The Boxer Rebellions
Meanwhile, yet another rebellion was brewing to rid China of the ‘foreign devils’!
It was led by a group called ‘Fists of Righteous Harmony’
- Used a combination of meditation and martial arts
- Which led to the nickname ‘boxers’
It was a reactionary movement that spurned the modern weapons as the devil’s weapons
- They preferred to use traditional weapons
- But not always! Still used guns
- They were supposed to be fortified by a spell that would make them invulnerable to western bullets.
