Description - Shaolin Kung Fu: The Original Training Techniques of the Shaolin Lohan Masters by Donn F. Draeger

With a new foreword by historian and martial artist Alexander Bennett, Shaolin Kung Fu details the oldest form of this ancient Chinese martial art. Shaolin Kung Fu is prized for its elegant style, effectiveness as a fighting system and as an exercise that benefits both body and mind. Authors Donn F. Draeger and P'ng Chye Khim, both master martial artists and Shaolin experts, focus on the Lohan technique-believed to have developed from a form devised at the legendary Shaolin Temple some 1,500 years ago.

This comprehensive book offers a practical introduction, including:

  • The history and fundamentals of Shaolin Kung Fu
  • The fundamentals of Shaolin
  • A complete description of the Lohan technique and how to master it
  • Detailed Shaolin training methods, including the use of weapons
  • Weapons used in Shaolin
This book is intended as a supplement to a dedicated training program and includes detailed instructions explaining both the solo and partner practice forms. Accompanied by over 400 photos and sketches, this excellent introduction to the Lohan form is a must-have for every serious student of Shaolin and Kung Fu.

Shaolin Kung Fu was intended to provide Buddhist monks in ancient China with an art that would not only act as an intense conditioning tool, but also arm them with a formidable system of self defense. Though the context for these skills has changed, modern readers can benefit from this method in much the same way as its original students.
