  • 1. Chinese Martial Arts By: Jim LaHart
  • 2.
    • I choose chinese martial arts because it is a big part of China’s culture and a lot of people do that.
  • 3.
    • Martial arts is also called Wushu
    • It was created and developed for self-defense and survival
    • Correct Wushu training improves physical ability, health and willpower
    • Is an excellent source of exercise
    • Some consider it a personal art form
    Martial Art Facts
  • 4.
    • Total martial art training includes:
      • Ti (kicking)
      • Da (punching)
      • Shuai (throwing)
      • Na (controlling)
      • Gi (hitting)
      • Ci (thrusting)
  • 5.
    • Related to each style are basic forms which involve:
      • defense strategies
      • offense
      • retreat
      • mobility and immobility
      • speed and slowness
      • hard or soft postures
      • emptiness and fullness
      • with or without weapons
    More Training
  • 6.
    • Will use defense simulation, such as two-man choregraphed sequences for beginning training
    • There are also internal and external body training methods
    • Those training methods help strengthen the body to withstand strikes and blows
    • In the advanced stages of training, a student begins full-contact training by sparring with semi-control
    • That is to add realism to the training
    Even more Training
  • 7.
    • Wushu was was historically termed "Wu-Yi" or martial arts
    • The Chinese government changed the term to "Guoshu,“
    • Ever since the Zhou Dynasty, which ended in 771 B.C., practical Wushu training has included basic skills
    • Those included strength training, fencing, staff sparring, spear training, etc.
    • also included training by using forms, such as the Shaolin Eight Methods,
  • 8.
    • To attempt to classify Chinese Wushu is very difficult because of the number and variety of styles in the enormous country of China
    • Traditionally, Chinese martial arts are classified by one of three methods
      • Internal or External styles.
      • Southern or Northern styles.
      • As "Shaolin" or "Wudang" or "Ermei."
    Forms and Classification of Wushu
  • 9.
    • Empty hand competition involves the performance of a sequence, usually traditional, demonstrating the function and essence of a particular martial style. Competition normally falls into the following subdivisions:
      • Long Fist -- Styles such as Zha, Wa, Wha, Pao, Hun, Fangzi
      • Bagua -- Basic Ba-Gua, Innate Ba-Gua, Latent Ba-Gua, Ba-Gua Consecutive Palm, Close-body Ba-Gua, Ba-Gua Dragon Form
      • Imitating Styles -- Preying Mantis, Eagle Claw, Monkey, Tiger, Leopard, Drunken-Style, Drunken Eight Fairies, Duck, Snake. Rooster

    • I think that China is a very interesting spot to visit because there are many things to do and see there.
