World Wushu-Kungfu Day: Kungfu in Everyday Life
August 11, 2018
On August 11, 2018, the first official World Wushu-Kungfu Day (WWKD) was proudly celebrated around the world with great success. From Australia to China, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Hong Kong, Russia, USA, India and South Africa — just to name a few! — wushu clubs, schools and individuals in dozens of countries took part in public demonstrations, parties and other wushu-kungfu themed events. Energy was high, and social media was abuzz with photos, videos and words about wushu-kungfu.
WWKD is celebrated each year on the first Saturday on or following August 8th, and will be accompanied by a theme each time. The details for the debut of WWKD in 2018 are as follows:
