Kids from Shaolin, also known as Shaolin Temple 2: Kids from Shaolin, is a 1984 Hong Kong–Chinese kung fu comedy film directed by Chang Hsin-yen.


In the late Ming Dynasty, former Shaolin monk, Tianlong ("Heaven Dragon", played by Yu Hai), and his younger brother, Yilong ("Earth Dragon", Hu Jianqiang), raise eight orphan boys whom they saved from murdering bandits ravaging their home village. The children refer to Tianlong as their father and Yilong as their uncle and are taught Shaolin kungfu by the two. All have taken the last character name of Long (龙/龍). They settle at the mountainous area at Lijiang where they stay in a hut.
