Can't see the video at the moment, but I think it depends on the kung fu.
Kung fu is a general term, used in reference to martial arts it's better to state Wushu.
Martial arts are both the style and the student. You can have someone who studies the best style in the world, and the student can still perform
poorly. While, to the opposite, you can have a near perfect student, and the style can fail them.
I take Tae Kwan Do and do MMA. Currently I'm looking at a Kung Fu academy near here that offers a style influenced by Persian martial arts.
I've had some training in a Persian Fight Club, and found a lot of similar moves in MMA.
