Birth of Martial Art
In terms of the fountain of Shaolin Kung fu, opinions separate. But it’s mostly believed that it is the Chan sect founder Da Mo who thought up martial arts based on the movements of animals and his own meditation experience, and taught other monks such movements and breathing exercises to keep them strong.
Another version was linked to historical events, in which troops of monks with martial arts were involved. At the end of Sui Dynasty and the Beginning of Tang Dynasty, Shaolin temple did not escape the flames of war. An army of 13 Shaolin monks fully utilized their ability and played a key role in saving future emperor Li Shimin. Legend has it that since then the tradition of martial art training for monks started and thrived, and Shaolin temple distinguished itself as valor and vigor for martial art.
Despite the divided views, one thing’s for sure that Shaolin Kung fu gradually evolved into a complete martial art system from practice in daily life and martial experience, supplemented with contributing factors from Buddhism and essential parts of society and times. At the very beginning, it was premised on the purpose of self-protection or defense and in the later development it was applied into political and military use.
