Su Kong Tai Djin was born in China in 1849. The legend says that a traveling Shaolin monk discovered the child abandoned by his parents in the forest, and took him back to the Fukien Shaolin Temple. Tai Djin was raised by the monks and trained in martial arts. It is said that he mastered over 200 different empty hand systems and over 140 weapon systems. His various specialties included the infamous Chi Ma, or ‘Death Touch’. After several years of extensive training he became the first Grandmaster of Shaolin-Do and one of the first to master all skills of the seven Shaolin temples.
