    This ain't Shaolin

    I figure that the Shaolin Temple must have been brimming with kung fu monks who each did a different style and each spawned at least fifty unique styles each. And a bunch of midget nuns who appear in another hundred histories from Mok Gar to Wing Chun. I bet that if you look around enough, you can find examples of literally every style of Kung Fu claiming to be derived from the Shaolin temple. But thatís too easy, what more challenging is finding Traditional Southern Chinese Kung Fu styles that do NOT claim significant lineage to the Shaolin Temple. Are there any?

    I think that most of the family styles (Hung, Chang, Yue, et al.) were developed independantly, although there's no accounting for influence. There's also the list of Daoist styles, including Six Harmonies, taiji and the like. While I'm at it, I'm pretty sure that Hsing Yi evolved on its own as well.

    Many Kung Fu masters didnt learn KF from Shaolin but sought revuge in the temples when running from the Manchu goverement. Thus there styles were added or taught in shaolin. This is how many styles came from shaolin, cause not all styles were actually developed there, but were taught there.

    I always like sharing this when Shaolin Temple is mentioned.

    Fu Yu's Lineage - 1st Generation Fighting Monk:
    Fu Yu became abbot at the beginning of the Sung Dynasty. This was a very warlike period in China's history and people everywhere were in danger from brigands and armies. Fu Yu invited the best martial artists to come and share their knowledge while training at the Shaolin temple. Three times, for a period of three years each time, martial artists from many places came to the Shaolin temple to share their knowledge. The Shaolin monks recorded the forms and techniques which they observed into a library which was kept at Shaolin. It is for this reason that the Shaolin Temple is often considered the birthplace of martial arts. However this is incorrect. The Shaolin Temple can be seen more as a modern day University that simply studied martial arts and then combined the useful techniques into a new system. This system is now known as Shaolin Kung Fu.
    It bust the big myth that CMA all came from the Shaolin Temple. Other references show that the so called "warrior monks" were really monks but soldiers living in the temple for various reasons.

    Asia, your crappy photo was bugging me, so I cleaned it up a little bit. I'm sure there are more profficient Photoshoppers on the site, but none of them are up late and procrastinating, are they?

    It was always my understanding that the original shaolin forms were only meant to be meditative stances, not a martial art.

    No. That isn't proven, that is still up for debate.
