Kung Fu, Wushu, and Chinese Martial Arts are all general terms used to describe a set of several hundred fighting styles that have developed over thousands of years of Chinese history. Variations in philosophy, form, origin, and practice divide these fighting styles into various schools that continue to attract followers throughout China and around the world today.
