    ^The guy in the purple is in a posture called "Snake Creeps Down" in Tai Chi. It's a Chinese version of a fireman's carry.

    How exactly do you mean, a fireman's carry?

    wushu talou- a demonstation PRC martial art has 4 requirements per form:

    must contain combinations of kicks, strikes and blocks of that specific style of CMA

    must contain a balance

    must contain a flexibility move

    must contain proper stances of the specific art

    must contain jumps (external) or whiping body (internal) according to the Chinese Martial Art.

    for instance:
    Northern longfist form (chan chuan talou) must contain
    stances 1, 2, 6, 4; a split, a knee up side balance, a needle balance, a butterfly kick, tornado kicks, puching combo, palmstrike, and a feirce glare. Speed is helpful too.

    in the Jing web site the instructors choose postures to show their stance skill, their balance skill, or their flexibility skill.

    This is not about fighting or technique, it's all about training to be in the movies. Orgininally it was training to be in Chinese Opera. (see the wing chun origins thread)

    of cource the rules change every year, just like gymnastics. Plus the music and costumes have totally changed the sport in the past 3 years. But at least athletes now have to use edged weapons!

    I would worry more about XMA than about wushu....

    There is an application of the move "Snake Creeps Down" posture. It's really exaggerated in the form.

    Well their site is huge and too much white coupled with bad formating makes it a painful read. These people seem like pretty avid competitors who 'test' themselves a la dance competitions, in China even, so I mean, not only is this not an issue of fighting and therefore outside of bullshido's realm, they're not even bullshit within the context of sport wushu (or w/e the **** you'd call it).

    That said I'd kinda want to have a friendly 'talk' (involving a possible iranian or suplex) to some of the dorky white folks playing Chinese dress-up and dancing around with sticks when they could use their athletisism and devotion for cool, useless and non-nerdy things like salsa or breakdancing or something else that might help them get laid.
