Kungfu 功夫

Although Kungfu 功夫 generally refers to the Chinese martial arts in contemporary culture, the name’s original meaning refers to any discipline or skill achieved through hard work and practice, not necessarily martial arts.

As such, kungfu’s actual meaning is the training of the mind and less about the physique. For example, the discipline of tea making is called the kung fu tea ceremony.

Traditional Chinese martial arts consists of the study of Qigong 氣功, which is a system of coordinated body-posture and movement, breathing, and meditation. The strength in Chinese martial arts is as such the physical expression and embodiment of the mind, rather than the training of the physical body.
