China’s Famed Shaolin Temple Kick Starts Online Store

From Reuters:

China’s Shaolin Temple, the birthplace of kung fu and the star of many martial arts films, has set up an online store to flog its wares.

Named “Shaolin The Stage of Joy“, a Web page has been set up by a unit of the temple on popular Chinese e-commerce site www.taobao.com, offering a range of goods including shoes, tea, T-shirts and slippers.

Enthusiasts can snap up a kung fu instruction manual for 9,999 yuan ($1,456), or pick up a pair of “environmentally friendly” chopsticks for 29 yuan.
