    Shaolin Monks Find the Internet to be SERIOUS BUSINESS

    China kung fu monks seek apology for ninja affront

    BEIJING (Reuters) - China's Shaolin Temple, the cradle of Chinese kung fu, is demanding an apology from an Internet user who said its monks had once been beaten in unarmed combat by a Japanese ninja, Chinese media reported on Friday.

    Shaolin Temple, in the northern province of Henan, became famous in the West as the training ground for Kwai Chang "Grasshopper" Caine in the 1970s "Kung Fu" TV series.

    Ninjas -- professional assassins trained in martial arts -- date back to mediaeval Japan.

    "The so-called defeat is purely fabricated, and we demand the Internet user to apologize to the whole nation for the wrongs he or she did," the Beijing News said, citing a notice announced by a lawyer for the Shaolin monks.

    Relations between Chinese and Japanese are sensitive at the best of times, with emotions still running high over Japan's invasion and occupation of parts of China in the first half of the 20th Century.

    The Internet user, calling themselves "Five Minutes Every Day", said on an online forum last week that a Japanese ninja came to Shaolin, asked for a fight and many monks failed to beat him, the newspaper said.

    "The facts that the monks could not defeat a Japanese ninja showed that they were named as kung fu masters in vain," the Internet user was quoted as saying in the post.

    The Shaolin temple "strongly condemned the horrible deeds" of the user, the newspaper said.

    "It is not only extremely irresponsible behavior with respect to the Shaolin temple and its monks, but also to the whole martial art and Chinese nation," it quoted the monks as saying.

    You are just mad because wrestling is homoerotic.

    If only larpers could understand that sentence.

    An argument started on the internet over who has the strongest fake martial art. I, for one, welcome the Shaolin Temple into the digital age!

    Actually, I just wish we could wrestle in Tabi. Wrestling shoes might grip the mat good, but Ninjers use Tabi TO RUN UP WALLS.

    You realize they want to sue people for copyright infringement of their name?

    Yes, oh they love the web.
