By using the method of combining oral history of martial artists with literature review, 13 martial arts experts were interviewed to study the internationalization of competitive martial arts routines. The internationalization development of competitive Wushu routines also has the problems of "uneven scale of development of various countries" and "lack of strict evaluation criteria". Four countermeasures are put forward: 1) simplifying actions and establishing normative standards; 2) establishing a fair and just arbitration system and coordinating evaluation methods.
