I found this video on vimeo that deftly shows what it is like to train at the Tiangmenshan Shaolin Kung Fu Academy in China.  To even get to this level of training takes years because there is so much prepatory work that needs to be done.  Obviously this guy is living it and it gives us just a peek at what it would be like to devote ourselves to something for even the shortest period of time.  Enjoy! https://vimeo.com/88630748
