Not sure this is where to post this but here goes.


November 24, Beijing Time, the Chinese Kung Fu [功夫, gong fu] vs. Professional Thai Kick-boxing Competition Organizing Committee issued a public announcement: The 2009 Chinese Kung Fu vs. Professional Thai Kick-boxing Competition will be held in 2009 December at Foshan in Guangdong. The competition will use Chinese wushu rules as a foundation, integrated with a portion of Thai Kick-boxing rules, allowing the two opposing combatants to use elbows and knee techniques to attack their opponent, with every match having five rounds and each round being three minutes.

I personally can't wait.

It'll be fun trying to spot which of the Thai fighters have been paid to lose.

Hopefully they mean Sanda and are just ignorant. In support of this theory, the blogger doesn't even seem to know what Muay Thai is. If this was the case, the competition would basically be Sanda with knees and elbows added. And would also be awesome.

武术 (wǔ shů) just means martial arts. Really English is in the wrong.

I'm actually hoping that the Muay Thai fighters DON'T fight monks who train for Sanda, but instead square off against monks who only train for the Taolu (forms) aspect of competitive wushu.

The comedic possibilities would be extraordinary.

Everyone's outfit has to register 10 on the 'fruity meter' and all fighting is performed to music

It is Fake

This has been going on for close to a decade. I do find the Shaolin link funny.

It's another Muay Thai versus San Da competition. There have been a lot of these already.
Here's a match with Liu Hailong, who, as far as I can tell, is/was the #1 hotshot in San Da:

From what I understand, these events usually go down about 40/60 in terms of Chinese/Thai victories, with the Thai being the more dominant. The wins the Chinese do get are usually from points from throws.

it seems that when the fights are held in china, more chinese fighters win, but when they are held in thailand, more thai fighters win.

this is not surprising to me in the least.

I liked the bit at 3.09 where the Chinese guy throws the Thai fighter out of the ring over the ropes.

The Chinese comments on that article are amazing, by the way. A LOT of vitriol against the Shaolin Abbot.
"If the Thai boxing champions beat Shi Yongxin to death, then that would be getting rid of Buddhist scum for Buddhism! And ridding the people of an evil!!"

"I truly hope
Thai boxing will defeat our Shaolin boxing.
It is not that I am unkind,
but with people like Shi Yongxin,
a beating would be good."

"Destroy the Shaolin, I’ll be happy! Scum of the Buddhist world."

"I saw the news report before, and in summary, if you invite Shaolin Temple to go participate in the performance, Shi Yongxin says, “Our Shaolin kung fu is not used for performances, it is used to defeat opponents”, but when our countrymen request the Shaolin Temple to go fight in the arena, Shi Yongxin once again changes his words and says, “Our Shaolin wushu is used for strengthening the body and health, to raise individual’s characters…over and over like this. There is definitely too much business/commercialism, making people suspicious."

A friend from Henan recently told me they hold these events quite often. Apparently a couple of years back they held a Sanda vs Boxing and Sanda vs TKD event. He said that the fights usually go about 4-1, or 3-2 in favour to china.

He also said there is currently huge resentment for Abbot Shi Yongxin in the Chinese martial arts community for similar reasons mentioned above.

This seems to be the, poorly translated, fight card
