A short history
Descriptions of Chinese martial arts can be traced to the Xia Dynasty 夏朝(BC 2205-BC 1806) which existed more than 4000 years ago. The Shaolin Arts has a long and rich heritage going back to the beginning of modern civilization. Chinese historians point to military manuals and documents dated between BC 2698 to AD 220, which prove that between Yellow Emperor Huang-Ti (Huang Di) and Han emperors actively funded the study and refinement of Shaolin Kung Fu.
According to legend, the evolution of Karate began in 520 AD when Bodhidharma 達磨 (Daruma) , Indian Buddhist monk arrived in small forest Shaolin temple. From there it appeared in Okinawa, a Japanese Island. In addition to being the birthplace of Chan (禅 Zen) Buddhism, Shaolin is the first temple that institutionalized Karate. He taught Chan (or Zen) Buddhism to the monks at the Shaolin Temple in Henan province. The monks were not physically capable of withstanding the ascetic practices of his teaching, so he began to teach them exercises based on a fighting system. He introduced a systematized set of exercises designed to strengthen the mind and body, exercises which allegedly marked the beginning of the Shaolin style of temple boxing. Bodhidharma's teachings later became the basis for the majority of Chinese martial arts.
