Kung Fu Quest is a show which aired in march 2011. The show is great for any martial arts enthusiast interested in learning a little about Chinese Martial Arts. Every episode you will be lead by one of seven host who travel through out China in search of Martial art Masters of different styles of Kung-Fu Wu-Shu. The first episode takes a look at Wudang. You get an inside look at some of their training and life style at the temple.
All the host have some martial arts experience and go to train and learn a little about the specific art of that current episode. You learn a little about the history and basic training regimes of the respective art. Over all I think it is a great show to watch. I myself knowing about the history of specific arts will say to take what they say with a grain of salt. Many systems have many tall tails about the origins of there art which may not be entirely true. Many legends really have no historic evidence to back up the claims. None the less they are great stories which I love to hear. If you haven't seen this tv series check it out. It is on National Geographic.
You can watch it on tv on the National Geographic channel or online.
