Shifu Sumers demonstrating attacking the bear. This is the fundamentals version of Attacking the Bear. Although it may seem like it is an offensive technique, if used in the proper context, it is not. It is purely defensive.

Shou' Shu' is not only an ancient martial art, it is a unique way of human movement. The last known origin of its current form comes from the warring states period. Taught only to the ruling class of the Qin dynasty and their bodyguards. These warriors guarded its secrets closely. The knowledge was instrumental to their survival.

The knowledge passed out of China to Chinese Tong between 1900 and 1910. It landed in Oakland California. The Tong trained young men in this highly sophisticated fighting art. These men used their skills to protect the local merchants. Due to the racism inherent in the time they had no police protection. So they took the protection of their community on themselves. Protection eventually degraded into protection rackets. The Tong established territories. Mafia rule ensued.

Meanwhile, in China, training in the fighting arts was criminalized. It was a threat to the Communist regime. This led to the art, along with all other fighting arts, eliminated from the country. Shou' Shu' was lost in China.

Shou' Shu' was then only possessed by the Tong. The fighting skills it gave then ensured their dominance. They ruled the Bay Area China Towns with an iron fist. Beating out other Tong who fought using other systems.

Although it is unfortunate that it was used for such violence it turned out to be a stroke of luck for Shou' Shu'. Shou' Shu' was the only fighting art that was preserved. It's usefullness led to its preservation.

Shou' Shu' translates as "Beast Magic". It is a natural way of movement based on the motions of 7 animals. The bear, tiger, mongoose, white crane, praying mantis, cobra, and dragon. Each of these systems exists within the grand principle of "Flowing Focussed chi". A principle that is unique to Shou' Shu'.

Shou' Shu' has great benefits physically, emotionally, and mentally to its practitioners. This makes it very worthwhile to preserve for future generations. Practitioners reap rewards far beyond the sef defense aspects.

Asian philosophy says that all things are ephemeral with very few exceptions. One marked exception is bodies of knowledge. Now we have to add blockchain as an exception as well. Blockchain is what Shou' Shu' has been waiting for. The technology needed to preserve it for the benefit of humanity forever.

A very valuable ancient art form preserved by cutting-edge technology. Beautiful!
