    Very good. In fact such art should be taught to children starting early. Makes body strong and confidence stronger. But Kung Fu was derived from kalaripayattu from Kerala.

    Entire Shaolin Kung Fu is only 5% of Kalaripayattu. Kalaripayattu was formed by Shiva himself and passed it to Parshuram
