Shaolin Kung Fu, alternatively referred to as Shaolin Wushu or Shaolin Quan, is an ancient Chinese martial art with its inception at the Shaolin Temple situated in Henan Province, China. Having a history that exceeds 1,500 years, it is among the most ancient and renowned forms of Chinese martial arts.
The emphasis that Shaolin Kung Fu places on physical conditioning, agility, strength, flexibility, and quickness is well-known. It encompasses an extensive array of methodologies, including grappling, joint locks, strikes, kicks, and throws, in addition to a variety of implements including the staff, spear, sword, and nunchaku.
Shaolin Kung Fu training encompasses not only combat techniques, but also philosophical and spiritual development concepts. Developing virtues such as discipline, respect, humility, and compassion is a common emphasis of practitioners.
Shaolin Kung Fu has been transmitted across generations, not only within the Shaolin Temple but also among numerous martial arts schools and lineages across the globe. It is a global symbol of Chinese martial arts culture and has influenced a multitude of other disciplines.
