    A Hypothetical Face of Kung Fu To The World

    If Bruce Lee had never happened and Wing Chun and Jeet Kune Do had never become such popular martial arts, what system of gong fu do you think should represent gong fu to the world?
    I was on the metro earlier, deep in meditation, when a ruffian came over and started causing trouble. He started pushing me with his bag, steadily increasing the force until it became very annoying. When I turned to him, before I could ask him to stop, he immediately started hurling abuse like a scoundrel. I performed a basic chin na - carotid artery strike combination and sent him to sleep. The rest of my journey was very peaceful, and passersby hailed me as a hero - Warrior Man

    There already is one; Taiji quan. Worldwide, there are more people who do Taiji than Wing Chun.

    Central Kuoshu in Nanjing was established in the early 1900's as well as Jing Mo.
    In the 1940's Wu-Shu was already being instituted in Chinese schools.
    So, perhaps wu-shu and sanshou.
    "My Gung-Fu may not be Your Gung-Fu.
    Gwok-Si, Gwok-Faht"

    "I will not be part of the generation
    that killed Kung-Fu."

    ....step.

    Are you saying Wu-shu began before the cultural revolution and the machine gunning of some 15,000 gong fu masters? Wow. I didn't know that. The Chinese government really didn't want any competent martial artists who could challenge it! Deep.

    dude, they've been executing Gung-Fu Masters since the Ching Dynasty.

    There are plenty of other "martial" arts I'd get rid of first starting with wushu.
