Thread: Is San Shou considered Kung Fu?

Don't get me wrong, I encourage crosstraining with other styles of different countries, but you would expect that a Sanda school would get their throwing from Shuai Jiao and then crosstrain with Judoka to improve their Sanda and not vice versa.

However, certain aspects our Traditional forms were incorporated into the Sanda training. We did not ever use instructors from outside, although a lot of our guys did crosstrain Muay Thai.

So if I understand correctly, the single techniques that made up (your school's) Sanda came from CMAs (with probably English Boxing for striking techniques), but modified to have maximum effect under that ruleset with some minor aspects of the Wushu forms so that a knowledgable outsider could say that in Sanda school A, the Wushu that is tought there is Baji Quan and in Sanda school B, it would be Tai Chi Chuan, etc...Originally Posted by Jiujitsu77Originally Posted by HumanzeeOriginally Posted by jk55299 on Keysi Fighting Method

No, not necessarily. There are two types of schools the one Art is talking about and others that teach classical wushu with forms and technique applicability that compete in Sanda.

How is the distinction made between these forms of Sanda? Because if you train for competing in the first form and on competition night you end up in the ring of the third form, your not going to be very happy.
Or am I seeing the evolution of Sanda here and is the third form nowadays the standard?Originally Posted by Jiujitsu77Originally Posted by HumanzeeOriginally Posted by jk55299 on Keysi Fighting Method

3 different variations. The first is close to original San Shou. San Da (IMO) is the next evolution of San Shou. Remember there is also Kou Shu.
BTW I've competed in Draka which is a Russian form of San Shou. You were able to throw them over the rope.

How do you distinguish between boxing? You don't. Yes, I know there are different "styles" of boxing and training for boxing. They all compete in boxing. How they GET to the competition is irrelevant as well as how they trained. The results are how you realize if your training is good, mediocre, or poor. You are trying to mix training methodologies with the actual competition.
Hell, when a boxer trains poorly they are unhappy as well. Same with someone competing in MMA. If anything, you train for the ruleset in which you will compete.
Aslo, Go see Tae_Bo's and Omega's earlier explanations.
