This is “Lonnie’s Blog, Blog #5, titled, “Shaolin Kongfu, a Moorish History Rabbit Hole.” This Blog is for lovers of Moorish History and Moorish Culture, in particular, the Martial Art, Kongfu, as well as always, Administrative Law.

The subject of Kongfu, Moors, Africans, and the Buddha Da Moor Bey born c. fifth century of the Christian Calendar (Cc) is a huge first step down a Rabbit Hole to Moorish History and Moorish Culture. Da Moor Bey is the Buddha of Shaolin Temple, Founder of Shaolin Temple, Shaolin Martial Arts and Chan, or Cha’an Buddhism. Buddha Da Moor Bey. Let. That. Sink. In.

Paintings on Shaolin Temple walls depict Da Moor as a tall, large, very dark-skin man teaching people how to kill. For respect and education, every practitioner of Shaolin Kongfu must know these simple things.

Da Moor taught a Martial Art from the People of His mother, Princess Bey, and called it The 18 Moor Hands and The 18 Moor Tricks. Some pupils and disciples of Shaolin Martial Arts are taught to say 18 Arhat, or Arahat Hands, or 18 Lohan Hands, or Tricks. However, Arhat and Lohan came generations after Da Moor, so pupils of Shaolin, Five-Animal System, Five Family System, Hung-Gar, and H-sing I, for examples, benefit from knowing that the Kongfu of Da Moor should respectfully be refereed to as 18 Moor-Hands, 18 Moor-Tricks, Moor-Hand Kongfu, or Da Moor Bey Kongfu. There is also a lineage of Da Moor Kongfu called Buddha Fist.

Da Moor’s mother, Princess Bey, married King Sigundha of Hindustan. Princess Bey was a Moor from a powerful Family, perhaps with more finances than those of King Sigundha. Therefore, though her son, Da Moor, was not the King’s First Son and would not become King, as His Mother’s First Son, Da Moor become greater than King. He became Buddha and created powerful mindsets, religions, and cultures, still prominent, some of which I will share presently.

Under the pretext of transcribing Buddhists Sanskrit scrolls into Chinese Kanji for the monks in what was to become Shaolin Temple, Da Moor Bey was invited to China by Emperor Shao Yan Bey Of House Ming Bey c. 464-549 Cc, also known as Liang Bey of House Liang Bey, Emperor Liang Of the Liang Dynasty c. 502-57 Cc, and after death as Wu Of Liang, the BLACK EMPEROR GOD XUAN WU BEY and WU TSI, Patron of He Bey, Manchuria, And Mongolia. Shoa Yan Bey helped Da Moor to become revered as Buddha within Da Moor’s own lifetime.

Da Moor’s mission seems to have been to spread Moorish Martial Arts, because, along the way to China from Hindustan, which took years, Da Moor seems to have taught Moorish Martial Arts to several Peoples. Da Moor is the claimed origins of some Los Moros (The Moors) and Moslem forms of Martial Arts, for example, in the Philippines, known to Indigenous Peoples as Los Mooralikas, and the Martial Arts maybe not called Kongfu, but called Kali, after KALI, the BLACK GOD OF CREATION, WAR, DEATH, AND ETERNITY with only one thirst and one hunger, to viciously and mercilessly slaughter the enemy. Da Moor’s Martial Arts influenced the Martial arts of Burma, Cambodia, Thai Land, Viet Nam, Laos, and Tibet, as well as those of China and Japan, which will be this Lonnie’s Bog’s last stop down the Rabbit Hole.

Arriving to China under the pretext of transcribing Buddhist texts, which Da Moor actually did, ultimately His mission to strengthen the armies of Shao Yan Bey, fit well with His goal to spread Moorish Martial Arts. Nevertheless, Da Moor’s challenge to create an army was unique in that He was tasked with turning Buddhists into warriors and killers. The problem was that Buddhists, by practice, are so peaceful as to not harm any living thing, so they wouldn’t attack, or even defend others, or themselves. With Psychology, Da Moor Bey grafted and perfected a warrior system from a psychology, an actual religion that was based on peace. Combatively, this philosophy serves practitioners of Kongfu well.

When Da Moor finally reached China, He found that the Black Hors e Temple in Bey, China was not yet ready, so He settled at the Black Serpent Temple in Guangdong, in the south.

