I was watching a Chinese action movie and gotten curious about who really started kungfu. Then, when I searched it in the internet, i stumbled to a website and found something really interesting. Bodhidharma or commonly known as Buddha introduced a set of 18 hands exercises he taught these to his disciples in the Shaolin temple believing that the development of a strong body would prevent the disciples from falling asleep during meditation. Doing this exercises daily developed more techniques.Its so funny thinking that from such a reason happened to have one of the strongest form of martial arts in the world.
