72 secret arts of the monks of the Shaolin monastery

The 72 Secret Arts of Shaolin are methods of preparing the body and mind for action in extreme conditions (first of all, in real-life hand-to-hand combat conditions). If you train only melee techniques and don’t pay attention to special training, you will never achieve the highest mastery and your movements will lack real strength. “The fists are like flowers, and the legs are like embroidery needles,” the old masters laugh at such “techniques.” The 72 Arts of Shaolin are the basis for the highest mastery in all styles of Kung Fu.

“Seventy-two precious arts are kept in a brocade bag, kept as a great treasure. Eighteen of them are the essence of the famous treatises on pugilistic arts. Other eighteen arts describe in detail training methods with the use of special tools and training equipment.Wonderful methods to achieve chi-breath flexibility, exercises to obtain hardness and lightness, tightening methods are written with the blood of monks in books that are kept like a treasure in the brocade bag.One you can rarely find those who really want to exercise zealously: to become a true hero, one must often feel the bitter taste of hard work.” /Secret treatises of Shaolin on the pugilistic art/

Seventy-two types of Shaolin Arts represent an example of the personal experience of the monks of the Shaolin Monastery in the Songshan Mountains. This experience was gained through hard exercises in combat arts for many ages. The best examples of those seventy-two arts are such effective methods as qi gong (chi kung), chi breathing exercises, exercises to obtain ying gong hardness and qing gong lightness, dian xue acupuncture point massage, qin tightening arts na (chin na), the art of placing dislocations and bones and others.

“In all the practices of the Seventy-two Arts, the basic theory is studied first and only then are the exercises done. At first those who practice the arts train the softness of their sinews and bones and try to make all their joints and joints agile. Then they set the main breath ZONG LI in motion, strengthen the internal organs FU, improve the state of the blood, consolidate the strength of the body, control the cinnabar field and concentrate the energy in it, exceed your wishes and requirements a hundred joints and joints , now a fighter is Commanding unlimited power and can move a thousand jins. Your arm that weighs only ten jins can move a thing that weighs ten thousand jins with one blow. Your arms are a head, your legs are a tail. Everything is imbued with a single movement, the body moves like a dragon The masters said: “Shaolin exercises develop forces of the entire human organism, all joints and bones; you are able to strike with all parts of your body” . There is one more saying: “The fist is the source of all arts and the leg is the base, the root of the fist.” Ordinary boxing practice consists of seventy percent leg training and thirty percent fist training. If you acquire pugilism, you can use eighteen types of weapons. If you resort to all the tricks of pugilism, you can fight against ten thousand fighters.” /Shaolin secret treatises on the art of pugilism/
