Shaolin Kung Fu,also called Shaolin Wushu,or Shaolin quan,is one of the oldest,largest,and most famous styles of wushu,or kung fu of Chan Buddhism. It combines Ch'an philosophy and martial arts and originated and was developed in the Shaolin Temple in Henan province,Greater China during its 1500-year history. Popular sayings in Chinese folklore related to this practice include "All martial arts under heaven originated from Shaolin" and "Shaolin kung fu is the best under heaven," indicating the influence of Shaolin kung fu among martial arts.

Hung Ga (洪家),Hung Kuen (洪拳),or Hung Ga Kuen (洪家拳) is a southern Chinese martial art belonging to the southern Shaolin styles. The hallmarks of Hung Ga are strong stances,notably the horse stance,or "si ping ma" (四平馬),and strong hand techniques,notably the bridge hand and the versatile tiger claw. Traditionally,students spent anywhere from several months to three years in stance training,often sitting only in horse stance from half an hour to several hours at a time,before learning any forms. Each form could then take a year or so to learn,with weapons learned last. In current times,this mode of instruction is generally considered impractical for students,who have other concerns beyond practicing kung fu. However,some instructors still follow traditional guidelines and make stance training the majority of their beginner training. Hung Ga is sometimes mischaracterized as solely external—that is,reliant on brute physical force rather than the cultivation of qi—even though the student advances progressively toward an internal focus.
