A total of 26,000 students showed off their excellent martial art skills in a spectacular performance on Wednesday in central China.
The young energetic students, donning red and black kung fu uniforms, put on an awe-inspiring performance of Shaolin kung fu, one of the oldest and most famous styles of Chinese martial arts.
The massive cadre of students were seen carrying out difficult acrobatic acts and organising themselves into different formations with their bodies – all completed in perfect unison and under a single command.
