Cheena Di

Cheena di (meaning “Chinese Punch”) is an ancient kung fu style in Sri Lanka. It is believed this style was taught to the Sinhalese by Shaolin monks who came to see the Relic of the tooth of the Buddha. It is now rare, as karate, wushu, aikido, jujutsu and judo are the more popular styles in Sri Lanka. It takes 15 years to master the style and teachers still teach using the Orthodox Methods.
