RE: Tai Chi Master vs Judo Black Belt
this reeks of chinese propaganda. don't believe it.

if real, I would be very very surprised.

soft styles are a good supplement for those who have already mastered a hard style.

RE: Tai Chi Master vs Judo Black Belt
I've seen this before.

Trying to Root yourself Tai Chi style doesn't work against Judo because Judoka use upper-body grips to break your posture and bend you over your center-of-balance. You can have steady base, but when they're whipping you side to side and attacking with combinations, you're going to loose your balance. There is a reason Judoka stay 50/50 Balance and shuffle their feet.

This Judo guy either:
-Sucks
-Isn't Legit
-Has never grappled NoGi
-Is intentionally botching his attacks
-Is letting the Tai Chi master win out of respect
-Is taking a fall for Chinese Cultural Television

Tai Chi Push-Hands is useful for Grappling. One of the Blackbelts at my Gym did Tai Chi while teaching BJJ in Taiwan for a couple years, and it's very difficult to get any grip on him. A lot of takedowns rely on your opponent resisting and when they're yielding with their arms and keeping their balance centered it can be like trying to grab a fish.

I've thought the same of the show Kung Fu Quest. They'll do stuff like have a Mantis/Wing Chun guy spar a 'Muay Thai' fighter, who ends up being a metro Chinese college kid who is still mainly Kung Fu, but adds some gentle roundhouse kicks and knees.

I still like the show.

RE: Tai Chi Master vs Judo Black Belt
the psych takeway is that chinese martial arts is better than Japanese martial arts.

put up all the top tai chi guys against the top judo guys. judo wins 100/100

soft styles are supplementary for people who have already mastered the hard stuff. it is the finishing touch. it cannot be used standalone.

RE: Tai Chi Master vs Judo Black Belt
wing chun is legit and is scientific. problem is they don't do conditioning.

i do think a JKD modified wing chun style can be very effective.

Totally agree. It's horrible as a foundation but it methodically teaches the finesse that hard-stylists learn through 10-15 years of experience.

I think Wing Chun is one of Kung Fu's only hopes for a complete system.

The Chinese in general need to start gloving-up and sparring.
The way they do it now leads to non-committal slap-fighting.
Always sparring on concrete also keeps them from learning any grappling.
