    Look what I found.

    With people wondering about Tai Chi being used in the ring, I wonder what everyone thinks of this man

    He came from a karate background and AFAIK had less than a year training in TCC before that comeptition.

    According to the article he fought in 1976 and 1980. The time he fought in 1980 would have given him 4 years of training.

    Yeah I've known about Docherty for a long time & Tai Chi, if trained REALISTICALLY, probably has good techniques in it.

    He isn't pure TC but he uses Tai Chi and his other moves are given the tai chi treatment.

    I just wonder if he will get pissey about tai chi when it is done well.

    He needs to fight some more if he expects people to believe him.

    He's too old now anyway, it wouldn't prove anything one way or the other.
