Bodhidharma is traditionally credited as the leading patriarch and transmitter of Zen (Chinese: Chn, Sanskrit: Dhyna) to China. According to Chinese legend, he also began the physical training of the Shaolin monks that led to the creation of Shaolinquan. However, martial arts historians have shown this legend stems from a 17th century qigong manual known as the Yijin Jing.

Kung fu - kung meaning energy and fu meaning time - is a Chinese martial art whose recorded history dates back to around 525 AD, during the Liang dynasty. The man credited with introducing martial arts to China is said to be an Indian monk known as Bodhidarma (who is also known as Do Ma or Buddha, 506556 AD).
