Re: Full contact taiji

I'm always curious about the relationship between the people in the clip and the objective of the sparring. . .

But otherwise, very impressive.

Thanks for posting it.

Re: Full contact taiji

I've been told the gentleman's name is Tian Jinlong. You can see an interview with him here, starting from around 3:00

LOL - he does a slightly more credible job of manhandling the news-reporter than tohei did, doesn't he? (OTOH, the news reporter seems to be somewhat cluey too)

Re: Full contact taiji

So the kick-boxer/Sanshou looking dude is a newsreporter?

I didn't say that; they appear to be two entirely different guys (in two entirely different clips) getting their butts kicked

Re: Full contact taiji

Sorry, didn't know you were talking about a different dude. Can't see the video here at work.

Cool! Thanks for posting it. My resolution isn't so good and it reminded me of another set of videos I saw with Chen Bing.
...Go figure, a couple of taiji guys might look similar.
Thanks again.
