Discover Chinese wushu with this concise and easy-to-read primer. Wushu, also known as kung fu, has the art of attack and defence at its centre and is an umbrella term for the Chinese martial arts. With an accompanying instructional DVD that demonstrates a key practice, it is the perfect introduction for newcomers to Chinese martial arts, as well as anyone interested in martial traditions more generally.
