FROM THE STRAITS TIMES
CHENGDU – A debate about modern fighting techniques versus traditional Chinese martial arts spilled into the ring, ending in a lopsided victory for the former in a fight staged in Sichuan province last Thursday (April 27).
Mixed martial arts fighter Xu Xiaodong wiped the floor with taiji master Wei Lei, with the duel lasting a mere 10 seconds.
In a video circulating on social media, Xu is seen starting the fight in an aggressive boxing stance, while Wei – a self-proclaimed founder of a “thunder-style” of taiji – adopted a crane-like pose.
