    It was a "fight" between a wu style taiji master and a younger white crane guy to prove that taiji was "for real". By all accounts it's a pretty poor show.

    I just don't understand why everyone here has to apply everything to NHB/UFC. The person that tries to rob or jump you most likely will NOT be a UFC grappler. If you are a decent MA at all, you should have a huge advantage over the average Joe-Bum-**** who tries to bitch you out. Whateva!
    They'll probably be as proficient striking as they are grappling. That is to say, they'll probably be sloppy, but that doesn't mean they can't hurt you. If a guy knocks you down and happens to land on top, it doesn't take a genius to see what's coming next.

    Well they were clearly using those systems tactics, such as moving, breathing and attacking the opponent.
    High five.

    Hello

    Dont know of any videos of tai chi fighting but you should check out
    http://www.taichichuan.co.uk

    Its the site of a guy called Dan Dochety who practices Wudang style tai chi and has takes a much more practical view of the art. He fought in a couple of martial arts tournaments in the late 70s early 80s and did well. Dont know if he does books or videos but his site is worth a look.

    hope this helps.

    i saw that taiji and the god of karate article before. however, on the KKmail site, it says that Oyama learned from a japanese guy who learned yichuan in china. is that what this story is based on or did oyama really fight a tai chi master? does anyone have a reliable source?

    also, i think this is why san shou was developed. though i think it would be hard to find a tai chi teacher who's into san shou, especially here in the states.

    I can assure you, the art it's self won't.

    What a great display of slap fu. They don't even keep their hands up.
