Kungfu Monk Corps’s predecessor is Shaolin Temple Warrior Monks. After the founding of People’s Republic of China, Shaolin Temple established Shaolin Wushu Team in 1987 in order to inherit and promote the time-honored Shaolin Kungfu. Later in 1989, it was renamed Shaolin Kungfu Monk Corps. Kungfu Monk Corps follows the historical pattern of Shaolin warrior monks, only that its function has turned into performing Shaolin Kungfu to the aim of spreading traditional Kungfu as well as authentic Shaolin Chan culture. So far, Kungfu Monk Corps has performed Kungfu demonstrations in over sixty countries and areas.
