Pretty interesting article. Apparently this Chinese MMA fighter has been challenging various traditional Chinese martial artists to fights and kicking their ass, in order to expose the "fakery" in traditional Chinese martial arts that have revered status in China.

The crazy part is the communist Chinese government stepping in and shutting down these fights in order to protect the image of the traditional arts.

Well I'm not surprised he beat a Tai Chi master. I don't think there are many who would argue that Tai Chi is an effective form of self defense against other martial arts. Some say Tai Chi as a self-defense is not suitable at all period. I actually tend to agree, at least not by itself.

In both fights, the MMA fighter has the size advantage over his smaller opponents. It's no secret that there are no supernatural secrets in Chinese martial arts. Fighters with background in Chinese martial arts haven't done well at all in the UFC. Jason Delucia is a good example. He fought in UFC 2 and lost and kept on losing until he learned MMA techniques.

To those who have been exposed to Kung Fu styles. Which styles do you think would be effective against most street fighters(around your size)after about 2 years of training? Again,I ask about dealing with street fighters. Most muggers won't know MMA.


Has anyone taken Choy Lay F.ut?

Tai Chai is pretty much a martial art yoga. it is not meant to be used in an actual street fight.

The perfect art form is one that complements your body type. Not all techniques will be suitable to you so you should just use what will work for you. (the bruce lee concept)

For example, doing high kicks is not a great idea for me so i tend to practice low and mid kicks.

For me, learning boxing, muay thai and brazilian jujitsu work best for me. I complement the martial arts with weight and endurance training.

Kung Fu isn't even popular in China apparently:

Several people pointed out in the comment section that Mao Zedong's cultural revolution caused a lot of Kung Fu experts to flee China. This has probably affected Kung Fu in China today.

Considering the rules. I thought that this was a pretty good fight between a Wing Chun stylist and a Karate stylist.
