CHAMPIONSHIP OF FRANCE TAOLU MODERN AND CUP OF FRANCE TAOLU TRADITIONAL

Taolu is a form in Chinese martial arts. The practice of the sequences would come from shamanic rituals and sword dances having the function of galvanizing the troops before the battle. Organized by the French Karate Federation with its National Wushu Committee and the League of Normandy, for the first time on the Normandy coast, the event will bring together more than 200 competitors among the best nationals in the Minimes, Cadets, Juniors, Seniors and Veterans categories divided into modern Taolu and traditional Taolu, which will have previously qualified for the league championships.

ONE AND THE SAME DISCIPLINE, DIVIDED INTO TWO BIG FAMILIES
Traditional Taolu allows a more diversified practice in terms of styles, allowing the expression of all facets of Wushu (competitive sport derived from traditional Chinese martial arts) with a high martial technical requirement. Modern Taolu, a recognized high-level discipline, is a more sporty form.

TAOLU STYLES REPRESENTED
Modern Taolu is divided into three main types - bare hands (Nan Quan and Chang Quan), short weapons (Jian Shu, Dao Shu and Nan Dao) and long weapons (Qiang Shu, Gunshu and Nan Gun) - and two styles - from north and south. These tests are supplemented by two forms of Taijiquan (bare hands) and Taijijian (with sword) in external modern and classic, as well as a Duilian (team test of 2 to 3 people).
Traditional Taolu is divided into seven categories, including many Taolu, grouped into Neijia Wushu traditional, Wuaijia Wushu traditional and Jiti (group tests). The whole will be represented during this competition.

ONE RATING IN 10
The Taolu are rated out of 10. The evaluation will focus on the quality and the difficulties of the movements (Nan Du), as well as the overall performance. The number of judges varies from 5 to 9 depending on the type of Taolu.

A COMPETITION WITH INTERNATIONAL CHALLENGES
This French Cup and this French Championship will be particularly observed by the supervision of the French teams. This will be an opportunity for competitors to "win" their ticket to possibly qualify for selection to the French team for the upcoming international competitions: the Mediterranean Championships in June 2019 in Marseille and the World Championships in October 2019 in Shanghai.
