History of Shaolin-Do
The Shaolin Temples were equivalent to modern day universities. Masters specialized in a particular area of knowledge and skill. These styles were often based on mimicking animal movements in an attempt to capture some of the fighting spirit and methods.
Over the course of time, these movements were codified in kata, or forms allowing the for the transmission of the art from teacher to student.
