Fight Commentary Breakdowns
Nov 12, 2020

We have sanda, boxing, and kickboxing coach and former champion Zhang Yun Xiang explain some of his applications of Tai Chi and Xingyi to boxing and kickboxing. The whole debate related to Traditional Chinese Martial Arts (TCMA) and its efficacy gets a very interesting lens in this featurette. Let's watch, analyze, learn, and think about Chinese Kungfu and Chinese martial arts. Do you agree with Coach Zhang and his thoughts on how these three Tai Chi moves can work in combat sports or in other situations? Leave your comments and let us know what you saw and if you think the demonstrations were correct.

Interesting that the sanda coach mentioned Ren Zhongxin

It's like he's restricting himself by having to channel everything he's doing through a "Tai Chi" filter. Remove all references to Tai Chi and form movements and this video would be better.
