Wushu is Chinese for ‘martial arts’, and is both an exhibition and a full-contact sport. Wushu came to being as a part of a standardization exercise in the practice of traditional Chinese martial arts, after 1949. Wushu is now an international competitive sport with two disciplines: taolu and sanda, which mean form and fight.

 

Taolu involves martial art patterns and exercises as well as basic movements based on collective categories of traditional Chinese martial art styles. These can be changed for competitions to highlight the strengths of the competitor. The time limits for competitive items range from 1 minute, 20 seconds to over five minutes for specific styles. These days, the competitors train in aerial techniques such as jumps and kicks to add complexity and style to their forms.

 

Sanda is a modern fighting sport influenced by traditional boxing, wrestling and grappling techniques. It includes the entire the combat aspects of Wushu. Sanda is like Kickboxing at the first look, but actually includes more grappling techniques. Sanda fighting and taolu form competitions are often held together.

History
The Chinese government undertook to regulate martial arts training under an umbrella organisation in 1958 and a state established commission endeavoured to create standardized forms for most of the major arts. As a result, a Wushu system which had standard forms and curriculum was established and introduced at both the high school and university level in China. The new system incorporated universal elements from all styles and forms and the broad ideas associated with Chinese martial arts.

 

Olympics
The International Wushu Federation’s endeavours to include Wushu as a competition items has not been successful so far. Although the IOC allowed an international Wushu event during the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, it is still not even a demonstration event. The effort to include Wushu in the 2020 Summer Olympics has been rejected.
