Shaolin Warriors

The Shaolin Warriors are more than peaceful, nonconfrontational bald guys in robes, as anyone who’s seen Bruce Lee’s Enter the Dragon knows. They can also kick some serious ass. The monks will be demonstrating their highly theatrical, choreographed moves — a cross between kung fu, gymnastics and break-dancing — in their Houston premiere today. Considered the kung fu masters of China, the Shaolin Warriors are known around the world for performing seemingly impossible feats of contortion, balance, speed and strength. They also display breathtaking synchronized fighting skills incorporating an array of weapons. In addition to today’s evening performance, warrior wannabes are invited to a free Master Class in martial arts, monk style, at the University of Houston this afternoon. Show 7:30 p.m. today and 2 p.m. tomorrow. Jones Hall, 615 Louisiana. Master class 1:30 p.m. Melcher Gym, 3855 Holman. For tickets and information, call 713-227-4SPA or visit $20 to $50.
Sat., Oct. 27, 7:30 p.m.; Sun., Oct. 28, 8 p.m., 2007
