    (Take not that a boxer’s strong point is not his techniques, but his speed.)


    WTF is he trying to say here? Even ignoring the typo this makes no sense. Am I misunderstanding this or is this a kung fu guy that thinks boxing is all speed with no power? Or does he think the punches are low percentage techniques? Or does he just generally look down on boxing for some vague reason that he can't explain?

    He looks down on boxing because it's not Chinese. And he doesn't teach it. I remember reading about a mongolian kung fu/shiao Jiao guy that said he challenged a boxer and wound up in the hospital. I wish I still had the issue-quote "don't underestimate boxers!"

    Boxing "technique" is terrible because there's only a few punches and not the hundreds of strikes and forms and whatever. I mean, a 1-2 combo? That's not nearly as awesome as flying dragon spys the eagle into tiger claw lightning upper!
    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    I'll have to remember, that while sparring a gung fu guy, that I don't bounce around too much and fall into his trap.

    In that picture its like the Kung Fu guy is presenting his head for a perfectly placed right hand directly chin. Its even at the angle to provide the most jarring of the head possible. If I ever get an MMA fight, I hope it's against someone who is trained that way. Automatic highlite reel KO.

    But don't forget, when he blocked he hit your pressure point on you forarm, which numbed your whole body, so that he can come back with crane beak attack with his right hand.

    That's only if he hit two or three PP's in that one shot, right?

    Another comment from the website....

    <<<Grandmaster Ho knew this very well for he himself was a former professional Muay Thai champion>>>

    surely this could be verified if it was true?
