Tai Chi practitioner tests his skills against Muay Thai fighter – ends BRUTALLY
Tai Chi is a traditional Chinese martial art that is more ‘internal’ and ‘soft’ when compared to other styles. While there may be some general health benefits associated with Tai Chi training, as a form of self-defense, it doesn’t appear to be very effective.
In this video, though, we see a Tai Chi master put his skills and style to the test against a Muay Thai practitioner and it actually lasts a little longer than expected.
As previously stated, there may be some general health benefits associated with Tai Chi training but fighting a legitimate, trained fighter like this guy does here is more so detrimental to one’s health.
This so-called Tai Chi ‘master’ clearly has no idea how to fight or defend himself properly and the only reason this fight lasts longer than a few seconds is because the Muay Thai guy wants it to, for whatever reason.
As you can see in the below video, as soon as the Muay Thai fighter wants to end it, he does so and in brutal fashion too no less. Watch the video below to see how he does it.
ABOUT TAI CHI:
Tai chi (taiji), short for t’ai chi ch’üan (taijiquan; 太极拳), is an internal Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training and its health benefits. The term taiji refers to a philosophy of the forces of yin and yang, related to the moves. Though originally conceived as a martial art, it is also typically practiced for a variety of other personal reasons: competitive wrestling in the format of pushing hands (tui shou), demonstration competitions, and achieving greater longevity. As a result, a multitude of training forms exist, both traditional and modern, which correspond to those aims with differing emphasis. Some training forms of tàijíquán are especially known for being practiced with relatively slow movements. [Source: Wiki]
