Chinese people like Martial Arts as much as Americans. Some really like it and some don't. Just because someone has heard of a famous Chinese person who did martial arts doesn't mean everyone there likes it. I must admit many men do but women don't participate.

Is Korean fighting Kung Fu or karate?

Its is called as Korean Karate. Tae Kwon Do the national modern korean art has deep roots in ancient Korean styles, but the poomsae (forms) are based on those taught in Okinawan karate. Okinawan karate evolved from southern Chinese martial arts. You can find similarities between karate and nanquan or karate and hung gar. Ancient Korean martial arts were developed from northern Chinese martial arts like chang quan.Hence, it encapsulates both, the Korean and Japanese traditions, as well as ancient Chinese. People call it Korean karate because they see only the similarity between forms of Taekwondo and Karate. Yet, they forget that their concepts are opposite. Southern Chinese and Japanese martial arts fight in close range and make maximum use of arms. While, northern Chinese and Koreans are mostly tall, they fight in long range utilizing kicks at maximum.

How many Kung Fu styles in the word?

In China there are so many, they are divided into families. I'm sure you're familiar how everything is grouped. For example, with animal biology you have species, genus, family, etc. With martial arts is similar; 1) The largest overarching group of course is the kind of martial arts, namely "Chinese." That encompasses ALL Chinese styles. 2) The subdivision of the kind of martial art, is the martial arts family, generally divided according to region; in China you have the northern styles, and you have the southern styles. 3) From from region, you divide into province; virtually every single Chinese province, has its own variation of a standard mainstream style. In other words if you count variants, Chinese martial arts styles in fact number in the thousands. By all estimates, there are probably around, between, 1,500 - 2,000 Kung Fu styles in China. They are not just divided by region, but by approach as well; the two main families of Chinese martial arts are the external schools, which focus primarily on physical conditioning that ressembles athletic training. I use the word ressemble, because, where in athletics there is concern with rest and recuperation, in Chinese martial arts, the body is brutalized, the thinking being that sooner or later it has to adapt. Athletes, do not do the same thing every day; they have cardio days, and they have weight days, the cardio days allow damage to heal from the weight days, while the weight days allow damage to heal from the cardio days. In Chinese martial arts though you do weights and cardio EVERY DAY. The reason the training is brutal is, I don't know if you've been to an emergency room but, the puncture wound from a knife can cause a lot of blood loss, because of that, Chinese martial arts instructors do not tolerate laziness of any kind. The other family, are the internal schools, which focus on meditation, focusing very little on actual physical training. Now, Baijiquan uses a lot of Chi Kung, as well as a lot of internal-like forms, however it is not considered an internal art because it is also heavily reliant on physical conditioning. In the Chinese martial arts families, there many more external schools, than there are internal ones, as in modern day China, the majority of external martial artists do not consider the internal ones to be practical. Chinese martial arts experts who see the internal martial arts as practical, are a minority, as few people in the Chinese martial arts community have encountered a true master of this internal art or that. In recent years, even Tai Chi Chuan practitioners have been under performing; an excellent Shaolin monk, most of the time, will handily defeat an outstanding Tai Chi practitioner. I need to state for the sake of the question, that Tai Chi Chuan is considered a style of Kung Fu, however even with in it, there are subdivisions and families.

Which is stronger Kung Fu or wrestling?

Kung fu is an umbrella term that can encompass any type of martial art, including wrestling. Plus, it depends on what styles of Chinese martial arts and wrestling you are referring to. Chinese martial arts has a form of wrestling known as Shuai Jiao. The point of the style is to hurt the opponent by repeatedly slamming their body on the ground. This is primarily stand up wrestling, meaning it does not have any ground techniques. This leaves it vulnerable to styles like Greek, Brazilian, or Japanese wrestling because they are primarily performed on the ground. However, these styles are vulnerable to stand up fighting if they can't get their opponent on the ground. Some Chinese martial arts schools that have been exposed to ground wrestling have developed techniques to keep proponents from getting taken down. One of these is side-stepping tackles. In the end, both Chinese martial arts and foreign styles of wrestling have there own built in weaknesses.

