What is known is that Dharma, a monk from India, was staying at a Shao Lin monastery in China where he taught his students a physical training discipline in order to build strength, endurance andself-defence. This was required to carry out the rigid discipline that was part of their religion and also to protect them from the bandits that lived in their locality. This martial art was 'imported' into Okinawa and was blended with the local fighting techniques of the islands.
