Wow, that guy is very impressive. He's put in ALOT of hours, to be able to just know which spot to go for by his opponents movements.

Wow, yeah that is impressive, it's a shame that the quality of the video is quite poor. It's pretty scary how effortlessly he taking that guy down, I wonder if that was improv or whether he as just showing different techniques. But cool find.

Looked like improvisation, to me. If it is, it's very impressive.

Mmm yeah it did to me too as they were sort of grinning at each other, but you can never tell. I'm not completely up on my martial arts but Wing Chun is one of the arts that uses the momentum of the attacker to counter attack isn't it?

Twould be tai chi that, Wing chun is about angles, shortest distances and speed.

Ah right, I thought tai chi was a form of meditation, I didn't realise you could practice it as a martial art in the sense of Kung Fu, Karate etc

you generally cant... per se, because most tai chi schools dont practice that application of it. but there is a combat form/application that is a mix of what you see, and a mild form of aikido (going by visuals rather than techniques)

ive not ever experenced it, but its meant to be a effective style... although it would hold the same pitfalls as most other soft arts.... they usually take a lot longer to become street effective.

wow, he was fast if that was improv.
Isn't tai chi energy movement and all that good stuff?
