    This unique study of the genesis and development of the earliest form of

    Buddhist self-defense practiced by Chuan Fa monks and mystics shows both

    the philosophical and physical basis of the skills developed and passed on

    to subsequent generations. This book seeks to reunite these concepts. Its

    teaching draws equally on the practices of North Chinese Chaan Movement

    Meditation Traditions and on the South Chinese Esoteric (Mi Chiao)

    School--both secret traditions rarely revealed to the general public. The

    material is presented so readers can understand that what we think of as a

    competitive sport is really a meditation mandala in action. Extensive

    appendices list the main Chinese dynasties, a chronology of Buddhist

    Sutras, a chronological record of scriptures, teachers, events during 1000

    years of Indian and Chinese Buddhism, and translations of Bodhidharma's

    texts including The Six Gates, Entering the Buddha's Path, and the treatise

    upon the Bloodline Teaching of True Dharma.
