As a form of sports activities with great national cultural characteristics, martial arts is encountering diachronic intergenerational conflicts in contemporary society, exposing many chaos and controversies. The article analyzes that the difference in thinking between Eastern classical philosophy and Western scientific logic is the deep root cause of the intergenerational conflicts in the inheritance of the current martial arts culture. People's correct understanding of the actual contradiction between the standard of martial arts and the multi-value appeal is a must in the process of quanwemartial arts cultural dissemination. The road will inevitably go through a long and tortuous process. The resolution of intergenerational conflicts in martial arts depends on conscious disenchantment and ecological reshaping under the guidance of scientific methodology.
