Can anyone accurately describe the original set, and who created it?

I have seen two theorys, one is that DA Mo created it, and the other says the 18 Louhans did around the time the Louhan style was developed and it was "based" on Ta Mo's teachings.

I'm guessing the second is most accurate, but I'd like other's opinions.

Also, does anyone know of any good videos or books on this set. I'm also looking for stuff on Ta Mo's Yi Jing Jing and Su Xue Jing too.

One source of info may be Master The of the Shaolin-Do school of martial arts. I was once a student of there's in Georgia. Look up shaolin-do or Chinese Shaolin center. They purport to teach both the Yi Jin Jing and the 18 Lohan Form. Perhaps a student (blackbelt material- i never made it that far) or teacher may be able to provide you with more info or references.

Venerable Shi Goulin of the Shaolin Temple in New York has also produced a great video detailing a Qi-Gong set he calls Yi Jin Jing as well. It's good, but totally different from what I was shown by the shaolin-do instructor. My first instinct would be to go with the Shaolin Monk! But for a grain of salt, I know even the monks have been heavily influenced by the Qi Gong and Wu Shu craze that has swept China in the last generation. Hope this helps!
