Bodhidharma was a South Indian prince who became a Monk and went to China over 1500 years ago.  He taught ways to strengthen one’s body through certain intense exercises.  These exercises and regimen arose from his knowledge and understanding of Indian martial arts – including Kalaripayattu.

This documentary illustrates some of the forms extremely well.  Absolutely mindblowing!
