Shaolin Kungfu originated from the ancient Songshan Shaolin Temple and was named after it. Songshan Shaolin Temple is located under Wurufeng of Songshan Shaoshi in Dengfeng County, Henan Province. It was built by Emperor Xiaowen to settle the Indian monk Posta who came to Songshan to preach.

After Master Tu Tuo presided over Shaolin Temple, scholars from all directions heard the wind, and there were hundreds of disciples. In this way, a large number of folk martial artists have served as a mixed service of Shaolin Temple. When the Tuo Tuo presided over the Shaolin Temple, some young children who could learn martial arts or other skills were shaved as young monks in the Shaolin Temple. The monk like Huiguang, when he was twelve years old, kicked the mule on the well rail of Chengtian Street in Luoyang. He was able to kick five hundred times in a row. But Tutu was surprised, so he shaved him as a little monk as his disciple. . Post's disciples and monks were weak and physically weak, often teased by some young monks who could learn martial arts, and later practiced martial arts.

In addition, in the old forest in the mountains, he was to be protected from the beasts and the severe cold and heat. When he passed on the Scriptures, he found that many disciples had been meditating for a long time, drowsiness, and lack of energy. In order to drive away tiredness, prevent beasts, keep fit, and protect the temple, Dharma and others followed the ancient Chinese working people's various physical exercises and organized the "live method" for fitness activities to teach monks. This is the prototype of "Shaolin Boxing".

After a long period of practice by the monks of all dynasties, a set of boxing techniques was gradually formed, reaching more than a hundred kinds. The martial arts were collectively called "Shaolin boxing." They carefully studied the Shaolin boxing methods, paid attention to the organization and teaching of the boxing methods, and developed the "Arhat Eighteen Hands" in Shaolin Boxing to 72 hands, and later to 173 hands. Shaolin Boxing.

In the late Sui and early Tang dynasties, the abbot of Shaolin Temple selected strong, brave and dexterous or boxing fighters from the monks to protect the safety of the temple and organized a special team. Initially, their mission was to protect the temple. Later, the temple monks participated in political activities, and the temple raised monks and soldiers to form monks. The objective situation requires martial arts to develop into superb martial arts, and began organized and strict training of monks and soldiers to practice sticks.
