It is difficult to accurately assess just how many schools/styles of Wushu are practiced in the world today. It is estimated that there are more than 100 schools with many individual styles within each of these schools.
For example, Hung Gar and Wing Chun are two well-known styles within the NanQuan School. Other popular schools in the West include Shaolin, Bagua (Pakua), Xingyi (Hsing-I) and Taijiquan (Tai Chi).
Within the Taijiquan school there are five main internationally recognised styles: Chen, Yang, Sun, Wu, Woo, and Dong Yue - a newly created popular style.
