In this volume of the Encyclopedia, the monk Aguilar presents us with a very little known aspect of the Shaolin Art: combat at short distance and Grappling. Different from other Arts, Shaolin thinks of combat in terms of absolutes, basing their training on the execution of the Tao Lu forms, constant capturing movements and hand-to-hand work. To flow like the wind, to develop patience, to study the adversary without provoking him, to decrease friction in order to adapt oneself to the enemy, to develop strength in the forearms, to train capture and retention, and especially to remain relaxed and let oneself be led, these are the key factors for the success of the fight.
