Web companion to the PBS broadcast of the independent film by Martha Burr and Mei-Juin Chen.
"The famous fighting monks of the Shaolin monastery have seen a resurgence throughout the world, aided in part by the popularity of kungfu movies among the hip-hop set and films like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. The film follows a handful of Shaolin monks who have brought the style to America, chronicling their adventures in New York City, Houston and Las Vegas."

Thai Temples in North America
"The following list of Thai Buddhist temples in North America was originally prepared by Sorrayut Ratanapojnard, with corrections and additions made by Joy Aswalap. In the summer of 1996 Joy kindly gave John Bullitt the opportunity to update and maintain this list, which is based on her June 1994 edition (and which was originally downloaded from NECTEC's ftp site in Thailand). In February 1998, DharmaNet International agreed to continue the maintainance of this list. It has since been updated based upon information provided by the Thai Bhikkhus Council."
