What is WUSHU?

Wushu (武术; pinyin: wǔshù) literally means "martial art". It is the correct term for the more commonly known but misused term kung fu, which roughly translates to skill and refers specifically to the energy, feeling and effort expended in doing or making something. A craftsman or artisan could be said to have good kung fu in the way in which they carry out their craft. In the same way, a wushu practitioner can also be said to have good kung fu.

——————————————————-

The sport of wushu is a system of fighting techniques that incorporate routine exercises and free-sparring aimed to promote health, strengthen will power and refine combat skills.

Millions of people around the world practice wushu today. While wushu previously trained people for war, today it is a popular way of improving your physical fitness, concentration and self-control. It requires practitioners to develop both their bodies and minds.

Almost anyone can benefit from exercising wushu. Whether you are young or old, strong or weak, wushu can help you keep fit. Practitioners are required to develop speed, quickness and agility while fast and powerful strikes demand stamina 
and concentration.

According to one Chinese legend, people in ancient times needed to defend themselves from a dangerous environment and enemy tribes. To learn how, the Chinese imitated nature. They learned how to protect themselves by observing the stillness of mountains and the flow of rivers. They also adopted movements from animals. 

Every region of ancient China had its own fighting form. Eventually early martial artists added the use of weapons, such as knives, swords and spears. In the 5th century, a Buddhist monk from India traveled to China. He stayed in the Shaolin Temple and did research on Buddhism. Legends said that the monk not only taught religious philosophy, but was also concerned about the health of his student monks. To strengthen the monks, he taught them stretching exercises. These exercises reminded the Chinese monks of the fighting forms they learned as children. A group of monks then developed movements that served as the core of Chinese martial arts. This was considered as the origin of formalized training in wushu.
