Chinese martial arts or Kung Fu is known as Wushu, the generic Mandarin Chinese term. In spite of its apparent focus on fighting and combat skills: kicking, punching, blocking and so on, the true spirit of Wushu is, in fact, to cease the use of weapons and to promote peace, well-being and to live well in harmony. Wushu also covers special ways of inner strength/energy cultivation methods named Daoyin and Qigong (pronounced Chi-gong). It is a system of exercises that utilises natural, gentle movements to help energise the mind and body.
Chinese Wushu has a long history. It is a Chinese national form of martial arts activity. For thousands of years, it has been a sport of bravery, strength, wisdom, and physical fitness.
