Little He Minxian, a common student of this private-running school, renowned as the "No.1 Shaolin Kung Fu Institute of China", was sent here 5 years ago due to his awkward temper by his parents, who run clothing business in Shanghai. After being separated with his parents, He Minxian devoted his whole childhood to the exercise room of this school.

It was a long and harsh period of time for little He Minxian. Some 5 years passed, this unbending and lovely boy, by means of his great interest, strong comprehension and huge willpower, has become a skilled "kid of Shaolin", performing an outstanding martial art. He ever took part in the performance of some crucial activities like the opening ceremony for the 2008 Paralympics and the celebrations for the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China last October.In the Shaolin Tagou Kung Fu Institute, around 24,000 students like He Minxian learn Chinese Kung Fu. The school opened courses including Kung Fu patterns, free boxing, boxing, taekwondo, and Kung Fu performance. Besides, an integrated education system has been formed at the institute, containing full-time nursery, primary school, secondary school and college. A large number of children presented themselves an enriched and happy childhood.
