Upon reading posts from a non-MA related forum. I found one person who was looking for info into martial arts and asking members of the forum for ideas of styles. Which is a typical thing on these sorts of popular forums, where people chat about absolutely nothing.
Now granted, I would have answered this person's request with info on finding a good Kyokushin school or a style closely related. So this guy's post an upload for Kung-fu because according to him "Kung-fu can fight any styleĒ. So I don't say anything because everyone is untitled to their opinion. So I download the clip. The film is bad. It looks like it was made with a 25 year old camcord. But thatís not what got my attention.
What I really noticed is that it shows nothing. Itís a joke. It shows what we would expect. The Shaolin guy look's Ok. But I mean what do I know, I do Karate.
Thatís why I created this post. Why can't Kung-fu guys find a good decent clip? Now I was a little reluctant to start this thread because I know how everyone is tired
of 'style vs. style' debates.There's thousands of people in the world and noone can post a decent clip of a kung-fu guy defeating an opponent made in the last 10 years.
But this clip http://www.megaupload.com/?d=B7QZNJ3B :jerkit2yf

I have to give it to the shaolin guy. His d was pretty good but I kept waiting for him to hit back.
There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

I couldn't watch the clip...my computer is kind of crazy I guess.
I have to say that I consider myself a kung fu guy and I never saw a clip of a kung fu fighter using their style against others in a convincly manner. When you actually see them, they're using sanda techniques or just plain kickboxing! I would be happy to see that in here!

That was some of the worst point sparring that I've seen in my life. I mean......that was point sparring, wasn't it? :dontknow:

That was suppose to be the 'best' clip to show off the ability of a Kung-fu practitioner.My beef is if you are going to give a clip for people to watch ,atleast find a good one.

What are you guys talking about? That was a cool video. Complete with slo-mo replays. Yay slo-mo! And that sweet spinning flying kick thingy by the Shaolin guy! Awesome!
I like how Shaolin guy blocked everything, TKD guy didn't block ****.

Isn't the shaolin guy breaking some sort of shaolin code by competing in a tournament, or performing, or demonstrating, or whatever the **** he and that TKD guy were doing?

Interesting clip. They're both very good at kicking air.

It's like they have no clue what lateral movement is. That Shaolin guy would just eat kicks, if they had any power to them.

Style: Sanda, BJJ
There are plenty of Kickboxers and MMAers who have roots in various Kung Fu styles. Omega does Kung Fu...Asia does Kung Fu... even the great JFS USA does Kung Fu.
We have a clip of Asia owning...doesn't that count?

I really like the flow of the sho fighter. He didn't even seem to take the tkd fighter serious. It did appear that the tkd fighter was caught with a spinning back kick, but there was no damage in that kick. And he must have very tough hands to keep catching those kicks like that, so I guess his training has paidoff more than he is showing on this vid.

I really liked those palm blocks on the taekwondo's kicks, if only the worked against strong kicks. I'm thinking it was staged.
Maybe it was just my media player but the Kung Fu guy had a MASSIVE glow on him, must have been his chi showing up on camera!

Hm, why in the world did the TKD guy try to use a front-leg rounhouse to the same area like 5 times in a row at the beginning of the match? Kick...pause...kick....pause....etc. And maybe its just me, but I didn't even see a sidekick thrown once.

That was completely staged. They're obviously not even trying to hit eachother, there are several instances where they are about to hit the other and they'll actually pull techniques.
Someone posted this on myspace as proof of kung fu being badass and I went through and did move by move breakdown. It's very obviously faked when you look at it.

If it's choreographed, then it sucks. If it's not, it still sucks.
