CaptionJuly 14 - August 5. Monks of the Shaolin temple now teach their particular form of Kung Fu ('wushu', or war art) in schools, and a large martial arts academy has opened beside their temple in response to growing public interest in the tradition. Since 1990 wushu has been an official medal event in the Asian Games, and there is a bid for it to be included in the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. Two other martial arts, taekwondo and judo, already feature in the Olympics.
