The older system, called Wade-Giles (after its inventors) is commonly used in the United States. The newer system, called Hanyu pinyin, or just Pinyin for short, was developed by Chinese people for use in China, and is now increasingly common throughout the world. For instance take the word “Tao” from “Taoism”, in China it is pronounced “Dao” not “Tao” … But even still, many English scholars prefer the more familiar term "Tao" arguing that it is now an English word in its own right and should not be affected by changes in linguistic fashions. Also, they didn’t try to name themselves after the mountain… They named themselves after an internal style of training developed by a Taoist named Zhang Sanfeng who succeeded in achieving Tao after settling on Mount WuDang. So why are you scolding them for a miscommunication in translation and pronunciation of language? These little misunderstandings go further than that though, look at how everyone calls Chinese Martial Arts “Kung Fu” when the correct term is “Wushu” ... The word "Wushu" consists of two Chinese characters. “Wu”, meaning martial or military, and “Shu”, which translates into art, skill or method. Together these form "WuShu" or "Martial Art". To be more precise, the Chinese write using calligraphy and the first character Wu is actually a combination of two other calligraphy characters Zhi & Ge. The first means to stop or halt something, and the latter symbolizes an ancient Chinese weapon similar to a spear. Because of this, many consider a more detailed translation of Wushu to be "method to stop weapon" or "the art of stopping violence", more similar to the Western term self-defense. This aspect plays a major role in the philosophies that are present in many Chinese martial arts, which emphasize that the best way to defeat an enemy is to do so without fighting, and that the easiest way to not fight is to avoid situations that might lead to any fighting at all. Wushu is the correct term for the more commonly known but misused term "Kung Fu", which roughly translates to "skill" and refers specifically to the energy, feeling and effort expended in doing or making something. A craftsman or artisan could be said to have good "Gung Fu" (properly pronounced) in the way in which they carry out their craft. In the same way, a Wushu practitioner can also be said to have good Kung Fu with their Wushu practice. All categories of Chinese martial arts, traditional, contemporary, hard and soft, can be called Wushu.

"Kung-Fu" means "Deciplined Person" and was created by Huant Ti i can recall the date off hand but i will bring that and post it tomorrow. Whilst Wu-Tang if you recall there was the Tang dynasty and also the wu family. Now let me get all the details and not cause confusion here.
Cause i have quite a number of old scrolls from my Celestial Master "Kiyang Cai Ching", and i will mail my friend Lisbeth "Ducks" shes a Taoist Hermit, and Zhao Yun on other details i have.And for Zhang Sanfeng well i would not want to go there as that is a different story altogether. Whilst there is mordern,contemporary wushu.

My understanding is that Wu-Tang is a sword style that the Shaolin Monks developed in order to protect themselves from the Japanese Samurai who frequently slaughtered them. From what I heard when the mastered the style the Samurai where no longer a match for the Wu-Tang sword style

True, but actually the name of the villian was Ghostfaced Killer, hence the name Ghostface Killer without the 'D'.

The first two posts (the thread starter and the second post) are actually correct. Wu Dang Mountain is right behind the Shao 'Lin temple. That IS the correct way: Wu Dang. However, as the second post states, they changed it to "Wu-Tang" because that's how they pronounce it on the flicks. The films dubbed in English usually have bad translations anyway. And Peace to TheMASSIVE for postin that up. Everything he said was 100% correct and on point.