The physical part of Da Moor’s challenge involved instilling routines to strengthen and prepare bodies for Kongfu training. The psychological part of Da Moor’s mission, getting Buddhist monks to fight and even to kill, was more challenging. Legend says that in order to accomplish His mission, Da Moor meditated facing a wall for five years and that His intense concentration from the weight of his shadow bore a hole into the wall, which resembles the impression of His body.

Today’s monks admit that they themselves bore the so-called ‘shadow hole’ into the wall with tools for tourists just about 80 years ago and that Da Moor was mostly alone during His years at the Black Serpent Temple. However, top Disciples, such as Her Highness Liang Ming Bey, daughter of Shao Yan Bey, as well as Shao Yan Bey Himself, were permitted to spend private time with Da Moor. I suspect Princess Bey, the daughter of Shao Yan Bey, spent plenty of quality time with big ol’ Da Moor, because she founded her own temple and with the Da Moor Sword, also known as the Dragon Sword, Princess Bey became a legend for being flawless.

Da Moor remained at The Black Serpent Temple in Guangdong for nine years and His solution to the question, How to turn Buddhists into warriors is with His added Buddhist Principle, “One may harm one who harms, or threatens harm,” and that stretched to protecting self and others’ physical bodies, lands, and treasures. This is why Da Moor’s Kongfu is based on counter-attacking and Shaolin training includes taunting and provocation techniques.

It’s fitting that a Moor warrior has this history to share. I grew up fighting from Texas, through Oklahoma and in Cleveland and East Cleveland in particular. People around right now will tell you about my Kongfu from the time I was a small child. The idea that my Kongfu was good made me more apt to research Kongfu History. It’s that thing where when we discover we’re good at something, we want to get better. We fill we can.

Da Moor was a Moor. His mother was a Bey. China is full of Beys. For example, the Capitol of China is Beyjing, as well there are Hebey, Hubey, and the entire North of China is actually called, Bey.

I approached all learning, as I approach everyone, the way I continue to behave from Kongfu Culture, which is with respect. Therefore, with respect to those whom I know as Tsong Hua Rén, I now inform my readers, that the words China and Chinese are Christian/public education constructs, which do not exist among the People, whom the publicly-educated refer to as Chinese, China, or Chino. The Land of these People is, by these People, is called, Tsong Hua. And the People of Tsong Hua refer to themselves and Tsong Hua Rén. Reader, you don’t know this stuff? Have you been disrespecting? Don’t feel bad. It’s public education’s fault. Now what’s the excuses of Tsong Hua Rén for not demanding respect? I bet the fact that they’re educated not to and to just try to fit in with others has something to do with it. In America, Chinese, Japanese, add Filipino Peoples, for example, may seem sort of like they’re living in the Disney Land of other’s minds who see them like Pluto, Goofy, or Daffy as opposed to who they are, which may be Tsong Hua Rén, Los Moros, or Nihonjin, which we’re getting to.

Da Moor’s Buddhism is Da Moor’s Buddhism, the Buddhism of Shaolin Temple. However, today, Da Moor’s Buddhism is better known as Chan, or Cha’an Buddhism.

Da Moor’s Buddhism has the simple belief to be healthy and smart, which means daily maintenance of healthy body, mind, and spirit. However, focus and purpose in Da Moor Buddhism is on combat, because Da Moor’s mission and religion is one of war, so all of the rigorous daily exercise is for the sole purpose of being able to kill first and last and what’s more important to Emperor Shao Yan Bey, on command. Chan, or Cha’an translates to The Self Law, a Principle of Moorish Science.

Further down the Rabbit Hole if you want to

Japan. Let’s begin this path on the right foot. There is no such thing as Japan to the People whom the Western publicly-educated have been told are Japanese. The lands that the publicly-educated people know as Japan is Nihon. If we want to show respect and knowledge of culture, we say, Nihon. The People of Nihon refer to themselves as Nihonjin and to their language as Nihongo. If we want to show respect, we say Nihonjin and Nihongo. For the lay people, the commoners, the publicly-educated, those without certain education, we say, Japan.

The oldest People of Nihon and still there are Moors with afros who refer to themselves as Aino, or Ainu, which is to say the People of ANO, or ANU.

