Britian's Got Talent

A 10 members team from London who call themselves Team Shaolin has made it to the semfinals of the latest season of Britain's Got Talent.

The members (not real monks) are Matthew Metin Ahmet (21), Glenn Lillie (17), Jacob Davis (15), Sohail Badat (30), Iyanu Ogjunobi (12), Oni Ogjunobi (9), Jake Chisnell (9), Wiktor Glowacz (8), Adrian Glowacz (16), Lucas Crystal Campos (11)

Team Shaolin performs the martial art form ‘Shaolin’, which is an ancient 1500yr old form of Kung-fu involving channelled Buddhism (Zen). Buddhist monks practise it and are the ultimate masters of this form of Kung-fu. All members have shaved heads which represent the philosophy of the art form; the hair is seen as a cover which stops energy being let out. Moves in their routine consist of breaking iron bars (achieved through breathing and meditation), 2 finger handstands and many more.

The 1st of the 5 semi-finals starts tonight.
