I grew up a bit and mostly forgot about "nuns" apart from the occasional film reminders "Nuns on the run", "Sister Act 1 & 2" until i started doing "kung fu" and my teacher talked about the monastic tradition of the buddhist shaolin and how the monks, who were celebate, cultivated their sexual energy through chi kung. Their kung fu could be used to defend the temple from bandits but the main focus of the discipline was to achieve enlightenment. The female buddhist nuns developed their own styles of kung fu, one of which was Wing Chung.
Things change , "The Stupids" now play Drum and Bass , i still practise a little martial arts but mostly for fun/health and my Aunt is now a Mother Superior !
