    Shaolin fighter Yi Long

    A Shaolin disciple is rising in the Chinese fight circles named Yi Long

    See [运动员资料] 一龙



    Here's a babelfish translation:
    Shaolin Temple Wu Seng a dragon

    A dragon, the Shandong Texas person, in April, 1987 was born, the height 1.76 meters, the body weight 72 kilograms, the Shaolin Temple lay family disciple, practiced Shaolin, the primal chaos, to chant spring, the boxing, the wrestling successively and so on, once attained the Guangdong Foshan international to chant spring the fist 黐 hand challenge match (75 kilograms levels) the champion.

    Splendid nova

    on July 18, 2009, a dragon presents the Henan health to regard the martial arts world wind for the first time, defeats body weight 95 kilogram Wang Zhi to be bright, a dragon displays the hard cloth unlined upper garment in the arena, to chant spring times and so on fist, by slightly wrestles is big, is colorful! Later will defeat in Hou Kui, Hao Zuoqiong, Yang Zhenbin, Wang Yanxin, post tower Ukraine Love · Anton, Zhang Chong, Jin Hongyu and so on extra-curricular to assault the master continuously.

    On December 31, martial arts world wind world assaults fights the Sino-Russian dual meet, a dragon defeats the Russian professional master Quis seat of monarchical government · auspicious, hawk of the nickname Caucasus, from the Caucasus area's hammer of fist hall billy Tess war-god, height 180cm, body weight 70kg, on May 25, 1991 was born, extra-curricular competed 158 fights 152 win 102 KO matches, the occupation competes 25 fights 21 win 16 KO matches, once attained Japan to repair fights the competition champion, the European Tae Kwon Do champion, the Ukraine peaceful fist champion and so on.
    The reason that a dragon maintains does not defeat the success, relies on its Shaolin hard training and chants spring the quick fist:

    The golden bell glass, namely “has a gold to cast Zhong Fuzhao as the name suggests the whole body”, Shaolin one of four big marvelous abilities, is the dharma Zen master creates. Shaolin four big marvelous abilities: The golden bell glass (strengthened defense), Yi Jinjing (strengthened endogenic force), washes the marrow after (strengthened psychic force), the young lad merit (strengthened vitality).

    Chants spring the fist is one kind of ten points scientific style and the artificializing skill at martial arts. Its strong point lies in buries the body to assault, the fist defends quickly closely, the ma bu is nimble and the rise and fall is quick, the offense and defense has both and defends attacks the same time, pays great attention the tamper force with mercy, the physical strength consumption are few. Li Xiaolong establishes truncation fist then stems from chants spring the fist.

    Mudrakes of the Shaolin 72 skill, other name iron legs merit, the formula in verse said: Broom time might obviously, Huang Fengjuan speedily. Two leg hard like iron rods, sweep the enemy physique to break.

    The dragon fourth match, Russia's post tower Ukraine Love · Anton, height 1.93 meters, body weight 90 kilograms. The start, a dragon uses the submergence to fall, because the Anton height reach, the body weight are big, the strength is big, falls the law not to be able to be effective; A dragon change tactic, display fast nimble superiority, after attack hit, withdraws immediately, seeks for the opportunity in circuitous socializing, and hits Anton's support leg by the Shaolin iron legs merit, has taken the competition finally!

    On December 5, a dragon meets head-on the body weight to achieve 93 kilogram Jin Hong the rain, the match is in 2006 the wind and cloud strives for hegemony the year's end second place (finals to lose to Wang Hong auspicious), the rank is big, the strength is strong! Second round, a dragon has withstood Jin Hongyu unexpectedly using the Shaolin hard training the fierce combination fist ......A dragon has utilized diligently the traditional martial arts' essence in the arena actual combat.

    in 2009, a dragon also participated in three outfield matches, respectively is the Henan Luoyang, Shandong Zou Cheng and Anhui Huaibei, the martial arts world wind success altogether 14 fights the total victory, 11 fight the Henan health to regard the direct seeding. Enters in 2010, increases two martial arts world wind common people arena victory, on May 1 the Sino-US dual meet, a dragon will challenge from US's jumbo, body weight 182 kilogram Dweh · Ye Si.

