Shaolin Kung Fu Legend

Legend holds that Shaolin Kung Fu originated around 527 A.D. when Bodhidharma left the court of the Lang emperor Wu. For nine years Bodhidharma faced a wall at the Shaolin temple and, it was said, he developed the ability to hear the ants walking.

He left behind a chest with two books that the monks there found: the "Marrow Cleansing Classic" and the "Muscle Change Classic." The second of these is rumored to contain the doctrines that gave the Shaolin monks the abilities that brought them to greatness.
