Zen Buddhism was created by Bodhidharma from India. When Bodhidharma retired at the Shaolin Temple, he passed on his Indian Kung Fu, Kalaripayattu, to his Disciple, Hui Ke. This Kung Fu Buddhism was known as "Chan Buddhism" in China. When the Japanese monks came to the Shaolin Temple, they renamed it "Zen Buddhism" after returning to Japan. Japanese temples were not allowed martial arts with their Buddhism.
