W for Wushu in ABC of Sports

Wushu is both an exhibition and a full-contact sport of Chinese
martial arts. Competitive wushu is composed of two disciplines,
taolu (forms) and sanda (sparring)

Taolu involves martial art patterns and maneuvers for which
competitors are judged and given points. The forms comprise
basic movements (kicks, punches, balances, jumps, sweeps
and throws)

Sanda is a modern fighting method and sport influenced by
traditional Chinese boxing, Sanda appears much like kick
boxing but includes many more grappling techniques (Wiki)

A to Z Challenge


  1. I love the grace of martial arts--in all their forms---they really are art!

  2. They could sure whoop my butt using that, heck probably wouldn't even need that haha

  3. I'd never heard of this before. Did it come from the city of Wushu in China?
