The Palais des Sports of Maha­masina in Tananarive, Madagascar welcomes the African championships of Kung Fu wushu on September 5 and 8.

At the opening of the official competition where the best national fighters of the African continent will compete to win the supreme title in different categories, the organizers invited six monks from the monastery of Shaolin in China to present to the Malagasy public demonstration of their millennial martial art.

"The Malagasy people will live an unforgettable experience. Six Shaolin monks show their talent on display as an opening of the meeting.
