Shaolin Boxing is originated from the Shaolin Temple. It is named Shaolin


Boxing due to the name of the Temple. Shaolin Boxing refers to both the Shaolin
martial arts and weapons. Shaolin Temple locates in Dengfeng City, Henan
province , about 13 kilometers away to the northwest of Dengfeng City. In 495 , the
Emperor Xiaowen of the Bei-Wei Dynasty constructed it for the Indian missionary
monk Batuo. Since the Temple was bui 1t in Songshan offshoot , it is named
Songshan Shaolin Temple.

There are many stories about the origin of Shaolin Wushu , but the credible
evidence should

start om

Sui and Tang dynasties.

In 620 , Li Yuan and Li Shimin fought against the general of the Sui dynastyWang Shichong in Luoyang , in the crucial moment of the battle , Tan Zong headed
Shaolin monks to arrest Wang

Shichor 's

nephew-Wang Renze , and sent him to

the Tang camp. After Li Shimin became the emperor, he rewarded the monks for
their help , and Tan Zong was awarded the title of the General. This battle made
Shaolin monks famous for their boxing. From then on, Shaolin martial arts had a
glorious start. Afterwards Shaolin Temple has developed rapidly, its reputation has
grown. After the Zhen Guan period, Shaolin monk "read the Buddhist books in the
day, practiced martial arts in the night , while studying the Buddhist books , they
didn' t forget military preparations" (from Xilai Tang Zhishan Tana-Monument).
Studying the Buddhist books and practicing martial arts have become the unique
Shaolin style passed on from generation to generation.

""""

In the Northern Song period, Fu Ju , the headmaster of Shaolin Temple , invited


national celebrities in martial arts to Shaolin Temple in order to learn from each
other. When Jin army invaded the Northern Song, the Shaolin monk Zong Yin was
appointed to command "Zunsheng team" and "Jingsheng team" to fight against the
Jin army in Tongguan , serving the country.

In Yuan dynasty, because Buddhism was popular, Shaolin Temple maintained


close to the Royal , the Mongol emperor appointed Fu Yu to chair Shaolin monks

and lead all the monasteries in Song Mountain area. At that time , the Shaolin
Temple had 2 ,000 monks , among which Zhi An , Zhi Ju , Zi An and Dang Xun were

very famous Monks in martial arts.

In the Ming Dynasty, the Shaolin martial arts fiourished and became famous
in the world. The Shaolin stick held an important status in the Shaolin martial arts ,
which was also known as the most famous enginery for the Shaolin monks. Mao
Yuanyi , author of the book Records 01 the Weapons highly praised the Shaolin stick.
In his opinion, "Stick is the ancestor of all martial arts , and Shaolin is the cradle
of the stick." Especially in the Anti-Japanese Pirate War, stick was recorded in the
weapon in July, 23 of perpetual calendar of Shaolin Temple stele as "Our temple' s
monks were maneuvered for several t mes and fought against the enemy bravely'\
Another record in the Shanghai anecdotes series- Wusong says "All of them held
the stick which was 7 feet long , 15 kg in weight, and swift like the bamboo rod. The
warriors were so brave that if any soldier be ahead of the war field , he would act as
a vanguard..." The Shaolin monks wrote many moving and praisable glorious epics
which record their great behaviors for the nation and people.

Shaolin Temple. In 1928, Shi Yousan, who belonged

to e

department of F eng

Yuxiang of Kuoming Tang fought with Fan Zhongxiu , who belonged to the
Jianguo m Shi

set fire on Shaolin Temple to give vent to his personal rage

after attacking and occupying it. The fire lasted for more than 40 days , which
destroyed al1e constructions and precious cultural relics in the temple.

1982

After the foundation of the People' s Republic of China, both Shaolin Temple
and Shaolin martial arts get their new lives. The Party and govemment not only
allocate exclusively to rebuild Shaolin Temple but also pay much attention to the
development of Shaolin martial arts. 1982 should be mentioned , as the film Shao /i n
Temple produced by HongKong Zhongyuan Film Company was released to the

public , which made the Shaolin martial arts reach its climax.

