Originated in China,wushu is time-honored, rich in content and diversified in forms.In its age-long process of development wushu has been referred to as martial arts, "guoshu",as well as "gongfu" in some areas. The origin of wushu can be traced back to the early activities of the ancestors of the Chinese people who struggled hard for survival.During the prolonged cold weaponry age wushu was employed by the army to subdue the enemy,practiced by the ordinary people as a means for self-defense and physical training,as well as for a cheerful life.During the process of its gradual improvement and development in modern times,wushu has been basically separated from military skills.With attack and defense as its basic movements and the Chinese traditional culture as its background,wushu has become a sports event which includes taolu and sanshou disciplines.
