Externally there probably isn't much difference. Shaolin is just famous for its martial arts history, that's all.

Son Goku,

There is no "regular" kung fu. What style do you practice? Maybe you allready do a Shaolin style. Shaolin is more of a categorey than a style.

If you practice Shaolin regularly, it will keep you regular :D

Do you mean to say that I'll be fightin' "brown"?

Only if you are as regular as Shaolin kung fu :D

Short answer would be that "Shaolin" integrates Chan Buddhism with the gung fu. Stylistically, there are so many overlaps, sharings, evolutions, and derivatives of the styles that the stylistic dividing lines are impossible to define.

Never heard so much jiberish in all my life. Now I know why no one comes to this forum as much as the general forum.
