EUROPEAN WUSHU EVENTS
The European Wushu Federation has always been the pioneer for introducing new events and competition formats which were later followed by the IWUF. For example – the EWUF was the first to introduce in 2003 the first continental championships for juniors. The EWUF was the first to introduce competition with optional routines and the first to organise in 2013 the first dedicated taijiquan event.
The EWUF has the following competition formats:
