Shaolin Monks

A Shaolin monk was also known as the ultimate kung-fu killing machine that originated in China. Around the time of their existence (year 651), China was in the state of chaos. Warlords fought among themselves, and not even the emperor was safe. During one of the battles, the prince was captured. The monks who discovered what happened, swore to save him. Notwithstanding their peacefulness, they did know a hundred ways to kill a man. They were the Shaolin, masters of the deadly art of kung fu. In the 7th century, the Shaolin Monastery in central China became known as the place of hardest training of body and mind ever imagined. The students would wait outside the temple for days until at least two of them would be accepted in for “training”. One among them who deserved to be trained was also Fu Sheng. It was said that a Shaolin like him could kill a man using nothing but his palm.