I think is more than coincidence that ANO, or ANU is the oldest Somoorian (Christian-written, Sumerian) GOD. Also, the ‘ongo’ portion of Nihongo may relate to Ano, the People and GOD. I write everyone’s GOD’s name in all caps so as to show respect as equals. Notice that I do not write Da Moor in all caps, even though Da Moor was a Buddha and that’s because Buddha, or the Buddhas are not GODS.

In Japan are Samoorai. Translating from the Nihongo language, there exists no differences between Moor and Mur, as in Samoorai and Samurai, the warrior class of Nihon/Japan. Samoorai gives the sound, Sam Moor I.

In the sixth century Cc, Moorman, Bey Gee [Baekje] introduced Buddhism to Nihon. The construct of the name, Bey Gee, shows Family name first, then personal name, a cultural practice that reminds to show respect and value of the social principle, Family First. Once upon a time, I won a bet over the movie, “Ninja Turtles” when a stubborn pupil of mine insisted Omato was the first name of the character Omato Yoshi, the master teacher of the rat, Splinter. Yoshi is a common Nihon personal name. Omato is his Family Name. So for Christian/Western comprehension, if he had to fill out a form in America for first name first, last name last, he would write, Yoshi Omato.

About 600 years after Bey Gee, in the 12th century Cc, Moorman, Eisai Bey introduced Da Moor Bey’s Buddhism to Nihon, the single act responsible for the creation of Zen Buddhism and The Codes of Bushido, which is the way of the Samoorai, which means Moor Warrior Servants, or Servants of Moors. Zen, like Chan, or Cha’an,  also translates to, The Self-Law Of I.

What the Samoorai did with DaMoor’s Buddhism is take the Chan, or Cha’an Principle of, ‘One may do harm to those trying to do harm,’ and created the Principle, “One who stands in the way commits an act of war,” and further, “One who stands in the way of whom I’m trying to kill commits an act of war,” as well as, “Vengeance is Justice.”

So one who merely stands in the way and reasons, like, “Hey, buddy, can we just talk this out,” commits an act of war, and may therefore, be attacked cruelly for vengeance and still be within the moral confines of Da Moor’s Buddhism, if one calls it Zen.

The First Samoorai is the Moor, Sakanoye Takamoora c. 758-811 Cc, 500 years before Japan’s great Mooramachi Period c. 1336- 1573 Cc.

The Last Samoorai is the Moor, Beykufu Takamoori Of House Bey 1828-77 Cc, born Saigō Kokichi. He rose to the highest Samoorai ranks and a Bey House honored and rewarded him with the personal title Takamoori and the military title, Beykufu, which is the Samoorai government of lands and households. The titles, Shogun and Daiymio are Christian constructs that Nihonjin do not use. There never was a Shogun or a Shogunate.

One more step down the Rabbit Hole?

Kongfu Bey c. 551-479 BCc, also know as Kongfu Tsi, and Master Kongfu Bey is the man, Christians and the publicly-educated refer to as Confucius, whom is evidenced in art as a woolly-haired, dark Moor philosopher. Tsi, Tse, Tzu, and Zu, for example, all mean Bey.

Shaolin has a class structure based on Tsi. For example, Tsifu means Teacher, Tsikong means Master, Tsitaikong means Grandmaster, and Tsidi is the name of the Disciple Class. For further education, below the Disciple Class are Pupils, or those who may one day become war students and learn combat, or not. Students are trusted with menial tasks in certain areas and permitted to study disciplines other than combat, such as math, horticulture, languages, and writing, for example.

For the record, Kongfu Bey/Confucius was not a Buddhist. He was a Taoist, meaning a follower of the teachings of Royal Court Moor Astrologer, Latromathematician, and perhaps author of The Tao Te Ching, LAO BEY c. 600 BCc [LAO TSI/TSE/TZU], a man with skin dark like jasper ( who lived during Zhou Dynasty c. 1046-256 BCc.

Thus, I ask you, my readers, listeners, and participants, in Administrative Law, does a case exists for Moors being a force in Martial Arts and Cultures of the world? These things and more I learned from Grandpa, Marvin Young Bray EL, my father’s father and a fes-wearing dark-skin Moor. This is the part of The Moor Empire I leave you with, down what is referred to as the Rabbit Hole.
