Yijin Jing history
I recently created a video for a college course on martial arts and religion. It discusses the history of the Tendon-Changing Classic (Yijin Jing), a yoga-like exercise designed to strengthen the body. This manual is the source of the legend that Chinese martial arts were first created at the Shaolin temple. But instead of focusing on the legend itself, I discuss the exercise's historical context, literary influences, and effect on late dynastic martial arts.

Good but its more of a "how its made", needs more enthusiasm !

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

I didn't think my teacher would like the screaming, naked ladies, and random Michael Bay-style explosions that I originally planned on including in the film.
