Traditional Chinese martial arts (also referred to as kung fu), Northern Shaolin originated in the northern regions of China. It is a component of the Shaolin Martial Arts tradition, an extensive lineage that originated at the renowned Shaolin Temple in Henan Province, China.
Northern Shaolin is distinguished by its emphasis on speed, agility, and precision in its acrobatic and dynamic movements. Shaolin practitioners in the North commonly execute an extensive repertoire of maneuvers, such as kicks, punches, sweeps, leaps, and flips. Frequently, the style integrates intricate routines or forms referred to as "taolu," which consist of series of movements performed individually or in a duomic partnership.
Conditioning exercises to develop strength, flexibility, and stamina, along with drills to enhance striking, blocking, and footwork, are customary components of Northern Shaolin training. Weaponry instruction may also be provided by some institutions, including instruction with the spear, staff, sword, or other traditional Chinese weapons.
Its profound philosophical underpinnings, extensive historical significance, and global and Chinese impact on alternative martial arts disciplines all contribute to the notoriety of Northern Shaolin. From novices to experts, martial artists of every age and background engage in its practice.
