Literally means "Arhat
boxing". The traditional story of its creation states that it was created by
monks in the Shaolin Temple, by observing and imitating the forms and
expressions of each Arhat Statue in the temple. Through meditation and
practice, they created a form called "eighteen hand movements of Arhat",
which consisted of eighteen combat skills and techniques. Through this, 24
new movements were then created for advancing and retreating during combat.
Arhat Boxing or Luohan Quan has in total 108 different movements; from six
different forms of fist movements, two forms of palm movements, four forms
of locking and grappling.
