The only Kung Fu monks I know come from Shaolin temple in China and are featured in the many movies I've seen growing up in this part of the world. Shaolin Kung Fu, also called Shaolin Wushu is among the oldest institutionalized style of Chinese martial arts. Shaolin kung fu originated and was developed in the Buddhist Shaolin temple in Henan province, China. During the 1500 years of its development, Shaolin kung fu, with its rich content, became one of the largest schools of kung fu.

I'm not too sure who this Holy Man is supposed to be but he does appear to be a video games character created and developed by Tencent Games and is an officially licensed product being released by Very Cool.

An interesting figure. He does not look Chinese to me though. I like this idea, I'm a big fan of old Shaw brothers productions. I'd love to see characters from The Kid With The Golden Arm or Executioners From Shaolin, or even The Five Deadly Venoms.

If I'm not mistaken wit the wand he holding, he the famous monk "XuanZang" master of "Sun WuKung" also know as monkey king in the Journey to the west novel. After the monkey king rebelling against heaven and being imprisoned under a mountain by the Buddha, he later accompanies the monk Xuanzang on a journey to retrieve Buddhist sutras from India. Wish I can get my hand on this.. Any idea? Plz advice?
