- Navy SEAL Vs Shaolin Monk.
The Monk is Yi Long.
The Marine is Jay ???(his name is mentioned @2:18)
I'll bet that the Monk spends less than 80% of his training time doing forms LOL. Looks like he does a lot of bag work and hard sparring.
Those deadly Navy Seal techniques look a lot like Thai boxing. Who knew?
Yi Long is an impressive fighter and can take serious damage, but there is a big controversy about his origins. For years Youtube tardlets have been claiming he could not possibly be a real monk because he, you know...fights in the ring.
Part of a traveling martial arts exhibition from China, he beat the ex-SEAL then lost to an American cop, Adrien Grotte in Las Vegas, prompting the Song Mountain Temple itself to weigh in and point out Yi Long is not "th3 r34l" shaolin.
Regarding all the gossip about this Yi Long and the questions about Shaolin Kung Fu, a person in charge of Shaolin Temple's public communication updated his micro-blog on Dec. 24 and claimed that Yi Long is absolutely not a Shaolin monk and certainly not the "No. 1 Shaolin martial arts monk."
He also told Henan Commercial News that it is hard to judge whether Yi Long is a secular disciple of the Shaolin Temple because of the easy procedure of becoming such a member and the huge number of the Shaolin Temple's secular disciples.
Don't we have a thread debating this guy?
Isn't the term "former Marine"?
So when Yi Long wins they claim him as Shaolin, but when he loses it's "Well, he's not 'real' Shaolin"?
WTF is up with that?
Great Yi Long animated gif.
Iron head technique...very goooood.
