Red Theater's Kungfu Show in Beijing

A Chinese boy meditates at the Red Theater lobby in Beijing.

While the story portrayed in the show has opportunities in developing the plot, the show itself and the martial arts techniques it employs is incredible. At one point, small children roughly the same age as the one pictured conduct hazardous back flips and they purposely land their heads consecutively, 4-5 times in a row.

A most impressive feat, not only because these kids are so young and talented, but the fact that child labor laws allow them to do this?