    Although a dragon excels by slightly to wrestle in a big way, but this time surpasses the own body weight 2.5 time of above matches, a dragon can continue does not defeat the success?

    Texas person's pride

    Dezhou located at the Yellow River downstream, Shandong Province's northeast part, the history is glorious, the cultural inside story is rich, had since old times “nine reaches the day qu, god Beijing gateway” name. As soon as mentions Texas, everybody will often associate Texas to dig up the chicken, the Dongling small jujube and yu Wang Ting and so on, will also have “leads” the Chinese solar energy profession emperor bright solar energy groups, but this time must say that will be a Shandong Texas person - - martial arts world wind star dragon.

    A dragon, 24 years old, the martial arts world wind arena success maintain until now from July, 2009 do not defeat, he excels at the Shaolin hard training and chants spring traditional martial arts and so on fist, now martial arts world wind international club training. The Thai ten section of boxing champions extreme are willing to miss (once defeated Japan “fable peaceful boxing champion” Kouzou Takeda) in club teaching period, to a dragon's degree of hardness is also raises up the thumb to commend, said that he cannot repel!

    In the peaceful boxing champion extreme is willing to miss under the help, a dragon own fighting method system, integrated the peaceful fist knee law, to kick lowly and so on technologies, strengthened the striking power. Because competes frequently, a dragon is unable Shaolin Temple to practice, usually except exercises martial arts in the martial arts world wind international club, but also arrives at the fitness club practice instrument, therefore the muscle dragon vigor is powerful, can with surpass the own body weight 10-20 kilograms contestants in the arena to contend with.

    As the saying goes “the Manchurian tiger, the northwest wolf, the Shandong guy is resounding”, the native of Shandong is powerfully built, the loyalty is sincere, is the nation is famous, and is assaulting is also establishes a new school, kick boxing king Liu Hailong, Chinese hero Wang Hong Xiangdu is the native of Shandong, Liu Hailong is the Yantai Laichau person's pride, but Wang Hong Xiang is the Jining Jiaxiang person's pride, in the future, a dragon will become the Texas person arrogantly? Texas's friends, you said?

    Texas person makings how? The Texas locality has historical personage veteran Lian Po, the Warring States time Zhao outstanding strategist, with will be white, Wang Jian, Li Mubing to call “the Warring States four given names”. The change of the seasons, the vicissitudes, the Texas person still had gallops in the past the sandy plain military commander customs handed down from the past! May understand from a dragon body 12, his will tenacious, positive just military might, is maintaining frequently the exuberant fighting spirit!

    A dragon physical quality is quite splendid, many specialized contestants also difficultly compare with it, however a dragon technology waits for consummating, the reason that favors him, was because of his personality charm, modest, intelligent, frank, diligent and so on, young facile could so, gradually influenced except the Buddhism cultures, wanted to come with the Texas native place culture related, ancient times Texas was situated at Yan the Zhao three neighbours, the Yellow River canal puts on the boundary, the Yellow River culture, Yan the Zhao culture, the Qi and Lu culture were well-established, the Da Yu culture, the Confucianist culture were ingrained.

    A dragon said that he thanks each arena match, is precisely the match great strength, stimulates own latent energy unceasingly! “in golden scale can it be that pond thing, as soon as meets the wind and cloud to make the dragon”, in 2010, on a dragon whether a yet higher goal, does become in the martial arts world wind arena Wang Zhe?!
    on April 30, 2010, a dragon KO sea Ye Si, has again proven the Chinese time myth.
    Hoped that this Shaolin boy can more walk is ****her.
    "the wind and cloud strives for hegemony"
    "everybody will often associate Texas to dig up the chicken"
    Man, I love babelfish.

