Kung Fu vs Karate or Tae Kwon Do

Kung Fu vs Karate or Tae Kwon Do

What is the difference between Kungfu (Wu-Shu) And Karate or Tae Kwon Do?

First of all, Kung Fu and Wushu are both Chinese martial arts. Tae Kwon-Do is from Korea, and Karate originated in Japan. There are some similarities among these martial arts in physical appearance, but the mental aspect is quite different. Very much like the Chinese, Korean and Japanese look alike and yet the language and culture are very different.

Each martial art is unique in its own way. Each has its own beauty in movements and philosophy. Another difference is in the form of the arts. Chinese martial arts tend to be characterized by more fluid circular motions while the Japanese and Korean tend to be more rigid and linear.

How to choose the one you like is all based on personal needs and preference.
