Shaolin Kung Fu is believed to be the oldest institutionalized style of Kung Fu and is one of the most famous martial arts, according to Getty. It was created in the Buddhist Shaolin temple in the Songshan mountain in China and has developed over the last 1500 years. It and it’s various forms are marked by both barehanded and weapon styles.
