Chinese People Know Kung Fu and can Bust a Few Moves
   2015-09-19 09:33:27    CRIENGLISH.com      Web Editor: Liu Ranran

 

We¡¯ve all heard of Kung Fu masters Bruce Lee, Jet Lee and Jackie Chan. So if we know those three, the Chinese must know a lot more, right?

Well, while they could maybe add Donnie Yen, Wu Jing, Sammo Hung, and Kung Fu Panda to the list, but when it comes to the average Chinese person busting a few Kung Fu moves, forget it!

According to legend, Chinese martial arts originated over 4000 years ago. One of the earliest mentions of Shaolin Kung Fu is from the 7th century when it was used to defend the Shaolin Monastery.

Today, many forms of Chinese Kung Fu are based on the northern kick and jump style, and the southern fist and punch style.
