It combines characteristics of all forms of martial arts and is grounded in ancient concepts of health and spiritual development. With an accompanying instructional DVD that demonstrates a key practice, it is the perfect introduction for newcomers, as well as anyone interested in martial traditions more generally. It also provides useful practice tips and cultural insights for seasoned Shaolin quan practitioners.
