Kung Fu: Techniques Against Western Boxing
Here's the clip:
Here's the explanation:
How would you fight a boxer who is very agile? Using the Double Dragon Hands at the Box-Arrow Stance is an effective way to keep an agile boxer at bay. This video clip was taken from a training session conducted by Sifu Kai Uwe Jettkandt of Germany for students of Shaolin Wahnam.
Here's the site:
Here are some of the problems:
1) They are not really keeping the "boxers" at bay.
2) They spend way to much time in the boxers' strike zone.
3) Keeping their lead hand outstretched is inviting disaster.
4) They square off and swith stances while in the strike zone, opening themselves up.
5) WTF are those "boxers" doing, exactly?
6) Gimme a break.
I am not trying to bash TMA or CMA wholesale here. In fact, I would appreciate it if someone with a CMA background could comment.

I love how the concept of fending off trained boxers is somehow transformed into sticking your hands out toward dorky guys in sweats who are too busy grooving to the third-level song in Dance Dance Revolution! to actually throw a punch.
Naturally, this video was taken a long time ago and the young, sterling men practicing have since headed down to an actual boxing gym to practice this against actual boxers. Where can I find that video?
This is how you keep non-violent joggers at bay....
Um....don't boxers throw punches?
thanks for the comic relief, many of the vids on that site had me laughing pretty good

I don't understand this "punching" you are talking about...

Ugh. Ok, so it is footwork drilling.
I'm suspect at best on this, however, they do seem to understand the philosophy of Bullshido.
Combat Applications of Shaolin Kungfu
"Today it has become a norm that a kungfu student does not know how to defend himself even if he has learnt so-called kungfu for many years. Some even wonder whether kungfu can be used for fighting."
That is what everyone says about every other style of kung fu and why they're inferior. And then they go and practice in exactly the same way.

Any of those guys would get eaten alive by even the most mediocre of boxing students with anything more than two or three months of training.
I've got a book by the GM of that Wanham association. I gave it a thumbsdown mini-review here :-
