    Wait..WTF?....I don't believe my lying eyes!

    Tai Chi posted on a MMA site!

    It took 25 years, LOL!

    All seriousness Chi Kung and Tai Chi has been my warm up since being sidelined 13 years ago from surgery. One of the older senior students at our Judo club had trained it for years and trained me for five years starting a couple of weeks after getting my cast off. He showed me the footwork pattern and slowly brought in the upper body movements as my elbow ROM improved. I remember the first day back on the mat taking no slap breakfalls for my closest competitor in terms of rank for his drilling and light Randori.

    Tai Chi is still a regular part of my warm up and foundational strength regiment. It helps me internally asses my physical daily baseline and identify injuries early and check up with areas that are healing to figure out how hard to go for the rest of morning training and classes at night.

    I had to quit doing judo and aikido for a while when a teen after I broke my knee doing judo. I started doing Taichi as part of my PT/ recovery.
    I had a great teacher, did lots of exercises specific to my knee, and then practical application work, Actually more of that then form work.
    Many of the principles transfer nicely to other martial arts, boxing, and practical applications.

    It's a long video, but I really enjoyed it. The speaker talks about how there's no history or data supporting the kung fu legend of Bodhidharma teaching the 18 fist of lo han. It was actually the military refugee who were seeking shelter within the shaolin temple; they were the ones who taugh the monks kung fu.

    It was a family style. Sort of an offshoot of Yang.
    Taught by Dr William Hu he also taught Lion Dancing, history, and practice another extremely offensive art. The Cantonese Opera. I lost track of him when I left the state, then joined the military...

    My fav TMA people is always those who are honest without illusion of being a fighting machine.

    Refreshing to hear the monk say its 0% about fighting skills.

    tai chi will teach you body control and balance, perhaps fluidity as well. within every martial art, if you look hard enough, there is something that is beneficial and applicable to fighting

    According to who?
    There will differences between lineages just look at all the difference between yip man's students who all learned under the same teach some at the same time some hold fuk Sao with the fingers pointing forward others hold the hand with pointing at your own center line
    Wing Chun kicks are meant to disrupt and break your structure and some lineages use the sidekick some don't

    True. But if only fighting skills is what a person is after. Go to the three Kings:

    - MMA
    - boxing
    - thai / kickboxing
