I saw this on CCTV 5 last night while I was channel surfing.

The above link goes to the episode that was shown on 2010-12-28 18:35 (GMT +8).

Chen (陈), Sun (孙), Yang (杨), Wu (武), Wu (吴) and Zhao Bao (赵堡) styles are (apparently) represented (most of them are Chen style).

There's a lot more Chinese martial art videos at http://bugu.cntv.cn/sports/other/wulindahui/videopage/index.shtml

Enjoy!

Wushu Masters is a fun show; there's another short thread around here with the Chen episode that Chen Ziqiang won. Thanks for the link. It looks a little rougher than last year—were there rule changes?

I like the physicality in this one much better. They'd all get disqualified in most American tournaments.

Looks like they're allowing more kicks, which of course is leading to a hilarious amount of kick-catching.

Yes, I agree. If it leads to more techniques and morphing of the rules that is a good thing.

Nooo, this is wrong, where is the sung? Where is the proper form? Where is the peace and proper use of qi? This is unclean...

They're all sung! You just can't tell because of your untrained eye. They are sung internally! Under their giant rubber blouses.

Damn those unsanctioned rubber blouses. I'm telling Waysun Liao!

I showed the video to my teacher. He thought they should get rid of the chest guards because they encourage too many kicks, especially bad kicks.

No, that good IMO. Remember how shitty Royce's kicks were in the early UFCs? If they get enough ridicule or feedback they will work on them.

I think he just wanted to see more throws and grappling with strikes coming in when the opponent is vulnerable.

Man, every time I watch Wushu Masters, it seems like the outfits get cooler.
I seriously love all of the posing after executing a throw.
