Shaolin Grandmaster Shi DeRu with his leading performers Li Qiang, Chen Zhe (Shawn Liu) and his world famous, “Shaolin Legacy Show” team will perform at the Atlanta Hawks 45th Season NBA Opener against the Houston Rockets, November 2nd. The LIU International Shaolin Institute has been invited to partner with the Atlanta Hawks at the Phillips Arena, where the nationally acclaimed, “Shaolin Legacy Show” team will perform excerpts from it’s full-length, world famous production with the special theme for the Hawks Season Opener being, “Meet The Challenge”.
Shaolin masters and monks, like Grandmaster Shi DeRu, are world renowned for their unrivaled excellence in Martial Arts. Shaolin culture has produced world champion martial arts competitors and superbly trained athletes rich in discipline, integrity and honor. These athletes exemplify the Shaolin mind-set, while preserving a way of life and state of being that originated 15,000 years ago in the Hunan Province of China, at the Shaolin Temple, where it lives on to this day.
“Meet The Challenge” depicts the cultural, life lessons, and tradition of Shaolin people, and their remarkable ability to harness the ‘life force’ or “Qi” to meet the challenges of life with extraordinary self-control, discipline, compassion, and integrity. It tells the story of a group of Kung Fu students traveling with the traditional Shaolin characters, “The Magnificent Five” on a life-long journey, during which, like all of us, they are faced with seemingly insurmountable difficulties and obstacles. Every challenge we meet is won or lost by our body and mind before we even embark on the journey. “Meet The Challenge” demonstrates how superior control over mind and body is all that is necessary to meet and exceed any challenge we are faced with.
This inspirational performance will appeal to audiences of all ages and from all walks of life because its message is universal. While demonstrating, through captivating choreography, the art of expertly performed Kung Fu, and immersing the audience through the story-line in the values and wisdom imparted by the ancient Shaolin Temple Masters; discipline, self-control, character and integrity; “Meet The Challenge” promises to deliver to its audience a visually stunning depiction of cultural and personal enlightenment. The moral of the story is timeless and one for the ages. “Life represents the Qi of the universe,” says Master DeRu. “Let’s be free, discover and flow with Qi and with nature, summoning the best of ourselves to meet the challenges in life, in ways that benefit and empower us.”
This Shaolin Legacy " Meet The Challenge" is a true East-West Cultural Show which expresses the multicultural Atlanta sportsmanship and hospitality to our competitor team; Atlanta Hawks at the Phillips Arena, Atlanta Metropolitan area communities, and Asian community welcome the Houston Rockets and their Asian star performer Jeremy Lin to this great city of Atlanta.
