More than a century ago, Shaolin monk master Yi Jiahai took his kung fu apprentice Li Huabao, who was allegedly son of Li Zicheng, to flee to Guangdong from the burning of Henan’s Shaolin Monastery by the Qing government. They came down the Pearl River in 1863 to today’s Lishan and Hushan villages in Doumen District, where they were treated with great hospitality. The two settled down and instructed kung fu, which was the origin of the Buddhist Boxing in the area.

Li Zicheng was a Chinese rebel leader who overthrew the Ming in 1644 and ruled over China briefly as emperor of the short-lived Shun dynasty before his death a year later.
