The Characteristics of Shaolin Kungfu
The characteristics of Shaolin Kungfu are its emphasis on skillful fighting techniques and its solid base in actual combat. Therefore, Shaolin Kungfu form routines are compact and strong in structure and rapid and tight in sequence. The moves are forceful and quick; attack and defense are agile and effective; and the practitioner’s mental intentions and physical movements are in unison. One advances with proper directions and retreats with efficient means; all moves are connected seamlessly like a breath. Therefore, the Principle of Fist Forms states, “The body drawing in and leaping forcefully, the feet keeping stances and moving forth, the hands striking outward and withdrawing inward, one advances or retreats, rises up or drops low—the form in its entirety should be seamlessly practiced in one breath.”
