Is Wushu Kung Fu? Not Really

"Wushu" is the term for the physical part of kung fu that we all know about. However there is more to this "Chinese martial art" than the physical aspect. Kung fu is steeped in centuries of tradition and ancient Chinese philosophy.

It can involve various martial arts traditions including fighting and weapon use, but also exercise, healing and meditation.

Most oftodays American kung fu schools do not practice the wushu style of kung fu. Since it is very flambouyant and flashy. Most of todays American schools like the aggressive or crcular styles of Souther kung fu. 30.gif

They typically are known for their Manchurain outfits that look like this one here. However some studios will wear a karate type of uniform.
