A great and exciting performance. I've seen these shaolin performance before on tv and the web but I was thoroughly impressed by their amazing feats of martial arts. Very well choreographed and very funny audience interaction. Especially with the little kids.

Though I was extremely ticked off with an audience member who was invited up to pull a bowl suctioned onto the performers stomach. He was a tall bald man, heavy set with a timberland sweater on. After one other audience member could not pull the bowl off. Timbaland as I'll call him goes up to the shaolin perform and punches in solar plexus so he would release the cup. The performers were polite and professional enough to let him try again and he then proceeds to punch AGAIN at the cup to release it. Pretty much he was a really disrespectful and a complete jerk for cheating and not doing what he was asked to do. To have the audacity to do that in front of a ton of families and children and especially these great performers from China to insult them and to insult New Yorkers by doing something to prove he was smarter then everyone else.

Its like asking someone to beat them in an arm wrestling match and he you do it by punching them in the face first to win. It wasn't about that it was a friendly show and this guy wanted to be Mr. Tough Guy. Timbaland you should feel ashamed for yourself and for embarrasing yourself and your family you were with.

To the shaolin performers. You were amazing and I was so happy to see such a great show. Bravo.
