Wushu (sport)

Wushu is a type of Chinese sport where people do fancy moves with their bodies in a very cool way! It looks like they're fighting or dancing all at once! They have to be really good at balancing, jumping, twirling and doing other moves that are hard to do.

Some people do wushu just for fun and exercise, but others do it as a competition sport like in the Olympics! They have special rules for how you do the moves and how good you have to be to win. It's not just about who can do the moves the best, but also who can make them look the coolest and most creative as well!

Wushu is really fun to watch and people who do it are super talented at jumping, spinning, flipping and making their bodies do all sorts of crazy things!
