Best Answer

First used by the Liang Dynasty in the 6th Century AD, Kung-Fu was developed to create and strengthen the link between mind and body (oringinally). Roughly 200 years later, two Chinese fighters expanded on the original moves to convert it into the fighting style we know today.

Interesting note: The term "Kung-Fu" was not used to describe this fighting style until the mid 1800's, and didn't enter mainstream vocabulary until the release of Bruce Lee's movie Kung-Fu in the 1960's.
