The United States of America Wushu Kungfu Federation (USAWKF) is the governing body of Wushu-Kungfu in the United States.[1] The USAWKF manages and selects the members of the US Wushu Team to compete in various international competitions including the World Wushu Championships, World Junior Wushu Championships, and the World Traditional Wushu Championships. The USAWKF is a member of the Pan-American Wushu Federation (PAWF)[2] and the International Wushu Federation (IWUF).

The USAWKF was formed in 1993 with the intent of unifying the Chinese martial arts community and to promote Wushu in America. In 1995, the USAWKF held the 3rd World Wushu Championships in Baltimore, Maryland, which marked the first time a major international Wushu competition was held outside of Asia.[3] Since then, the USAWKF continues to host various team trials and national competitions annually. As of 2020, athletes of the US Wushu Team have won two gold medals, eleven silver medals, and eighteen bronze medals at the World Wushu Championships.[4] The USAWKF will host the next World Wushu Championships in Dallas, Texas in 2021.

The current president of the USAWKF is Anthony Goh, who is also the president of the Pan-American Wushu Federation and a vice president of the IWUF. The organization's headquarters is located in Baltimore, Maryland.[1]
