Wushu is a Chinese martial art based on multiple styles of Kung Fu. It dates back to the Bronze Age (3000-1200 BC), where man’s struggle for survival led him to develop defense techniques against wild animals and other human beings.[1]

As a competitive sport, it features the performance of taolu routines, which are  continuously connected sets of predetermined techniques choreographed according to certain principles and philosophies to incorporate stylistic principles of attack and defense. Judges evaluate routines based on quality of movements, degree of difficulty, and overall performance.[2]
