Jackie and the group,
I wish I could full incorporate Mooshin in my Sanchin.
I was told, many years ago, that Bohdidharma, after traveling from India to China to teach Zen Bhudhism, did movements and breathing techniques, to keep the attention of his audience. Those movements and techniques were the foundation for Sanchin.
How true this is may be the subject of historical debate.
I can remember that I was visiting the Metropolitan Museum in Manhattan, circa 1973, and saw a minature display in a long glass show case, a scene entitled "Bohdidharma crossing the Yangtze River" (I hope I am correct in the river).
I dervied from that scene, reading his acreditation as a source or antecedent to martial arts in many styles, set forth in many publications, my belief in the importance of this man.
