This lay monk of the Da Fa Wang temple in Henan is in his late teens, and as such is becoming quite physically powerful and athletic. He is using a light, flexible and relatively short spear, which allows him to move it exceptionally quickly. With each strike or thrust, the tip quivers but his body and stance are still. Whatever your opinions may be, this is a good modern wushu pattern - it has rhythm, focus and his face and eyes express purpose. Each move is distinct, but not robotic.