    Shaolin Monk TKO’d by American Kickboxer, and Commercialization
    Adriene Grotte fells Yi Long with one uppercut

    By Li Tianxiao
    Epoch Times Staff Created: Dec 22, 2010 Last Updated: Dec 23, 2010

    There is an online video featuring Yi Long, a “Shaolin number one martial arts monk,” competing against an American fighter, Adrien Grotte, in a kickboxing match in Las Vegas. It came out last month.

    Though it was a serious fight, very few punches were thrown—in fact, it only took one left uppercut from Mr. Grotte in the second round to knock Mr. Yi to the ground. He was down for 44 seconds, constituting a technical knockout.

    Thus was Shaolin’s number one martial arts monk defeated in an overhyped commercial fight in Las Vegas.

    Before that, confident in Mr. Yi’s abilities, a Chinese sports announcer had exaggerated his skills, described him as “mysterious” and “intimidating”; he had even played a short video clip of Mr. Yi in action, meant to “show Americans some real fighting.” The commentator added that he had been “stunned by Mr. Yi’s internal power.” Of course, all this became a rich source of amusement minutes later.

    Those hoping to see a classic battle between Eastern and Western warriors were disappointed (though Mr. Yi did put on a little show before the match, in which he and his four young sidekick monks performed a martial arts routine for the audience.)

    However, it was clear when the match started that Mr. Yi completely lacked a sense of defense, and was no match for his American opponent.

    When Mr. Yi kicked with his left foot, leaving the right side of his face open to attack, Grotte executed a light left punch and ended it all. There was nothing particularly special about Grotte’s kickboxing technique.

    “Don’t let those Shaolin monks run around and make fools of themselves,” a Chinese blogger commented.

    Martial Arts’ True Essence

    Though he was defeated in a matter of seconds, Mr. Yi isn’t a complete novice at martial arts. The main problem is that he can only demonstrate superficial techniques, and that he uses Shaolin martial arts as a tool for cheap entertainment and competition—this is inappropriate. Real, high-level Shaolin martial arts are not meant to be entertaining.

    At the higher stages of discipline, a martial artist would never battle others or perform publicly. The traditional, advanced martial arts still exist in the world; it’s only that people are not permitted see them, according to traditional Chinese lore.

    A Taoist abbot from Wudang Mountain once said that on an autumn night in 1986, a figure floated from behind the mountain; his face was unclear, his body slim; he wore a single layer of clothing and had flowing hair of three to four feet. The figure flew around the palace once and floated back beyond the mountains. Living in remote mountains and deep forests, the message was that these martial art masters would never flaunt their skills so casually to other people.

    Whether such extraordinary tales are true or not—and Chinese traditional culture is filled with them—the true essence of martial arts lies in virtue. Shaolin martial arts are supposed to unite Zen Buddhist philosophy and martial arts. When a real Shaolin master reaches a realm above that of common people, he would have cultivated his mind and given up worldly desires, including the desire to show off.
    Sacred Temple, Now Tourist Attraction

    After it took power in 1949, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) extended its influence into temples, effectively destroying people’s beliefs and sense of virtue, as well as the essence of martial arts.

    In recent years, in keeping with the latest political imperatives, the CCP has attempted to co-opt traditional culture and in doing so has commercialized the temples. The Shaolin temple has become a tourist attraction, and its CEO monk, Shi Yongxin, travels in luxury cars and stays in five-star hotels. He built a Shaolin Theme Park in Hong Kong, and sells Shaolin Herbal Tea, high-priced incense, and books on “secret” martial arts techniques: a sacred tradition has been turned into a money-making machine.

    The Shaolin Temple attracts over two million tourists and makes hundreds of million yuan annually from its attractions and performances, and is still planning for higher market share. Under the influence of the CCP, the Shaolin monks take pride in making profits from their showy performances, stagecraft, and theatre. Is it any wonder that Mr. Yi was knocked to the ground with a single punch?

