Photographer's Note

Hundreds of boys learn Kung Fu at the Tagou Shaolin Kung Fu School, in Deng Feng, Henan, China. Not affiliated with Shaolin Monastery, which is nearby, the school trains boys of all ages. We were told that many parents feel Kung Fu training is both good discipline, and a good grounding for careers in the military or law enforcement. I was alarmed by the lack of protective padding and gear. Those kids were learning to do handsprings on stone pavement!
