REALMS OF PRACTICE

 

Shaolin Kungfu practice can be talked about in terms of three realms:

01In the primary realm, the practitioner practices their form and appearance.

02In the intermediate realm, there is the integration of mind and fist, changing the tangible into the intangible, turning the law into the lawless; obeying no rules, having no movement to follow, controlling the enemy in the intangible. An ancient boxing manual reads, `defeat a person in the intangible or fail being seen`.

03Shaolin Kung Fu's highest realm is for all to be guided by the heart and to fight not just from form but from the formless.

 

Buddhist practice is started in the mindful training of Kung Fu. It cultivates and entails the highest integrated wisdom of Buddhism and martial arts.

As the old saying goes: practise in a place where only a cow can lie; such is shaolin boxing, you're not limited by the place and its size. The shaolin style embodies a word -- hard. It is practiced with both attack and defense, but mostly attack. The form is not only beautiful, but also practical. The steps are flexible. Shaolin teaches you actions forward, actions of retreat, reaction and to punch directly in front of you. On body and fist, it is required that the arm is not too straight and to keep all the forward and backward motion natural. The foot technique must be stable and flexible, the eye technique requires staring at the opponent's eyes and for the breathing, the Qi should be "down to your dan tian'" before the Qi is released. "The action is as fast as a flash, a spin- like a turning wheel, a stance like pine and jump like a fly."

Shaolin boxing is divided into two schools, Southern, which emphasizes fists, and Northern, which emphasizes legs. There are many styles also within both Southern and Northern Shaolin.
