Here's some Chen Tai Chi being used. If you haven't seen Tai Chi used for combat then you may find this interesting.

This is more what "combat" Tai Chi looks like when you make it real time with a truly resisting opponent.

Here's a clip of Nick Osipczak. He's an mma fighter with some Tai Chi training. Reading the comments section it seems to be debatable which parts of his game is Tai Chi vs other styles. But from what I've seen of some Tai Chi fighting demos I think Nick's use of evasion and throws may be Tai Chi oriented.

Sort of looks like a basic wrestling pummel drill. Not sure I'm buying a couple of the push off falls by the uki. Wonder what that drill would like if they went for more arm drags and/or duck unders.

Or some high school kid that's wrestled for a couple of years.
