Celebrate IWUF’s 30th Anniversary Together: Share Wushu. Share Health.
3rd World Wushu-Kungfu Day: (#WWKD2020)
August 8, 2020
World Wushu-Kungfu Day (WWKD) is a global celebration of wushu-kungfu. WWKD is celebrated each year the first Saturday on or following August 8th, and is accompanied by a theme each time. In 2018 and 2019, wushu fans on every continent came together in wushu federations, schools, clubs, communities, town squares, and even in the streets to show their passion for the sport and pastime they love so much.
“Wushu’s inclusion into Olympics, as our significant goal and vision, will always be borne in mind to make it happen at an earlier stage. ”

This year, 2020, is the 30th Anniversary of IWUF (1990.10.3-). On January 8, IOC announced that wushu is included as an official sport in the Dakar 2022 Youth Olympic Games (YOG), inspiring the global wushu community.
Currently, COVID-19 is spreading around the world and the lives and work of many wushu friends are affected. However, the passion and love of wushu do not cease. A great number of federations are holding online wushu competitions and activities, and many people practice wushu and kungfu at home. By a series of “Online” Activities, we encourage all wushu people to share posts, pictures, or videos online together to celebrate together! We’ve seen that around 50 countries and regions across five continents have celebrated this year’s WWKD by creative online campaigns and activities, and wish IWUF a Happy and Prosperous 30th Anniversary!
We’re excited by how much the worldwide wushu-kungfu community has grown, and inspired by all of our potential for the future. We look forward to your participation and enthusiasm as we all celebrate IWUF’s 30th Anniversary together!
