To put things simply, contemporary wushu is the modernised version of traditional Shaolin kung fu. It is a modern day sport / martial art rooted firmly in the ancient martial and cultural arts of China. Wu translates as war or military, shu translates as arts or skills. Therefore‚ wushu means martial arts.
