Medicine in the tradition of the Shaolin monks

Chinese medicine has been handed down over the ages in two ways: On the one hand it is based on the manuscripts of physicians at the Imperial Court and on the other hand on knowledge passed by word of mouth from the master to his students. This was common above all amongst travelling physicians and in the kung fu schools. 

My training is based on both these traditions. The foundation for the three-year training course I completed at ABZ Mitte in Offenbach is the written accounts. The Shaolin Wahnam tradition practises the oral transmission of knowledge from the master to the student. 

One skill in which a kung fu teacher has always been proficient is the treatment of injuries that can occur during sparring. The lineage of the Shaolin Wahnam Institute includes kung fu master Yang Fatt Khun, who in his younger years journeyed around as a travelling healer. Although he gave up this activity at his master’s request in order to devote himself entirely to kung fu, practising medicine has remained a tradition in his lineage up until today.
