Often referred to as contemporary or modern wushu, it is also a modern competition sport combining different techniques from various classical gongfu (kungfu) styles, with greater emphasis on stunning aerial techniques, tumbling and aesthetics. Introduced in 1950's, wushu became the national sport of China and today it's practiced all around the world.