    In an ironic twist that also hits home, the version of the video of the fight on Chinese state websites abruptly ends after the first round. Chinese culture, or an ersatz representation of it, is now part of the Party’s propaganda arsenal: the second round, where Mr. Yi hits the deck, must not have fit the script and was duly removed.

    so the question now is; is he just going to roll over and give up, or is he going to learn, adapt, and return to fight a better fight?

    I was expecting this...

    ... the lack of a generation name was telling. If you can't even score a generation name, how could you be the No. 1 Shaolin Kung Fu monk? Heck, I have a generation name. How hard can it be to get one?

    Shaolin Temple: Monk KO'd by American not one of us
    16:56, December 28, 2010

    On Dec. 14, a spokesman of the Shaolin Temple claimed through his micro-blog: "Yi Long, who was billed as the No. 1 Shaolin Kung Fu monk, is neither a Kung Fu monk of Shaolin Temple, nor could he be named as the No. 1 Shaolin Kung Fu monk at all." He also told reporters that all the Shaolin monks can be identified on their official website, reported by Henan Commercial News.

    A Kung Fu fighting program named "Wu Lin Feng" in Chinese, which was put on by Henan Province of China, went to Las Vegas, America last month. A featured fight between so-called "Shaolin Kung Fu monk" Yi Long and American police officer Adrien Grotte was held in Nov. 13 at Harrah's Las Vegas Casino and Hotel.

    The fight was supposed to be canceled because no one dared to fight the mysterious Shaolln Kung Fu master who claimed to be the "No.1 Shaolin martial arts monk," until one American police officer, also an ex-member of the U.S. Marine Corps, answered the challenge.

    Before the fighting started, almost everyone predicted that Yi Long would win. However, just 44 seconds into the second round, Yi Long was suddenly punched in his head by the American player and lay on the ground for quite a while. Finally, the referee announced that Adrien Grotte won the game.

    A piece of footage was uploaded to the Internet and named "American Police officer K.O.'s No. 1 Shaolin martial arts monk." Afterward, the peace and quiet was broken suddenly among Chinese netizens. People kept asking "Why is Shaolin Kung Fu so weak?" and "Is Shaolin Kung Fu dying?"

    Some netizens said "don't let those Shaolin monks embarrass China" and some question about the existence of the so-called "No.1 Shaolin martial arts monk" and even the credibility of Shaolin Kung Fu.

    Regarding all the gossip about this Yi Long and the questions about Shaolin Kung Fu, a person in charge of Shaolin Temple's public communication updated his micro-blog on Dec. 24 and claimed that Yi Long is absolutely not a Shaolin monk and certainly not the "No. 1 Shaolin martial arts monk."

    He also told Henan Commercial News that it is hard to judge whether Yi Long is a secular disciple of the Shaolin Temple because of the easy procedure of becoming such a member and the huge number of the Shaolin Temple's secular disciples.

    Action: Shaolin Kung Fu should be protected

    Qiao Fengjie, a professor from Henan University, said it did not make any sense to connect the personal failure with the rise and fall of Chinese martial arts.

    Qiao believes that currently martial arts are divided into two parts. One is competitive martial arts under some rules, and the other is the traditional Chinese martial arts. The competitive martial arts have changed essentially, although there is still some relation with traditional martial arts.

    He also said the real masters would never go public for games but hide themselves for self-practice against loneliness, and that was the real essence of Chinese martial arts.

    However, the traditional Chinese martial arts are in an embarrassing situation just like traditional Chinese medicine, Qiao said, and they need to be protected by the compilation of books and spreading the knowledge from generation to generation.

    Wow, you mean the word "shaolin" and outlandish PR stunts associated together! Who would have thought that could ever happen

    You mean that the Chinese may have tried to engage in something not quite right in a fight and then suffered from not being to careful? NEVER!
