By: Pranav Mehta | May 23 2012 | 418 words (hits)>

Shaolin Kung Fu is not one martial discipline but in fact is a combination of the best martial arts in the world as practitioners of this Shaolin Kung Fu profess.

Styles that are practiced in this branch of martial arts; Shaolin Kung Fu have been developed in the Shaolin Temple of China by the monks there. The basics of these variants of Shaolin Kung Fu existed even before the Shaolin Temple existed which is before 500 BC. The monks developed the variants and the Shaolin Temple became famous for propagation of Shaolin Kung Fu in the world.The practice of Shaolin Kung Fu by the particular order of the Buddhist Monks of the Shaolin Temple was a part of their religious practice and training. Shaolin Kung Fu is much more than a martial art as understood in the conventional meaning of the term ‘martial art’, but a discipline, a way of life for the followers; the Shaolin temple monks and all their disciples who have learnt from them.

It is only a privileged few who have had the good fortune of learning this art from the real masters since there is no Shaolin Kung fu school formally recognized by the temple to spread the knowledge. Shaolin King Fu is brought back to India by a few dedicated and skilled masters who have had the privilege of training at the Monastery. Shaolin India or the Indian branch of the Chinese Temple Monastery training is an attempt by these masters to keep this art alive and to propagate the skills that they have learnt through rigorous training in China. Only that Shaolin Kung Fu School that has been established by these trainers who have been directly trained at the Chinese monastery can be called the authentic Shaolin Kung Fu School.

Shaolin Kung Fu developed in the Temple has a collection of 1500 different styles. Among Shaolin Kung Fu styles there are two distinct categories; the Northern Temple Styles and the Southern Temple Styles both emphasizing on distinct techniques. The techniques that are taught at the schools of Shaolin in India are derived from both these styles. Most of the techniques of both Northern and Southern Shaolin Kung Fu School have been adapted by the Shaolin India Schools.

For those who wish to learn this martial art of Shaolin in India itself, the Shaolin Kung Fu School is a good option but care has to be taken to find the authenticity of the trainers and masters who run the Shaolin Kung Fu School in the area.
