Kung Fu practitioner throws down in the cage – ends SHOCKINGLY
Kung Fu, more correctly known just as Chinese martial arts, are a style of martial arts with a lot of interesting history and legend behind it which produced such legendary figures as Bruce Lee, Ip Man, Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Donnie Yen and many others.
However, with that being said, for some reason, Chinese martial arts just don’t seem to hold up in modern day MMA or kickboxing competitions, at least most of the time.
Nevertheless, in this instance in the video below, we actually see a Kung Fu practitioner throw down in the cage and, surprisingly, he not only wins, but he pretty much dominates his opponent and finishes him emphatically.
We see in the opening clip on the video, the Kung Fu guy is warming up with some forms before heading out in what looks to be an amateur kickboxing match contested inside an MMA cage.
Although directly practicing forms and kata in traditional martial arts may not be all that beneficial to actual fighting ability, it can definitely help your mental game and get you in the right mindset for fighting.
Also, the act of practicing certain movements over and over and focusing on your technique can be carried over to many other aspects of martial arts training such as drilling techniques as well as strength and conditioning training.
Check out the video below to see how the Kung Fu guy finishes his opponent in this one-sided bout.
ABOUT CHINESE MARTIAL ARTS:
Chinese martial arts, often named under the umbrella terms kung fu and wushu, are the several hundred fighting styles that have developed over the centuries in China. These fighting styles are often classified according to common traits, identified as “families”, “sects” or “schools” of martial arts. Examples of such traits include Shaolinquan physical exercises involving Five Animals mimicry, or training methods inspired by Old Chinese philosophies, religions, and legends. Styles that focus on qi manipulation are called internal, while others that concentrate on improving muscle and cardiovascular fitness are called “external”. Geographical association, as in northern and “southern”, is another popular classification method. [Source: Wiki]
