Abstract: In order to probe into the aesthetic implications of Chinese Wushu, so that it maintains its unique charm in western sports cultures, and gradually blends into modern society development, the author first collated the his-torical changes of the aesthetic implications of Chinese Wushu, concluded that in the long history some Chinese classical aesthetic connotations were absorbed by Wushu, and produced profound influence on Wushu. By compar-ing the difference between the aesthetic implications of Chinese Wushu and western sports, the author concluded that the different expressions of Wushu and western sports can be sorted into differences in intrinsic self-cultivation and extrinsic self-expression, i.e. the quickness or smoothness, rigidness or softness, realness or unrealness of movement of Wushu moves, blend into a unified whole of opposites and harmonic aesthetic experience, having one of a kind characteristics. Facing the tide of social development, comprehensively understanding the aesthetical im-plications of traditional Wushu will be conducive to the communication and promotion of Wushu at all levels.
