This sword play was created and passed on by Bodhidharma, the first Indian monk who came to the Shaolin Temple (where he established and preached Zen Buddhism). Zen means meditation. This sword is performed as if sitting in meditation. Attacks are hidden and produced in stillness. You should take every opportunity to attack suddenly. In real combat, you should repeat the use of chopping or thrusting, keeping still, driving your force to the tip of the sword, and focusing your attention as if you were in meditation. The most frequently used techniques are swinging in figure-eight pattern, thrusting, clouding, and chopping.
