The Combination of Power, Strength, Elegance, Style and Mind - this what is reflected in the scenario of this picture, It is what both represent - the famous Ajman Stud and the Shaolin Monks, the Kung Fu and Chi warriors from China!
Every year in the middle of January, His Highness Sheikh Ammar Bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Crown Prince of Ajman and owner of the famous Ajman Stud, organizes an Arab horse show in his emirate. Although just an ECAHO national C-level, this show is one of the very best in atmosphere, setting and design of the show ground, and each year a different theme with a spectacular finishing ceremony and evening show with lights, sound, fireworks and special displays before the champions and medal winners of the Arab horse show get announced and awarded. Each year, Sheikh Ammar produces something different to the previous years, while on each occasion you experience a presentation and final of highest class, style, taste, creativity, all selected by a great mind!
This year, in 2010, the famous group of the Shaolin monks were invited and flown in for an exciting presentation. The home of the Shaolin monks is in China at the Shaolin temple, and the group of fourteen monks between ten and seventy years in age is travelling around the world to demonstrate their art of Kung Fu.
A tradition of peace, harmony and spirituality forged through years of struggle, invasion and war, with the constant threat to their sacred temple, led the Shaolin to create a unique form of martial art, based on their spiritual beliefs - and they named it Kung Fu!
In a once forbidden world, at a time of incredible change, in a fast growing economy, a two thousand year old tradition continues at a legendary temple, famous all over the world as The Shaolin Temple.
Discipline, strength, spirit, and the mastering of mind is the basis of their art reflected in a unique theatrical presentation by an international creative team of fourteen Shaolin monks with the youngest aged ten and the oldest of the group being seventy. The Shaolins portray a story of compassion, survival and triumph.
