The History of Wushu in FISU


Wushu first made it onto the FISU sports programme at the 2017 Taipei Summer Universiade as a non-compulsory sport. The inaugural World University Wushu Championship is set to take place in Macau, China in 2018. Wushu competitions are gender-equal and must include: an individual event, individual all-around event, and a team event.

Also known as kung-fu, Wushu is a collective term for the martial art practices, which originated in China. Developed over the past 5,000 years, Wushu’s  origins trace back to the human struggle for survival in a harsh environment which included hunting and defending oneself from wild animals and other human beings. Since then, wushu has become a way to cultivate the body, mind and spirit.
