Shaolin kungfu is one of the most famous types of wushu (martial arts) in China. It's characterized by the integration of zen and wushu, seeking the unity of "mind and breath", as well as "heart and mind".

After more than 1,500 years of inheritance, Shaolin kung fu has developed into more than 700 sets of routines.

Shaolin Temple, located in Central China's Henan province, is the cradle of Chinese martial arts.
