The Shaolin Monks return to perform, teach at Stanford

On Friday, Sept. 18, at noon, the world-famous Shaolin Monks will return to demonstrate their kung fu and qigong skills on the lawn on Campus Drive West between the Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge and the Clark Center. In addition to the performance by the monks, who hail from China’s Shaolin Temple, students who have taken the Shaolin Kung Fu class through the Health Improvement Program will perform. There also will be a free short class for anyone who would like to join in at the end of the hour.
