FAQ

What is the difference between Shaolin Kung Fu and other martial arts styles?

Shaolin Kung Fu differs from Karate and Tae Kwon Do in principle and technique. Karate comes from Okinawa and Japan. Tae Kwon Do is from Korea. Shaolin Kung Fu originated at the Shaolin Temple in China. Shaolin Kung Fu is more fluid and makes more use of circular techniques. Power is generated in much the same way as a towel that is being snapped. A towel is loose and soft, yet if it is snapped quickly like a whip, it becomes powerful and rigid at the point of impact.

What is the difference between Tai Chi and other forms of martial arts?

Unlike other forms of martial arts, Tai Chi Quan, also written as Tai Chi or Taiji, can be practiced by anyone regardless of age or physical condition. This is because Tai Chi requires little effort to perform. Slow, even, rhythmical movements coupled with proper breathing are the distinguishing features of its practice.
