    There are so many different styles of martial arts in China that you’re never going to get it down to ten. If you want a list of ten representative styles, then you’re looking at Shaolin, Tai Chi / Ba Gua / Xingyi (the "internal" family), Shuai Jiao (hope I’ve spelt that right; it’s basically Chinese grappling), and then you have all the different styles of external kung fu like Five Ancestors, Wing Chun, Drunken Fist, San Da, all the different animal styles of kung fu…and you haven’t even got to the weapons yet.

    Chinese martial arts is a pretty enormous field.
