    From what I know about Tai Chi it has nothing to do with Spaceballs. Here is the video and you can judge for yourself.

    Schwantz. It's German slang for exactly what you think it is.

    First there are branches of Tai Chi some are not fighting styles more here:- Tai chi - Wikipedia

    They are more about relaxation Qi Gong / Chi Power......... etc

    The more aggressive styles of Tai Chi are similar to Wushu





    I think like I have said a few times in various threads its more about the person how they represent their martial arts knowledge and skills or proficiency, as the they learn the art but train for the fight, so to speak.

    If you are not fit, but overweight, flat footed no spring in your feet, can barely run up and down its not the Martial Art form style but again you representing it.

    They just don't train their bodies in every area like jumping high for kicks or good punching power or good footwork its just not their, makes you wonder what are they on about.

    I think some people just enjoy the martial art style but don't know how to use it in a real fight they are like a statue they don't move or perform.

    They simply don't represent themselves or the martial art they claim to master or practice!


    Anyway I also was looking at this...................

    Yeah but it is also like a mate of mine who wanted to do MMA cos he was pretty strong and that.

    And I had to explain that they are all pretty strong.

    At some point you may run up against a guy who is not a chump. At which point you need your house in order.

    IMNSHO, that's reason enough to ignore him.

    Wu Shu (武術), pronounced in Japanese as bujutsu, literally translates as "martial skills/arts". Taiji chuan (Taiji/Tai Chi) is one form of martial arts, specifically Chinese... hence, Taiji IS Wu Shu (Chinese martial arts).

    A matter of curiosity, Chris - is there a Chinese equivalent of Japanese "do" that is used much in relation to martial arts?

    Well, "do" is the Japanese on'yomi pronunciation of the Chinese character 道... the kun'yomi (native Japanese) reading is "michi"... which is pronounced "tao" in Chinese. As in "Taoism", "Taoist", "The Tao of Jeet Kune Do" (which always amuses me... "the way of the way of the intercepting fist"... ha!). Aside from the JKD book title, despite Taoism being a major influence on a number of Chinese systems, I am unfamiliar with any categorisation of martial systems using the term, the same way that "Do" is used for Judo, Kendo, Karate-do, Iaido, Kyudo etc.

    Thanks. I knew "tao" was also translated to "way" (so the above has always amused me, too), but wasn't aware it was the same word (which makes it even more odd - like saying it is amusingly amusante.

    I'd tell them to work on avoidance at all costs! ...after all, with that kind of training, if they ever have to use it, somebody is going to get really messed up.

    I just wouldn't waste my time pointing out who that somebody is going to be. ;)

    Ive actually confronted The Pinkman about his experience with martial arts, he claims to be a pitfighter but when i asked him for any kinda video proof or picture proof he would never provide it. All he would give me was a excerpt from a Bullshido interview he claims is him.
