The Miscasting of Martial Arts
Our modern culture has reclassified physical movement disciplines into its own little bucket of definable terms. Leung Ting WingTsun® kung fu is ‘kung fu’ and is not a sport. In fact, it might be more accurate to call it WingTsun wu shu. Kung fu means “hard work – achieving skill” whereas wu shu means “military art” which is more precise description of WingTsun even though Leung Ting WingTsun® is more civilian in nature but uses the military smarts of Sun Tzu, the ancient Chinese general and master strategist.
