Wushu is the Chinese word for all the styles of Chinese Martial Arts. These arts can be Tai Chi, Shaolin Boxing, Wing Chun, and many other martial styles.
When you look at the Chinese characters for wushu, it is actually two characters or words, Wu meaning ‘martial’ and Shu meaning ‘art’. Upon further examination of the Chinese character for Wu, it too is two characters, Zhi meaning ‘ do not do’ and Ge meaning ‘Fight’. Thus the characters translate to ‘Do not Fight’.
Therefore, the word Wushu really means the ‘Art of not fighting’.
Our Savior, Jesus Christ, descended to this world,
Showing people the love and spirit of the cross deep in His sacrifice;
Martial artists are drawn so near to Him and worship His power in unity,
Their heart of worship, filled with respect and modesty, is ever conveyed by their intellectual wisdom and physical skills.