Why study the martial arts?

There are a variety of reasons that someone would study the martial arts. It depends on your age, gender, and personality amongst other things.If you are a child, then your reason doesn't matter much because you made the decision arbitrarily and you asked your parents to do it or your parents just put you in a martial arts school because they had their own reasons, but the reasons for studying the martial arts varies depending on what you want and need mentally, physically, and sometimes spiritually.The mind is an important tool and ome people study the martial arts because they are fascinated by it. There is a long history of martial arts and each art has its own origin and lineage. Like history, it can be interesting but unlike history, it's active. The combination is attractive to active people.Some people study the martial arts for the discipline, focus, and concentration development. Parents generally involve their kids in the martial arts because it is a great way to develop these qualities.The martial arts world is vast and due to the history of each art, there is more than enough knowledge to occupy a person for a lifetime. This knowledge is what is passed on throughout the history of the martial arts and the more knowledge that you acquire, the more knowledge that you are able to pass on. By learning more, you can develop more skill. The more skill you have, the better martial artist you can potentially become. It is important to know what the technique is and why you are doing it.Some people do it to exercise their minds. In order to practice the martial arts, you have to remember what you've been taught. Memory is important so exercising the mind helps maintain your memory. Some students have a hard time remembering techniques that they've just been taught, some remember techniques after they've been shown once, and the majority of students lie somewhere in between those two extremes. It is important for the mind to continue to work or it will begin to falter during later years.Stress is a major factor in daily life now and everyone needs an activity that they can do that relieves that stress. The way that people deal with stress can be very different, but the great thing is that there are about as many martial arts as there are ways to deal with stress. If you want to hit things on a regular basis, then a punching bag is really useful and boxing might be for you. If you need something that will calm you down, then Tai Chi is very relaxing. Mental health is very important and the martial arts world is full of methods to help in that struggle.Some people are looking for a physical activity that is fun or different. Some people don't like doing basic exercise because it can be boring. Most martial arts are very physical and can be very demanding. Some can be more gentle and accommodating. There are a variety of martial arts out there that are well suited for anyone to practice and can cater to your personality.The development involved in the martial arts is usually the reason that people involve themselves in skill based activities. By developing skills, you increase your ability and improve yourself. Some people enjoy the act of developing their skills and increasing their ability to be involved in more serious physical activity due to certain demands that certain martial arts require.Some people join due to the community that some martial arts schools provide. There are plenty of people that select arts due to their personality and because of that, you generally find many like minded people that gather at a martial arts school. Being involved in a fun activity with like minded people can be very welcoming and healthy for both the mind and body.There is a long history of the spirit of the martial artist being a part of what makes a good martial artist. This can range anywhere between sheer will and the spirit of your martial arts ancestors guiding your learning and development. There is meditation to calm the mind and there is meditation to become one with the spirit of the martial art that you are learning. No matter what your beliefs are, the idea of the spirit of the martial arts can be interpreted as your connection to the martial arts. How much do you want it? How much does it raise your vitality or improve your moral? What are you willing to do to obtain the skills and knowledge? This is the spirit of the martial arts.Everyone has a different reason for doing the martial arts, but everyone can benefit from the martial arts in some way. The best thing to do is to figure out why you would like to study the martial arts.

Who invented gun powder and martial arts?

The ancient Greeks invented martial arts. Alexander the Great invented Pankration which led to the invention of other martial arts. Alexander the Great in his conquests of the middle east and Asia (mainly India and the middle east) and the Asians learned it and that's when they started making all of their martial arts. And the ancient Romans and Chinese having what's called the silk road which led from the Roman province of Rome to China they both invented it together. The Chinese being very primitive like the ancient Aztecs and Mayans didn't have the technology or tools to make gun powder on thirty own traded ideas with Rome and the Romans helped them make it. First of all the like half of the ingredients to make ancient gunpowder could only be found in Europe (which belonged to the Romans) not in Asia. And the ancient Chinese lacked any form of mathematics which does help in creating it and the Chinese had no ability to compress the material into a nice fine powder (the ancient Romans did).
