Kung Fu is strongly influenced by Buddhism. The term Kung Fu or 'Gong Fu' in Chinese refers to the achievement and excellence that is obtained through the hard work and dedication of training. Kung Fu is, at heart, the expression of the deep spiritual goals of awakening and perfection. It is this spiritual wisdom that informs its teaching methods and inspires the kind of training and dedicastion that can produce such incredible and seemingly miraculous abilities. For examples, watch this demonstration by the Masters.
