Kelson Teo has come all the way from the Netherlands to study law at Tsinghua University in the Chinese capital. Before coming to China, he participated in a cultural exchange program called "Quest for Roots" and visited some historical sites in Xinzheng, central China's Henan Province. Although he only visited a few sites, he was impressed by the rich and time-honored history of the area.

During the tour, Teo said he was amazed by the discipline and perseverance of the youth in Shaolin Temple – they would train incessantly in sweltering heat without taking a single sip of water, exuding the true spirit of the Chinese martial arts.
