The International Wushu Federation (IWUF; Chinese: 国际武术联合会) is an international sport organization established on October 3, 1990 in Beijing, China during the 11th Asian summer Games to promote Wushu. These Wushu competitions hold in two parts: sanda (fighting) and taolu (forms). Currently, the IWUF has 146 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 Sport Accord.

History[edit]

Since 1991, the IWUF has held 13 World Wushu Championships (Chinese: 世界武术锦标赛) and has helped over 100 federations (List of member federations External) around the globe to organize their own championships and national tournaments (e.g. the European Championships are held by the European Wushu Federation).[2] The IWUF has been trying actively to push Wushu to become a demonstration sport or even a formal medal event at the summer Olympic Games since 1992.[citation needed] The current president of IWUF is Mr. Yu Zaiqing of People's Republic of China (2003- ), and its headquarters are located in Lausanne, with an administrative office in Beijing.

The last World Wushu Championships were held in kazan, russia on 2017.
