The Legend of Kung Fu Show Tours

The Legend of Kung Fu Show, which premiered at Beijing’s Red Theatre in 2004, tells the story of a young monk who dreams of one day becoming a kung fu master. The best kung fu practitioners from all across China tell the story through Chinese martial arts, traditional and modern dance, and Chinese acrobatics.

The Basics
Two performances are staged daily, and while the 80-minute production contains no dialogue, a screen above the stage tells the story with English subtitles to help foreign visitors follow along. The show is popular with both international and domestic tourists and is often included in package tours that also feature a Peking duck dinner or an afternoon visit to Pearl Market (Hongqiao Market) or the Temple of Heaven.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Chinese kung fu and acrobatic show is a must for performing-arts enthusiasts.
  • Most Legend of Kung Fu Show tours include hotel pickup and drop-off in Beijing.
  • Book your Legend of Kung Fu Show tickets ahead of time, as they often sell out.

How to Get There
The easiest way to reach the Red Theatre is by taking subway Line 5 to Tiantandongmen Station, situated near the east entrance to the Temple of Heaven. Taxis can sometimes be difficult to find near the theater.

When to Get There
There are two shows nightly at Beijing’s Red Theatre. Be sure to arrive a few minutes early to find your seat. 

Legend of Kung Fu Show Performers
This popular kung fu show is a hit largely due to the skill of the performers. China’s leading performing arts production company scouts for the best martial artists and dancers from around the country. The average age of the performers is only 17—a testament to their incredible talent.
