Another video pulled in from the video forum. This is Ayran Howie, an IMA-based san shou fighter from Vancouver who cross-trains in BJJ, in his first MMA fight:
His sifu, Shouyu Liang, is a well-respected taiji, xingyi and bagua player from Bao Ding province who also knows a great deal about shuai jiao/kuai jiao (the difference between which he explains in this interview):
"Taiji have lots of shuai jiao."

I never looked at Shou yu Liang's site. It looks pretty nice. Does anyone here train with him or his students?

Baji circa 1988?
The above is for all the people that want some "Movie Fu" looking techniques.
I know, it looks like no punching to the head. Still, that is some pretty good contact that us oldsters try to tell you did exist in CMA.
Yes, it is what many of us try to say. TCMA did spar, they wore gear, and weren't to deadly.

And here's a Baji two-man set that looks very much like the fighting in the above video:

It Is Fake,
I have two questions about the sparring in the xingyi video.
First of all, from what I've seen of xingyi techniques, they don't include many kicks. But here I see side, roundhouse, low, high kicks etc. Are they usually a part of the XY curriculum?
Secondly, are any of the sparring guys using any of the five element fists in those clips? They may well be, I'm just not experienced enough to really pick them out.
