Countless men and women who have heard Shaolin Kung Fu are eager to discover the correct way to punch through a 12 inches thick concrete wall in addition to how to walk on the flat surface of a big river or lake. Allow me to assure you, those are not possible. Those techniques surely have been long lost. Even if those techniques still exist, it would take decades of training as full-time Kung Fu student to reach mastery.

Martial arts like Karate, Judo, and Tai Kwan Do are in fact variants of the techniques that originated from Shaolin Kung Fu. Suffice to say, no other sorts of martial arts in the entire world is as abundant in techniques and as effective as the Shaolin Kung Fu. (To put it simple, Shaolin Kung Fu beats all other martial arts)

He traveled to china from India when he arrived at the Shaolin temple he found a bunch of weak and lazy monks. Since he believed that the true way to enlightenment was through exercise so the story goes.
