The term Wushu encompasses all of Chinese martial arts, which is composed of an enormous range of martial styles and philosophies. While Wushu has developed sophisticated systems over its 2000 year history, it has recently gained international appeal in its "contemporary" form. Contemporary Wushu refers to a conglomerate of many traditional styles and their transformation into a competitive sport with standardized rules and judging.
