Shaolin Martial Arts in Tufnel Park, London

Today, I had the pleasure of visiting the Shaolin Temple in Tufnel Park, London, to watch demonstrations of the various forms and arts they teach. I’d be lying if I said I could remember everything they showed (there was a lot) and, to be honest, I’d probably get it...
