    Im pretty sure its Chinese wrestling, Im not sure about competition rules but Im certain there is no groundwork and the techniques Ive seen resemble weak Judo and Greco-Roman.

    I have 2 videos for you to look at:

    1) Shuai Jiao Demo by Cheng Dong Sheng (pretty ordinary)
    http://www.huizucn.com/show/content.asp?ArticleID=499

    2) Shuai Jiao in action (better - more realistic)
    http://emptyflower.stanford.edu/video/another_bagua_fight.WMV

    It reminds me a bit of SanShou/Sanda.

    The first vid is clearly just a demo (not the best technique IMHO, although it is an old fella doing the demo & he does still move well for his apparent age). Interesting though how it appears to combine Aikido & Judo.

    The second vid shows how good anticipation can really let you smash an opponent - Considering the dude got repeatedly pwned he must've felt pretty demoralised.

    Yes - a few people have mentioned that the commentary says something about "good judo" or similar.

    Its a vert great and underrated art. I have a bunch of vids of matches I got a long time ago on a DVD-R disc somewhere. Maybe i'll dig it up. There are actully different styles of SJ. I have seen one style that looks nothing like Judo or Greco-Roman wrestling. It was alot more Freestyle looking than anything. I remember there being some sweet fireman carries being done. I might be describing the video above...I should probably check this out :p

    Okay, it isnt that vid. The one I have has the fighter fighting in a pit, filled with sand. Its actully more of a arena than pit. The grapplers look like that would do really well in freestyle wrestling, and chances are they probably do compete in freestyle. Thanks for the vid BTW.

    Wow, i am really feeling that vid. If they allowed strikes to the face and threw in some boxing gloves, it would make a nice Shootboxing match :p (they would also have to add standing submissions, or it would just be a nice San Da match instead.)

    shuai Jao does have ground work, although they would rather kick you in the head like
    Wandy before they engage in the ground.

    LOL, Well my last post means nothing now. Goes to show how much I know :/
    Care to give us some information on the ground work of Shuai? Everything I have is all based on throws and takedowns, would love to see how the ground game works.

    Awesome, it's been ages since I've seen that clip. Thanks for posting it.

    I love the bullfighter referee - I keep expecting some mad bull to run into the arena!!

    Is this SJ though? It looks completely different to the video I posted above so now I'm somewhat confused (although the explaination of a "few different styles of SJ" is probably the answer).

    From what I've seen Shuai Jiao is sort of like Judo+TKD, where San Shou is like Judo+Muay Thai... & San Da is another sort of San Shou?

    Honestly Ive never seen any groundwork in shuai Jao or Chin-na for that matter, including some old kung-fu movies where they use shuai Jao techniques. All the sources Ive seen were hard, quick, throws that resemble Judo, Greco, or Pankration throws.

    Shuaijiao means wrestling in Chinese. I assume the thread starter meant Chinese wrestling.
    As it is practiced now Shuaijiao competition allow throws. Good dry throws can bring 2 points, but if your opponent put anything than his 2 feets on the ground one point will be granted to you.
    There is no ground work as you understand. There is no punches, no sub, no pressure points.

    Competitions are open to all wrestlers whatever their style of origine (judo, FW, GRwrestling, mongolian wrestling) with the restriction that all participants have to to fight with long pants, wrestling shoes, and a top that is like a short-sleeved tight to the body judogi.

    Chinese wrestling/shuaijiao is really interesting,mainly due to the quality of the drills it has developed to increase the balance and coordination of a practitioner's throws. Try it if you have the chance.
