    What was he expecting? Regardless of how I feel about the fake KF masters he was exposing, itís obvious that Xu isnít exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer.

    Agreed.

    As for XXD being an unskilled, unintelligent (some may say brutish) fighter, I agree that the “TCMA masters” who have been humiliated by him should feel even more embarrassed about it. ...

    The audience was probably almost exclusively made up of Mainland Chinese wanting to see XXD demolish a flabby Japanese kickboxer. Probably not what the native crowd would care much about.

    He was NOT talking about Shuai Jiao. He is saying “Shi Jia” and the Chinese characters for “Shi Jia” or whatever style it is appear at the bottom left of the screen at about 0:10. I’d never heard...

    Even though many TCMA are indeed brilliant in concept, they still need to be adapted for the ring if they are to be contested in this manner, When I lived in Taiwan, I was friends with (and...

    Djuan,

    I seriously doubt that any Japanese sensei is or are behind this trend to discredit kung fu. Many Chinese themselves have little respect for TCMA. When I lived in Taiwan, the number one...

    That is true.

    My point was that Chen Xiaowang is famous for good reason, and is not some fraud who only proclaims himself a world-renowned grandmaster. The tone of the article seemed to imply...

    Nicolas Atkin, the guy who wrote that last article, seems to be taking a rather disrespectful attitude towards Chen Xiaowang, calling him "self-proclaimed world-renowned." Now I don't personally...

    Gene, not necessarily one-armed, but more like he held one arm behind his back. Check out the last photo in your previous post with the bald guy punching the guy in red.
