Kung Fu also knows as Pinyin Gongfu, is a world-renowned form of Chinese Martial arts. Over the centuries several different fighting styles have been developed within KungFu. It is both a form of exercise with a spiritual dimension stemming from concentration and self-discipline and a primarily unarmed mode of personal combat. Its prescribed stances and actions are based on keen observations of human skeletal and muscular anatomy and physiology, and it uses great muscular coordination.
