This week we pay tribute to the Shaolin Canadian Team Downtown Toronto members that competed in the 10th Zhengzhou International Shaolin Wushu Festival, a tournament that really could be called the Shaolin Olympics with representation from over 70 countries and nearly 2,000 competitors.  We brought back 11 medals, a nice mix of silvers and bronzes in various categories of traditional Shaolin martial arts kung fu!
