there are lots of movies cinemised for kunfu and other martial arts but the most famous films were for kung fu I think. I have never seen a person who said: I know kung fu

I have seen karate masters, taekwando masters, I have seen even capoerists but never met a person with the knowledge of kungfu. I want to ask now:

is kung fu a fictious martial art or does it exist in real life? is there anybody among you who knows kung fu? or do you know a person who knows kungfu? or have you met him/her?

It is just a slur/blanket term that people use instead of calling the specific martial art they are talking about by its name. You could say that there isn't actually a martial art called kung fu, or you could say that it refers to all Chinese/Asian martial arts.

No. Nothing exists.

In all actuality, yes. Kung fu does exist as a martial art, but is better understood as a family of related arts.

Technically yes, but Kung Fu or Gung Fu is an English pronunciation.

In China, it is refered to as Wushu. It isn't a single form of martial arts but a family of martial arts which were developed in China. I do know someone who practices a form of Wushu.

Look up Wushu and you'll find the information that you want.
