What is Kung Fu?
“Kung fu is a Chinese term referring to any study, learning, or practice that requires patience, energy, time and practice to complete, often used in the West to refer to Chinese martial arts, also known as Wushu.
The Kung Fu of Martial Arts
Originally, to practice kung fu did not just mean to practice Chinese martial arts. Instead, it referred to the process of one’s training – the strengthening of the body and the mind, the learning and the perfection of one’s skills – rather than to what was being trained. It refers to excellence achieved through long practice in any endeavor.” (source: Wikipedia) Today, in the West, Kung fu generally refers to the wushu style of martial arts. In the video below, we see an expert demonstration of Kungfu performed by Jin Wu Kung Fu of Los Angeles.
Master Xiaojun Wang
XJ (Xiaojun Wang) was born 1985 in the city of Dengfeng, China, located in the Henan province. He began training in the arts of Shaolin Kung Fu at age 8 at a school called Shao Lin Si Wushu Xulian Jidi. The school is instructed by members of the Shaolin Temple and is located next to it.
XJ is proficient in and has mastered the following fighting styles and weapons: tiger, snake, monkey, scorpion, mantis, staff, long sword, Kwan Dao, twin broadswords, three section staffs, whip chains (single and double), bull whip, spear, double hook swords, southern long-fist, Tai Ji Quan, soft and hard qi gong, Tong Bei, Xiao Hong, da Hong, Chang Quan, Luo Han Quan. He is regularly seen on T.V. due to his expertise in the art of Shaolin Kung Fu.
Jin Wu Kung Fu
Master XJ opened up the school Jin Wu Kung Fu in downtown Los Angeles, in the heart of Chinatown, to bridge the gap between the ancient art of Chinese Kungfu, and the West, enabling new students, both experienced and amateurs, the ability to learn and grow in the martial arts.
