Article Concerns

I know this article is just starting out, but there are many things that could be added to it now that it's been properly started off.

The main concern for the article is just expansion; to do this:

  1. Keep the Wikipedia information relevant and brief; if the whole article is just information copied over from Wikipedia, then there's no point in having a separate article of it on this wiki!
  2. Keep it canon to the Kung Fu Panda universe; same as above, if it's just all about the term "kung fu", it's pretty pointless to have a separate article on it. Some ideas for this could be to:
  • Place sections accordingly; some ideas:
    • Brief definition of "kung fu" (can be both Wikipedia info and canon KFP universe info)
    • A well-accounted history of Kung Fu according to the canonicity of the Kung Fu Panda universe:
      • The story of Master Oogway forming the system (as narrated from the "Legend of the Legendary Warrior" series) would be a good start to this;
      • List of known Kung Fu masters (old and current);
      • List of the known battles, like the Battle of Weeping River (mentioned in the movie) and the Battle of Burning Sky (mentioned on the official site telling about the Chih Kuan Crane Clan).
    • The various styles of Kung Fu
    • Known holds and techniques (like the Wuxi Finger Hold or the chi-blocking nerve attack)
    • Something mentioning the events of Secrets of the Furious Five when Po was teaching an "Intro to Kung Fu" class
  • Pictures won't hurt, but keep them relevant to the information already there; in other words, leave this for last.

This is just a basic run-through, but I hope this proves a good aid to those who wish to help out so I don't have to do all this myself. --§ροττεδςταr (talkcontribs) 01:03, December 24, 2010 (UTC)
