Although the true history of Shaolin Kungfu is soaked in both tradition and myth and is unlikely to be fully determined, Shaolin Kungfu is the greatest martial art in the world! It has the most extensive techniques, skills, and philosophy. It enriches people’s life and leads people to the highest state of spiritual.
It is both an internal and external art. The internal focuses on breathing and the flow of Chi (energy) throughout your body. The external focuses on the punching and kicking aspects. In this way, it is both a “soft” and “hard” martial art. It places a large importance on the balance of Ying (阴) and Yang (阳) that is traditionally seen in Chinese philosophy. For example, instead of meeting force with force, a Kungfu practitioner will move or deflect the attack while simultaneously aiming their attack to an opponent’s weak points. In this way, Kungfu uses the attacker’s force against them, allowing for a smaller defender to defeat a larger attacker.
Well, Shaolin Kungfu is not principally meant for fighting. Instead, a Shaolin practitioner is trained to be courteous, considerate, brave, and righteous. True Shaolin followers can deal with problems and situations with calmness and clarity and attend to their duties with zest and loyalty. The Shaolin philosophy is compassion and wisdom.
