US$ 14.95
The Chinese fighting technique described in this book is believed to have developed from a form devised at the Shaolin Temple by the Indian monk Bodhidharma. Called Shih-pa lohan shou (Eighteen Arhat Hands), it was the original Lohan form. Its purpose was to provide monks with exercises that would not only strengthen their bodies and minds, but also arm them with a formidable system of self-defense. The authors present the Lohan techniques of south China (as taught by the Hood Khar Pai) in both solo- and partner-practice forms.

Intended as a supplement to actual training, this book gives the history of the Shaolin arts and then continues with a detailed explanation of the Lohan form.

Accompanied by almost 30 sketches and over 400 black-and-white photographs, this straightforward introduction to the Lohan system is a must for any serious student of Shaolin techniques.
