I can not say for certain that he did not run up the wall. But from where I was standing, it most certainly did not look like he ran up the wall. He was wearing brown and grey robes with a bright yellow belt, not the stereotypical bright orange and black robes associated with the other Shaolin monks. He was wearing brown trousers and had a shaved head like most of the other Buddhist monks I've seen. He didn't have any dots on his head. He did have a tattoo of a turtle on his right hand, though. I couldn't tell you his name because I'm not good at Chinese, but in English his name sounded to me like "Shi Zheng" or "Xie Xiang" or something similar (with the sh- prefix and -ng suffix). He was probably in his late-40's or early-50's, with yellow sun-bronzed skin and a silvery white hairline. Besides leaping on to a rooftop in China, he also balanced a bo-staff vertically off the ground with his entire body positioned at a 90° right-angle at the top of the bo-staff. He also balanced a wooden bowl above his head while juggling five flaming pebbles of various sizes with his bare hands. I know it sounds impossible to most people, but I witnessed all of these events first-hand in person during my trip to China in 2006.
I will try to provide evidence once I find it. I have a lot of things in storage right now, as there's just not enough room at my house for everything. I have years of unorganized paperwork, old photographs, and junk from when I was younger. I just have to find time and the motivation to get around to it. It's literally going to take a while. I apologize for any delay.
I have a hard time believing that in 2006, nobody took pictures or video of this demonstration. A leap like that would be rather noteworthy... as would the rest of the act.
