The Essence of Wushu

The English translation for Wushu as “The Art of War” is somewhat misleading.  It does not capture the true essence made evident when we understand the Chinese characters for Wushu.

Our Chinese ancestors put profound thought into making the characters to represent Wushu.

 

Wu is a combination of two characters, each meaning: to stop and conflicts.

Shu is a combination of three characters, each meaning: people, the main path (path of truth), and walking in a small steps.  

People + walking in small steps means journey

Wushu is a journey, a study of how to stop conflict that requires time, effort, and a commitment to deep learning one step at a time.

 

Conflicts in our modern world are often more mental than physical. The Wushu student prepares for both, learning self-discipline while forging a solid character, strong body, and strong mind.
