                                                         Chinese Martial Arts

The term martial art means the War arts. It is a collection of techniques used in waging war involving weapons of different kind. Martial art is also a tool for training mind, body and spirit. Various kinds of martial arts are being practised today.
Among these Chinese martial arts are getting popularity in the world today. History shows that martial arts practice in China started during the reign of Huangdi, the yellow emperor of Zhou Dynasty (BC 255 - AD 1122). Huangdi was a Military General. He is the founder of China ’s oldest martial art Chang Quan.

Literary meaning of kungfu is hard work. It means ones expertise in any skill. The exact meaning of the word is rest time. Kungfu does not mean practicing any Chinese martial art. Instead, it refers to the process of ones training and strengthening of mind and body. ie; perfection of skill rather than what is being trained. It refers the excellence achieved through long practice in any endeavour. You require motivation, self-discipline, and time to reach this higher level of skills.

But in modern world, when someone say that they are practicing kungfu, it means practicing one or many styles or systems of Chinese martial art.

Many people believe that Shaolin temple is the only place for learning kungfu. However, this is not the fact. Some kungfu styles originated in Shaolin temple and many other kungfu styles developed in different part of China even before the Shaolin temple was ever constructed, under family systems or other ways. But Shaolin temple played a vital role in popularising kungfu. It is a concept consisting of most effective and devastating methods of self-preservation known to man. Chinese martial arts are divided into two categories.

Chinese martial arts are divided into two categories.

                                           1.External or hard     2. Internal or Soft

External martial arts use muscular force, speed and strength to produce power. Jow Ga kungfu, Hung-Gar kungfu and Choy Ley Fut fall under this category. They are aggressive and use brute force. Internal or soft schools actively combine life force energy with muscle strength to produce power and overcome the opponent. Pakua, Hsing I, and Tai Chi fall under this category. Internal schools are defensive and passive.

External martial arts are classified again according to their origin as Northern Chinese martial art and Southern Chinese martial art.
Northern Chinese martial arts are of military origin. Northern Praying Mantis, Chan Quan are examples of two Northern styles.

Southern Chinese martial arts are defence methods of farmers and common men. Hung-Gar, Wing Chun etc. fall under this category.
Again another criterion for classification is the range of fighting. Accordingly it can be classified in to close range and long range fighting styles.

                                                           Origin

In Shaolin temple martial arts were practiced not with the objective of fighting against others. The monks practiced these techniques only to purify the self. Of course, fighting with their inner self to eliminate all negativities. It was a way of life. Bodhi Dharma, an Indian monk is believed to have introduced kungfu in Shaolin temple. He was the son of king Sugandha of Kanchipuram, Tamilnadu, India . He belongs to a warrior caste in India and was an expert in martial arts. He was a Buddhist and a Zen teacher of Mahayana stream. He travelled to China where he met the Chinese Emperor Wu in 475 AD. He further travelled to North, crossed the Yangtse river and entered the Shaolin Temple . There he spent nine years in meditation always facing a wall. This earned him the title “The Wall Gazer.” It was during his stay there, Bodhi Dharma developed a concept the well-known form of kungfu.
