Wu chu chuan (or ngo cho kun in the
dialect) is a traditional, Fujian South Shaolin kung fu style. It can be classified as both external and internal – “external” referring to concentrated striking power (the principle of a one-strike kill), and “internal” referring to the breathing technique used to improve physical health (by stimulating and exercising internal organs).
Wu chu chuan, in the English language, is the Five Ancestors Fist. It is in honor of the best five known martial art styles at that time, which are: the white crane, for its intricate hand techniques; the monkey fist kung fu, for its mobility, agility, dexterity, and many evasive tactics; the Lohan, for its foot work and internal exercises; the Tai Cho, for its leg techniques (including scissor leg attacks and sweeping); and the Da Mo, for its breathing techniques (the basis of iron-body training and of regulating breathing to enhance both stamina and energy).
Wu chu chuan originated in the Chinese
. It is widely practiced, is considered the pride of the province of Fujian people, and has its foundation in the Fujian South Shaolin temple (located in ). Quanzhou, China

, Indonesia , Malaysia , the Singapore , Philippines and with the assistance and cooperation from the Government of China, wu chu chuan was reintroduced in Taiwan , epitomized with the rebuilding and reestablishment of the China South Shaolin temple at its original site in . Quanzhou, China

Union was formed, the main agenda of which was and is to unite all South Shaolin Wu Chu Chuan kung fu families, as well as to promote and preserve the true essence of traditional kung fu.
