    DUDE! That's my old landlord/friend's tai chi teacher! NO ****! Never seen him work, but if his students are any indication...blaaaah
    Secret moves such as hitting a thing with your hand and hitting a thing with your leg have been stolen and degenerated by arts like karate, boxing, muay-thai, Kung-fu, and basketball. -Epicurious

    I figure fighting a group of chunners would be like water torture, its not the force as such, just the constant trickle of chain punches wearing down your sanity. -The Juggernoob

    actually that dude has been practicing for years. He's just trying to make a living at it now. Check out his sparring clips....

    Are those sparring clips indicative of a tai chi grandmaster's skill level? I'm not saying they're not mind you, I'm just asking. It looks to me like he's just flapping his arms at his opponent's head.

    What's with the push hands clips? It's just him pushing a smaller guy against a wall. Heck, I can do that. I've seen a lot of push hands, and it's generally a mutual endeavor.

    By "sparring" you mean the fat weird crossdresser guy pushing the skinny wimpy guy into the wall?

    I really don't think he's a grandmaster now is he?? On another note, his sticky hands look decent.

    He claims to be a grandmaster on his site.

    "In 1995 Mark was named grandmaster of the form Lee Wah Yook Qi Quan by the World Headfounders Council after much review and testing. He was only the 13th person to be named grandmaster by this orginazation."

    and

    "We know that Glam Rock/Taijiquan sites are kind of rare, but as *Grandmaster of Lee Wah Yook Qi Quan* Mark Bram teaches balance in all things, so we're sure that this all makes sense on some cosmic level"

    You're right Skummer, I missed that! Anyway, it seems his teacher was more of a Kung-Fu guy. His teacher "made up" his own version of Yang style TC - this is most likely NOT a good thing. I do know this much though... his teacher studied for a while with my current teacher but I really don't think he went through the complete curriculum. You can take it from there.....
