Abstract: By basing their research foundation and reference on related historical data and predecessors’ researches, and by basing the time sequence on the historical evolution of Central Martial Art Museum (CMAM), the authors re-studied the historical fact that ZHANG Zhi-jiang etc strived for the official nature of CMAM, and put forward the fol-lowing opinions: CMAM had never been officially included into the official administrative system, its nature of an as-sociation founded spontaneously by folks had never been changed, for which there were four reasons: 1)the loss of in-dependency due to overly reliance on politics; 2)it was closely related to the change of the government’s own organiza-tional system; 3)there were many contradictions between an ideal blueprint and reality; 4)there were differences be-tween ZHANG Zhi-jiang etc and the authority in terms of the understanding of the relationship between Wushu and sport. The authors drew the following conclusions: from the perspective of organizational attribute, CMAM should be a folk association managed by folks and sponsored by the government; from the perspective of history, the success of a Wushu organization is not inevitably related to whether it has an official identity, but needs to be attributed in multiple aspects; the historical merits of ZHANG Zhi-jiang and CMAM deserve to be affirmed.
