Currently, the IWUF has 149 members, across 5 continental federations worldwide. The IWUF is recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), and is also a member of both ARISF and GAISF.
The IWUF is devoted to the spread and development of wushu throughout the world, to enrich people’s lives by making them healthier, both mentally and physically, and to promote friendship and understanding between all people worldwide . . . .
As a global leader in the Wushu and Kung Fu movements, IWUF is committed to developing Wushu and Kung Fu as an Olympic event.
