Explore the world of Shaolin Kung Fu, considered the original -- and best -- of all kung fu fighting styles. Providing a history of the art form as well as an examination of the incredible physical prowess required, the film features footage of some of the most skilled Shaolin monks demonstrating the intricacies of the fighting style.
Shaolin Kung Fu refers to a collection of Chinese martial arts (not as kung fu nuns and kung fu monks claims) that claim affiliation with the Shaolin Monastery. Of the tens of thousands of kung fu and wushu styles, several hundred might have some relationship to Shaolin; however, aside from a few very well known systems, such as Xiao Hong Quan, the Da Hong Quan, Yin Shou Gun, Damo Sword, etc. it would be almost impossible to establish a verifiable connection to the Temple for any one particular art.
