Song Jiang Battle Array Festival 2014

NEIMEN, TAIWAN - MARCH 15: A young articipant in a Songjiang battle troupe watches a performance on March 15, 2014 in Neimen, Kaoshiung, Taiwan. Songjiang Battle Array or Song Jiang Zhen is a folk martial art particular to Taiwan. The martial art dates to the Ming Dynasty and draws inspiration from the Chinese epic novel, 'Outlaws of the Marsh.' A lot of the weapons used in the martial art were originally modifications of agricultural implements and farming tools, as it evolved as a self-defense military tactic for Taiwanese farmers against invaders. Every year, an intercollegiate Songjiang Battle Array competition is held in Neimen, coinciding with the festival marking the birthday of Guanyin Buddha. (Photo by Theodore Kaye/Getty Images)
