China's storied Buddhist monastery invites followers and interested observers alike to LA for a week-long celebration. The clear standout event is the kung fu competition, whose winners earn two weeks of closed-door training at the Shaolin Temple in China. Practioners of the art can find classes, training and a cultural expo during the rest of the week at the Los Angeles Convention Center and Shaolin Temple Cultural Center (9143 La Rosa Dr).
