Shaolin Quan or Shaolin Kung Fu (Chinese: 少林功夫; pinyin: shao lin gong fu), also called Shaolin Wushu (Chinese: 少林武术; pinyin: shao lin wu shu) or simply Shaolin quan(Chinese: 少林拳)
Is one of the oldest and most famous martial arts. Shaolin kung fu originated and was gradually developed in the Buddhist Shaolin temple in Songshan mountain, Henan province, China. Shaolin kung fu has various barehanded and weapon styles, every style with a few routines for health and fight. Shaolin is considered the biggest school of kung fu.
