Those fighters are certainly willing to do more than me, especially at my current age, and I respect their ability.
I don't know much about Muay Thai, but is this the usual format? For instance, are those the normal gloves used? Are double-leg tackles usually permitted? I think of Muay Thai as having different characteristic hand positions and focusing more on gaining the Plum (?) position for knee attacks. In this format, I found it a little difficult to distinguish the signature characteristics of the styles, beside observing a preference for different types of kicks.
By the way, I had never heard about cntjq.net
(English version) before. Those especially interested in Chen Style should definitely check it out. There is also a video section
(Chinese only) with videos of other styles as well. Here are links to videos from Chen Style
, Yang Style
, Wu (Jianquan) Style
, Wuu (Hao) Style
, He Style
, and Sun Style
. I have no familiarity with He Style and found this video of He Youlu (和有禄)
interesting. Notice, for instance, the orientation and straightness of the back leg in what is presumably Single Whip.
The last four parts of the video section have various other Tai Chi videos, including the Chen Style vs. Muay Thai fights, some push hands competition, and a short clip on a Qin Na application.
There is also a photo section (in Chinese only) with some cool photos, including these shadow art photos
of various masters, including Chen Xiaowang and Chen Zhenglei.
