as a side note, i think the word "wu" is probably better translated as "combat." the word "war" would be closer to something like "Zhan," as in "zhan zheng." i believe "zhan shu" is a valid phrase also, thought it would denote more along the lines of strategy than martial arts. just my 2 cents

戰, Zhan in Chinese, Jun in Korean, can be translated to mean war, but it more properly works as pertaining to combat, the actual fighting. 戰鬪/Zhandou/Juntoo means the act of combat.

Also: an SF captain I went to langauge school with told me about some weird exercise he saw in a PRC Special Forces hand book. The exercise has something to do with trying to chase down and catch a chicken in a wooded area with their bare hands. I'm sure they have plenty more unconventional exercises.

Reminds me of that scene in "Beverly Hills Ninja" with Chris Farley.
"Keep trying! Someday you will choke your chicken!"

"What are they doing?
"Oh, they're practicing wu shu"
"hey, what are those two guys doing in that cage?"
"Oh, they're ultimate fighting."
Wushu and ultimate fighting are both not the ideal terms, but get used because people sometimes refer to the activity that way.
