Some Characteristics Of Wushu Exercise Methods

Wushu Kung fu Center

Chinese wushu has its own traditional training system. Following are the six basic characteristics of its training methods.

Incorporation of toughness with softness: Chinese wushu stresses the integration of toughness and softness. All wushu schools stress the training method “with inner toughness and outer softness”, “softness in appearance and toughness in essence”, “incorporating softness into toughness and toughness into softness” and “coordination of toughness and softness brings about mental stability”, etc.

Coordination of internal and external activities: Internal activities refer to functions of the mind, external activities refer to bodily movements of the eye, the hand, the foot, the trunk, etc. One requirement concerns correspondence of upper and lower body parts: the hands should coincide with the feet, the elbows with the knees, and the shoulders with hips. These correspondences are called “Wai-San-He (Three External Coordinations)”. Another requirement concerns complete coordination of bodily movements: there should be coordination amongst the hand, the eye, the torso, the foot, etc – when one of them moves, all the others move and when one of them is at rest, all the others tend to rest. However external activities should be coordinated with internal activities. When there is sincerity in your mind there is appropriateness in your bodily movements. So in wushu training, one should rid one’s mind of distractions, and this is of prime importance to a wushu practitioner. In addition, one’s awareness should be coordinated with one’s intention, one’s intention with one’s qi (intrinsic energy), and one’s qi with one’s active use of energy. These correspondences are called “Nei-San-He (Three Internal Coordinations)”. Only when attaining such coordination can a wushu practitioner get a deeper understanding of wushu, and the performance will attain a more advanced level.

The generation and control of qi and breath: Qi means intrinsic energy flow – it denotes the psycho physiological power associated with blood circulation and breath. Chinese wushu attaches great importance to the training of qi and the control of breath. For example, the Taijiquan practitioner is required to “make the qi sink to the navel” and “be directed by the mind”. Shaolinquan stresses that “qi should be propelled from the navel” and that during exercise “the body and limbs become active through the controlled use of your qi and breath”. All of the other Chinese wushu schools and styles pay special attention to the control of qi and breath as well.

Stressing inner energy: This means that the limbs and trunk should be filled with a kind of strenuousness or inner energy when a posture or movement is being performed, and there should be a natural feeling of strain in these body parts. Wushu techniques require perfect balance and exactness in one’s movements and postures. They also require adequate inner energy or strenuousness in one’s limbs and trunk, and, as a result, one’s movements and postures will be full of vigor and look more energetic.

Continuous and uninterrupted movements: Chinese wushu requires that all movements in a routine should be linked and executed fluently in a smooth chain of actions. Under no circumstances should “qi” be blocked and flow impeded. This applies to all the other styles of wushu as well as to Taijiquan. The other styles of wushu, however, do not require the flowing characteristic of Taijiquan, but require that all movements, though broken or interrupted in form, should be connected in spirit, in “Qi” or “Yi (intention)”, so as to form a unified whole. A wushu practitioner can achieve this through his/her coordinated mental activities, or even through his/her eye movements.

Correct and exact foot techniques: The four basic combat techniques in wushu are kicking, hitting, throwing and seizing, which constitute almost all of the attacking and defensive movements in wushu routines (as striking and thrusting in weapon routines). Each of these basic techniques has a number of methods. For example, in kicking there is the heel kick, stretching sidekick, toe kick, coiling, sweeping kick, swinging kick, etc. In hitting there is the jab, the hook, the uppercut, the downward punch, the chop, the reverse and spinning punches, etc. For each of these ways there is a specific method of execution. For example, the heel kick, stretching sidekick and sliding kick all involve leg bending and stretching movements. The stretching sidekick should be done with the toes pointing sideways, the sole leading, and the force applied to the centre of the sole. The sliding sidekick should be done with the toes pointing sideways, the sole down, and the force applied to the outer edge of the foot. There are strict quality specifications for each method of the basic wushu techniques of kicking, hitting, throwing and seizing. Care should be taken not to confuse one with another.

The Functions And Effects Of Wushu

Wushu Kung fu Center

1) Wushu in building up health: Wushu routines consist of very rich and diversified movements, including extension and contraction, wind milling, balancing, jumping and somersaulting, thus involving nearly all the parts of the body. Compared with other sports, wushu requires better coordination among the muscle group moving centres, and between these centres and the autonomic centres. Therefore, systematic training with wushu can greatly improve the coordination between them. Taijiquan is a particularly helpful treatment for the chronic diseases because it stresses that physical movements be guided by mental activities, thus helping enhance the process of inhibition and improve balance in the nervous system. Research shows that regular exercise with wushu can improve the functions of the cardiovascular system, enhance the aerobic and anaerobic metabolism, stimulate respiration, and increase vital capacity. It also has good effects in developing such physical qualities as strength, agility and flexibility.

2) Wushu as a means of self defence: As mentioned above, wushu takes the form of either routine exercises or free combat, and both forms are made up of fighting techniques. A wushu practitioner benefits from his/her wushu training not only in terms of health building, but also in terms of gaining mastery of a system of attacking and defending techniques, which can be employed effectively for self-defence.

3) Wushu’s ethical and spiritual functions: Through the millenniums of wushu’s history, decorum and ethics have been emphasized all along. “Learning decorum and ethics before learning wushu skills”, and “don’t learn from the wicked, never teach the mean” are just two examples of the numerous moral maxims that Chinese wushu practitioners have followed in their practice. It has been a Chinese wushu tradition to give first priority to ethics in wushu learning and instruction. Thus a wushu practitioner is required to follow certain moral rules while he is learning to master the combat techniques in order to benefit society and the mankind. Exercises of sparring and routines can build up bravery, tenacity and indomitable spirit. Therefore, wushu helps cultivate one’s moral character, and through practicing wushu, one’s temperament is better molded.e inner energy or strenuousness in one’s limbs and trunk, and, as a result, one’s movements and postures will be full of vigor and look more energetic.

4) Wushu’s entertaining and artistic functions: Wushu is of high aesthetic value. Both the routines, which express strength and skill through internal and external activities, and the free sparring, which express strong fighting form through the trials of bravery and intelligence between two practitioners, can bring much enjoyment to people. Wushu can enrich people’s cultural life and furthermore, can be a good way for people to exchange techniques and ideas, and to promote friendship.
