北少林功夫 __ bei shaolin kung fu

by -- Lyency February. 09, 2009 3126 views

Kung Fu was first practised by Chinese Monks who later established the Shaolin Temple. Kung Fu is grounded in the philosophy of Taoism.

Taoism (simply translated, ‘The way’ or ‘path’) was founded by Lao-Tzu (604-531 BCE) and recorded in the ‘Tao Te Ching’. It is a collection of teachings for living in harmony with nature, other people and within yourself.

The life goals or three jewels for a Taoist are compassion, humility and moderation. Taoism is about living within nature’s laws and in harmony with the cycle of nature Kung fu aims to keep us in harmony and balance.
