    Anyway, heres a clip of me punching a guy in the head lots. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yLjQPpTaqCQ
    It doesn't look "Deadly" for sparring...nice hand work! Down side... you pay no attention to your legs..leaves a lot open to attack, take downs, etc.

    We spend a lot of time on wrestling and takedowns in class, I guess Liokault just wasn't concerned because he could see he had the guy running away.

    He's fat and fast. The chest protector was actually holding his gut in.

    By "Style" here I just mean general variety: Yang, Chen, Wu, etc.

    Hello, long time lurker, first time poster. I've been doing Tai Chi Chuan for 12 years now (Wu style) and my instructor was from Hong Kong. I studied Tai Chi Chuan to complement the other arts I've been practicing and I found it to be good in the sense that it helped me build up my defense by helping with my balance, deflection and blocking (ie. "sticky" hands, forms). I've found it useful when I've actually been in real brawls, though I would not feel comfortable using the strikes or joint locks (though they can be useful if the situation presents itself) since other MAs I've trained in have a better approach. I guess what I'm trying to say is don't completely ignore the usefulness of this martial art. Every MA has its strong points and weak points and it's up to the individual to evaluate and use it as they see fit. And yes, nothing beats a real world fight experience to overcome the psychological and training misnomers.
