The Chinese term for martial art or military art is "Wu Shu" . . . "Kung-fu" actually translates (roughly. . .there are many translations, but they all point towards the same idea) as Energy and Time. What? This doesn't mean empty hand fighting or Chinese Boxing or... etc. Yes, Energy and Time refers to the amount of Energy and Time or Practice and Time that you put into your art. One can be musician, graphic artist, talented speaker, a surgeon... or whatever your specialty that you try to perfect, Kung-fu refers to your personal investment that you place in your endeavor. You may never reach perfection, but at least you are striving for it... this is the meaning of "Kung-Fu"!!!
