    About this book

Meihua boxing is ranked among the best routines for pugilistic training of the Shaolin School of traditional Chinese martial arts, because this routine calls for a very limited size of training venue, is strongly militancy-boosting, and features neatness and toughness of its every move. Therefore this routine is deemed particularly fit for juveniles. According to the Reverend Buddhist Monk Shi Degen, a 'kung-fu monk' affiliated to Shaolin Buddhist Monastery in Mt. Song, the routine of Meihua was taught only to Buddhist monks religiously affiliated to Shaolin Buddhist Monastery in bygone eras prior to the establishment of the People's Republic of China in 1949. Since he was installed as the monastery's kung-fu coach after 1949, he has been recruiting 'outsiders' to his program of 'Meihua boxing training'. As a result this routine is now immune from its ancient exclusiveness and becomes quite open to the general public. In this connection the Reverend Monk Shi Degen should be acclaimed as having made commendable contribution to preserving and enriching Shaolin kung-fu lore.
