It's an auspicious, yet sometimes apparently overwhelming task. Going to Shaolin to train. We have had a lot of experience with this in the past; there's more information in the Site FAQ area of the site. Follow the navigation menu up above.

Also, we can help you get to Shaolin to train with the various monks that we are familiar with. Contact us directly.

The site is best viewed with the latest Firefox or Internet Explorer. Older browsers distort the layout of the pages and make them unreadable. Safari alters the text sizes and destroys fonts. JAVA should be enabled and the latest Adobe Flash installed so that you can experience the various features. We do not use pop ups, although clicking on some links in the site might open up a new tab in your browser. Links might open to new windows or tabs because the site is rather extensive and complicated to navigate through.

Video Library (russboTV): A longstanding aspect of the site where you can view the hundreds of Shaolin and China related videos from russbo.com, videos that we have hosted long before the days of You Tube and other famous video sites. Membership in the Forum / Library allows you to upload your favorite videos at Media Areas / Video Library link in the navigation menu. There are links to the Video Library (russboTV) directly from the Forum / Library area also. Most of these videos were hosted by us long before the streaming of video on the internet was commonplace, mainly because we used our own server.

Supplemental Videos: Another video hosting solution on russbo.com, which is easily accessed directly from the main page of the russbo.com site, or via links in the Media Areas / Supplemental Videos portion of the upper navigation menu. Registering or logging in to the russbo.com site allows you to insert your favorite web hosted videos, or upload your own.

Media Library: Part of the Forum / Library area, this small media section catalogs interesting third party hosted videos.
