The Martial Arts in China have many designations - several of which are listed below


● Wushu — military arts (main name used in modern China)

● Quanshu — boxing arts

● Quanfa — boxing techniques

● Gongfu (kungfu) — common Western term


We generally use the term quanshu.


Quanshu covers the area that would roughly correspond to the training of  “kungfu”.


The training is ‘external’ in the early stages but then gradually transforms into ‘internal’.
