What is WUshu 武术?
Wu Shu means Martial Art in Chinese. It is often referred as Kung Fu or Gong Fu 功夫 and originated in China thousands of years ago. Wu Shu has low stances, strong punches, high kicks, and beautiful jumps. Practicioners do routines using weapons such as with a staff 棍术, a straightsword 剑术, a broadsword 刀术, a spear 枪术, nunchucks, fan, and so much more. To do well in Wu Shu, your body needs to be flexible and strong; you also need to practice consistently; you also need to be sharp in your mind to remember the details of the complex routines. You've seen wushu in many movies including Kung Fu Panda, Marvel, Star Wars, Matrix, Jackie Chan movies, Donnie Yen movies, and Bruce Lee movies. Join our Wushu Family today!
