On kung fu clothing base of five style of Guangdong province (styles of Hong, Cai, Li, Liu and Mo families) it was created new sport computational style nanquan (southern fist). Names of movements were changed, as a result movements lost mental contents: realy, "crushing mountain strike" is different from "fist bang on a palm".

But in this time popularity of wushu un foreign countries began increase due to kung fu movies. For in admission of decreasing of international prestige wushu was let alone.
What is Taiji?
Taiji (Qi Gong Video) is an ancient Chinese martial art that is unique in its use of slow and graceful movements. Taiji is both an excellent health exercise and an effective martial art system; a low impact and slow moving exercise program, with little stress on the body.
Meditation, deep relaxation, and breathing exercises are practiced before each and every class. Deep relaxation and stretching exercises before class help the student to increase the mind-body connection and become centered and sensitive to the energy patterns in life. Circular movements of all the joints encourage increased blood flow, thus promoting a feeling of well-being.
As an exercise prescription, it seems that Taiji has potential benefits for reduction of stress and reduction of tension and anxiety . Taiji is beneficial to some important components of health fitness, such as cardiopulmonary function, strength and flexibility . Moreover, the exercise intensity of Taiji is approximate to the ventilatory threshold, which implies that Taiji is aerobic in nature. Studies showed an eight week, low-intensity Taiji program was effective for reducing blood pressure.
To practice Taiji, one needs no special equipment. Hospitals such as the INOVA group are now endorsing the benefits of Taiji and offer classes to patients who are recovering from various illnesses.
Ancient Chinese philosophers developed the concept of Taiji through intensive study of the world that surrounded them. Taiji principles describe practical approaches to solving problems in natural and human realms.
With constant focus on mind, spirit and body working as one throughout the exercises a great healing will begin. The mental clarity that one receives from practice is priceless. The objectives of Taiji include harmony of mind, promotion of health and attainment of rejuvenation and longevity.
The historians of nearly every Asian martial art acknowledge Shaolin as the ancestral art. The Shaolin temple system was actually a martial arts research institution, with thousands of monks working 12 hours a day to perfect the art of self-defense.
Since its creation, Shaolin has collected, refined and retained over 980 katas (forms), representing more than 50 different open hand systems and many different weapons. Contrary to the popular belief that Shaolin monks only practiced the "hard styles", every major form of internal kung fu was practiced in the Shaolin temples. This includes every major family of Tai Chi and Pa Kua, as well as Hsing Ie and the very rare Shaolin Kung Fu (shooting star). Shaolin monks also possessed an awesome body of knowledge on esoteric Taoist and Buddhist Chi Kung (breath training) and Nei Kung (internal training) techniques.
In the final analysis one must look at the fighting effectiveness of a martial art. Shaolin Do stays true to its temple roots as an art of survival, not of sport. If one is to determine the lethality of an art, one should look at the techniques being practiced. All Shaolin Kung Fu Suit do forms have neck, knee, and elbow breaks. They utilize strikes to vital areas (pressure points) and teach multiple attacker strategies. In order to survive a multiple attacker situation, every blow must be capable of completely disabling a person. That ability only comes from iron bone (palm, shin, forearm, etc.) training, great strength (internal and external), and a complete knowledge of the human anatomical weak points. Compare this to many of the competition and sport oriented martial arts so popular today.
Stance training is perhaps the most fundamental type of training for almost all forms of martial arts. Our training also places a great deal of emphasis on acquiring the appropriate feeling of balance and stability.
