proclaimed March 21, 2004 as China Songshan Shaolin Temple Day.

A full zodiac cycle later, Los Angeles Chinatown commemorates the special day with an evening of Shaolin martial arts, meditation studies, cultural workshops, and vegetarian cuisine showcases.

The festival will showcase the four pillars of Shaolin teachings - the study of Zen Buddhism, Martial Arts, Wellness and Medicine and Classic Arts. Shaolin Masters will perform the highest levels of Kung Fu and offer group lessons of basic forms to the public.

Attendees will have the opportunity to join workshops in meditation, Traditional Chinese Medicine and therapy, and try their hand at the classic Chinese art of calligraphy.

Curious attendees can even experience a day in the life of a Shaolin warrior monk by participating in a traditional training drill and sampling vegetarian cuisine.
