Re: M.M.A. Fighter's Pummeling of Tai Chi Master Rattles China

That was pretty sad, as soon as the Tai-Chi Master got hit in the face he has no clue what to do. I only wish the MMA fighter demonstrated a little more range of skill and transitioned from ground and pound to BJJ to show off some submission skills. I don't think the Chinese would have been as upset if they whitnesses what they might accept as a well versed and skilled MMA martial artist defeating a traditional master vs. what they only see as a brawler over powering someone. Then again this was a fight and ending it quickly is always better than dragging things out and giving your oponent a punchers chance.

Wei also made comments after fight, stating that the only reason he lost to Xu was because he was showing mercy and refraining from using his ‘internal strength.' Wei reportedly said he feared Xu would be killed, had he used his full array of skills.
That explains everything.

Kudos to the tai chi "master" for steping up to the challenge. The outcome was of course the only plausible one when he was holding back his fearsome IP. It speaks highly of his moral integrity that he rather will run backwards, get knocked out and tarnish the reputation of tai chi as a martial art then hurting his opponent.

Well at least it seems no one was seriously injured. Could see it easily ended badly for either party, especially if the spectators got upset.
