A few months ago, at a tournament, myself[kung Fu artist] along with my competitors presented our weapons to the judges for inspection. I, standing beside the Wushu individual, had a Northern Broadsword of fine craftmanship[my Sifu's]. The judge gave it a few hits, tried twisting the hilt, and did so with little care if he broke it. That is his job, after all. Now, when he steps to the Wushu individual and accepts the sword and proceeds with the same treatment, only he pulls the blade right out of the handle.
I will never forget the look on the judges face. It seems that was a first ever for him.
Though both wushu and kung fu students train hard as F, wushu is not a MA. I am Kung Fu.
