  • Ah, that's a really interesting and good angle with the Bone Gnawers, I hadn't considered that! Thanks for pointing that out

Xingyiquan is mainly based on the 5 elements of Taoism.

    Shaolin and animal styles are pretty much all based on Zen Buddhism, and so are many Japanese martial arts, most notably Aikido and Kendo.

    The film Hero is based on the...

  • Interchangeable. Until relatively recently, the major translation system for Mandarin Chinese to English was Wade Giles, which spelled it "Taoism." Now the most common system is Pinyin, which spells it "Daoism." Other examples: Peking vs. Beijing, Tai Chi Chuan vs Taijiquan, etc....
