The term Gung Fu, today used to describe the Chinese martial arts, has linguistically almost no relation to combat – it´s basic meanings are „time“; „effort“, „skill“, „mastery“; „hard work“. Paraphrased translation of the word could therefore be a skill or a mastery in a certain area of human activities (not necessarily martial arts), achieved through a long-term and demanding training.
