There is a misconception that the beauty and elegance of kung fu forms are ineffective for fighting. The techniques in forms were developed by Shaolin monks and kung fu masters to give practitioners a way of training their precision and fluidity of transition in combat. It is very important for students to keep in mind the application of every technique while they are doing their forms routines in order to develop and improve their fighting skills. Kung fu forms are the perfect platform of balance between ‘Martial’ (military) and ‘Art’.
