Discover The Hidden Mysteries of Shaolin Kung Fu
The earliest memory I have of Shaolin Kung fu techniques was while watching a martial arts movie. I loved the style of martial arts so much Roquan Smith Jersey , that I watched the second movie and dreamt of learning it one day. There was something so riveting about watching the punches, kicks and jumps. Even though it was Hong Kong Hollywood, it looked so much more real than most martial arts you see. Ive watched a lot of martial arts movies in my day. In fact, theyre actually my favorite type of movie. Recently I saw Jet Li in Fearless. Though his style in that movie was wing chun.

Why is kung fu my favorite form of martial art? Probably because of the exotic origin. Its a style practiced by monks. You wouldnt think monks would know a fighting style, especially when they stand for peace and nonviolence but they do practice it every day, for the entirety of their lives. Its like their way of seeking higher consciousness and its a viable combat art. Most kung fu you see in movies or during shows Khalil Mack Jersey , or exhibitions are stylized sport martial arts. But not the shaolin. There are historical references of it being used in defensive battle as far back as 728 B.C. Normally, when you see a martial artist, its usually big muscles, lots of noise, a show, right? Not this one. This art trains practitioners with the purpose of nature. Im sure youve heard references to it in the movies Wholesale Bears Hats , where someone engaged in kung fu took a tiger stance or that of the crane.

Each one of these has a purpose behind it attached to the meanings of the animals, not to mention that the types of Shaolin have really cool names like 'Jiao long nu kong', which means the coiling dragon growls in wrath', or 'Qian jintui' the 'leg weighing one thousand jins'. compare that to boxing. Jab. Cross. How dull!

You cant help but admire the training and dedication, the grace, and fluidity of movement that accompanies this martial art. Out of all of the ones Ive read Wholesale Bears Hoodies , seen or done research on, I keep coming back to this one. Warrior monks even won battles and were honored using these techniques. It boggles my mind when I think of it. Weapon use, boxing, spins, kicks - all of it at lightening fast speeds and almost inhuman precision. I find myself sitting on the edge of my seat waiting eagerly for the next bad guy to come along or the next move in the exhibition.

Its amazing how they can do all those moves - flying through various forms, blocks Wholesale Bears Shirts , kicks, jumps, punches - and then stop give their bow and not even be breathing hard. They dont just use any weapon, either. A popular one is the long spear. Ive held one before. They arent light and theyre long. To use one takes a lot of skill, and they make it seem so easy.

It doesnt matter what form or practice of Shaolin Kung fu techniques are being used, I love it!
