    I'm sure this has already come up here.

    Anyone care to advance an opinion about this guy?

    Get Your Chi on!

    oh my god I just laughed so hard I think I shat myself. Peng you owe Merseyside Police a new pair of uniform trousers.
    I tried my hand at tai chi for about three months and my instructor was an ex-para (a real one before you ask) who was well into self defence applications of tai chi stuff so I respect the concept. But come on "down and dirty tai chi for the str33t". He's got to be full of ****, as I unfortunatly no longer appear to be.

    I was going to say the same thing. Parry and deflecting are the same thing.

    When you parry you are deflecting.

    He does have the right idea. Taijiquan was a combative art that became extremely watered down. He is right that forms are simply tools. So it seems he is trying to bring back tH3 rE@! Taijiquan. I would have to see what his other training methodolgy intails.

    A deflect in this context attacks the arm in a downward fashion, a parry is a deflection to the side. That's one of the problems you run into with translations of these things. We call it "Step forward, deflect downward, parry, and punch" and the movement includes two kicks, two sideways parrys, a rollback, and a punch, as well as multiple other implied strikes.

    I'm not particularly crazy about the way he's illustrating the applications, but it's a step in the right direction.

    Not this guy, no. I just ran across the video online and wanted to see what the scoffers thought.

    I think the single biggest challenge to the promotion of Taiji as a fighting art is that it's hard to see where the action's at.,

    There is no different between a deflection and a parry. Even with these two definitions:
    1. deflect is not an attack
    2. parry being a deflection is circular.

    A parry is a deflection (usually with a weapon) and deflect just means to turn aside or deviate. Circle terms are the enemy. Alot of people won't even consider the existance of an unarmed parry. It would simply be called a deflection.

    Edit: Also what is this guy translating from? English to English?
    Edit: In his video his parry and deflect are both to the side just different sides. He even messes it up while he is demonstrating it by himself. In application he complete disregards the "downward motion".
