Ancient Warriors - The Shaolin 3/3



Kung fu (功夫)
Chinese martial arts may possibly be traced to the Xia Dynasty (夏朝) which existed more than 4000 years ago. Their origin is attributed to self-defenseneeds, hunting activities and military training in ancient China. Hand-to-hand combat and weapons practice were important components in the training of Chinese soldiers. From this beginning, Chinese martial arts proceeded to incorporate different philosophies and ideas into its practice—expanding its purpose from self-defense to health maintenance and finally as method of self-cultivation. The influence of martial ideals in civilian society spread into poetry, fiction, and eventually film.
