The term “Kung Fu” refers to the martial arts of China. Kung Fu originated in a place called the Shaolin Temple, where monks practiced Kung Fu for health and self-defense. In its original meaning, kung fu can refer to any skill achieved through hard work and practice, not necessarily martial arts.
Speaking about martial arts, even today many people are confused and never understand what martial arts actually means. A lot of people still believe “monkey style,” “drunken mantis style,” whatever style you think of, can be used in a real fight. That’s wrong, in a real fight, there is no style. You knock someone down as soon as possible – that’s a fight. You can use just one finger to knock people down, your palms, fist, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, foot, head – there are no rules in a real fight.
Shaolin Martial Arts Association of India (SMAAOI) established since 1998 and officially registered in year 2004 with mission to develop fitness, self defense skill and mastery in Shaolin Kung Fu among interested individuals and institution personnel.
