What do you like about this subject?

The more i learn and the more i seem to know, the more i enjoy every little detail of Shaolin Kung Fu.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?


Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

A true Shaolin Kung Fu will seek not to hurt an attacker even if thy have a weapon or there are several attackers.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

When the Shaolin temple was burned for the 2nd time around 17/18th century, many Shaolin Monks were killed. Some though, under the symbol of the Jade Triangle given to the Shaolin Monks by the first Ming Emperor, continued the resistance. As a matter of identification the made a triangular symbol with the fingers; in the form of the Jade Triangle. They became know as the "Triads"