Shaolin Boxing is unvamished , basing itself upon actual combat, and also has
the distinctive characteristic of technical attack.

To punch out straight like a line , and to practice punching even in someplace
only available for the cattle.

Shaolin Boxing has various sets and compact conformation, which is short
but strong enough. When exercising, the movements up and down are almost in
a line. Lots of masters of Shaolin Boxing believe that from the practice point of
view, two people in a fighting encounter are only apart from each other for several
paces , which means that the linear movement that division victory and defeat in a
second is the most effective one. All above show fully that Shaolin Boxing is not
restricted by the size of field , and its skills and power can be displayed anytime and
lywhere.

Move rapidly, quickly and forcefully.

Shaolin Boxing demands be energetic,

power

and rapid actions, which

is "To start boxing with bombards , and to get it done without any
rapl less

lep"

"The

is before all in thousand boxing movements". In the process of routine

drilling , tens and several movements are required to be finished in a coherent and
rapid way. Although Shaolin Boxing focuses on the firmness , it should be supported
by flexibility. "Firmness

comes rst

and then flexibility". To move like the wind ,

and to stand like the peg. Be heavy as mountain , light as feather. Wh en defending,
be as a virgin , when assaulting , like a tiger. Motionless is to wait at its ease for an
exhausted encounter, and moving boxing makes the encounter be out of rest, etc.

Curl and straight both don' t always take their co and the hand movements
are full of flexibility.

""

As for the hand skills , Shaolin Boxing requires the two arms to keep a certain
degree of curvature. When striking a fist and push a palm , the legs should be
driven , the waist be turned , and the shoulder be shaken powerfully. "The body
moves according to the hand's rolling movements , which abides by the rolling

EognEdhz

movements of itself". Ankylosis and clumsiness are not allowed at all. At the very
moment of finishing , the arms should form some kind of posture that is not so curl
or so straight to create further condition for another convenient attack and defense.

The rolling movements are even the scientific re f1 ects on the technology of attack
and defense , for the rolling can accumulate the power of attack , and is good for the
defense to dissolve the attack.

Eyes on eyes as the eyes skills.

The requirements of Shaolin Boxing for eyes rely on the head movements
according to the posture , the eyes' trace for the hand , and eyes on eyes to scan the
enemy. When practicing Shaolin Boxing , one's eyes should be as sharp as possible
to make the movements rapid. "Be hostile in gaze, calm in mind, bright in eyes,
and divine in temperament" , which then can result in aggressive vigour.

When fighting against each other, one pays his attention to the other's
expression in his eyes , not his hands and body, to plan the next step.
)1

To be balanced in body movements , and f1 exible in foot movements.

When attacking , Shaolin Boxing requests the firm barycenter and straight
body to exert force , which can also increase the attacking power. When defense ,

it requests flexibility and rapidness. In a word , the defending rnovernents rnostly


require side posture to reduce the scope of attacked area and be good for further
defense and attack.

Internal and external integration , and unity of forrn and spirit is the
characteristics for the whole Shaolin Boxing rnovernents. Each posture rnust rnove
hands , eyes , body, and feet to make the whole closely cooperate and coordinate
with each other. As Shaolin Boxing rnoves the entire body cornpactly and is
difficult to open a large , the body has a corresponding specific requirements: "The
hip and shoulder, elbow and knee , hand and foot should combine with each other."
Nhich

is the so-called inside three cornbines. Shaolin Boxing takes the thoughts

as the heart , "Courage will forrn if heart beats". "If hcart beats , the four extrernity
get its beat and the intemal power comes out'\"Body movements trace back the
heart beats". "Heart and wi l1 cornbine , the same with will and breath , and breath
and strength". Which is the so-called outside three cornbines. The Shaolin Boxing
chart says , "Fist is the law, and breath is the strength. When exercising breathing in
motions , intake and outtake of breath should abide by the movements. The intake
of breath relies on the slowness , and the outlake hurry. Breath is always before the
strength". In fact it tells that the highly unification of consciousness and acts in the
tc:chnical fighting and routine practicing.
