Production

Shooting lasted five months, between 18 October 2008 and 16 March 2009. Locations include the Wudang Mountains, Peach Blossom Island, Longyou Grottoes, Wuyi Mountains and Hengdian World Studios.

Renaming of "Shaolin Sect" to "Monks' Sect"

In the series, the Shaolin Sect (or Shaolin Monastery) has been renamed to "Monks' Sect" (僧人派). The change is believed to be because the producers wanted to avoid trademark infringement, since Shaolin Monastery has officially registered "Shaolin" as a trademark and has been involved in lawsuits with commercial companies over the use of "Shaolin" as a brand name or trademark.
