Shaolin Lohan Fighting Techniques Book by Png Chye Khim & Donn Draeger (Preowned)
Sorry, this item is temporarily out of stock.
The style of martial arts described in this book is believed to have developed from a form devised at the Shaolin Temple by the Indian monk Bodhidharma. Called Shih-pa lohan shou (Eighteen Arhat Hands), it was the original Lohan form. Its purpose was to provide monks with exercises that would not only strengthen their bodies and minds but also arm them with a formidable system of self-defense. The authors present the Lohan techniques of south China (as taught by the Hood Khar Pai) in both solo—and partner— practice forms.
