Shaolin can be traced from around 1500 years ago. The first original shaolin temple was located at the foot of the Song mountain. Historically, it was established by the Indian monk who had come to spread Buddhism in China. However, the temple was later closed, Later on, the temple was reopened after two years. Ta Mo, a Buddhist, is believed to have been admitted in the first temple in Northern China.  However, during this time, most of the monks used to fall asleep during training. At other times, he would notice that the older monks developed frequent physical problems due to the extensive training and meditation. To alleviate this, he introduced 49 postures designed to keep people awake.  Some of these were the very first forms used in Shaolin training.Despite the slow initial take off, shaolin martial arts now has modern techniques that have been found to be quite effective.

There are huge content and forms in shaolin martial arts, some of main ones include: internal Gongfu, external kung fu, hard one, light one, Qi gong, and so on. Internal  training is different from light kung fu. The former focuses on practicing the strength of one's body while the latter focuses on the jump - especially Chikung, which helps in maintaining Chi. Shaolin teaches the use of hand-to hand defense, the use of weapons, or a combination of both .Forms used include: straight sword, spear, combat, performance sparring among other forms. Once a trainee is trained on one level, they proceed to the next depending on their mastery.
