Quanzhou is the birth place of Southern Shaolin martial art. Started from Jin and Tang Dynasties, and thrived in Song Dynasty, the Southern Shaolin martial art has been spread worldwide. The Quan Zhou Shaolin Temple as the carrier of Southern Shaolin martial art combines the traditional customs of Quanzhou and also the humanity essence of people of Quanzhou. It spreads with the development of the Maritime Silk Road and becomes an emotional bond between the Quanzhou people overseas and those at home.
