The Shaolin FAQ section has undergone many revisions in the past twelve years. It essentially started out as responses to emails that I had received. All of the questions listed in these sections are real; they were sent to me by people who either had visited Shaolin, or were planning to. As they became a veritable font of information, I decided to publish them.

There is a lot of information in these sections, some comical, some highly relevant for safe and efficient training journeys to Shaolin. If there are any questions that you would like to see answered, don't hesitate to contact me. There's no such thing as a bad question. There are stupid ones, but there are no bad ones. I'll answer them all.
