Ok, these pictures are always impressive and whatnot. But when it comes down to real fighting shaolin monks are pussies, they act arrogant and get their asses kicked. The modern world has made them believe they are almost jedis because we see this stupid acts like breaking planks of wood with their faces. Pure BS
Yi Long is not a real shaolin monk, that’s just a promotional gimmick. Real monks wouldn’t take part in mma fights. I’m not saying they would be good in these fights, since their main purpose for training now is to preserve an ancient art form rather than to practice any practical combative techniques. Why do we still have artists that paint when there’s digital cameras that can take real pictures? It’s just to preserve a cultural part of humanity’s history.
Although if you were an average guy and not a trained fighter, I’m sure a shaolin monk would take you out with ease.
