All those incredible stories about Shaolin monks are not only fictional tales. It takes incredible skills, persistent devotion, and years of training to get to the point where the mind and the body are trained to such level that they work in unison, presenting amazing strength and determination. A Shaolin monk trains perseverance, balance and endurance starting from the mind. It is their belief that it all starts in the brain – what the mind pictures, the body can execute. Shaolin monks use thousands of years of accumulated knowledge from ancient China. The medical skills of old Chinese practitioners are astonishing – when the brain cells and the souls are sufficiently trained, the body can only follow.
