THE "EIGHT QUALITIES"
During the performance of a form, there are "Eight Qualities" which are looked for and judged:
3. Body Technique.
According to the 少林寺志 <Shaolin Historical Records>, the Shaolin Temple was built in the 19th year of the reign of Emperor Xiaowen (北魏孝文帝,Taihe) of Northern Wei in 495 AD for the eminent Indian monk, Bada (跋陀 Batuo, Moha, Pao Jaco) and his two Chinese disciples (Weiguang, Weineng). Bada was recognized as a Buddhist scholar in the Hinayana tradition-not as a martial artist. Any reference to the martial abilities of Bada, his students or the Shaolin temple at that time is conjecture at best. The Shaolin tradition recognized their contribution - the inscription 'Saint from the West' (西方圣人) is written on the signboard hung above the Thousand Buddha Hall in the Shaolin Temple.
In Long Fist, the requirements for "Hands" are "fists like shooting stars," which infers that the movements of arms, hands, wrists, and fingers be with a relaxed strength and speed. The motions in Long Fist will be from lightning fast to a sudden, stable halt, and conversely, from motionless to a sudden burst of power. The "Eyes" must be alert and alive, following the hands with lightning speed. One's "Body" or torso, with its central point at the waist, must be agile and lively. The stated traditional requirement is that the "waist behaves like a crawling snake." The "Steps" must be stable and, regardless of how rapid the movements are, the feet must stick to the ground. There is a pertinent traditional saying, "To punch is easier than to walk.
Tai Chi ( pronounced tie chee) Chuan was created by the Chen family of the Honan province and has been passed down from generation to generation for over 600 years. The foundation of Chen Tai Chi Chuan theory on tai chi yin and yang principle means it can be active or passive solid or void. The chen sa chin (silk-cocoon energy) of Chen tai chi circles around the body's meridian like latitudes around the globe. The circulation of chi blends with the open and closed, substantial yet insubstantial chin (inner energy), and is like the longitudes of the globe. These principles are incorporated into the hard yet soft, fast and slow movements of Chen tai chi: the body should be erect, the spirit of the inner energy should reach up to the head, the breath should be natural, and the chi should sink to the tan tien. This fulfills the inner circuit.
The Shaolin Temple (嵩山少林) is the birthplace of the Martial Arts and Zen approach to Buddhism. The original Shaolin temple is located in Mount Song - the central mountain of the "five mountains" of China, near the city of Zhengzhou, Hunan Province. Mount Song is further divided into two mountains: the Taishi and the Shaoshi. The name "Shaolin" was inspired by the lush forest of the Shaoshi Mountain. Another story suggests that the temple was built on a piece of land that had recently been ravaged by fire, because the builders planted many new trees. The temple was thus named Shaolin ("Shao" meaning "young" or "new", and "Lin" meaning "forest"). This monastery played a prominent role in Chinese history. For many periods, it was considerd to be an imperial temple where emperors of the ruling Shaolin Kung Fu would ascend to pray on behalf of the people. However, its fame also brought with it many hardships. During periods of unrest, the temple often become a focus for the imperial wraith and retribution. The temple had been destroyed many times only to be rebuilt one again.
Historically, Shaolin Kung Fu Shirt included some of the best generals, ministers, poets, philosophers, and various famous people. Thus, in Chinese history, the Shaolin Temple was both a focal point and an education center for some of China's elite. It truly represents an important Chinese cultural landmark. The history of the Shaolin Kung Fu Suit is long and controversial, but it is most important to acknowledge its impact on the Chinese population and the Martial Arts. The main time periods in the history of Shaolin are:
Bodhidharma (DA MO) ?摩 is acknowledged as the First Patriarch of Chinese Zen Buddhism and is credited with providing the foundations for the Shaolin martial arts. Although his existence can always be questioned, the following information is generally accepted as historical fact. He was born to a Royal Family in Southern India around the year 440 CE. He studied under Prajnatara, the 27th Patriarch of Indian Buddhism. His teacher gave him the name Bodhidharma, past Mind Transmission on to him, and finally made him the 28th Patriarch. Prajnatara instructed him to transmit Dharma to China, and Bodhidharma traveled east to Guangzhou (Kwang Chou), Southern China, in 528 AD. He was initially honoured and welcomed by the Chinese government and obtained an audience with Emperor Wu Di 梁武帝 of the Liang dynasty. The emperor did not understand the teachings of Bodhidharma and did not retain his services.
