No full-contact fighting, but some controlled sparring with beautiful takedowns in this promo for Tim Cartmell's upcoming seminars in France:

The first fight of a Chen taiji student (orangish shirt, red shin guards) from Valencia, Spain at the Spanish kuoshu nationals in Madrid:
From his coach, Johan Duquet:
We started training for Sanda only 3 months prior to the fight so preparation time was limited. I decided to make him work on closing the distance, give some close range shots to disorient his opponent and then take him down using what he had worked on before in pushhands practice.
First critique should be that he didn't keep his guard up at all but I have been working on that a lot with him after the fight and I believe that has been corrected ...
I like the reffing at this event, which was not over eager to break the clinch. This is a fine format for CMA students to work on practical skills.
The school is Shen Yi Valencia. The instructor is a taijiquan student of Fu Neng Bin (a many time champion of push hands in China). Pleasingly, they also seem to include modern condition work in their curriculum:

Has anyone ever heard of the 武林大会 Wulin Dahui tournaments in China? They feature all traditional arts and are fought on a Leitai with no head shots allowed but it seems most else. I have heard that is rigged, though. Would anyone be interested if I dig up videos from Chinese sites? Unfortunately I can't watch these with YouTube being blocked here. ;(

Same school from Valencia, Spain. This is some sloppy fighting, but I'm posting it here because the fellow in the black helmut/chest guard is a Chen taiji student with only six months of training:
(as per "it takes ten years to learn to fight")

I don't love the technical level here, but I'm happy to see them in the ring.
