Wu Lin Feng (simplified Chinese: 武林风; traditional Chinese: 武林風; pinyin: wǔ lín fēng) is a martial arts competition televised by Henan Television. It is the longest running martial arts program in China.[1]

Since 2007 the competition has become more international in nature, bringing in more challengers from other countries and filming bouts abroad, including in Germany, New Zealand and in the United States. Participants have included K-1 fighters, mixed martial arts professionals, Muay Thai fighters and wushu and sanda practitioners. In 2013, it was ranked among the top 100 most viewed satellite and cable television programs in China.[2]
