Shaolin Warriors come to Marin Center
The Shaolin warrior-monks are descendants of the Dravidians of India, specifically of Bodhi Dharma, founder of the Shaolin monastery in China in A.D. 525, nearly 1500 years ago. ..---Held in great esteem for their disciplined spiritualism and deadly martial arts prowess, the Shaolin monks practice a non-violent and non-aggressive philosophy of Buddhism, thus, the demonstrations of Shaolin fighting techniques should not be viewed as anything other than techniques uniquely designed for protection...---Bodhi-dharma, who was reputed to have developed the Shaolin system of self-defense, modeled his techniques upon the defensive and offensive movements of the animals living near the Shaolin monastery...--Soon, the order of Shaolin monks, who called their system of fighting wushu became famous far and wide for 'being a brand of Buddhists that one would be unwise to provoke.'
