Demonstrating Kung Fu at Daxiangguo Monestary, Kaifeng, Henan. Taken by Ariel Steiner.Although the term "Kung Fu" can be applied to any sort of hard work, Westerners use it to classify a variety of Chinese martial arts often credited as the root of other martial arts styles around the world. These ancient arts were handed down from master to student for centuries. Some kung fu styles have since been opened to the public; you could walk straight into a well-lit school down the block and start training. This guide contains a rotating selection of information to help you sort through the bewildering variety of styles, plus tips and advice for getting the most out of your training experience.
