Shaolin Fists of Fury is the name of two of Shaolin's Greatest warriors, Kewl Chi Yin and Kruel Qi Yang Masters of the Shaolin Style. Their history is a long one but we'll give you a glimpse of the story that is theirs. Kewl and Kruel were born in the year 1006 a.d. in a Chinese Monastery called Wu Tang Shan, where they had been raised and tought the Shaolin's ways. They had a prolific sense for medicine and herbs, herbs were their favorite.
They studied and experimented with them and one day came up with the answer of immortality, this secret they only share with each other. In the spring of 1300 they relocated to the Chiu-Lien Monastery to further their Shaolin training under a mysterious Kung-Fu Master, they trained day and night, endless studies and back breaking trials. They were relentless in training and focused on success.
Only one night in 1339, Kruel awoke to the sound of murder, someone entered their masterís chamber and murdered him. It was the Japanese, Kewl and Kruel vowed to deliver revenge. They decided to stay in Chiu-Lien Shan and fast while meditating, gaining lost knowledge from their deceased master. The masters ghost taught them the deepest secrets of the Shaolin.
30 years they stayed in a meditative state learning, until 1368 Chiu-Lien was attacked by Japanese ninjas. Villagers awoke the duo and they arose to greatness, subduing the attackers. Kruel and Kewl had reached unbelievable power as Shaolin Masters!
Unfortunately the Fists do not like speaking of these times, but, do say they left Japan after hearing the Ching Dynasty Emperor, Sheng Tau, destroyed the Chiu-Lein Temple in 1682. Coming home to a destroyed land still covered in blood, The Fists become humble and realize life is to delicate. The Shaolin Fists of Fury wander the Chinese land for 250 years teaching villagers of the Shaolin ways, and healing it's sick with their knowledge of herb. The Fists did not pay attention to the fighting.
In 1930 Kewl and Kruel visit the Shao Lin Temple to find that their time has passed. 1949 The Fists move to America to learn about Western culture. They became college professors at Yale teaching students about the healing powers of herb, while hiding their knowledge of Shaolin.
1989 The Fists grow old of teaching and decide to brush up on their fighting skills. They move to New York to open a Shaolin training academy to spread the passion of the Shaolin to others.
1994 The Fists hear a sound that infatuates them, the sound of a broken beat, and insane bass embodied them. They were hooked, researching this thing called Drum and Bass, and started incorporating the sound with their training. They trained on how to mix, and do tricks with records keeping their Identity a mystery to all, they unleashed their fury upon the world.... THE SHAOLIN FISTS OF FURY WERE BORN AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
